I’ve had a rough life. Yeah, yeah you’ve heard it all before. I’m a 24 year old transman with crippling depression who has been in and out of the hospital for the last 6 years due to multiple suicide attempts, doctor visits, therapist sessions and so on. One year ago, I got kicked out of my fathers house because he didn’t like how I was transgender, I then had to move into the basement my sister rented just to have a place to sleep. Long story shorter, my sisters attitude about my situation and her tolerance of my illnesses caused her to quit all contact for me and I became worse and worse living in a room for 6 month, all the while I was on sick leave from work because the suicide attempt in December last year completely shattered my self confidence.
Having enough, I guess, my sister kicked me out of her house and I had less than two weeks to find a place to live. Under those conditions I found a place to rent that was 695$ CAD a month. It’s a pretty garbage place, but it was all I could do on such short notice. The same day I was accepted into this lease, I was also accepted into University!
Since September, I’ve been living on student loans and part time work back at my job I’ve held for the last 5 years. It was meager but it was working. Then, in November, my wisdom teeth were hurting so much I was unable to eat or chew, and talking and breathing was becoming impossible. I had to get two of the four impacted wisdom teeth removed. On top of that, I had my car break down and I had to rush to get a new car, setting me back another 360$CAD on top of all that. I also take care of my younger sister and her bills as she left my fathers house the same time I did, for similar reasons, so that and travelling to pick her up every weekend, costs a lot.
This month I didn’t make rent. I currently received a generous donation from a lovely follower on Tumblr for 200 dollars but that just covers the late fee. I’m attempting to sell items on another social media site to no avail, and as you can see in the image, I’ve been given a notice to terminate, with the date set to December 26, 2018. I’m devastated. This year has been horrible and downhill with a little glimmer of hope there in the middle. I’m scared I’ve never been in a situation like this before and I don’t know where else to turn. Even if you could help me with a dollar, I would be more than pleased. The amount I need remaining is 437$CAD after my paycheck this Friday.
My PayPal is paypal.me/jm2077 if you’re able to help.
