I googled to see if there might be a place in New York for patients getting medical treatment who need housing. Here's what I came up with, hope it helps you, I have no personal knowledge of this place.
It does say it has housed people from many other countries, and it serves people with life-threatening illnesses...sounds like you may qualify! Best wishes.
Miracle House provides temporary housing, meals, and advocacy to caregivers and patients coming to New York City for critical medical treatment.
WHO WE ARE
We operate five three-bedroom apartments located in midtown Manhattan serving over 1,000 caregivers and patients each year.
We are the only hospitality home that allows caregivers to stay while their loved one is hospitalized.
Miracle House was founded in 1990 in response to the AIDS crisis. Over the last 20 years, Miracle House has evolved to serve caregivers and their patients receiving treatment for cancer or any other life threatening illness.
Our Meals Program combined with the support of both volunteers and other patients provide something which conventional therapy cannot; companionship, friendship and the hope built from relating to others.
We have welcomed families from all 50 states and over 25 countries.
If you are traveling to New York for medical treatment and need a place to stay please click on "Stay With Us" for detailed information.
Sorry that you are going through such a difficult time without the support you need, both financially and emotionally.
Is there a Lyme support group in your area, or even in your country? Can you connect with them, either by phone or online? I'm pretty sure there are some Lyme support groups in Europe, try to connect with one of them.
What about other support groups for people with disabling conditions...fibromyalgia, chronic pain, etc. Perhaps through a hospital in your area. It's so important to have other people to talk to. Please consider giving it a try.
There are also various religious groups that often have folks who would love to help you out with daily tasks, like getting groceries, bringing meals, or just visiting to offer you support and hope, and to know that you are not alone.
Likewise, there could be social agencies that perfom these tasks.
Finding people to connect with in the area where you live could really help. It might not be easy to reach out at first, but try to take a baby step, then another.
Wishing you the best.
