Help Kit Cover Their Expenses

Updated January 10th, 2019

I’ve been a disability rights activist since 2013. I’ve written a lot under the handle kpagination. I'm multiply-disabled: I'm autistic, have bipolar-NOS, generalized anxiety, C-PTSD, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, POTS, and a possible mTBI from 2016.

I've always been disabled, but the effects have been amplified by adulting (and possible mTBI), largely without direct support. It sort-of worked for a while, but my chronic pain, fatigue, and brain fog increased; my mental health declined. I crashed in late 2016 and didn't really recover. 

My health issues continued to go downhill until I had to quit my job in Jan. 2019. I’m applying for benefits like temporary disability cash assistance, food benefits, SSDI, housing and rental assistance, etc.  I want to take care of my cat, who is my best friend, and pay my bills.

So, I’m asking for help: The cat needs prescription food and antibiotics for a sinus infection. I need to see doctors and pay for my meds (fortunately I am on Medicaid so I do have health coverage). I also have to buy groceries and pay rent, though I have been fortunate to have some friends helping me some.

Thanks again for reading, boosting, and/or donating! I (and the cat) appreciate it :)

...Once more, bad news! My housing situation is now significantly damaged and... That's alarming, I'm still unemployed and disabled and am hoping to remain in my current location, but it's gonna take a lot of work. In the meantime, the cat and I appreciate any help.

There's good news and bad news! I have applied for things but still need help. I'm scraping some together from a bit of freelancing and generous donations from friends and family, but it's not enough, and anything you can give is vastly appreciated.

I have finished the online application for SSI/SSDI and am waiting on the rest of the paperwork to fill out. I also applied for temporary disability cash assistance and food assistance locally. But SSI/SSDI takes a while, and I'm still waiting on Maryland DHR & BCDSS to process my local benefits applications.

Thank you in advance for sharing or donating.

I had to quit my job last night (Jan. 9, 2019) as my health issues exceeded my capacity to even do hourly work for them. I’m applying for benefits like temporary disability cash assistance, food benefits, SSDI, housing and rental assistance, etc. Given that event, I'm asking for help.

The cat needs prescription food and antibiotics for a sinus infection. I need to see doctors and pay for my meds (fortunately I am on Medicaid so I do have health coverage). I also have to buy groceries and pay rent, though I have been fortunate to have some friends helping me some there.

Thank you so very much for reading, boosting, and/or donating! The cat and I appreciate it. <3

I'm still applying for SSDI and busy dealing with SNAP benefit application complications and getting food is hard…

I also found out that I may have gotten a persisting, minor TBI in October 2016 and I’m trying to get in with a neurologist to talk about it and run tests. My ability to work is still bad and I’m lucky to even have a job and some help with rent.

but my bank account has less than $35 to last until my next paycheck on the 15th with minimal funds coming in before then. and I need to pay some credit card bills, eat, get my cat meds for her sinus infection and skin allergies, take public transit, and make another rent payment.

Thanks in advance for any support or sharing, y’all. I’m trying and have devoted my life to activism and now I really need help.
