Hello I just posted another one of these but I forgot to put my PayPal link so I’m redoing it, so if you see the other one it’s me again hello!
hi, so here’s what’s going on. My van is also my home. It’s a 95 GMC and I cannot stand up in my house due to its height and I cannot do my work due to the size as I am a reseller on Poshmark and I have no room for inventory. I live in a van because it’s the only way I will have a guaranteed roof over my head. Keeping a place to live it’s always been a struggle for me as I have ADHD anxiety depression possibly ASD possibly bipolar I saw on my medical records once but they never mentioned it to me I have heat exhaustion and I’m a cancer survivor, I also have PTSD from my childhood which is where all of my struggles started and I somehow have not been able to pull myself out of it, maybe because I’ve been my own therapist. heat exhaustion is tough because I live in Texas currently so I am here because I’m trying to get north to a state with cooler temps that offers Medicaid for a single person like myself with no kids other than my fur kid Buckley. As soon as I get somewhere up north that has Medicaid I will get a therapist and start seeing a doctor regularly to make sure the cancer has not come back and try and figure out what this sudden onset of joint pain is.
I am 52 years old living in a van that on days of inclement weather l, I’m stuck in I cannot even stand up in my house and I am stuck in all day so it’s backbreaking. I also have some new thing that started during Covid where all of my joints start hurting really bad simultaneously sometimes for days at a time so I need a doctor for that as well. I’m hoping to get to Washington or even Oregon where the temps are cooler I can get on Medicaid get into an RV park which is another reason I’m asking for this much money so I can pay rent at RV parks and gas money to get there and the cost of a newer van that I don’t have to worry about breaking down as often as this old 95 . I built my van out myself and I love her, her name is blue sky by the way, but she’s just too small for full-time living.
currently van prices are not going by the Kelley Blue Book value as all used car prices have gone up due to something about chips they can’t get for cars? I don’t know, but vans especially and especially if they’re already built out which would be better for me right now because then I can just move right on in and if I’m lucky I’ll find one that already has a shower and solar I definitely need solar, a shower I can find elsewhere like the RV park I move to. Just need a safe place for my dog and I to call our forever home, one that I can stand up in that has room for us and my inventory so I can continue to bring in money it’s hard for me to work a regular job with a dog when your home is also your vehicle I won’t leave him alone in the van he is my best friend and he has saved my life more than once due to my depression, it is my job to take care of him and that is what is kept me here. Anyone that knows the love of a dog understands why I chose to stick around and take care of him. I try really hard,I really do and I’m very creative I can sew I make cute handbags doggy bowties and doggy bandannas for extra money as well as the reselling although I haven’t sewn in a while I haven’t had any creativity I’m hoping once I get up north with the cooler temps in the more beautiful climate will help spark something inside of me to help me start creating again it’s hard for me to work regular jobs even if I didn’t have a dog because of all of my mental stuff people just don’t get me I’m different I’ve always been different but as I’m getting older I’m getting weirder guess it’s OK if you already know me but if you don’t you just think I might be crazy but I’m not I’m just unique.
I’m currently at my friend’s house for a couple more months but after that it’s back in the van full time and it’ll still be hot here in Texas I really don’t want to break down trying to get up north and that’s all the van because if I break down in the heat I’m in trouble I can be done in 15 minutes because of how bad my heat intolerance is and then who’s gonna take care of my dog?
look, I know 75,000 sounds like a lot but a newer van is expensive it doesn’t have to be brand new but I can get a newer van it’s tall it’s built out into a camper van already with full solar it will make it up north where I need to go and last me for quite some time once I’m settled and can start affording to save money in case I need repairs. But think of it this way you’re helping someone get a whole house for $75,000 something for them and their dog to be safe and comfortable because I feel safety and comfort or human necessities and we should automatically have safety and comfort as humans. Once I make my goal and get into my new van I will donate the current van I have now to an elder person in need as many elderly live in vans as a necessity but some can’t even afford to get the van and face homelessness.
Bob Wells from cheap RV living if you Google that has a nonprofit that helps to give vans to people in need and I will give my van to him to give to someone in need once I have a newer bigger van. what comes around goes around right?
Help me please and thank you! All I’m asking for is a home and healthcare and temperatures that won’t kill me. Thank you for reading my ADHD riddled post LOL I’m sure it wasn’t the easiest read as my brain does not work the way most peoples. I hope all of this made sense. You are a wonderful human! And you’re beautiful! Thank you so much for your consideration.
humbly yours, Caprice
