Hello to anyone reading this – thank you for clicking on the link!
I am a young woman in the UK and I am really struggling to stay afloat. Having had quite bad health for the last several years, my employment has been very stop/start and I have relied on credit cards to sustain my life and pay bills up to this point.
Now, I am at an all time low and can’t afford to keep going. Being fortunate to live in the UK, I am given free access to a GP but all other support is at a cost – therapist, counselling etc all costs and whilst I am too unwell to work, this isn’t something I can do.
I’ve recently been put on an additional kind of medication which is a sedative and the dosage is 4x per day, so most of the day I am either asleep or fighting hard to stay awake. This makes it impossible to find a job, even if I was mentally ready to do so. I am just such a burden on my family and friends and I can’t see how I can unburden them and contribute positively to their lives if I carry on like this.
My partner and I suffered two miscarriages in 2018 and I was then found to have pre-cancerous cervical cells. This has been hopefully sorted, but the miscarriages have taken a huge toll and I am lost.
Mental health is a a serious issue that affects a lot of people and I know that I am not alone in this situation, and I do not expect special treatment. If a little bit of financial help could be provided – if you are in a position to be able to help – it would quite literally save my life and give me the opportunity to get better and ultimately get back to work and pay it forward.
If you do feel that you would like to donate to me, for rent, food, prescriptions, therapy sessions etc. I would be forever eternally grateful.
