So, if you click the link above, you’ll be taken to my shiny new donations and commissions page.
I created the page, along with my Paypal, a few days ago, and put the link on my blog. I also talked about it- a little- but I wanted to wait to make the actual announcement. A few really great people, however, have already donated and commissioned some stuff and I’m honestly just completely blown away that you guys are so incredible.
Now, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know it’s been a rough time for me. I’ve been up and down a really bad spectrum with my bipolar disorder and a lot of outside factors are starting to weigh me down.
The biggest outside factor is where I’m living.
- A really old trailer that is NOT big enough for everyone (human and animal) living in it. Not to mention living with my mother-in-law, who is an alcoholic and makes the environment really toxic.
- A city where I have no friends or family, outside of my partner.
- An environment where I am highly allergic to a lot of things and end up being sick most of the year. (Seriously, I have lived all over and have never had allergies until moving to Alaska.)
- The same city as my brother-in-law, who some of you know threatened to kill me/Seath/my animals/himself. I live in a constant state of fear of running into him, or him showing up uninvited at my home.
We moved to Alaska a year ago, thinking that a- we would be able to afford our own place after a few months, b- several of our friends would be/also move here, and c- my brother-in-law would be living in another state. None of that actually happened, and with the way that things are now, it’s making my anxiety and depression take a turn for the worse. Which is why I know that I need to move out of state, somewhere better for my physical and emotional well being.
But that’s one thing to say and another thing to accomplish. Hotels/food/gas to drive from point A to point B could be around 2000 dollars. Putting a down payment on a car reliable enough to actually make that drive- which my current one is not- would probably be about another thousand. Putting a security deposit and first month’s rent down on a new place would be in the neighborhood of another thousand.
That’s four thousand dollars for just the bare minimum. And saving up four thousand dollars, with our current financial situation, could take years.
Which is why I’m turning to you guys. Donate if you really, REALLY want to, and you have the money in excess, but please consider a commission. I know I’m not the greatest writer in the fandom, but there’s very little that I won’t write for you if you give me the opportunity.
I know that coming up with four thousand dollars is going to take a lot of time, and I don’t expect you guys to give me even a quarter of that, but every single penny helps, and puts the biggest smile on my face.
If you don’t want to spend money or don’t have the money to spend, please consider reblogging this to get the word out. Anyone who gives even the smallest gesture of kindness to help me out here is going to have my eternal love and gratitude.
