SB 4 HELP - keep a disabled queer couple out of court
HI Y’all, i’m not sure how to write up one of these posts but
in case you don’t know me, my name is ames and i am a disabled 23-y/o genderqueer bro living in colorado with my girlfriend - i have fibromyalgia (a chronic pain and fatigue illness) as well as major depressive disorder and anxiety that sometimes worsens into periods of agoraphobia where i am unable to leave the house. my girlfriend also suffers from PTSD and a near debilitating schizo-affective bipolar disorder.
both of us have recently lost our jobs - due to workplace discrimination and harassment - and are now in danger of being evicted from our apartment
we have moved into my parents’ basement to keep us safe for now, but in order to complete a legal term of our apartment lease we need to come up with $850 by Oct. 2nd to avoid being evicted. if we cannot pay our last month of rent, our apartment will be repossessed and we will be faced with almost $500 in additional “court cost” fees from the leasing office
i have set up a donate button on the sidebar of this blog in the hopes that we will be able to raise whatever little funds we can to help us - in addition to rent, i also take several medications for pain management and mental illness that can total up to $80 for refills, and i have no spare cash to afford the insurance co-pay to see a doctor until we find a better financial situation
if you can’t donate directly, consider:
-purchasing something from my girlfriend’s etsy shop!
-commissioning me @ jpeghell on tumblr!
-reblog this post to get the word out!
i know i am asking a lot, and i am not expecting much back in return, but ANYTHING HELPS and both of us appreciate all the people who read this
peace friends ☮
