I desperately need your help. I am chronically ill, housebound, unable to work and in extreme pain every second of my life. I run out of my painkiller that works well for me. It is unavailable on the NHS and I have tried everything on the NHS already including the strongest of all painkillers. I can only get this from private doctors and the cost is very high so as I can’t work, I can’t afford it.
I have no other choices of painkiller as the strongest on the NHS doesn’t work anymore! That is why this is so important.
Please if you have a few pounds/dollars/whatever to spare, please help me. I really hate asking for help and it is embarrassing, but I have no one to ask!
Read on and you will see why I need your help so desperately, or you can just check out the JustGiving page if you prefer.
If you didn’t know already, I am crowdfunding painkillers I need for chronic pain. You can read my initial post here.
I managed to get just over 40% of the way (target being a years worth) but the money I raised so far runs out in October, so I have one more month and then I run out! I need this for life. Every single day. The pain is just so extreme.
There is a lot of information on the last post and the JustGiving page if you would like to check that out. There is proof of cost, invoices, my list of medications from my GP and more.
I won’t say it all again, but basically I get just over £300 a month total income (disability). I can’t work at all and am housebound. It is all I qualify for basically because I didn’t pay NI as I worked as hard and as long as I could before not being able to work at all, so working part time meant I didn’t pay NI and therefore don’t qualify for ESA. As I can’t afford rent anywhere in the country, I don’t have a landlord so their income gets taken into account as well for UC.
That is why I just get PIP and that is it!
If you want more info, my FAQ has more info on why I can’t get more than £300 a month.
I have to pay bills, food medication etc. My medication totals £206 a month!!! That is just under £11 a month NHS prescriptions and £195 private doctor prescriptions. That is why I need your help!
I have severe chronic pain and other chronic issues. The chronic pain is the worst at 10 out of 10, leaving me bedbound screaming night and day in pain. I wanted to die as it is just so unbearable without the painkillers. I have Fentanyl, Morphine and Cannabis. All legally prescribed.
The fentanyl and morphine don’t do much anymore so the pain is a 8 and close to a 9 again, and I have withdrawals between patches, which I change every 48 hours rather than 72 hours as they run out quick for me and give me severe chills, sweating and more pain which are withdrawals between patches so I have to use them at 48 hours which is more frequently that it is meant to be used so that means I have to speak to my doctor every 3 weeks!
The cannabis can’t be prescribed by NHS doctors for chronic pain so I have to see a private doctor. This costs £195 a month for 6 months then £150 a month after than and £45 fee on top every 3 months.
If you have a few pounds/dollars to spare or a bit more than that, please help. Anything helps and you can donate from anywhere.
I have no parents alive, no grandparents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles etc. I have no blood relatives alive.
I can’t work and £300 a month isn’t enough to live on as it is, let alone £206 a month purely in prescription costs, let alone the food and bills costs as well. Clearly I can’t afford this. This is why I need your help.
If you can help, check out my JustGiving page where you can donate from anywhere in the world! I also have other ways you can donate too such as crypto donations too!
