TW: Abuse, Alcohol,
My name is Suzi Bell, I’m 26 yrs old, passionate about music, art of any kind, and keeping things fun… I was born with Cerebral Palsy and have spent my life reliant on the help and care of my family and friends. I have a walker and a wheelchair (for longer distances or painful days) but my walker is my heart. Her name is Petunia, she’s lime green and zebra print, and without her I would crawl. My condition could definitely be worse, but it’s hard to walk any distance (especially on different terrains), carry things, climb steps, make food, blah blah blah.
I recently discovered that my mother has been lying to me and stole and coerced over $100,000 left to me by my dad and grandmother. This is on top of stealing my car a week after my house burned down, signing my disability benefits to herself, filing for ownership of my graphic design company, and if not physically hurting me, constantly telling me how no one could ever put up with helping me and I’ll never succeed in life. I disagree, but it’s hard to stay positive while only hearing how worthless you are, and having every financial gain I could use to begin a new and self sufficient life taken from me one way or another.
To top it all off my current living situation took a drastic turn for the worse and I will be homeless in 6 days due to an alcoholic housemate who after convincing me to move in, has finally admitted that we are being evicted due to him being VERY behind on rent.
After finding this out I started searching for other living situations and in the process I found out about an apartment complex for folks living with disabilities. I scored an interview and was accepted (!!!) But without a steady income to handle this situation so suddenly.. I might miss the opportunity if I cannot come up with funds to move by next week.
I set up a gofundme as a last ditch attempt to pull myself out of this situation collapsing around me. I know that I am capable of being completely independent. I have finally reached the point where I am asking for help. Please donate if you can. Any help is infinitely appreciated whether it be $$$, a reblog, or just a word of support. I know I’m not alone in this world.. I know I can make it.. I just hope I can prove it.
Please reblog this, yall! Anything helps, I only have like 50 followers so a signal boost would be amazing.
I was laying here on the couch and feeling sorry for myself because I’ve had to do housework and paid work and then I read this. I’m not in a position to help right now, but are you? If not, are you able to signal boost? Thanks.
I feel like I can’t write what I want to write on FB because family will read it and they just don’t get this shit.
I’m tired of seeing people who aren’t fat coming into the fat acceptance community, trying to help, and then moving on to their next ‘project’ or showing their true colours. They might believe whatever it is they are saying about fat stigma being bad and what not, but then follow it up with working on stopping childhood obesity and making food marketing better to stop obesity. Or celebrating the weight loss of people.
It makes me angry to work on a resource to help against fat stigma in the community, thinking it would be an open thing for the whole community and then finding out it’s just another notch on the academic belt.
It’s hard enough getting through life as a fat man without having this sort of shit happen. FUCK.
I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is
Excellent gif use
NEWSFLASH: I’m in my early thirties and I’m still trying to find out where the free food is.
Free food? Where? Gimme some!
