so this is me, Phoenix, and my partner, Alastair. I’m a poly agender lesbian, and he’s my gender-questioning steady.
I’ve had to ask for a lot of help recently. up until a few months ago, I managed to squeeze thru on my own (below the poverty line my whole life, but I’ve been working 50+ hours a week since I was 15 on top of school) and then some really awful shit happened. I was raped twice less than a month after my best friend and lover was murdered, all while homeless.
since I was very young, I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia. with the recent shite of late, all of my mental illnesses have essentially hit a point where I am no longer able to work for the time being.
to sum up quickly, I’ve been accepted to university in Denton. I am staying at a place over an hour and a half away from the uni and need to get an apartment closer to school. my financial aid will pay for the tiny apartment I’m gonna get once I get my student loans, but before then, I need money to put down on our apartment. what money I did have have is almost gone and the person we are staying with needs more money to afford us staying here, which isn’t really an option anymore anyways. we won’t need too terribly much, but I do need it within the next 2-3 weeks. if you can donate, the button is on my blog in the description. if you can’t, signal boosting will help us too. thank you all for helping me during this shit. <3
