I am dependent on donations to be able to buy food. I don't buy supplements or other items anymore. I am living day by day, never knowing if I will be able to buy food next week.
After talking with social workers and trying to get government help, I found out that I don't qualify for getting disability help from the Social Security in my country because Environmental Illnesses are completely unknown here. I can't fit in any of their boxes.
I can't get the regular financial support provided to those who are unemployed either, because this benefit assumes people are healthy and able to work and they must go to training programs and do "voluntary" work for the local government entities in order to get their money. I can't meet their requirements because I am too ill.
Though my health has improved a lot due to mold avoidance, I still have very low energy levels and short duration environmental exposures to toxins when I go out can set my health back weeks at a time and leave me severely incapacitated for a long time.
It has been only months since I started this healing approach, I know it takes time to heal after being ill for so many years. I feel confident that some day I will be able to work again and support myself, but I am not there yet. Not having adequate nutrition and practical support is also delaying this process...
But all I can do is live one day at a time, do the best I can and hope for a positive outcome to my story.
Thank you all!
