I need your help to fund my mental health treatment. After going through a very tough childhood, I was diagnosed with clinical depression, GAD, and OCD few years back. I've started my treatment but due to insufficient funds, I always back out in a month or two. I'm the sole breadwinner in my family of three. Both my mother and elder sibling deals with some form of mental health issues including schizophrenia.
Our all personal savings have been exhausted by now. My salary somehow takes care of household expenses and family members medication. But, that means, I always end up neglecting my own needs. I want to expand my work, be more productive, learn and travel. But, my illness ensures that I remain stuck. Now, after years of running without proper treatment, I've reached a point where my body is not supporting me. I cannot work without proper medication and therapy. I'm unable to concentrate on work or work at all. I need to start my treatment. For that, I need funds. This has become a vicious cycle from past 2-3 years. And, now I'm tired of it and completely hopeless.
Through this fundraiser, I'll fund my treatment for next 3-4 months. In between, as I start to get better, I'll start to work with better freelance clients. That will eventually help me out of this vicious cycle and I'll be able to live without financial and emotional stress. I also plan to start my post graduation by year end. And, be able to give back to the community!
Your single donation, however large or small, will bring me one-step closer to fight with this unending sadness. Mental health matters and we just cannot neglect it.
