Hello! Thank you very much for taking the time to read my post.
After a difficult few years, I am looking forward to starting university later this year and hopefully turning my life around with a brand new start.
For the past couple of years I have struggled with severe anxiety and depression. This first began when I witnessed an accident in which a close family member died, followed by the breakdown of a long term relationship, and then my parents separation, which resulted in one of my parents becoming very unwell and suicidal.
Many people experience life events like these, and many people experience much, much worse. However, for me, this really took a huge toll on my mental health and for a long time I have found it difficult to hold down a job. I try my very best to work as much as I can, but often have to take time off or leave jobs when I start finding it difficult to cope and having panic attacks at work. I am currently in therapy which I hope will help me to overcome my difficulties once and for all. I’ve already made progress but I’ve still got a long way to go, and so for a little while longer I will be struggling financially.
It is for this reason that I am hoping to raise some money towards my tuition fees and living costs at university. I am excited that I’ve gotten a place on my chosen course and really see this as a way out for me right now. I have done a lot of work on myself and have really pushed myself to get to the point where I feel well enough to start studying. I am ready to start something new and get my life back on track. However, I am afraid that I will struggle to work as much as I need to while I’m away in order to make my rent or afford the things that I need, such as a laptop. It would be really great if I had some money saved towards the first couple months rent, so that I have some time to sort myself out and settle in once I get there.
I really appreciate any help, however small, although it is of course not expected.
