Hi! I am Paula. I had an accident last 2014 that injured and severed my lumbar from L4-L5 and L5-S1. The effects was an unbearable pain in the back, and numbness on my lower body. I have gone to the hospital a couple of times for recovery. However, due to lack of financial resources, for almost a year I wasn't able to continue my physical therapy and medications. The cost is too high that me and my husband can't afford it. I had braces for my back, but it has already worn out and is broken.
I was supposedly for operation, however, we don't have half a million for it. So me and my husband went to other options by continuing to do physical therapy amd medications, hoping I won't need an operation.
I am currently studying, and my husband works as a part time instructor in the state university where I am studying. We don't have kids yet because I can't add weight to my body, or else it will cause paralysis on my end.
Because of my condition, my physical activities are limited, that includes doing house chores and other major school activities. I cannot walk properly, and every night I suffer sharp pain in the lower back up to my toes, since my condition hasn't been better.
It is hard to live up to the cares and expectations of the world because of the very limited mobility that I have.
I am required to go back doing my physical therapy, and continue with my medications, and physical fitness exercises. I am asking to those who are kindhearted to please help me with these endeavor. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much!
