So a close friend of mine, Hunter, is in a tough situation. He’s struggled with depression and anxiety for a long time, and staying with his parents only exacerbates the problem. They are toxic and abusive, and they are honestly the main source of his problems. Right now he’s in an inpatient treatment for another 20 days or so. However, the treatment he’s receiving is not particularly helpful for him, as it’s focused on alcoholics and drug addicts, of which he is neither.
But there is a crisis. When he’s released, he was going to end up back at his parents’ house, where he would be verbally, mentally, and emotionally abused to the point where he would fall back down into a deep depression. To fight that, he is going to come stay with me and my roommate.
As much as we are willing to help to get him on his own two feet and progress with recovery, we won’t be able to financially support him the whole way. He will be looking for work as soon as possible, but it will be quite a transition for him. After this inpatient stay, we’ll be finding a way to get him therapy that will really help him fight his long-term depression and anxiety. Anyone who’s been depressed knows how difficult it is to find a job when every day is a struggle. So he’ll be doing the best he can, but like I said, a job can’t come around until he’s further in his recovery.
So I guess what I’m asking is, if there’s anything you can spare, so he can eat, so he can access therapy, so he can recover — that would be so freaking helpful. He means a LOT to me, and I really want to see him do his best. And so any way I could reach out to resources for him, I will do that.
If you can’t donate, then please signal boost. That would mean the world to him and me. Thank you.
(Donations will go to his paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org)
He still needs help, so please remember to signal boost if you can’t donate. Thank you <3
I now have
three four (I forgot one) tattoo ideas and zero money for them.
I do wish the copy shop was a little more punk/diy-loving and less businesslike, but it seems like a good place, if I do get hired.
