I was bitten by a #tick in 2011 & it's turned my worle upside down!
I was a practicing trial atty & am now on a walker.
I contracted E. Chaffeensis, Rickettsia of unknown et., & #Lyme.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. By then, the tick bacteria had invaded my spinal fluid/brain.
I also contracted Coxsackie B4 virus, a cousin of polio.
Because I was on antibiotics for 19 YRS, my immune system was severely impaired; I've lost most use of my left side (I'm left-handed).
My now 77-year-old mom is my caregiver. She helps me bathe/dress/drives, cooks
My now 77-year-old mom does everything for me: she cooks & cleans, laundry, etc.
During 1 of my hospitalizations, I caught Vanc-resistant C. Diff. I fought it for 3.5 yrs but had to have 2 FM transplants.
Now, I can't digest/absorb food w/out enteral food RX that's $198/mo. 💔
I am now unable to digest food or absorb nutrients w/out EnteraGam. 👇 It's $198/mo. It's norm. $1600/mo but I get a pharmaceutical scholarship.
My now 77-year-old mom is my caregiver. We get $64/mo for food + trying to save our home.

@DemForLife3 My now 77-year-old mom, Carolyn, @DemForLife3, is my caregiver & she's really struggling. She has to load/unload walker, cook, clean, etc.
She's utterly exhausted. 😩
We get $64/mo for food: it's long gone.
We've gone to the food pantry but they had rice, beans, but I can't eat.
@DemForLife3 Please help us! 😩
This is my now 77-year-old mom & me. 👇
She's my caregiver & she can't afford my RX @$198/mo I need to DIGEST food. The $64/mo for food, SNAP, only lasts a wk-wk & 1/2.
I am on a medically prescribed FODMAP diet from Stanford.

@DemForLife3 Please!
Even $5 or $10 will help!
My 77-year-old mom has to raise $198 every mo for the RX, EnteraGam, that allows me to DIGEST/ ABSORB food. We get $64/mo for food.
We need help! She's exhausted trying to care for me.
Anything, including RTs, will help!
