Please Help

Due to my beautiful son having acute anxiety, he has not been able to attend mainstream school for two years. At times, as his sole parent, I have been unable to leave the house. It's devastating as an adoring Mum, to see this day in, day out. His anxiety is now also including social settings, so he barely leaves the house. It's very isolating.

I'm unable to work which, after juggling money for sooooo long, has ended up seeing us so close to eviction. We are very much behind on rent & other bills, and every single day I'm faced with wondering "what am I going to do???"

I would like to pay off my rental arrears and put us in advance. We have incredible landlords who deserve to have tenants who can pay on time, every time.
My sons illness has been a heartbreaking journey. I really want to be able to take this gutwrenching stress of potential homelessness away from us, and focus on helping him. I cannot work away from the home, and unfortunately Centrelink does not see me as qualifying for the Carers Payment, which essentially leaves me little choice than to leave my 13yo home alone with a mental health illness. But I refuse to do that. He needs me. 

I also have a business idea I'd love to get off the ground, which I can actually do from home! So I can still be with him and hope to start making a few dollars as well. This is making breed & condition specific dog food, and my dog is testament to the recipe for him.

Please help us! Would you mind sharing this post on your wall? Being evicted could ultimately be the worst thing for this beautiful soul who does not cope with change.

Thank you for reading our story
