Last year I spent the summer in the hospital for three infections. I was on a job in Albany New York, and I wasn't feeling well. I thought I was just over worked. After the two weeks on the job were up and I was back home I wasn't feeling any better. The next day I woke up with horrible pain in my left hip. The doctor at emergency room at the hospital said that I hat a pinched nerve, gave me a prescription to pain killers and sent me home. After two days it was so bad I couldn't even crawl on the floor, so I went back and demanded for more tests. A blood test concluded that I had a staph infection, a muscle infection in my hip/lower back area and a bone infection in my hip. I finally got off antibiotics in January of this year, and got a new job. A few months went by and I started to feel sick again. I thought perhaps it was the same thing, but turns out I had walking pneumonia. At the same time, all in a two week period, I have had two deaths in my family and my step mom suffered two strokes, so I missed too much time at work and they had to let me go. Because of all this I have also lost my health insurance and my bills are piling up. The illnesses I have had have destroyed my teeth; my doctor says because my body was weak, lacked certain nutrients and my immune system was so low. I need help. Please any amount would be such a blessing.
