its like 6am and i cant go to bed and the most recent donor to my gofundme was from a youtuber with 1million subscribers which made me feel like orphan annie for 2 days 

despite months of board postings and link sharings its like the sahara in my gofundme.. twitter, reddit, instagram, tumblr social media platform resources are all exhausted

i feel vulnerable with it up, like yea i really hope exes don’t see me in this condition, but at the same time i’ve continued to keep it up because i’m justified. i pray that i wake up and someone has donated. however i know the pandemic hit hard asf and people really cant and thats fine.

i do not have transportation nor can i stand on my jello legs on I-287 splaying posters up like ive seen others do. theres no one to email, no relatives or friends i still have contact with from high school.

when i stopped working i lost contact from everyone, and i feel like im a hermit with no reach.

 btw, yes i have 3 herniated disks that are set to go under spine surgery soon. i use a cane and walk very slow keep in mind if you give some new advice for fundraising that requires going into the real world

I’m so sorry to hear about what you’re going through @buggly! It can definitely be difficult to manage life and also run a fundraiser at the same time. It’s cool that a YouTuber helped you out! Not everyone can say that. 

 

 Would you like me to review your fundraiser to see if there are any tips I might be able to suggest for you?
