Hi! Since it's disability pride month i thought I could try and ask for help.
I'm a visually impaired poc, I also have ADHD.
I already asked for donations last year and everyone was very generous, my parents and I used most of the donations to get me new glasses (I have the receipts if anyone wants to see it, I also have the receipts of the appointment with the doctor).
The thing is, my new glasses are not right, the doctor wrote the wrong numbers and the optician copied them wrong too, the measures were too high and on top of that the frame was too big, It was so bad I technically fainted the first day I tried them, we had an argument with the optician and he changed his mistake, but the doctor had also written the wrong numbers and the optician refused to change them because that wasn't his mistake, he also refused to correct the frames, they're too big for me so they're constantly moving around my face, this has caused me to have a headache 24/7 and also to feel nauseous and dizzy often, they even fell once while I was crossing the street.
At this point our only choice is to make the glasses all over again and we're already struggling financially because my dad wasn't able to work for a whole year due to covid (him and everyone in my home rn are high risk, he has asthma and diabetes, and my mom is immunosuppressed)
I know these are hard times for everyone but if you are able to please donate, I'm also taking art comissions.
Reblogs help a lot too! So please reblog if you can!
Thank you so so much!
