Please help me crowd fund my rent to stay housed/fed.
I’m in a major transitional period in my life. One of the things I’m phasing into is a new job (Yay! Super thankful). While I am already working, my new pay schedule is very different than what I’m used to; I won’t get paid until October 5th. I work a few side jobs in addition to my 9-5, and I’m running my body down trying to grind 7 days a week; it’s really difficult to manage non stop working, especially with fibromyalgia. It’s a condition I’ve been managing for years that causes lots of chronic widespread pain. My body is tired (some of you know I’m also in a constant battle with chronic depression; my mind and spirit are weary as well). Even with my hustle strong, I’m not quite making it this month. That’s a big stressor because I have living expenses that cannot wait.
I’ll never get on my feet or keep from sinking without some help, so at the encouragement of a loved one, I’m asking for any and all help you are moved to give. The following is a list of things I am raising funds for, in order of priority:
Rent due by 9/25- $600
Gas for my commute to/ from work - $100
Food for the next 3 weeks until payday, 10/05/14 - $150
Meds/ doctor’s visits: $125
It seems so daunting when I type it out, but I know that what’s more daunting is having nothing at all and trying to make money appear from thin air. Thank you for taking the time to read, reblog, and/ or share this post. It means a lot when people stand in the gap for me. My PayPal email is email@example.com. I’ll be posting with updates as I near October 1. Again, thank you so much.
FYI: The first two episodes of Ghost in the Shell: Arise are on Netflix
I saw my parents yesterday. The were in the mall getting my mom a new pair of glasses and wandered into my store. I happened to be heading to the office and saw them walk in the mall entrance. I hugged my mom and then I hugged my dad who said, “Hello son.” I said I had to go to the office and excused myself soon after. And then I spent the next hour or so fighting back tears. I almost asked my manager if I could go home early but I got shorted on hours this week so I couldn’t afford to short myself as well.
I love my parents but I can’t spend any time with them without one of them calling me son or he or boy. I don’t know how to talk to them about this. I can’t talk to them about this. I just freeze up when it happens.
I don’t know. I started writing this a few hours ago and sunk in a depressive funk. Going to get food and maybe feel a little better.
need couch urgent Seattle rape victim
Hey all, I’m Jackie a 33 yr old disabled trans woman in Seattle. I have a set income from disability, so its been difficult to rent in time.
I was raped by a guy I had been seeing two days ago and had been kicked out of my friend’s place. He can’t handle the emotional turmoil. I spent yesterday in the hospital and found a hostel for a few nights to find out that they’re unwilling to work with me because my driver’s license doesn’t match my gender. I stayed there last night and am desperately trying to find a place.
I do not want to go back to sex work, so this is really a last ditched effort. I’m quiet, clean, and normally become fast friends with roommates. I can pay a maximum of $550 monthly, but open minded to any arrangement that’s safe and fair.
Seriously, I have no expectations but I’d be extremely grateful. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Need Couch in Asheville, NC
Hello, I am a trans woman who has been living with a friend/lover for the past few months, and that has turned sour for me. I am looking for a place where I can stay for a few days/ weeks until I find a place of my own. I am willing to contribute some money for rent and/or clean, cook, watch pets, watch kids. I have a job at a local grocery store which starts tomorrow morning, and I am looking for a second job as I write this. I would prefer a place that is quiet and allows me to have plenty of personal space. If that’s not possible, just a few days away from my current situation would be very helpful. I am quiet, clean, and respectful of boundaries. Thank you so much. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook me, Matilda May.
