Hello, I’m Adrien and I’m trying to raise money towards finally getting better.

I’ve dealt with a life-long disability of migraine with aura, migraines that occur about every other day and are so painful that I have to stay in bed all day.  Recently, these migraines began morphing into seizures, causing me to be hopitalised multiple times (once for 5 days) and drop out of college.

One of my seizures caused me to be in a bike accident that severed two of my fingers. I dealt with hospital visits and surgery and so much physical therapy because I did not want to lose the ability to use them. I’m a musician. I play violin. I play piano. Hell, I want to be a surgeon. Losing the use of my fingers has been devastating.

They work a little better now. But I still paid so much for what felt like so little improvement. Some people helped me out and I’m grateful to them. But I still wracked up so much in charges. I’m happy to use my fingers the small amount I can but that doesn’t change the bills I’m still paying for.

Then, about two weeks ago, I found out that I have multiple congenital heart defects that may be causing my seizures.  Of course, this means that I have more medical bills and more stress to deal with.

I’ve decided, finally, to ask for help. I don’t want to inconvenience anyone, but I just do not know what to do. I’m currently swamped in medical bills. It’s filled up my credit card. I just barely manage to make payments on it.  

I’m raffling off my vintage collection of Pokemon figures, as well as a collection of Eevee and eeveelutions plushies.  First place gets the figures, second place gets the plushes! 

My GoFundMe page is here.

Not interested in Pokemon? No problem!  Please reblog, share, or maybe check out my Etsy shop for some rad beadwork!

Thank you!

Good luck.

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.

It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats. 

Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.
