Yep, I did it.  Please share and help me (1) not become homeless, and (2) pay for basic living expenses and medical bills.

Hi, Paige here. I’ve written before here on Tumblr about my financial difficulties - stemming from my unemployment due to disability, and the high cost of searching for a diagnosis. I recently pled for help putting a new battery in my car - which in Detroit is a necessity - and I’m hugely grateful…

Bringing this back with more urgency, as my mother and I are in the midst of a money crisis.  My mother has been forced to leave her current job at the nursing home at which she has been underemployed - many nursing homes have chronic management problems and staffing issues.  We currently have no savings, and only have her last paycheck to rely on until she finds another position.  This leaves us scrambling to cover our most important bills - groceries, her car payment and insurance, my most critical medications, and at the very least her phone bill.  I also unfortunately have a $160 traffic ticket - my first in years, ugh - that is late, and will soon turn into a suspended license and a bench warrant.  My mother and I are strategically not paying some bills, risking shut-offs, etc., to cover the most important expenses, but we could still use a little help. 

My blog, as noted above, has a donate button - my PayPal ID is hansonp @ uwindsor.ca.  I also have a Etsy shop, where I sell jewellery - mainly for folks with chronic illnesses or disabilities, but also for anyone who supports the cause, or likes teaspoons.  I do custom orders as well.  You can find The Sibilant Shoppe here: www.etsy.com/shop/thesibilantshoppeAny orders and donations will go directly to helping my mother make the most pressing bills. Really and truly - anything helps - even $1 donations.  I hate doing this, particularly because I feel like a huge burden to my mother because of my illness/disability and can’t help more.  Getting the word out about how hard she works and how much she needs help is about all I can do right now. 

Finally, a reblog, if nothing else, would help immensely. Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who’s donated or shared/reblogged so far - we’re at $110 right now, which is hugely helpful.  Our biggest fear at the moment is rent, which is $525/month. We are now at the point where we’ll have no money coming in until my mother finds a new position, and then of course has to work through the pay period and wait on a paycheck.  If nothing else is paid, the rent has to be covered - we live in a co-op, and one missed payment means eviction.  I hate to be pushy, but, well, we are now in official nightmare freakout-mode.  Please, if you can, help out with a reblog, sharing my shop’s link, $1 donation, anything.  Thank you. <3
