Hi, my name is Romarie. I was a hard worker from the age of 15 to 35 when I was diagnosed with auto-immune issues. From that time for a few years, I continued to work, but only part time as it was all that my body would allow. I’ve lived in constant pain since then.
After I gave up work (actually forced to), my loving parents took me in and have taken the best care of me. As you can imagine – I feel awful about this as I always imagined it would be me that would take care of them in their older years.
My poor health robbed me of my social life, of marrying and ever having children. My children have been fur babies. In April of last year (2021) I lost the fur baby that I was closest to. You can see a video about her HERE. When I lost her my world crashed because she was the first fur baby that I’d had that I was my 24/7. We knew each other completely. She laid down next to me at my worst pain times and helped make things better. When she became ill – it devastated me and losing her ALMOST killed me.
I do not yet collect Disability (I’m in appeals currently). My parents paid for us to mercifully help my sweet Gypsy girl across to the Rainbow Bridge. They paid for a beautiful urn and memorial for her. AND, months later they paid for my new baby Spencer.
My parents have been married 55 years. (They are pictured on their last anniversary) They are loving, amazing and have been good people to others their whole life. My only wish is to be able to give to them. I’m not looking for a fortune – but if I could pay them back for the things that have happened this past year and maybe a little more so that they could go somewhere – I would love that and be forever grateful. To give them something amazing for their 56th anniversary this coming June would be the absolute best.
Anyone who knows me – knows I never wish anything for myself – only for those I love. This is that. I don’t want the help just for me – but for my folks who have given me the best life they could. I want to be able to give to them. I want them to NOT have to worry about me financially anymore. I don’t want to be their burden (they’ve NEVER made me feel this way). I would just like to be able to give them a nice amount of money, maybe have a little left over for me to take care of Spencer so I don’t have to request the money back from them.
Thank You for taking the time to read this. Thank you for your consideration.
