hi! i’m sef. i’m 22 years old, i live in florida, and i need at least $1000.

i suffer from bulging discs, osteoarthritis of the spine, dystonia, migraines, pinched nerves to my arms, hands, and legs, and a few things of the mental variety as well. my neurology office is evil and they’ve refused my insurance company’s phone calls and so my latest extension of leave was denied.

which means i haven’t been paid since june 29.

on that note, i’ve been told that if i return to work now i’ll have to face HR and they might just go ahead and fire me for my absence even though i was TOLD i didn’t need to go back to work yet by the insurance company while attempting to get this most recent extension of my leave. i’ve been doing some commissioned paintings in the meantime but that doesn’t really bring in the bank.

it’s a really fucked up situation, but i can’t afford to go back to my parents’ place. that’s an even MORE fucked up situation, including gaslighting about my illnesses, alcoholism, and emotional abuse. i’m also panromantic and neutrois and i’m not sure my dad is ok w/ my identity.

i can hold off on paying my bills til sept 3 but i really, really need some assistance. instead of signing up for one of those fundraiser sites that tend to either take a lot of the donation or are shitty people (i see you, gofundme), here is a direct link to donate through my paypal. (please don’t abuse access to my birth name. i go by a pseudonym for my privacy and as a buffer between my family and my life.)

$1000 will help me with: rent ($450), phone and internet ($250, internet has not been paid for a couple of months), and the credit card that’s been helping me manage groceries and gas during this whole thing. in the event that i am sent more than the amount i’ve asked for, i’ll be putting it into paying off the credit card. also crying from gratitude. a lot.

i’ve been relying a lot on y’all (including an earlier fundraiser when my insurance company was not paying me) and the fact that i’ve seen so much generosity… it’s really humbling. in lieu of a donation, i’d really appreciate a reblog, share, whatever. thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart.

so apparently i got fired from my job today which means my insurance will be gone tomorrow i guess (my dad might let me hop on his idk)

uh

the link above doesn’t seem to be working for anyone but i have a donate button on my sidebar, i have like a ton of medications? and one is about to run out… thank you

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!
We have a backer who gave to the $3000.00 tier. And while that is exciting and great for us, this is really important what she wants to do with her reward. She wishes to remain annoymous but this is what she wanted to say.

One in ten Americans has a disability. And yet one of the hardest things to deal with, being disabled or ill, is isolation. The people in your day to day life suddenly don’t understand, or maybe you can’t leave the house, to reach those that would. So you turn to the internet, and social media, where you can talk to people dealing with similar issues, and find a place for yourself.

Even in support groups, sometimes, it can be hard, because the only thing you have in common, the only thing you talk about, is illness.

I had an idea. I wanted to create a haven, a place where everyone could go, sick or not, able or not, and exist together. A place where people can gravitate together, and share similar interests, with no pressure. With no judgement, not a place just for us, but a place that we could be, and relax, together, and also with others. I saw Pumpkin Onlines Kickstarter, and I wanted to play the game immediately. The more I thought about it, the more I realized – maybe we could join forces, and bring my dream into Pumpkin Online, a perfect platform for us all to play and be together.

Thanks!”

Wait but that’s not all she also said this.

You have no idea how much this means to us. Personally I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I am on the severe end of things and I am on bedrest 23 hours a day. It is hard for me to sit up for any length of time most days. So all of my social interaction is done on line. Most of the people I know aren’t in such an extreme place, but many are not far behind.”

Her village seed reward allows the backer to create their own village, with 4 NPC families with shops. As well as be a producer with an active role in the game development. 

Her idea is to create an island in the game inspired by the Spoon Theory

The spoon theory was created by Christine Miserandino which explains to able-bodied people what it’s like to live with a chronic sickness of disability. You have to read the article in the link to understand.




SO GUYS if you read all that. We need to make this happen. Like we need to make this backer’s idea come alive because her tier makes her apart of our team now. If we can make our goal she can create this place in our game. The team is already discussing ideas and concepts for this place in our game map that will created by her. And will also bring awareness in our game for chronic illness. 


So ONCE AGAIN. We have 2 weeks left in our Kickstarter. If you want this happen any kind of amount would help push us further. We’re so close. We can do this. The teams is ready and willing to start working and go forward.

re-blogging again because I’m actually going to cry. You guys have no idea how much this would mean to me if you could boost this. tag it so others will see. I can’t even articulate….I’m feeling really bad right now and need to rest because I was in the hospital earlier today so I’m going to reblog this again with more later but if any of you could reblog this as a favor to me…it would mean a whole lot.
