Hi, my name is Jaime. I am in some hard times right now, I was diagnosed with a time of disorder that effects my autonomic system. I was working lots of different jobs before I got pregnant, including being an exotic dancer. After I had my son I had extreme postpartum depression and was terrified to leave him alone. At that same time I was in an abusive relationship. My son’s father would break me down every day and tell me how unworthy of love I was. I left the day he laid his hands on me and I never looked back. Now he is not apart of my son’s life, he had another child that I believe he left behind as well, and the child support office cannot find him. So as of recently due to extremely hard times, I went back to the adult entertainment industry because I will do anything to make sure my son is supported. Unfortunately, I began fainting, vomiting, my heart rate began to skyrocket for absolutely no reason, I felt like I was going to die my heart hurt so bad, daily. Not only that I’ve begun developing allergies to nearly everything it feels like, blood pools in my legs and feet often making them swollen. I have developed a type of neuropathy that makes a lot of my body feel painful to the touch, and my feet feel like they are on fire. Due to these issues dancing is nearly impossible. The physical stress is nearly unbearable, not to mention the mental toll it takes. But I get up every single day with my son, and I make sure he never knows that I am sick because he’s only 1, and his mommy is his whole world. I would never take that from him. I’m not saying I won’t work, I’m actively job searching for a job that isn’t so physical. Unfortunately that takes some time, which I do not have a lot of. I also plan to go back to school. I’m not a deadbeat parent, I’m not a bad person, and I truly just want something to help me and my son right now while I look for a job. We have bills, food needs, and of course diapers. Please consider us for your help, we could really use it.
