Our friend Kitty has been suffering from severe Fibromyalgia for several months. She is such a sweet person and we really want to help her. Please take some time to read this and give your support!

“My name is Kitty, I'm 19 years old and I have Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a disorder in the part of the brain that sends pain signals out to the body when you get hurt. In people with FM, the brain is constantly sending out pain signals all over the body. It's not just a dull ache either, a lot of the time it feels like all of your limbs are being broken over and over again. Let me try and describe what it's like to have Fibromyalgia:
Fibromyalgia is when your mom comes into your room to shut your windows so the neighbors won't hear you screaming.
Fibromyalgia is slowly losing the ability to do all the things you love and feeling like there's nothing else.
Fibromyalgia is realizing you were wrong about not being able to do anything when you stop being able to leave your bed for most of the day.
Fibromyalgia is losing all your friends because nobody can be bothered to keep in contact with the girl they used to hang out with once a week because it's too inconvenient for them to call, text, or drop by once in a while.
Fibromyalgia is feeling like a burden when you hear your parents talking about how they hope they'll have enough money for the doctor visit and all the medication each month.
Fibromyalgia is always having to hear people tell you that you need to "just try harder, work through the pain, you can't get better if you don't try to exercise," because they assume that if you're sick it must be because you aren't trying hard enough to get better.
Fibromyalgia is feeling thankful that the pain was only horrible instead of excruciating today.
There's a lot more to it than that, but I think you're starting to get at least a faint view of the picture. So, here's my problem. I don't have health insurance. I live in a family of five living off of one person's income. I have to see the doctor once a month.

My social life has been greatly effected(affected?) by this illness. I used to go out everyday and just do whatever I felt like. I would stay away from home for days just to hang out with friends. I hung out with at least someone everyday. I was so independent. Now I'm lucky if I get to leave the house once a month for something other than the doctor. I used to know a lot of people, but now I only have a few friends. I just want my social life back. Right now I need a cane to walk short distances, so it would be really helpful to get a wheelchair. My family can barely afford food and medication, so getting a wheelchair is impossible.
I feel so helpless, and everything seems impossible. If anyone can help me out in any way at all, that would be incredible. Thank you and DFTBA.”

With your help we can raise enough money to get her a good wheelchair. No donation is too small, every penny counts. So please help her get her life back
Thank you!
