I'm 39 years old, I was diagnosed with lupus 2 years ago. Unfortunately government hospitals can only do that much for me and I have to find help at a private health care provider. I see a private rheumatologist and do my lupus I am unemployed. I am due for a checkup but unfortunately the checkup amounts to R10,000(ZAR)(750USD). I was supposed to go last month already but due to lack of funds, I can't. I need to go for a checkup as they do blood work and adjust my medication accordingly. If my medication isn't adjusted accordingly the lupus can start attacking my organs. So I desperately need the money to go to this appointment. I only go for an appointment twice a year, but unfortunately I am unemployed because of my lupus. No one will give me a job when they hear I have lupus.
