Hello and welcome,
My name is Kate Holmes(Not the actress, I wish though). I have PTSD, Autism, and ADHD.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story...
TLDR; (Too long, Didn't Read): Fired due to quality slip from an undiagnosed PTSD condition (Not like I yelled, I just had too many panic attacks off the phones). Raising the necessary funds to make rent at LEAST. Any extra goes towards medical; my patient and angel on earth fiancée has a job for herself working to cover our food / electric and some of my medical ect.
TLDR over! Skip to the very bottom for my message of thank you that's a little better than just "thanks".
I was fired over new years due to an undiagnosed PTSD condition that has recently been diagnosed. Fell behind on bills keeping insurance up through Cobra for February to tackle what the heck is going on with the undiagnosed Chronic Pain that my pediatrician called "abnormal" growing pains- though it has never abated.
Need the assistance to make rent + any extra will fill in things like medicine during job hunting. Your donations are godsends; I have been denied loans due to not having an income or a job yet. Admittedly, it would be nice to afford medicine...
Unfortunately, I'm relatively young and beginning my career so I was unable to coast on my savings accounts since that all went towards medical bills.
If you can help, wonderful! I really appreciate you helping fund me so I avoid having to go on disability. I know there is a job that can meet my needs; however, statistics prove individuals with autism tend to have a rougher go of it. Now that I seek a job to meet my needs, that has narrowed my prospective choices.
(I have an undiagnosed condition of Chronic Pain that I am currently working with doctors to figure out as well. I know physical labor can be great for individuals with autism, but unfortunately the noise and laborious hours last made me collapse from exacerbated pain at a plastics/manufacturing factory.)
This is both the breaking point, but also the living point; I am about to get all my conditions in a row - and then thrive with them in a satisfying career. I am darned determined to live that American Dream!
If you got through all of that text so far,
THANK you. If you are the kind to accept prayers... I hope great fortunes fall on all of you- sparing you any situation similar or that you have kind people to assist you in your dark times either emotionally or physically. If you don't like prayers, then that's cool too. Thanks, dude/dudette/Duderino/Dude???
