Hi. I'm Mamta. I'm 23 years old. I have been suffering from Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and transverse myelitis for the last 5 years...
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels. There is no cure for lupus, but medical interventions and lifestyle changes can help control it.
In my case... My spinal cord and legs has been severely affected.... I was further attacked by a rare disease associated with SLE i.e. transverse myelitis
Transverse myelitis is a disorder of the nervous system linked to inflammation of the spinal cord. It is very rare, affecting approximately 1% of patients with lupus.
Due to which my lower waist down body doesn't work... And I can't walk or do my regular activities, there is no power in my legs and my lower body parts... There's no bladder control either...
Treatment of this is very lengthy and costly.... doctors have told me to for plasma therapy and physiotherapy sessions and I'm receiving medication at Safdarjung Hospital.
My father is a mason and we cannot afford my treatment... We are managing my medicine with very difficulties from last 5 years
My studies have been terribly disrupted by this... I'm only at home from last 5 years...I was really a good student in my school time... I scored 88% in class12th with the science stream... But couldn't continue further due to my disease
This is my last and only hope...to get back to a normal life....
I request all of you to please help me with my treatment. Even your Little contribution will mean a lot to me.I want to get well... I wants to walk... I want to study further...and wants to live a normal life
Please please please help me for my treatment🙏
