I am attempting to raise money for my family to help us get back on our feet after troubles due to my mental health. A year ago I had to resign from my job due to mental health issues that landed me in extensive inpatient treatment. (Borderline Personality Disorder and Generalised Anxiety Disorder.) After talking to several people, including my doctors, we decided that I should file for disability since I meet all of the requirements and it is obvious that I cannot handle working. Money became so tight for us that we wound up losing everything. We had no home, no car, not even a dining room table. We wound up having to move in with a friend just to get by. As of yesterday, we learned that our roommate will be moving out *much* sooner than we expected and this puts us in a really bad position. Bad as in we might once again lose our home. We’ve known this was coming—though we had previously agreed to give one another far more notice—and had been attempting to save up money, but it all wound up going to bills and to the treatment of my spouse’s cat, Cecil. (He later died despite our best efforts.) My wife is breaking herself trying to do what she can to bring in money. She works in a salon as a nail technician, she designs covers and writes books. Her work days are generally 12-14 an hour and for the past six months she has been trying to find yet another job to add to her list to hopefully get us situated. Unfortunately, we don’t have the time for her to find a new job. We have bills due now, bills that we due two weeks ago, a month ago. School is starting up soon for my daughter and there are a lot of costs involved in that because she has to attend a special school that can handle her autism. We really, really need to get caught up if we even stand a chance of getting past the next few months. That’s why I’m here asking for help. I’m sorry to whine and be obnoxious, but if you could help out in any way at all, it would mean everything to me. Even if you could just help spread the word. Thank you so much.
a friend suggested this to me. i’m whiny & tacky & whatever, i know, but this is my family and i will do what i have to. if you could please help out or reblog this, i would be eternally grateful. (also please don’t forget that i have a store where i’m trying to sell off my jewelry.)
This family does not deserve what they’re going through. Everyone needs a leg up once in a while. If you can’t donate PLEASE reblog so we can get them the help they need.
