My name is Isabelle and I need your help to move elsewhere in the Paris area due to a violent neighbourhood. I’ve got a freak neighbour and, the other day, she broke into my family home, shouted dead threats to my sick son and myself. Then I have been strangled and struck. She is often out of control but usually she caused significant damages to my car. In despite of the police’s intervention, she is not incarcerated for her crimes and now I am scared into my own house for my children’s lives and mine’s. Now, I am living with the fear of her next mental crisis. This time, it’s gone too far. This is why I need to move.
Besides these problematic relations with neighbours, I have to handle my son’s medical condition and financial issues. My son, Cyril, and I have a genetical bones condition, in resume excess bones which increase on articulations.
But my son’s condition is much harder because he couldn’t write anymore, his wrists were blocked. The last past years, he used a computer with vocal typing at the high school. But the pain was so awful and the physical handicap’s bigger and bigger. Last year, the surgeon launched a surgery but the benefits were equal to none, even worse. Since, my son is living with chronic pains.
He’s 19 and, for him, life is ended. He can barely sleep, the pain is above all pain scales and any medical treatment is working. Sadly he gave up his informatics studies because he couldn’t follow the classes. Nowadays, he has no more hope.
This situation lasted for one year and a half. One year and six months with insomnia, increase pain, and a lot of doctors with no solutions. Cyril is exhausted: nervously, physically and mentally, and so I am.
Worse, he is now living with deep depression and suicidal desires. I am alone, with his sister, to take care of him. I have no family or friends for helping. Their father disappeared in the same time of the surgery. I have my own medical conditions with this disease and barely can walk, so I am in a long term work stopping.
Unfortunately, chronic pain’s treatments got only 30% of success. My son is in the 70% group of unfortunate patients.
On my side, I’ve got key issues. I took several loans for extra medical fees (psychic therapies, remedies, hospital fees) but with only my savings and a big rent, I can barely face to those extra fees and my rent. At the end of November, I wouldn’t have anymore sufficient resources.
I can’t go back to my work due to other legal issues and because I can’t leave my son alone due to the permanent fear of a suicidal attempt. However I have a professional retraining project with an e-learning law diploma for becoming a legal expert or a lawyer. So I could have a distance work and an adaptable schedule for my son’s needs. This is my dream and my solution if I may be able to finance it.
Above all, my main wish is finding the treatment which could save and relieve my son and I am praying for this. I tried almost everything: acupuncture, hypnosis, relaxation: nothing. Medical drugs: nothing. Antidepressant: nothing. Actually, he is trying art therapy; maybe this could light his mental pain.
Thank you for your concern and all my blessings.
