Knaishia's Moving Fund
I'm finally moving!
"Why are you leaving?"
Well for one I've wanted to leave this place since I was 10. But more pressingly I've been really struggling. After surviving an abusive relationship I've had to deal with ptsd, anxiety, depression and agoraphobia. I can't be in public without having panic attacks. I can't go anywhere or do anything by myself. I've been getting help, healing, and it's really clear that BEING here is hurting me. I am anxious and hypervigilant all the time, I cannot escape my triggers. But when I'm not here it isn't as bad. I can function better just by virtue of being no where near my abuser or the places I've been hurt. That's before we get into the cost of living, or the pollution levels. I gotta get out of here.
"Where are you going?" See that part where I talk about being abused? I'm not putting that on this very public thing. But ppl I know can message and ask
"What about [obligation on long island]?" I'll pass it to someone else or handle it remotely once I'm settled. Again, feel free to message me. And if this really upsets you ask this question: Is it more important than my survival?
"Why are you crowd funding this?" Mental illness really hit my ability to work in a 'regular' job and I'm sure you know my work is as a webcomic creator isn't making me a ton of cash. I'm broke!
"But why should I give you any money?" Cuz you have extra and like me and/or are feeling generous. This isn't a stick up you can click away and nothing happens. So if you're mad, do that.
"I don't think you should move! Because [reasons]!" That's nice. I dont care.
A few people have expressed reasonable concern over my cliff notes about the abuse I went through so a few more to soothe everybody:
-I've been out of the abusive relationship for a bit over 2 years, it was just pretty awful and left me with a bunch of trauma
-pretty much nobody knew it was happening at the time. Because that's how abuse works.
-i have people moving with me to help with everything but like seriously moving this far is expensive plz help
