Help Me Not Be Homeless

For two years, I've been homeless. This is thanks to a disability that prevents me from working, typing, or even focusing for long periods of time. Recently, I found a place to live and my partner's going to help me pay the rent until Social Security realizes I'm disabled and starts giving me the stipend I'm legally allowed since I can't work anymore. Unfortunately, the landlord here wants a deposit.

On the entire house.


From just me.


So I need to raise one month's rent (at least) to secure my room. This is without having furniture still, this is without having my rent for next month or utilities paid. This is just a deposit so I'm not homeless again after two weeks of living in a real room, with real privacy, and real regular showers, and a real kitchen, and a thousand other tiny things I haven't had in two years that make my life not stressful and awful.


I don't really know what to say beyond that - it's just a little bit of money, really, standing between me and homelessness again. Anything extra will go toward furniture and other necessities to ensure that I'm in less pain than normal too (and maybe I'll be able to work on my writing, among other things, again without the constant exhaustion I currently experience).

Thanks to everyone who helped put me over the top! I've got all my current worldly possessions in my new room, I sign my lease tonight (was going to be yesterday but I got home a bit too late >.>), and later this week I get a new desk thanks to how far over my deposit we went.

I'm going to leave the campaign open for now to keep in touch with people who are getting art from Ania, as well if anyone wants to pitch any money toward me to help me get along while I'm waiting on Social Security to get back to me (still haven't heard from them at all). Also, look forward to some new work at my blog ( http://thewritingengine.wordpress.com) in the future and, possibly, another fundraising page for some board and card games I've been working on.

Thanks again for all your help!

The week's almost over and with it is going to come a mini-fundraiser my friends are doing at our regular game night. I'm really excited, it looks like between all of your help (those of you out there on the internet that have reached out) and my friends here at home I might just pull this off.

Thank you, everyone. We're not quite there, yet, though. Please consider resharing and, if you haven't contributed yet, throwing in a little. Thank you for everything you've done, everyone.
