Alyssa's need for better Health Care
Organized by: Alyssa Dee
My name is Alyssa. I live and breath BC air everyday. Since my first day on this planet I have lived on Vancouver Island, I love it here. But not everything has loved me. I was diagnosed at 15 years old with Ulcerative Colitis. But I still didn't let that bring me down! I love being outside, I love everyone I met everyday. But then I got sicker, my adolescent mind m learned that what I had, was staying for life. For those unfamiliar with Ulcerative Colitis, it's quite like Crohn's just lower in the bowels. I have ulcers that line my intestines and the inside of anus. With Colitis my diet is very little choice. My body can't break down much food with out putting me in pain. Here we are, at the reason I started this go fund me project. I have no Health Care to cover my visits to the hospital or Doctor, I don't have pharm-care to cover medication. I once did but was pulled off the plan. ( my parents had a divorce and dad was not happy) Why don't I have these things? Work. Don't get me wrong, I am a working gal, have been up to this year. I'm 25 now. But my Colitis had finally gotten in the way. More bathroom breaks then one work place can handle. Days I call in becuase I can't leave my own bathroom. It got hard. I've been trying to get disability but as it stands "I'm still good enough to work". No I am not. In the last few months of trying to get by, I have no food really left, my vehicle can't be driven as I have no money for it. My shaw and telus have been cut off. Luckily my roommate has been covering hydro while I barely come up with money for rent. I can't keep doing this. I'm sicker now then I have ever been. I never really tried these gofunds before but I have been told that there is people out there willing to help me. So here is my cry for help.
If anything I'm looking for advice, NOT money. I'm sorry if it looks like that
