My real name is Reece, but friends call me Batman.
I'm 22yrs young, and have Cystic Fibrosis. I've spent a majority of my life in hospital and this means I missed out a lot of school. Because I have no qualifications or anything, I can't work in an office. Also with my health, I can't be in an outside job that's physical. Maybe as a teenager, my health as progressed.
As you can imagine, suriving week to week on minimum income on the Invalids benefit can be pretty tough. So tough in fact, my bills have gotten on top of me. My power bill is over $1,000 and I've had my internet disconnected. I have been using a "dongle" for mobile internet on my laptop which I'm borrowing from my sister as my computer blew up.
The internet is my only contact with the outside world, so without it, it's been pretty quiet. I can't get any help from the government with it either. So my only option is to try pay it off. But with such little income left after other bills and medication, I have little to put on th internet bill which ticks up as time goes by.
This is my last resort to try raise enough money to finally pay it off.
