The way I was raised, you don't put your business in the street and
you don't beg for help. Too bad. I need help on a multitude of levels and this is my most recent phase of advocating for myself.
I am (1) volunteering to help train future physical therapists, chiropractors, bodywork and other specialists to
work on people like me by offering my body for practice. (2) Asking for help in receiving diagnostic testing, treatments,
supplements and care of physicians and therapists . (3) Offering myself as subject for people or institutions
who would like to document my issues or any of the issues that prevent Americans from returning to health if they don't have
wealth or insurance. Why?
For over 8 years I've tried to get help and care. I suffer from chronic medical conditions including fibromyalgia,
myofascial pain, and osteoarthritis...and many more. My back is twisted, my neck is straight, my muscles strained from trying
to hold the whole mess together. "Fibro fog" has been so severe I thought I had Altzheimer's. Dementia, in it's many
possible forms has not been ruled out. I have applied for assistance with lawyers: they don't get or help you find a
doctor for diagnosis or treatment. Navigating the government and social agencies is a nightmare with good health aad
consistent mental clarity. It's pretty impossible in my condition.
