It's my man's 39th birthday at the end of May. He used to have his own little apartment, but it got too expensive to travel to and from me every week, something mother demanded. Life has brought us together, but has taken away a lot from him (not only his house, but all of his family as well). I already suggested breaking up would in the end make him happier, but he refuses to leave me. And I, too, think it's unfair if this would be the end for us because this society is ruining our lives.

Will you help us finally live together as our own little family for his birthday?

We're a 35+ year old couple.

We have been in isolation for almost two years now due to trauma, autism, mental health, my complex brain disorder, grieving, depression, PMS, anxiety and germaphobia. I've never not lived in my parental house, in a very busy city.

Our disorders and mental health prevent us from going outside the house during the day in a city and even inside mum's garden and house, there's stimulans all the time (sirenes, cigarette smoke, children playing, the HUGE apartment a few meters behind mum's garden where people come and go, detergent and perfumes, the THREE motorways surrounding the district/city with a constant wooosh noise and polluted air that makes us nasal spray addicted etc) . Our brains, especially mine, are very sensitive to smell, sound and light pollution and the latter is quite a thing (traffic lights, car headlights, flickering sirenes and lamp posts) whenever we walk our fur baby during the night to escape daytime city life.

We used to live in an old camper so that we could live just outside the city and still be close to my mentally unstable mother who got anxiety attacks whenever I told her I want to live on my own. The government, however, took it away from us because neighbors who admitted enjoying bullying us, pretended to be bothered by our camper (we always parked it where others' campers were parked as well).

We bought an old car, so that we were able to escape the city every day and go to a park or so to be away from all the simulants. The car hasn't been road legal for a long time now due to its missing MOT. So now we're almost literally stuck in my childhood bedroom and a tent in mum's small, paved garden, as we haven't left it at all for almost two years now.

A car is mandatory for us. But then, an old camper would be ideal - the housing market is BAD (17.5 years registration at this housing association still only results in apartments in a city) and we ourselves could never function in a house with neighbours.

We have a burning fire inside of us that wants to leave a footprint behind and make the world a tiny bit better as soon as we are given the opportunity in the future.

Could you all help us so that we, too, can live where we both can live a normal life and slowly get back into society? In my country, vehicles have become very expensive over the last few years, that's why I'm looking for financial support here, as we are unable to work now that we're in constant survival mode and live from our social income. We've looked at other options, but where other people can either sell stuff or ask friends and family, we don't have those possibilities.

Thanks a LOT!
