I worked hard since leaving school up until 3 years ago, when I started to become ill. After months and months of tests, scans etc etc, I was finally given multiple diagnoses, fibromyalgia, spondyloarthritis, sjogrens, chronic fatigue, obstructive sleep apnea and osteoarthritis, along with the stress, anxiety and depression which go along with this. I am only 45, I was a highly active person, loved life and had loads of energy. Was pretty infamous for my infectious laugh. I would do anything for anyone, and also did a lot of things for charity, especially Macmillan, whom I have a lot of experience with through family loss. My life has drastically changed, and I find it so soul destroying, I don’t want to live my life in pain, constant tiredness and a feeling of general uselessness, I actually hate my life so much now. I’ve tried to keep going, but there just isn’t opportunity in this country for people like me, I can’t work properly, nor can I afford my own property, I struggle with rented, all my savings have now depleted to nothing. Things that improve my health no end are things such as thermal baths, but there isn’t much opportunity here in UK within a cost I could manage on a regular basis or without significant travel involved. With all this in mind, I have decided, moving away from the UK would be a vast improvement to my quality of life, and I am now trying to raise funds for that move. I have found a property in Hungary, near to thermal baths, which are much cheaper than here and easily accessible for people with disabilities such as mine. I do not want to just spend my life sitting and hoping for change, I want to make it happen. My plan is to use the land with the house to begin a small scale glamp/camp site, with a small alpaca farm. I have also spent my time ill, doing studies, and will utilise my TEFL qualification to run little English classes. I have also been studying reflexology & herbalism, so would want to offer classes etc in those subjects. I’m aiming for a very simple lifestyle, to generate a small income, I don’t need expensive or luxury living. These things will not happen overnight, I am thoroughly aware, but I have a very supportive husband, and we intend to get assistance with set up and running by using work away sites and offering board and lodging in return for help on the property. I would love to do this all in the UK, but there is no way we could ever manage to do this. I do not want to spend my days feeling like a burden, I want to do the best I can with the cards I’ve been dealt. I do not like asking for help, but if I am to make my new life a reality, I have no other options available. So I am biting the bullet and asking for help to get this started, I’m currently selling off everything I own, but I will need a further £5000 to get this off the ground and get myself moved over to Hungary as soon as possible. I am so grateful for any help that anyone reading this would be able to give.
