Hope for a Fresh Start

Hello, My name is Daniel. I'm here today because I've no where else to turn. Throughout the course of my life I've suffered from various mental health issues, severe depression & anxiety foremost among them. Due to these conditions, I lost my job and accumulated crippling debt and a constant struggle to pay basic expenses, food and rent. All of this came to a head and I attempted take my own life. My loving parents stopped me from following through with the act and were able to render immediate short term financial assistance. I can't ask anymore of them as there is only so much they can do. They're both retired and live out of state now.
I'm still struggling and am attempting to get back on my feet in the hopes of living a normal life. The purpose of this fundraiser is to generate the money needed to pay off the debts and catch up on my accumulating expenses as I'm falling behind on bills and rent. Thankfully, I've just gotten hired to a new job to help with the long term on getting back some semblance of normalcy, but for the immediate and midterm, I need this campaign to get back on my feet again. That is why I'm here now. I don't have any other support network or friends to help me and I've nowhere else to go. With your support I can get out of this crippling rut and once again become a productive member of society. I can't express how much it would mean to me to finally get out of this predicament and finally be on the path to recovery. I've known the hardships of mental health for most of my 42 years on this earth and to be able to finally have some semblance of relief and piece of mind in my life will go a long way to my recovery. Thank you all for taking the time to hear me. Stay well and God Bless.
