I have bipolar disorder. I am on an ever-increasing list of medications. I have always caused problems for my family and they are getting pretty fed up with it. With my 18th birthday rolling around in less than a year, I figured I would try this as an opportunity to prevent myself from becoming homeless and also to save my parents and siblings (I have 6 siblings - 4 sisters and 2 brothers) another year of hard times. While most people wouldn't likely want to donate to this cause, put yourself in my position. I'm sure you would understand. This is more of an experiment than anything. By the way, don't think I'm a complete mooch, I have a job - it's just not going to cut living costs and school.
Things the money will go towards:
- My medications
- School costs (I really want to continue on after high school so I'm not a complete failure in my parents eyes)'
- doctor visits (2x weekly with different doctors, one a neuropsychologist and the other a psychiatrist)
I know it may seem like a dumb idea, but I really am just hoping that it at least helps. If not, oh well, I'll find another way to deal with my problems.
Another thing to consider is how severely my medication impacts my ability to work. It nearly knocks me out and sometimes I have extreme trouble. My attendence in school is declining every week because of the side effects of my meds.
THIS IS BASICALLY JUST TO KICKSTART MY LIFE AS AN ADULT.
Thank you to everyone. At least consider my proposal.
