Dee's Seizure Recovery - GoFundMe -
So, I just got my GoFundMe page up. Lots more to do, but I will continue to be working on it for a bit. Hopefully soon Cami and I can make up a video, and I intend to have rewards set up once I’m on my feet a bit more and have the cash flow to mail things. I would normally have everything set up first, but bills will be coming in soon and there’s only so much I can do right now. Oh geeze, this is kinda scary. Be kind to me, Tumblr.
For anyone seeing this long-ass post show up in their tracked tags, a background (my followers can just skip this bit with no guilt):
I am a white, queer, poly, non-binary trans student in the southeast US. I’m engaged to a fantastic transgender woman. We both just lost jobs (her because she was in the hospital with me, me because my doctor said I can’t continue where I was) and have been underemployed for a year and a half.
I have just had a resurgence of a neurological condition I was told I should not have problems with years ago. I had two ER visits in one week, was admitted to a hospital, and now have to travel to see a specialist at least every two months if things are going well for me. Both of our families are trying to help how they can but it’s not an easy task.
Since I’m still in school and this happened during the semester, I’m trying very hard to finish my classes and not have to take a medical withdrawal (where my classes just disappear and I’ll be behind by a year). Dealing with all of this at once has been very taxing on myself and my fiancee.
My fiancee and I are broke. We just paid this month’s rent late with a credit card and my sweetie’s Christmas present. We are selling what we can, trying to find a roommate or two, and generally just keeping each other going right now cause things aren’t super fun. I’ve lost weight (14 lbs) in the past month from not having enough food. Our money problems and the stress from them (along with the other effects like bad nutrition, having to work as many hours as allowed) are the probable cause of why I’m having seizures again.
I’m trying to raise $6,000 right now.
This won’t pay off my medical bills, this won’t pay for rent for the next semester. This could really just rationally get us started for next semester, feed us, and maybe we could take out loans to defer the bills for now, I dunno. But I feel at this point it’s overly optimistic for me to think that I can raise as much as I’m requesting with my current audience base.
If I can reach this, then Cami and I can work on getting to a place where we will be stable and able to sustain ourselves. If you can help us, you’ll be supporting two low-income trans* folk living in the rural South.
Going a bit off-topic to signal boost a friend of mine who needs help. Even if you can’t help financially, signal boosting helps a lot.
I forgot I did this.
