Thanks for taking the time to look at my page.
I'm 31, I live with my partner who is also my carer and my two beautiful children who are 9 and 6.
I suffer from ankylosing spondylitis an autoimmune disease that affects the spine. Also I have arthritis in my hip, I also have dystonia which is a neurological condition that contracts the muscles in both hands and feet. On top of that I have fybromyalgia which is such a debilitating disease that affects every aspect of my day to day living. Living with chronic pain and fatigue is so mind destroying that I also suffer from depression. Every day is a battle just to do simple tasks such as get out of bed and shower.
I spend a lot of time in hospital with these conditions and can be in for months at a time.
The reason I have set up this campaign is to raise funds to have equipment at home that will alow me to be more independent and hopefully stay at home longer instead of having to stay in hospital.
I recently met my first target of £4000 which will allow me to purchase my profiling bed and my travel mini scooter.
I currently have a stair lift in my house to allow me to get up and down my stairs independently. The house that I am in no longer meets my physical needs which means we need to move house. As you know it is very difficult to find accommodation to suit all the families needs but most importantly my independence. The next property we move to most likely we will need to put a stair lift in. So any donations I get now will go towards that.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this. If you decide to donate to this campaign you would be making a big impact on keeping a mum at home and more independent.
