My name is naoyuki kitajima

I am in desperate need for help. Please help me if you can, anything will be a life saver.

I have been looking after my brother with clinical depression for over 8 years. I flew him here in Australia after I heard that he attempted suicide after losing his wife and newborn in Japan. I wasn't in the best financial position to do so but I couldn't let him die just like that. The first few years was really a financial and emotional struggle, but I managed but cutting all my social ties so that I don't spend extra money out, as well as all alcohol and changed eating habits opting for very low cost foods. His mental states got better after a while.

But for the last few years of so, things got really tough. My rent all utilities went up . Cost of food is ridiculous. I took some high interest loans along the way just to get by thinking that thing will get better, but it didn't, it just got worse.

I tried asking my friends, that I have few now, but nobody could help.

I'm in huge financial stress now, works barely cover for my food. I'ma more than one months late on my rent, electricity might get cut off. I don't know what else to do. I just want to be able to look after my brother and put dinner on our plate. I don't want my brother's depression to go back to the state it was, he is finally properly talking to me without rocking back and for and screaming.


Please help me if you can, anything will

help.
