The Patrick Project

From Patrik English

Due to severe health issues I have become in deep debt and my credit is ruined. I live alone with no car, no furniture and need to get a decent car so I can go to the store and doctor appointments.

More Info

Despite the Photo I don't currently look that well. I am very skinny and fighting to hold on till I can see my new GI doctor. I have severe crohn's disease, I was diagnosed at 10 years old and have never been in remission. My life has never been an easy ride and its been a challenge getting this far.

I live daily in pain and agony and can't fully take care of myself. My family helps me as much as they can and it kills me I can't do much but sit here and do very little. I have since been trying to do hobby projects to make some extra money but that is difficult.

I had to supplement my income with credit last year before I got on section 8 and that has put me in a hard place. I sleep on an air mattress and have folding chairs. My apartment is mostly empty as I have little proper furniture. I love to cook and work on computers but can't even use those skills to make money at this point in my life.

I hope that once I see the new GI doctor he will have some options for me that might help get me into a remission state that will allow me to get a better life. I spend my days trying to enjoy TV or working on the computer but it is still rather difficult. Not even the Pain management helps much, I am at high risk to have to have parts of me removed and that scares me a lot. I hope we can avoid surgery which I am so lucky I have thus far.

I have done some college but had to drop out for some time as I couldn't even make my deadlines. I am facing another hospital stay and abscess drainage in the next month and just want to stay home. But I must face this challenge. I would really like a decent car that I don't have to have to get fixed every few months with money I wont have and I would like a proper bed and maybe couch for my living room.

Thanks to my mom I do have some nice kitchen things that allow me to cook some good food when I have a little bit of energy. And that is something that makes me happy. Feel free to ask any questions I don't have a social life at all and few friends. I hope to start a youtube channel someday but right now feel too weak to mess with that,
