My name is Brandy and I am 20 years old. I am currently in need of some money for basic stuff like food, bills, cat food/litter, personal care, etc. I am severely mentally ill and unable to work and provide for myself. I feel absolutely helpless because of this, and not being able to be independent is taking even more of a toll on my mental health.
I am autistic with other mental health issues/illnesses. I have severe depression and anxiety. These past few years have been extremely hard for me. My mental health has severely declined, and I am extremely miserable. I have also struggled with suicidal thoughts. I have never had a job because of my mental health. My living situation also has an affect on my mental health, and I am wanting desperately to move out.
My family and I are very poor. For several months now we have been without our food stamps. I literally survive mostly on snack foods these days, which is obviously not very healthy. Most days I only have one meal a day, or I would have little snacks throughout the day. I want to be able to have a nice home cooked meal, but there is literally nothing in our fridge. I just want to be able to easily get something to eat from the kitchen when I am hungry. I am so tired of not knowing where my next meal is coming from or if I am even going to be able to eat that day.
I have 3 cats and 2 dogs, but I mostly care for 2 of the cats; one of them is my own cat who I am solely responsible for. She has specific needs. She has a sensitive stomach and is allergic to flea bites. I have been needing to take her to the vet for months now, but I have absolutely no money for vet fees/medicine. Recently I noticed she seems to be feeling sick, and I believe she might have worms. So now I absolutely have to take her to the vet and get her some medicine. I feel absolutely horrible because I love my cat so much, and I want her to be happy and healthy.
I am trying my best everyday, but recently I have been feeling awful about my situation. I just feel worthless. I would greatly appreciate if anyone could donate to me. Literally anything helps and is appreciated. Thanks a lot guys. :)
