My name is Chrissie and I’m 37 years old.
During lockdown in 2020 I found out I was expecting twins and was over the moon. However, I then miscarried of my babies and I was devastated.
After various scans and tests it was then discovered that my other baby was ectopic and wouldn’t survive and I was told it was life threatening to me. After months of physical and emotional pain, I had to be treated with a chemotherapy drug to help remove the pregnancy. This just floored me and recovery has been hard.
This was an extremely difficult time. With lockdown in place I wasn’t allowed anyone to be there with me throughout the many hospital visits and I was so isolated.
I have since been told that I will unlikely conceive again.
This has had a massive impact on my life. I lost a lot of income as I was unable to work and so the debt piled up considerably just to afford to live.
Now that the cost of living has reached crisis point in the UK I’m in the worst situation I’ve ever been in financially as I now can’t afford to cover my debt. I work 50+ hours a week but my low salary won’t cover the minimum payments and so it’s getting worse by the day.
This is a last resort for me before I lose my home. I just want to be able to put myself back together and start living my life again and really want to be able to afford the therapy I need to try and deal with the loss and come to terms with the fact I’ll never be a mum.
I’m not proud that I’m having to ask this, but if anyone can help me at, no matter how little, I’d be so grateful.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
