First of all thank you for taking the time and reading this. On March the 13th, 2013 I met Abby. On our first date i knew that she was special. The first time our hands touched i felt a connection like never before with anyone. After a few weeks of dating her, I found out she was hearing voices, seeing things and was self-destructive. I stood beside her, even fought invisible creatures that hounted her with a flashlight. Our fears came true when she was diagnosed with schizophrenia and depression, the same mental disorder i watched my father fight all my life. To some people it would all seem like a coincidence but to me it was a sign. I couldn't help my father and at the end he died from pancriatic cancer. I was not going to give up this time. We helped eachother through so much painful moments, I can honestly say that i can not imagine my life without her. We want to get married, move in together and start a family but there is just so many obstacles in our way. Abby is a student but it's hard to study with her condition, she takes prescribed medication but the only thing that ever made difference was therapy sessions that we can't afford. I'm an industrial designer, i mostly take jobs as a contractor but in the winter there is almost no work and when i do get something the money just vaporizes into bills that are past due. This year one of the first bills that came was from the gas company for the last year and a half for 3500€ (USD$4000). I can't afford to pay it and i'm afraid they'll shut the gas off in the middle of winter. I'm turning to online funding as a last resort to try and get our life back on tracks. Me and the Abby try hard to be exemplary members of society and if our luck changes with your help, we will be forever grateful. We will carve the names of all the donators on a plaque and hang it on a living room wall in hopes we can some day show it to our children as a sign that there are still good people out there and it will certainly not stop with us, because we believe that good deeds have to keep going.
