hi hi, my name is Bella i live in Trinidad currently and i’ve had clear autoimmune disease symptoms since about my mid teens. i was always a very quiet kid and was too scared to even voice any of my concerns until i met more and more people with autoimmune diseases themselves. im so lucky to have that understanding from my favorite people and im sure if you have any kind of chronic illness you know how important that understanding is! i was pushed and highly encouraged to start my health investigation in late 2023 by my lovely boyfriend and since then i’ve seen dozens of doctors and i’ve only been able to get so far on my own in terms of funds, in the past 6 months i’ve had to quit about 3 jobs because of how much my health is holding me back especially with vague diagnosis’s and just guesses from my doctors like crohns disease, graves' disease, celiac disease, unknown autoimmune, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, SVT depression, anxiety and OCD as well as misdiagnosis’s for graves’ disease and a couple others. my main source of income after i quit my jobs was making hand tufted rugs and at this point i can’t even afford my material to make my rugs. that being said im at the point right now i can’t afford to buy anymore of my meds including antidepressants, sleep meds, anti anxiety meds, stomach meds and my pain meds. it would mean the world to get some financial help so i can do the tests i need, pay for the meds i need, pay off some medical debt and get back focused on my one true passion, film!
thank you for reading a bit of my story,
x bella

    Get well Bella

  • been in a terrible flare up these past couple weeks, in and out of valley medical as well as public healthcare, only answer from any new doctor i’ve seen is once again an unknown autoimmune disease.
    the only pure relief i get during these flares is when im hooked up to a bag of fluid full of meds.
    on days where im having an “okay” one im never completely pain free or nausea/stomach pain relief.
    all this to say i think im giving up on an answer.
    thank you all for your support, it helped me immensely and if anyone would still like to donate it’ll go towards my very expensive meds and medical debt.
    i’m tired and i give up.
    thank you forever, bella x
