Dear Friends and Followers,
I am begging you for help. For the past three months since I came out as an asexual trans male, my family and home life has become a too much for me to live with. My family is not accepting of my gender identity, and are adamant that my asexuality is just me being “immature”. Adding to this, I have severe anxiety and depression that I’ve had to be treated for for several years. It is a constant struggle to even leave my room when I know they are waiting outside of my door. I’ve been forced into “family therapy” in which a therapist wastes my time and money by invalidating my gender identity and trying to convince me that my asexuality is a result of me being, again, “immature” or “maybe you’re doing it wrong” or “maybe you just haven’t met the right person”. There are many instances that I’ve discussed with personal confidants that have occurred between my mother and I, and many have agreed that what she has been doing has been abusive. To add to the frustration, my significant other is struggling with some complications he’s having at his job and having trouble finding housing. And, I’m trying to go to college!
I SERIOUSLY WILL NOT SURVIVE WITHOUT HELP. Currently I am unemployed, and though I’ve been hunting for a job all summer, I’ve had no luck. I am still going to continue to look for a job, but if my home situation worsens, I may have to have an escape route before I can even get a job. I need a home for my significant other and I, and I need assistance paying for my education.
Honestly, I’m a very proud person, and having to ask for donations really hurts my heart. I hate feeling like I’m just taking money from people. But I seriously can’t do this without you guys. If nothing else, please reblog this link to my YouCaring if you can’t donate. Every penny helps!
Also, again, as I stated, I hate feeling like I’m just taking money from people, so if you’d like, I’d love to do something for you in return if you ask it of me. I’m not an artist, I can’t draw or paint for you like a commission, but if you would like, I would love to do any of the following in return for your donation:
1. Write you a poem. You can give me a topic, or a word, or a theme, and I’ll write you a poem based of that topic/word/theme.
2. Send you a hand-written letter in the mail with positive messages and thank-you’s. Thought this would be a cute idea because hand-written things, in my opinion, mean a lot more than stuff typed on the computer.
3. Follow your tumblr blog
4. Make you a hand-made bookmark. I used to be really good at making bookmarks out of index cards. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s a little something I can put my thanks and love into.
5. Take a picture of something that you really like (i.e, a pretty sunset, a rainstorm, a spooky abandoned building,a dog, a cat, etc.) and dedicate it to you on my photography blog nonsensicalimagery
Please signal boost this even if you can’t donate! I love you all and hope you have a splendid day!
