ABOUT ME (Description)
I am determined to recover my health despite being very unwell for many years. My days at present are very limited, and I am resolute in overcoming incredibly painful symptoms. I require help with most daily activities.
I am a vibrant young woman with a determined spirit who has so much to contribute in the world, and I'm looking for help to support me towards this aim.
I am looking for a magical helper(s) to support me to regain my life.
My illness has left with limited ability to speak due to a chronically sore throat (days vary as to how much I can manage but in 2015 I could not speak for a year.
I am 24/7 bedridden (but have the capacity to move). I have a complex gastric condition which is by far the most devastating aspect of my condition.
From a friend: "She is the most brave and courageous person I know and is literally fighting for her life. She wants health more than anyone I know."
