Help me get my own place/on my feet

Hello. I'm a 31-year-old woman and I've re-enrolled at the University of Maryland at College Park to pursue a professional degree in sociology. Unfortunately, I'm still living in my parents' home in Gaithersburg, which is difficult for a number of reasons (I don't drive, so I have to take the bus, which is about a 2-and-1/2-hour commute, both ways; living there is just an overall toxic environment with drama and pressure, which hasn't been conducive to healing my depression and balancing my schoolwork and other needs, etc.). I have depression, anxiety, and chronic pain that's made finding consistent part-employment difficult as well.

What I'm trying to do right now is crowdfund money to help me get out of my parents' house and into a place in or near College Park. I am looking for accessible work on campus, and will probably look for a place with roommates (the local housing co-ops look promising). It's just tough lately, so I appreciate any help you can give!

I'm sorry there hasn't been an update for a while. I've been swamped lately. I still want to keep this going. I was able to successfully apply for a crisis fund from my school to get some essentials, like toiletries and other things to make life easier as long as I'm still in the situation I am. That's helped, but it's not quite enough. Another big thank you to everyone who has already donated and/or shared!
