Hello everyone, my name is Destiny and here is my story. I have been plagued with multiple chronic illnesses. My life took a change when I was 12 years old. Between dizzy spells and losing the ability to walk it was a long road to find a diagnosis. In the past year I have been diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachychardia Syndrome (POTS), Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, fibromyalgia, gastroparesis and autism. POTS effects my autonomic nervous system and basically it controls my pulse and blood pressure and they fluctuate so much that it causes me to faint without notice. I have also had 5 concussions in the past year as well. Ehlers Danlos syndrome controls my connective tissue so my shoulders and hips dislocate and immobilize me until I am able to fix my joints. Fibromyalgia effects my nerve endings which makes me constantly be in pain over my entire body. Gastroparesis is where part of my stomach is paralyzed so I am unable to eat most days because my stomach does not digest food almost at all. I have tried dozens of medications and therapies and have no success as of now.
My life has changed so much in the past few years. I am unable to work due to the mobility issues and I also am on disability which makes it hard to always make ends meet.
I am asking for help in my goal of purchasing a GRIT wheelchair to help me get some of my life back. I will include a link to it below. I want to be able to participate in society and life in general. My passions include hunting and fishing and this will also enable me to participate in these activities so much easier. Thank you for taking the time to read this and consider helping me in my pursuit. Have a blessed day and I appreciate you all.
