Help a black nonbinary person with living expenses

Hi! My name is Amara, and I am a 24 year old black disabled non-binary lesbian from Raleigh, North Carolina. I have been unemployed since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic and I currently cannot work because of disabilities. I am immunocompromised and diagnosed with bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, panic disorder, anxiety, and autism, which makes it really hard to get and keep a job, especially in this current world climate. I am a licensed esthetician and pre-covid I was planning on going to school to major in gender studies and psychology. I am posting this gofundme to ask for help to cover living expenses including rent, groceries, and medication for my mental illnesses for the remainder of the year, as well as money to cover this website’s fees. I am raising this money for myself, to pay my monthly $700 rent and utilities, purchase my medications which include antipsychotics for my bipolar and borderline personality disorders, purchase groceries and gas for transportation to doctors and psychiatrist/therapist appointments, pay for doctors and psychiatrist/therapist appointments, and purchase my cat Winnie’s liver medication. I currently cannot get by on my disability checks alone and I am living on my own with no help from family. If I do not raise enough money I will be forced to move away from my closest friends and my girlfriend and back in with my parents which is a very toxic environment, though they are well meaning people, and honestly I’m very scared of what would happen to me mentally if I were to have to do that. Thank you for clicking on my gofundme and please take a second to share this link if you can.
