My name is Megan (though I go by Nick) and I'm a 22 year old disabled gamer that raises bearded dragons. Currently, I am fighting for disability benefits in the state of Texas but we still have to attend a court hearing, and even then I won't receive them until three months later. My family is pretty tight on money right now, but that's not really why I started crowdfunding.
My mother has been a severe alcoholic for as long as I can remember, often drinking a gallon or two of vodka a week and getting violent whenever she gets drunk. She has been abusive since I was around 5-7 years old, and my grandmother in recent years has become extremely verbally abusive. Not only does she constantly belittle me and call me names, but she will start fights with me about my disorders and blame my trauma on me. When I was 11-14, her husband molested me and she will bring it up in fights and say it was my fault. She will blame my abusive relationships on me and say I'm not disabled.
My car was stolen on my 21st birthday, so if I could get the funds together from this to retrieve everything that my mother has pawned of mine and get the money saved up to leave as soon as I get my disability money, I plan on buying a car with the lump sum. As I said before though, it will be several months before I will be able to get my payment from SSA. I will post updates as time goes on on items that I retrieve from the pawn shop (that my mother forced me to pawn) and doctor's visits paid for, etc. All I want is to actually live in a home where I can be happy and I won't be hurt.
