Local Disabled Gay Begs For Money
I’d appreciate a signal boost on this if you can, because anything helps.
I am a professional author. I don’t make very much money. Authors generally don’t. I am also legally disabled. I have severe BPD II, ADD, and assorted anxiety disorders which makes holding down a 9 to 5 job impossible, which means I receive a very small check from the government. My total annual income is less than 15k.
After ten years of very little change in my life, I am starting to make a good existence for myself. I bought a car and learned to drive. I am making my way as an author and slowly expanding my catalogue of books. I am traveling more often. I recently married the love of my life and am knee deep in the very, very expensive and stressful task of immigration so that I can be with her.
Unfortunately, all of this costs more money than cowering in a basement. Oh, and did I mention that the second I move across the border, I lose that disability stipend?
I’m bad at this. I just wrote a whole paragraph about the bad month I had financially and then deleted it. I catch myself thinking things like “well you just bought some new clothes on clearance the other day, that means you’re fine.” But I just went to go get groceries and realized I didn’t have any money. And was, in fact, 50 dollars over my credit limit.
So I’m standing here, hat in hands. I’m a good fandom queer lady who could really use whatever you can give me to get over this hump. Even now I want to just delete this entire message, but then I think that damn, if even one person funnels two dollars my way, that would be… really, really, really nice.
If you want to be that angel with the two dollars, please feel free to paypal it to me at rosaaquafire[at]gmail[dot]com.
I’ll be eternally grateful for the little boost.
