Help a disabled trans man stay afloat
I hate to do this, but I need help. My name is Thresh, and I’m a 21 year old disabled trans teen. Recently my state has deemed me “No longer disabled” and is taking away my disability. I’ve been medically diagnosed with PTSD from my abusive family and past events, Manic depression, Panic disorder, Anxiety disorder, Borderline personality disorder, Bipolar, and schizophrenia. Coupled with a few learning disorders, These disabilitys make it impossible for me to function in society, and get a job. Making my Disability my only income. Currently I’ve hired a lawyer who, if we win, will only take $6000 or %25 of “past due benefits”. You heard that right. Until this is settled I’ll have No money coming in every month. None. That means I’ll be unable to pay my bills.
Thats where tumblr comes in. The bare minimum I need to survive every month is my rent and electric. I can visit food pantys and soup kitchens to eat. I can forgoe my phone and internet, if I have to. I just need to pay my rent, so I dont end up on the street, and my electric bill. My apartment covers water and trash. All I need are those two bills. Realistically, we’re talking $635 dollars PER MONTH. My rent, monthly, is $535 dollars. My electric averages $100. (lower, in the summer if i keep my AC off and my fans on) but please, tumblr. Please, I need help.
I am willing to give out personal information if it remains private. My paypal is Spadesandstabs@yahoo.com if you want to donate there. Please, please tumblr I’m begging you help me. This “appeal” for my benefits could go on for A WHOLE YEAR. I need help.
I’m re-posting this into the tag, because “raising trans awarness” should also mean “help trans people stay alive.” right?
