Disabled Young Adult Seeking Help!
I’m 23, disabled, homeless, and I desperately need help to pay for my medication that is running out this week.My name’s Shayne (Shay). I’m trans*/non-binary, disabled, have zero income/financial support, a service animal, and I have no place to live right now.
I suffer from a number of disorders and syndromes including:
• Ehler-danlos syndrome
• cold urticaria
• adrenal insufficiency
• Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
• postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome
• poly cystic ovarian syndrome
• neuropathy nos
• major depressive disorder
I’m largely immobile and cannot work. Neither one of my biological family’s homes are a safe place for me to go. This is for a multitude of reasons.
I was promised to receive my share of an apartment deposit (total was $800) from my ex. Along with the payment for a parking ticket ($100) on my father’s car that they had gotten.
I was kind enough to understand financial stress and allow spread out payments.
When I had found out that they had been lying/cheating all 2.3 years we’d been together, they decided that “I didn’t deserve it anymore.” In addition to losing that money, I lost them and their family as my only support system.
I have no money apart from some pocket change. I’m currently living in a motel paid for by Salvation Army until Tuesday morning, and after that my service cat and I only have my car to live in.
Being in Wisconsin and sleeping in my car is dangerous because of the cold. Worse yet, something in my car is misfiring, meaning that until I can get it fixed with an electrical tuneup ($300 estimated), it’s practically useless and even more dangerous to live in.
To give you an idea of my expenses: my anxiety meds cost $1 flat through DHS, which is a blessing, but my pain medication is extremely important for me to have and runs around $89. My total cost of medications per month is around $175 and total cost of living is about $300, not including rent or personal items.
I’m asking Tumblr for help because I don’t know what to do until my disability determination is made, and that could take a very long time.
I thankfully have food stamps, but I need to find a way to keep paying for a place to stay that’s heated and safe, and most importantly, my medication. These past months have been extremely difficult and I need help.
I have a few friends from college willing to take my service animal and I in, but this would require my car fixed and all medications sorted out as they live across the country.
I’m willing to show my medical record, prove of income, anything to prove that this is genuine.
If you’re able to donate to help me, please, please message me.
I can now take PayPal donations at:
Any help is appreciated so much and once I am able to feel like I am in a safe and healthy environment; I am confident that I can win the fight against these illnesses. I promise that whatever happens; I will spend my time creating some sort of non-profit with the goal of helping young adults in similar situations.
Thank you again,
I’m running our of meds starting the day after tomorrow. Please anyone….
If you’re a trans woman of color who would like to attend Laverne Cox’s “Ain’t I A Woman?” event but you need a sponsor, please complete the following form so I can be in touch with you about how to get you a ticket. I’ve worked it out with CIIS and basically we will have the sponsor pay CIIS directly and put the ticket in your name. When you go to the box office to collect it, you will just have to give them your name, and your sponsors name. You will not need any form of ID! Also, I will be candid in the email that I sent you and I’ll simply describe it as the “CIIS Speaking Event”, so feel free to use any email that you can. Thank you! - Lola
Artsy people who follow me???

(Picture is a text from my dad from last week)
My internet is getting turned off tomorrow, and my phone is getting shut off any day now, so I can no longer put this off. Though it makes me very uncomfortable and really anxious, I have to ask Tumblr for help.
TL;DR: My family needs $1400 by the 17th of January or the following happens: no power, no water, no rent, no phones, no form of transportation, no medicine, and I’m unable to finish my year at college.
Here’s the story:
My mother is mentally ill. Two days before Christmas she went missing and stayed missing for a little over 36 hours. We finally found out she has moved to a different town and she doesn’t want us to know where she’s living. She can’t afford to see the doctors and therapist she needs to see, so I’m really, really worried about her health. My father is trying to support four people on his sole income, and it just isn’t enough. We’ve tried to partially pay the important bills to keep our water and power on for as long as possible, but everything has to be paid in full by the 17th. We probably could have managed, but when it rains it pours, and we’ve got other serious issues: My car’s transmission stopped working. I have no way to get to work or to school. My father’s car battery died yesterday, and we can’t afford to buy a new one. He has borrowed his sister’s car, but once she asks for it back he has no way to get to work, which will be the end of us. We live in a rural area and there is no public transportation. Besides our issues with our cars, my school (ETSU) demands that I pay the remaining $630 I owe for this year by the 16th or they’ll withhold my grades and transcripts and any work I do this semester will be for nothing. I can’t afford to take out more student loans to go to school for an extra semester so I absolutely need to come up with this money. My father and I have both tried to get loans from a couple of different banks, but no one will lend him money because our house was foreclosed four years ago (minimum of six years has to pass after a bankruptcy or foreclosure to be considered in good standing for a loan) and I don’t have a credit history extensive enough to qualify for anything. We’ve tried asking our friends and family for help; my dad asked for help from the church he and my mom has attended for 30 years, and not a single person has offered to do anything but pray. When we asked our family, they called my dad a drug addict and refused to “help his addiction.” (My father sustained serious injuries after being electrocuted, he had four surgeries and he has to take Lortab, which he is in fact addicted to, but that’s common for people taking prescription pain medication. My father has never taken his medication except as directed.) Because we have no money, dad can’t afford to refill his prescriptions anyway so he is forced to ween himself off of his medication which is highly dangerous and not good for his health, and also means he is in severe chronic pain that will only get worse.
It absolutely destroys my heart to hear my dad weep and weep and cry out for help and see that no one can or will help us. There’s nothing in this world I want more than to at least give him a little peace of mind, the knowledge that we have rent paid and our bills caught up and we won’t be homeless after a month. Please, PLEASE help us any way you can. I understand completely if you have no money to give, but please reblog this so others can see our plea.
If you can donate, there’s a Paypal donation link on my page. If you do donate, feel free to message me so I can repay you in some way. I can give you a free Tarot reading, or draw you something, write a poem to your cat for you, be your fashion consultant via skype for a week, use your name in my novel, idk, something.
Thank you so much in advance for reading this, reblogging it, and/or donating.
Hey, guys, Allie is awesome and things have kind of been in turmoil with her family for a while, which I know has been rough on her. So if you could help her out, even a little, that would be fantastic.
And if you donate to her and let me know, I’ll write you a little story/vignette (something like three to five paragraphs?) about the character or fandom of your choice. Cool? Cool.
Jaegerqueers could really use a new mod or two.
The current mod is going to be busy working on their BFA during the next three college semesters and would like to know that Jaegerqueers is in good hands.
The requirements for being a mod are as follows:
- you have to be queer yourself
- you need to track the #jaegerqueers tag
- you must tag submitted and reblogged posts with #jaegerqueers, #pacific rim, #queercanon, all the characters involved, and all identities involved in that specific order
- if someone submits via the askbox, you must also put some sort of short, affirming comment in the reply section
- do not change the theme or icon, as the current mod worked really hard on making everything look nice
- you must have a personal blog that can be linked to in the About page
- you cannot publish dub-con or non-con submissions (that is an absolute no okay)
- it is not required that you have any previous queer headcanons for Pacific Rim, although it helps
If you are interested in becoming a mod for Jaegerqueers, simply send an ask.
Keep on queering the apocalypse, people!
Anybody happen to know anyone with a zine or a lit mag or anything looking for submissions?
Having witnessed the shitfuckery going on in certain official tumblrs, I make a request…
Can someone please photoshop the Tumblr and Syfy logo’s over Esposito and Castle’s faces, respectively?
looking to buy a graphic tablet
I am looking for something on the cheaper side. I haven’t ever used one and I want to try it out but not spend much money. I am probably going to pick it up off ebay in the end, so I am looking for brand recomendations and helpful insights. It will be used for costume renderings mostly and i have a pc. Anyone have suggestions?
What makes your cosplay hero?
No, I’m not asking what makes a great cosplayer, but rather what do you really admire about the cosplayers you look up to the most. Is it love and passion they show towards a character they cosplay a lot? Is it their photos? Is it their ability to grow and change with their different cosplays? Their honesty? Charity work?
No hate here, please. I don’t want names or anything. I just want to know what you all love about the cosplayers who you reblog or wish to see at each con, famous or not.
So, what is it that you look for in your cosplay hero?

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes
Man, I’m trying to find a copy of “Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes” for myself for my birthday (oh god, I’ll be 31 in eight days… whhhhhhhhyyyyyy!?!?) but Amazon and Ebay are no help.
Anyone else been able to hunt down a copy? Even our local bookstores don’t have it!
I got lucky with my copy, because a friend found it at a book fair, I think. All the sites I’ve checked online are sold out- anyone have a lead or able to help beardedboggan out?
OMG, WHAT THE HELL IPHONE?
Didn’t it used to be that your iPod would just HOLD your music, like you update it and then it is ON the stupid thing? Because occasionally, for NO REASON, my iPhone doesn’t update and then all of my freaking Audiobooks and half of my songs just aren’t there… WHAT?
Tell me there is someway to just like… fix this. Or I’m going to choke a bitch. Or a phone. This is so freaking annoying!
Putting Things In Perspective: The photo on the left is Hurricane Katrina moments before it made landfall in Louisiana back in 2005. The photo on the right is Super Typhoon Haiyan, currently making landfall in the Philippines. Basically, what is happening in the Philippines is historic for the world. Super Typhoon Haiyan is one of the strongest storms in world history. You read that correctly, WORLD HISTORY. It is also the strongest storm in the world since 1979. Loss of life is unavoidable in the case of this Super Typhoon. It formed when two separate typhoons joined together. To put things in perspective, a storm bigger than Hurricane Katrina is hitting the Philippines. Unprecedented, indeed.
Absolutely tragic too. :(
Keep the Philippines in your thoughts, please.
What makes it even worse is that it’s going to be mainly in the Visayas region which just experienced a massive earthquake, and there are still some areas that hadn’t received help because they’re hard to reach. The road to recovery has only barely started and now Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda in the Philippines) appears.
If anyone out there wants to help, the Philippine Red Cross is currently open to donations. Even from people outside of the Philippines through this website. (You can pick “Supertyphoon Yolanda” under the campaign field, and since the denomination is in peso, 1 USD = 43 PHP fyi.)
Reblogging for the donations links.
