Okay citizens of tumblr, my final and desperate plea.
I’ve said it before, ‘this is hard to do’ ‘I should be able to support myself’ etc. etc. etc. but I’m now past the point of having pride.

I struggle to keep the story short, but here goes: I’ve had Type 1 diabetes for nearly 16 years. Between 2009-2013 I had mysterious symptoms that doctors couldn’t get to the bottom of that completely stopped me from functioning in day to day life. Bed bound, and often hospital bound, I had to leave university.

After much fighting with doctors and paying privately, I was finally diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. In July 2013 I had a ‘flare up’ of both conditions and ended up in intensive care, being told I might not make it through the night. A wake up call for a 20 year old.

I’m now on a clinical trial for the POTS and my diabetes is back under control. I still have bad episodes, but I’m better. After my wake up call, I decided not to settle and to try and go back to university on my dream degree program at UCL.

However it’s become increasingly clear that I can’t fund this anymore.

I’ve now found out that I do have a place, if I can sit the exam - but that is slipping away. I have been unwell in the past month, again, and have barely been paid enough to just ‘survive’, despite trying to work nearly full time, without tuition costs, exam costs etc. 

50p, £1, will help. I’m so close, but so far away, and without at least part paying for rest of the exams and tuition in the next week, it’s all over. I will be heartbroken, but at least I can say I tried. I need to raise as much as possible.

Reblog it, tweet it, Facebook it, spread the word, and I am forever in your debt. You can read the full, longer story, here.

Donate.
I know I’m a stuck record right now, but persistence is the key to… success? I’m not sure that’s a real quote…
I have been given my dream place at UCL, but I need to be able to afford to sit the exam + tuition to take it.
To the two people who donated this week: I am so immensely grateful it’s too difficult for not-eloquent-me to put into words!
