Help me get back on my feet

Hey! My names Tabitha. If you’re taking the time to read this I just wanna say thanks! I truly don’t even know where to begin. My life has been a rollercoaster. I am an extremely mentally ill person who has suffered a history of abuse since I was 12, by people I’ve known and even strangers. It has made my life hard, and functioning even harder. After a stay in the emergency room and a hospitalization after a suicide attempt I have accrued quite a bit of debt. Paying these debts, including over 500 to my therapist and 300 to my psychiatrist, even making dents in these is impossible. I am really blessed I don’t currently have to pay rent but the living situation has been driving me to suicide. I am currently off medication because I can’t afford my psychiatrist and I felt he was steamrolling me and put me on a cocktail of medications that only made me feel worse. I have a loving partner and parents who support me but everyone is in dire financial straits. My mom is extremely sick and has no room for me and my stuff, and I don’t want to take anymore from her then I already have. She has seen me at my worst and nearly every month she has to talk me down from killing myself. I am unmedicated and have attempted suicide three times this year so far. I just can’t keep living like this. I need a place of my own and I have a great job but with my debt I won’t survive much longer. It sounds dramatic but it’s really true. I am clinically diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD, OCD and Major Anxiety Disorder. I want to pursue alternative methods of treatment but those cost money and time and gas because most of the clinics are in Richmond. All of this money will be going towards paying off my medical debt and helping me secure somewhere to live. If you can even share this or donate a dollar that would mean everything to me. I know this is a lot of money I just have a lot of debt from poor financial decisions when I was in an abusive relationship and medical related bills. Please help me live somewhere I can contribute and function normally.
