STILL Flaring at 40 Plus Months In
I am VERY angry today. I thought for sure this mess would be over by now. I know I haven’t updated this blog in many months BUT I am going through a rough patch in my life right now. Being out of work again, marriage on the rocks and suffering from depression is NOT fun. I had a break for a little while although I flaked and shed throughout, I felt more normal once again BUT over the past few months starting up again in August, I have been flaring up more often…..again (every 2 weeks for several days each time) and it’s maddening. I am at my wits end with this! I read about other sufferers and what they are trying to do to heal quicker and I don’t blame them for wanting to be well like YESTERDAY! I refuse to let any doctor prescribe MORE steroid medication though because that is what got me where I am in the first place. I refuse to try any synthetic medications pharmaceutical companies make so I have chosen to see a Naturopathic Doctor. Yes, that’s going to take money.
Money and Depression Are a Problem
Because I am collecting unemployment right now ($145 a week which is nothing) and looking for work (yes I feel like I can work at this point again) it will be difficult to see a new doctor right away. Due to “ObamaDontCare” I am on an HSA plan so I have to pay a portion upfront larger than a co-pay. Because of my marital difficulties, I am pretty much on my own money-wise so I will be asking my Brothers, Sisters and Neices and Nephews for some help. I was able to set up a GoFund me account which brought some money in, but that was for my medical bills and supplements. I’ma have to keep sharing the link so more people can see it. http://www.gofundme.com/tfussell
I am not giving up though and will be doing as much as I can. In fact, I have been doing as much as I can to help myself when I feel well enough to do so. I have been on some interviews also, since the last joke of a job I had but nothing has come to fruition yet. Fighting depression is NOT easy. It’s not just about feeling sad a lot, trust. It goes much deeper than that and I even thought about ending it all. I’ve fought it and won before so I will be okay. I just wish I had more support at this time.
On top of everything else, the car I barely drive now is breaking down. The right headlight is out and per the auto mechanic, it’s going to take more than just a light bulb replacement to fix it. He tried that and it still didn’t work. They wanted to charge me for some kind od diagnostic test so I just brought it back home. I also need new brakes and one of my tires went completely flat over night. I had AAA come out and put a spare tire on it. It’s just sitting there in front of my house looking pitiful. I have to laugh though because >sigh< at this point it’s to be expected. With all I am going through right now, nothing else will even surprise me. I’m just tired of it all.
I don’t tell my family much of what I am going through so they don’t really know anything other than I am still going through this hardship. I get calls from them from time to time and they try to cheer me up which is good, but now I am going to be calling them for financial assistance. Let me tell you the main reason why…..

Starting a New Supplemental Program with Pristine Nutraceuticals
One of my friends told me about a company that has been around for some time now and they have a natural supplement that is an Immune Modulator, something I do actually need. It’s called Digestaqure and at this point it is something I want to use. I investigated and did some research and a lot of people have been helped with their medical conditions with this product. It has also helped people with different skin conditions. I am grateful that I already take supplements that have helped ease some of my suffering but honey, I need to HEAL as SOON AS POSSIBLE. I am no longer a fan of having my body heal itself at this point. It’s taking too long. It’s going on 4 years now and I WANT MY LIFE BACK NOW.
What I like is the fact that you just don’t order the product and boom, you take it. They actually work with you via phone and e-mail while you are on it to keep track of your progress. They are professionals in the Naturopathic Medicine field.
The product is not cheap at all but my health is worth the cost. I’d end up paying a whole lot more had I kept going to my Dermatologist just for him to tell me he wants to prescribe more steroids, recommend lotions, send me to Yale University to try some medication that might cause more damage or try to put me on something to reverse the damage, which may or may not work and cause more damage to my body. I am NOT trying to be a guinea pig! I will ONLY deal with natural products and nutraceuticals now. I will go to my Dermatologist for follow up visits on my progress, that’s it.
Here is the company website: https://digestaqure.com/about-us.html
Starting today I will be asking my family members and friends to help me get the $427 package. I know I will need to be on it for 3 months or more. With my mom, dad, older brother, older sisters, nephews, neices and I am sure some friends helping me out, I can get that money and get it. If you are reading this and would like to help me also. Go right on to my GoFundMe page http://www.gofundme.com/tfussell. I’d appreciate the help. The sooner I get it, the better.
The money already collected there, $520 (as of this writing) has already been used. I am in need of more to get this product and I haven’t even reached my goal yet so I can pay the rest of my medical bills.
I AM Going To WIN This Fight
Flare No More will be the name on the bedazzled tee shirt I am going to be wearing when I am done with this mess and I just might sell them too. They will be black with silver lettering. I am also going to have a party. A BIG party once this is done because goodness knows, I NEED one.
