Hi! Thanks to a large off site donation, I am closing this fundraiser. I appreciate everyone who helped, because I desperately need this pain relief. Thank you!

More Info

I have had chronic pain since I was 10 years old, due to a burn injury, and a abusive step father.

When I was in my 30's I learned the reason I heal so slowly is a condition called hypermobility. It cause my joints to dislocate and I'm unable to stretch or do things other people to do to loosen muscles, because it just pulls on my ligaments and makes it worse.

I tried to help my father after his stroke, but not even a stroke could make him a better person. My father took advantage of me and demanded higher and higher amounts of money until I was down to my emergency fund. My grandmother encouraged me to keep sending him everything I could. I should never have gotten involved. I know my dad doesn't respect his kids. But I wanted to help.

Now I'm trying to raise a small amount of money to help me access the care I need that will allow me to keep working. I did pick up a part time job but I won't see money from that until the beginning of August. I need pain relief as fast as possible so that I can start this new job and not have trouble with absenteeism due to this pain. 

There's a lot going on in the world and I understand if you need to support someone else. No pressure. If you would rather use paypal, please let me know. 

Thank you for your time.
