To all folks,
Thank you for your time for checking this post out.
My brother, Kevin, has recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. It has been a long and tiring journey for my mum and me. His illness has taken a toll on us. We love him and we want him to continue treatment and medicine to one day be okay again. It hurts my mum and she would cry everynight blaming herself.
I am the sole breadwinner of the family and has taken up part time jobs on top of my regular 8-6pm job. I am tired and I am feeling really hopeless right now.
The financial burden is worrying one as I don't know if I can continue this lifestyle. I love my brother and would do everything to get him well. I guess this is what is called, "caregiver burnout." Everyday I have to see my mum breaks down and could do much to comfort her. It breaks me.
My brother needs ECT treatment 3 times a week and a bi-weekly medicine and consultation. The medical expenses is too much for us.
I am on my knees, wishing for a miracle. I have set up this post to seek awareness to all people who is suffering mental illness and those who are taking care of one. It is not easy but life's journey is never a smooth-sailing ride, right? Keep it hanging and one day light will shine upon you and you will look back at this obstacles in life and laugh at it!
Lastly, any donations from you would be greatly appreciated. We are hoping to get as many donations to settle the bill and hope my mother will not be too stressed out over our financial situation. I, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and your time.
God bless you.
