Some of you may know my housing situation, and that I was considering making a GoFundMe for help. Well, here we are.
For those that don’t know, (and those who don’t know the whole story) let me explain.
I am currently in supported shared housing for vulnerable adults (all men, may I add, despite telling my housing association many times that I’m a sexual abuse survivor), and I have been for almost two years. It’s hell, frankly, because of my many, pretty awful mental health problems. I can’t leave my room without panicking and running back in and locking myself in. That means that I can’t go to the bathroom (Mm. Think buckets and sinks.), I can’t use the shower, I can’t even use the damn kitchen because I’m too terrified of running into the people in my house. It’s no way to live and it’s horrible. If my mental health was screwed up before this, boyyyyy, I don’t even know what to call it now.
I’m being evicted soon though, because my time is almost up. It’s only a two year stay and then you have to move on. Now, this solves all your problems, I hear you exclaim! Nah. Because I’m 22 years old, I’ll be put into another shared house, and the process will start all over again. Now, I’m getting a letter from my mental health team and signed by the head psychiatrist about my problems that explains why I should be put into my own accommodation, with two bedrooms preferable so I can have a carer stay for a few nights a week. So that should help.
However, I still need financial help. I’m currently on benefits because I can’t work (thanks, mental illnesses) and I’m barely surviving of what I have as it is. To get accommodation, no matter how small, I need a deposit to put down on it, and buy essential things like a bed, a cooker, etc. That’s why I am asking for your help.
I am scared, and I am desperate. And both of those words are dramatic understatements.
Please help me. By donating, or reblogging, or sharing. I will be eternally grateful. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Thank you in advance.
