Extreme anxiety disorder, I use photography tohelp

Hello everyone, my name is Bjorn and I am half Danish and half Ojibway (Indigenous) from Canada. I am doing this gofundme in the hopes of recieving a little financial help from giving individuals. A few years back I suffered a serious brain injury, I have since healed yet suffer long lasting effects in my memory and in the development of a serious anxiety disorder. The way I keep myself from needing to take anti-anxiety medication (which can be very deteimental to ones own health ) is that I have taken up the art of photography, as a device to keep me grounded, ease the fidgeting and reduce my anxiety, warning off many panick attacks I purchased for myself a heavily used and abused entry level digital mirrorless camera last year. But as this past year has come and gone and the camera itself has begun to malfunction. With the screen flickering, the shutter button not always working and the on/off switch now coming loose. I am definitely in need of a new camera. And since starting photography my skills themself have significantly improved as this year has progressed, so much so that I am wanting to one day turn this into a business. I am going to make serious effort in continuing to improve my photography skills with the hopes of reaching a skill level that also can make me a living and a business. And I know that with a camera replacement I can achieve that goal and dream. But with me being broke in post secondary and recently being layed off during this covid pandemic I am in need of a little help from caring individuals. A new camera will ensure I have the device I need for my anxiety, but also ensuring I have one that will not break in the near future, by being a new camera that grows with my skill level. As my current camera is showing its limitations in its abilities as an entry level camera. Any help is greatly appreciated, and will be something I would never forget. Thank you :)
