US$50.00raised of $300.00 goal
Hello. I'm from Guatemala. In the year 2019 I started to have problems with my temporomandibular joint. At first I didn't know why I was in so much pain. The doctors thought he had an infection. But the inflammation of my joint gives me an earache. I did several treatments. I spent a lot of money on medicine. I'm recommended to wear an occlusal guard. Over the course of time developing anxiety. They had to medicate me because I tried to kill myself. I received psychological therapy but it was not enough. In February 2020, I was doing the paperwork to write my thesis and graduate from law school. But the pandemic started. I wanted to start working to pay for my treatment. To start earning some money, start a shop on Redbubble. I decided to open a campaign on Gogetfunding to raise some money. Someone gave me a donation of $50 and that made me very happy. But I need to raise a little more. In September 2021 my condition worsened. The pain increased. I looked for help. People from an association spoke to me to help me. They are dedicated to helping people. They sent me the money so that I could pay for the trip to see a specialist. The surgeon told me that I needed a CT scan of my joint. I made the trip. They did the CT scan. The report indicates that I have bilateral maxillary sinusitis. I have a mandibular deflection. When I open my mouth my jaw moves to the right. In the month of December of the year 2021 they took the mold to make a muscle relaxant guard. So my jaw didn't get too much pressure. The pressure has caused pain in my teeth. Treatment is long term. Right now I need to go to the dentist because he started having difficulties. I have pain and discomfort in the gums. I haven't been able to travel because I don't have the resources. I've been postponing the trip. I need to travel to continue with the treatment. My family has been going through problems. Even though I am having bouts of depression I am not giving up. I have a crazy idea to fight for my life. All I want right now is to get my health back and start working. My family needs me. I hope someone can help me. Maybe you can help me by making a small donation to my campaign or by sharing my store link with your friends. Anyone can send me a message without problem. I have an account on Airtm if I like to help me. Thank you very much and I apologize.
