I just created a post but forgot to add my paypal link and I have no idea how to find it or if I can’t edit it. I’m a 30 year old chronically ill woman (I have severe Interstitial Cystitis, suffer from psychiatric issues and a bunch of other health problems) who is unable to work due to her condition and I live with my mother who has heart problems, has had heart surgery, suffers from severe hypertension and depends on medication to live, I also can’t stop taking my medication. We have always struggled to make ends meet but ever since the lockdown started things have been really hard to two people who struggle with chronic illness and can’t make ends meet on a regular basis. My mother refused retirement because she would get even less money, she has worked the same minimum wage job for 20 years at a big supermarket here in Europe. She gets around 650 euros as a salary, our rent is 360 euros, with electricity, water, gas, internet (we have the cheapest package) medication we are left with around 100 euros, if not less, to eat and to pay for any medical emergencies that my happen ( when you are chronically ill there’s always a medical emergency, I’m going through one right now, two infections and I have no money for the cleaning supplies to keep it clean and avoid losing my finger and the trips to the doctor by public transportation). Thankfully I don’t have to pay for the doctor appointments or my many ER visits. We often don’t have food and have run out of essential medication. Due to the pandemic the shelves are empty, what’s left behind are the more expensive brands and we had to buy those because we needed to eat, I will give you an example, we used to buy this no brand rice that costs 90 cents, it was gone, all that was left behind was the very expensive rice that costs 2 euros, the same thing happened with milk, cereal, yogurts, canned goods, toilet paper and basic hygiene and cleaning supplies. That left us with no other option than to buy those and be left with no money to buy foor or medication for the rest of the month of march and april. I attached a picture of some of our medication, we have run out of some of them, there’s plenty missing because they were in another room, they are mostly heart related medication, blood pressure medication, medication for my bladder condition, psychiatric medication and other medication I use to deal with the symptoms of some of my conditions. I was also going to attach some pictures of our bills and pharmacy receipts but you can only upload one picture. Any help would be great, even if it’s just enough to buy rice and bread for the day we would be happy. Thank you.
