My name is Aj and I am a 19 year old trans man who is stuck in a house that does not accept me as well as emotionally abuses me. The emotional abuse I sustain is from my grandmother who constantly deadnames me and refuses to use my pronouns. My mental health has been on the decline since the pandemic started due to being stuck in a house with my family and I cannot seek therapy out of fear. I have no driver’s license or job as my family has prevented me from seeking either so I have no income and rely on what little state funding I receive from college. My friends cannot take me in so I am seeking a shelter in the meantime.
I plan on trying to leave in December and any money received will go to emergencies as well as food, transportation and new clothes I will need for when I make my eventual escape. I cannot live in my household any longer for I live in fear of my safety. Please consider supporting me in my time of need
