Last year my epilepsy took a turn for the worse and because of the stigma attached to my condition this had a major impact on my chances of employment after I graduated. Although I managed to get a few interviews, I was continuously rejected when I disclosed my epilepsy.
I was lucky enough to live with my partner's dad and brother when I finished university who were able to watch me when she wasn't there. Unfortunately my mum could not as she often works nights. Aware of my circumstances and Dannii's income he didn't ask for much money but six months later we were evicted because of a false accusation from the abusive neighbours in our building. The council found him and her brother a property but he had to move to a different county so we were unable to go because of where Dannii's job is.
Almost without anywhere to live her aunt and uncle offered us a room at their house as the rest of Dannii's family lives far away and my mum is not in a position to house us. But we have rent and bills to pay and with one income our situation is getting worse.
Back in December, I was offered a job but since disclosing my epilepsy my job has been put on hold to have various medical checks because I am a risk in the workplace. Just when I thought I was going to be able to start I have been told more checks are required and I don't know how much longer I will be out of work for with no start date yet.
Unfortunately as this continues to drag out the burden of rent, bills and food is falling on my partner. She has travel to pay out for to get to work and is not earning enough to continue paying for everything until I start my job.
Neither of our families are in a position to help us financially. At the moment I feel like a complete failure on my part. I never thought I would be in this position. I always worked before university but the change in my health has jeopardized so many potential opportunities.
With no options left and little money to survive on we are getting desperate, even to buy food, and time is starting to run out. So I have come to gogetfunding to see if any kind individuals could help us. Any donations would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
