Help Lip secure safe housing funds!

Hello everyone my name is Adelyn Grimes but Im better known to my friends as Lip. I am 20 years old born and bread in New York. From a young age I can say I had a rougher life then most, my dad was abusive up until the day he offed himself. He had severe mental illnesses that unfortunately got passed down to myself and siblings. My family and I moved around a lot. My moms hope was to put us in a few safer environment and hopefully that would change our outcomes, that didn’t prove true. My mom left about a year and a half ago due to my siblings choices affecting her negatively, not only mentally but physically it was making her sick. Unfortunately my sibling and I are now adults living together; their life choices are constantly putting my life in danger. I wish this was an exaggeration. This year alone I was threatened with a knife more than once, attempted to be broken in on, threatened to be killed and on top of everything I am terrorized often/ as well as being physically attacked. Having to watch my back in fear is not only exhausting but exasperating my already delicate state of health. I have a nerve condition which makes simple task not only complicated but unimaginably painful. In addition a brain condition, I’m just constantly in pain. I don’t sleep at night and I have anxiety attacks constantly. Though I deal with lots of negatives, I feel like they have shaped me into the person I am today. I still push on and continue to pursue my career in modeling and hope to get back to school once I’m in a more healthy and stable environment. Because of Covid it’s been nearly impossible to get on my feet and especially find a job. It’s extremely difficult to ask for help but I figure if I can get one person to care and help me out I can pay it back 10x in the future. Now is the time for me to leave before something irreversible is done. I know I may be a stranger to some, friends to others, but I’m a human, and right now I need anyone to look down at me with kindness in their hearts and help me out. Funds will be used to pay rent, pay for transportation, buy food and pay for medical expenses/ doctors fees and support me until I can find steady work. I will be relocating which is quite an expensive process, funds will also be used towards moving expenses (shipping, buying a bed, ect) Even if you can’t help thank you for taking your time and reading a little bit of my story.
