I'm a 39-year-old female, Brazilian and single mother.
My son's father decided that because he lives in another country, he doesn't need to help with the expenses of his son who is now five years old. I have ADHD and bipolar disorder, my son who was born with food allergies and did exclusion diet until 4 year old, now cured, was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD, attends inclusive public school for children with disabilities. I am unable to have regular jobs and finish college due to the schedules I have to fulfill related to my son's treatments that include cognitive behavioral therapy, speech therapist, Bach flower treatment and medicine for control of humor. Since my son's birth, I have received help from my mother for payment of food, transportation, medical insurance, and any other expenses. I am not able to drive a car and my mother is retired. My ADHD has a lot of impact on my day to day. I have dyscalculia and can do jobs only that depend on creativity and work with hands.Everything that requires a lot of attention, mathematics, executive organization doesn't work. I want to do a professional artist makeup course, but I don't have the amount necessary for the payment of the course that is R$2.050 reais, the equivalent of USD 620.00. The classes begin in February and lasts for 5 months, period that my son returns to school, so I will have time to attend classes in the period that he is not with me. After the end of the professional course, I can work as an independent makeup artist and then be able to pay our expenses. Any amount is welcome. Thank you very much and happy holidays!
