Help Gii Survive & Thrive

Hi, my name is Gii. I’m a mixed black/white trans non-binary person, who has recently relocated up north. I’m chronically depressed and have been managing my depression for over 10 years.

The past year has been one of the hardest I’ve ever faced; things quickly went from bad to worse after a severe depressive episode last October. I started accessing medication in January in an attempt to look after my mental health, but in the space of 6 months, my mental health has deteriorated massively and I am struggling everyday to take care of myself whilst battling constant thoughts of suicidal ideation.

I’m exhausted from daily life, much of which has been amplified by being trans. I was forced out of my local pole studio after being outed by a peer - which has been devastating emotionally - and I haven’t been able to fully access exercise and healing movement for months now. Every day I am reminded of that loss, as now my body shows signs of physical decline, and my chronic shoulder pain has resurfaced.

I struggle to do even the most basic tasks without becoming weak, lethargic and overwhelmed. I have been struggling to buy groceries and cook for myself, and as a result, my health has worsened, causing me to become malnourished and anaemic.

I miss having the capacity to look after myself. I have always been the type of person to be resourceful in times of hardship, but these days, I think more about giving up than I do continuing on.

This, on top of what has already been an extremely difficult 6 months, has greatly affected both mine and my partner’s mental health. In the midst of recovering from a transphobic attack outside their home, they have been forced into working 52hr weeks so that we could move to safe housing. Although we have now managed to relocate safely, we are struggling to cover the costs of having moved, daily necessities and upcoming bills.

Any donation is massively appreciated. The systems in place to support chronically ill folx constantly fail us.

Your donations will help me:
  • pay for my medication
  • recover from moving costs/ settling in funds
  • covering rent/utilities
  • pay for groceries/ be able to buy ready made meals for the days in which I am too unwell to cook for myself
  • help me access healthcare for my chronic shoulder pain
  • help me recover enough so I can manage daily tasks and admin/ job searching/ accessing ESA

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please only donate if you are able to – please share if you cannot.

thank you thank you thank you <3
