#self harm mention cw #suicide mention cw
hey everyone! you might have noticed that i was largely absent for about a week. i hope i didn’t worry anybody, considering the nature of the posts that i made just prior to the hiatus. unfortunately, i was forcibly hospitalized because of self-harm and suicide watch. i’m feeling better now, and i’m on medication for depression. however, i have bills i need to pay. i’m also on a leave of absence for school, which means i’m out of dorm housing and off the school meal plan. fortunately, i have a place to stay, but i need to pay for food. im currently looking for employment, but i don’t know how long that will take.
for more context - i do have a family that pays for much of what i do, but i’m working to become less dependent on it. my father was abusive and one of his modes of #abuse involved him manipulating through the fact that his kids were financially dependent on him. he would not allow us to look for work while in his house because he didnt want us to have a source of money separate from what he allowed us. also, i could not be openly queer in the household that i was in. i’m working v hard to not go back to that situation. i’d like to have a stable amount of money saved up to fall back on.
my paypal email is firstname.lastname@example.org . if you help me out, and would like something in return, i love to draw, and i would absolutely love to draw you something. there is no minimum amount for receiving art from me! my tablet is currently broken, but i could scan pencil/marker drawings for you, or even send you a physical copy of what i’ve drawn if you like. samples of my art are below the cut! some are not safe for work !! cw for eyes, body image, skinny, and open spaces!
and last but not least, if you can’t donate (although any amount helps!), i would still appreciate reblogs and getting the word out! thank you!
