carters living

I’m starting this fundraiser to raise money for my living costs! I’m mentally ill and not able to work, ive been let go from two jobs over the last five months due to my health issues. I have applied for SSI but that is a process that can take 6-8 months and because I’m so young (20) and have sporadic work history due to my mental health episodes I’m not super hopeful I’ll get approved the first time.  I’ve had four different jobs over the last year and a half and only one of them was understanding but unfortunately it was too taxing on my body (standing as a barista all day, 40 hours a week) as I am also having possible heart problems but I’ve had to stop trying to figure out what that is because around the period of me losing my jobs my insurance also got cut off (yay me lol) I am also in the process of moving away from an abusive living situation that stunted my growth for awhile. I have been recently diagnosed with 6 mental illnesses which I feel is kind of explanatory for why it’s hard for me to daily tasks. Also at the time of me losing my insurance my medication also stopped and I couldn’t afford it out of pocket which has made it/made it a lot harder during this process. I am back on medication and insured again but it’s going to be a slow process of me becoming stable enough where I can consider working again. I’m asking for 500 bc that could cover my rent and bills for like two and a half months (I’m moving in with four other people) and also because I’m not exactly certain of when I’ll be better or when I’ll hear from SSI. Thank you for reading/donating if you do!
