She takes care of ME-Life sure has a sense of humor.
My brother we lost in an auto accident at age 19. #MothersDay
My best friend and reason for fighting my illnesses. #MothersDay
Her love of her life! Married 40 years before cancer took him from us.
I was sworn in as an attorney in October & my Dad was Dxd in December.
I eventually closed my law office and moved back home to be his caregiver.
Then I was bitten by a tick, contracted Coxsackie B4 virus, fought a 3.5 yr battle w/Vanc-resistant C. Diff., had 2 FM transplants.
Now, I have a brain tumor/ IIH-have had 8 spinal taps, and she's MY caregiver at 77.
I can't digest food w/out EnteraGam: an RX that's $198/mo., even w/manufacturer's pharma scholarship.
We can't afford it. We get $1.50/day for food + trying to save home.
She's my now 77-year-old caregiver. This isn't how either of us envisioned her 'golden years' .
She helps me bathe, dress; she drives me to my weekly Dr appts & loads/unloads my walker.
She's Carolyn (@DemForLife3).
She has a GoFundMe that's been verified by prominent #healthcare writers of the Resistance. It's her "pinned Tweet".
We can't afford my RX, we often don't have enough to eat, & are trying to save our home. #Disability filed in 2015.
@DemForLife3 Please help us in any way possible- RTs count!
Even $5 or $10 would help. Trying to raise $ for my April RX. I can't digest food w/out it. I have severe enteropathy.
We can't afford it.
Get $1.50/day for food & trying to save our home.
Reduced to begging on Twitter for help. 💔
@DemForLife3 Need $198/mo for RX 👇
I have such severe intestinal damage bc of 3.5 yr fight w/Vanc-resistant C. Difficile & 2 FM transplants that my body cannot absorb nutrients.

@DemForLife3 Here's some food a friend sent us but it's been over a yr ago.
Because my mom is 77 and I am disabled, she & I are terrified about what will happen if she passes before me.
We owe $2000 in taxes on our home.
Trump, McConnell, GOP plan to defund #Medicare, #Medicaid, & #SSI. 🚨🚨
@DemForLife3 Please help us. 💔 😢
@DemForLife3 I was taken by EMS to the hospital again about 3 wks ago.
Now they've found 2 "cysts" in my Rt. kidney, exactly where the new pain/swelling is. I see the Urologist Tuesday & in the coming weeks, a urogynecologist, & a Nephrologist.
Barely hanging on.
🚨🚨🚨 SOS
@DemForLife3 Please help us RT. Maybe someone who can help will see this and read about our journey.
We are exhausted.
I was a practicing trial atty & my 77-year-old mom is an RN who worked until she was 75.
We've helped other people our entire lives: now we need help.
It's humiliating. 😭
@DemForLife3 @threadreaderapp Please unroll 💕 Julie
Btw, "I have become my mother"- l think look just like her now or maybe she looked like me then.
(I'm encouraged by it bc I think she's beautiful).
More importantly, she has a huge heart.
She took me to my 1st protest when I was about 8 yrs. old. #strongwoman
#WomenWhoRock 💪
Every day, my 77-year-old mom & I make 5 calls each day (often more & sometimes to the same certain Senate Maj. Leader. We use resistbot, we're involved w/MomsDemand, EveryTown; we marched in Louisville to protect Mueller- even though I was on a walker & she has 2 titanium knees.
In law school (Univ. of Louisville, Brandeis), I was an editor for 'The Journal Of Law And Education', I was 1 of 2 clerks for 'The Harter Chair of Corporate Law', & I clerked for & became an Associate of the top criminal defense attorney:
now, I struggle to complete a sentence
This brain tumor/IIH, white matter/damage to my left frontal lobe, & issue with my pons (nevermind the 9mm pineal cyst, empty sella) & the 8 spinal taps I've had to relieve pressure on my brain have left me: struggling w/memory issues & spelling.
But, I have it better than many.
I am grateful for every morning I wake up, I still have my mom, for the time being we have a roof over our head. I have clothes to wear & most days, I have something to eat.
I am so touched by all of you who help RT, pray for us, & donate.
I 💘 my Twitter family+now my mom's on.
He looks sooo young. 💔
