A motorbike broke my leg, it has complicated my Edinburgh Fringe plans - help me get there and support my new career in comedy and the arts!

by Amanda Jane Pritchard in London, England, United Kingdom

I am doggedly determined to fulfil my Edinburgh Fringe run this year despite a number of setbacks- and I need your help!

In mid May this year, I was hit by a motorcycle crossing the road in Glasgow sustaining a right tibial plateau fracture. The prognosis was six weeks on crutches and a brace. Then I slipped in the bathroom of my Airbnb because of a faulty radiator heater. Thankfully I don't need surgery but I do need a further six-eight weeks on the crutches (and I cannot be trusted not to break something else)... lol.

In July 2018 I packed up and sold most of my life away (for a song) to pursue a career in the performing arts/musical comedy and relocate to the UK. My money soon ran out but I have managed to make it work. There've been some amazing angels who have helped me out along the way - superb friends new and old.

The leg break means I cannot work which was my plan in the lead up to Edinburgh.

My budget before the break stretched to take me up to Edinburgh but now, for continuity of care I need to stay on in London. My expenses have increased and Edinburgh looks dicey!

Being off my feet for the most part is a major challenge as I have Bipolar. One of the crucial parts of managing that is exercise and being out in life - in the past I have hidden myself away and there have been times since the leg break those thoughts have re-entered my mind after a long time managing the Bipolar with good/great effect. I always have to be vigilant.

So, what am I asking? Check out the rewards, buy a teeshirt, come to my show, make a donation, share it with friends and family...
