uh Hi everyone!! i know this is  kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.

Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.

Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.

Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.

I Have Been Getting…

gailsimone:

…a lot of DM’s about questions of depression and mental health, generally from readers who are fond of my work and and struggling with these issues themselves. Some of them indicate that they are having suicidal thoughts and so of course, I worry.

I have to say categorically, I just am not qualified to say much about this topic. I did suffer from depression a good while back but am in no way knowledgeable enough to speak on the subject and am convinced that my opinions will be utterly unhelpful. Essentially, my opinions come down to the idea that you are a person of worth and value and I hope for better days ahead.

As I said, I struggled with depression for a number of years due mostly to family and health issues. I know that for me, just having people think I had a value and that things might get better DID help, slowly but surely. But that was just for me, and clearly it would be naive to think that helps everyone.

So there is probably not much I can say that would be helpful. What I would ask is that those of you struggling through these dark times give another chance to getting help, through therapy, a doctor, a support group, or whatever it is that you think is worth trying. I know sometimes things seem pretty hopeless. But I do believe pretty much everyone has worth and value. I do believe that there are joyful things that we can cling to, even when times are very bleak. 

So, I am posting this thread so that those who wish to can share what they do to cope, in the hope that it might also help others. Please only share if you feel comfortable doing so, but it might be that the exact thing that helps you will help someone else in a similar situation.

And again, I am not at all qualified to speak to this, but it does seem to me that if you like this stuff, fantasy and comics and film and music and art, that you are likely a creative person in some way, and the world always needs creative thinkers. And if this stuff brings you joy, you really are not alone in that, we see countless thousands who feel the same way right here on Tumblr and elsewhere online every day, many of whom have been through what you are going through.

If you have found something that helps you, and can share it here, please do. 

The best advice I ever got was not to look at living as an “All or Nothing” deal. Sometimes the thought of not killing yourself and going on for 60+ years is horrifying.

Don’t think of it like that. Think “I’m not going to kill myself this week.” If that’s too much, think “I’m not going to kill myself today” or even “I’m not going to kill myself in this next five minutes.”

I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but realize that you can always kill yourself later. So you don’t have to do it right now.

It’s not “All or Nothing.” Thirty more seconds of life is thirty more seconds of life. Thirty more seconds to hold on just a bit longer. Thirty more seconds to see if you can can get past this spike of emotion and pain just like you did all those other times before.

Don’t you let anyone tell you you’re a coward or that you’re weak. That’s bullshit.

Living with suicidal depression is way the hell up there on the list of Bravest Things Anyone Has Ever Done. It’s like fighting a cougar and a shark at the same fucking time.

However long you fight this, you are a hero for lasting just as long as you have.

i accepted a job offer today!!! i’ll be making decent money too! i start April 15th, and it will probably be a month after that before i start getting paid. so, donations are still VERY needed and INCREDIBLY appreciated, i’d still really like to get out of this abusive living situation before then if i can, or soon after. any support will be met with immense gratitude, as without the help of every kind person who has contributed to me in any way (even just reblogging this and my other posts …just thanks ok you’re all awesome) i would not be even close to where i am rn. unfortunately im still struggling to feed myself, afford my medications, and now as an added expense i need a few reliable professional attire items for when i start the job. i’m so close to being able to support myself, i just need a little more help from anyone who can. ily all and thanks for caring

OKAY FRIENDS SO I’M GONNA BE THAT GUY AND ASK YOU ALL FOR HELP. This here is Duo. He’s my best friend. Love of my life. And I desperately want him to come to Finland with me in May. On previous trips I have literally cried because I missed him and I’m a big baby loser like that. All I want is to bring him with me and have my little family in Helsinki. I can leave him with Ella when I need to go home to Canada and rest assured he’s being taken care of. While I know he can probably be okay with someone else he is my cat and I’m his person and he doesn’t really like to be around anyone but me. I really don’t want to let him go.
His relocation from Canada to Finland is mostly together but it’s been incredibly expensive. I’ve already had one vet visit that cost me $200, I have another coming up, bringing him along with the airlines is $300 (it would be less if I wasn’t switching airlines halfway). I can cover all of that, except for this one thing.
Duo has a heart murmur. I didn’t know about it until we brought him to the vet last time. It could have been something he’s had all his life, but I’m not sure. This could be the result of a heart condition that might make him flying lethal. I desperately want to bring Duo with me, but I don’t want to kill him. The only way we can know if he’s safe to go or if he needs treatment is to do this blood test, which is about $200. And it is just the only thing I haven’t been able to cover on my own.
Thank you guys. I’ve done a lot of it with your help with my commission drive. He has treats and collars and a vest coming in to help with his travel anxiety. I got him his flight-certified carrier and his rabies vaccination all thanks to you. I hate to ask for more of your charity, but if you have it in you I would greatly appreciate it.
My paypal is playerprophet@gmail.com, and that’s also where you can send money with an Electronic Funds Transfer if you live in Canada. If I can do work for the money I still have a few outlying commissions to do, but I’d happily draw things for you in exchange for making my family happen. I’d even gladly send you some photos of us together when we’ve settled in. Also visit my storenvy shop. All profits will go toward the move, and if you sent a donation and would like me to send you a couple of postcards, please say so. 
Duo and I have never been apart for long and I don’t want to lose him! Please help!

Queer trans couple (20yo & 19yo) need housing in/around Los Angeles area

davekat:

Hey, my partner Gabe tendergender and I are currently in an intensely shitty and abusive living situation and we need out ASAP.

We cannot afford monetary compensation for anyone who can take us in; I can offer to cook and do light housework, but we cannot afford rent or really to spend much on food either

We do not plan to stay much longer than a few weeks; mostly we are asking for a roof over our heads and a safe place to be while we get back on our feet

Our situation is really dire and we would appreciate an immediate an offer as possible; we really can’t stand to be here for more than the next few days

Even if you cannot offer us shelter or don’t live in la I would really really appreciate reblogs or donations;; thank you
