Chronic illness (long covid)
I am Lievina, 23 years old and I have Long Covid. A disability not many people have heard of.
Hello, do you remember the Covid-crisis? With all the lockdowns and the lonely, scary times?
Are you glad it's all over? We can live our lives again.
Although, not all of us can. I have Long Covid. A chronic illness I got after a Covid infection. Over 65 million people worldwide suffer from it too.
The consequences of Long Covid are serious.
Our lives literally changed overnight. We were healthy and happy people, then we became ill. We are constantly tired and by moments in extreme pain.
I would like to raise money. First for myself to help pay for the medical bills. To try all sorts of therapies in order to regain my health (or at least some life quality).
If I raise enough money to try all kinds of different (alternative) therapies, I will be able to help others with Long Covid too. My experience will be valuable for science-research where governments fail to invest in proper research to find cures for Long Covid.
Because at this moment, there aren't any cures. Scientists speculate about many different causes. But again: no money available for proper research.
So every euro/dollar above my goal I will use to support other Long Covid patients. I will use the money to sponser research and to pay for the medical bills of other Long Covid-patients. Because I know what it's like to suffer from this terrible illness.
Thank you for reading this and thanks for your support.
P.S.: the minimum amount you can give (5 euro) is set by this platform, not by me.
