Disabled Young Adult Seeking Help!
I’m 23, disabled, homeless, and I desperately need help to pay for my medication that is running out this week.My name’s Shayne (Shay). I’m trans*/non-binary, disabled, have zero income/financial support, a service animal, and I have no place to live right now.
I suffer from a number of disorders and syndromes including:
• Ehler-danlos syndrome
• cold urticaria
• adrenal insufficiency
• Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
• postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome
• poly cystic ovarian syndrome
• neuropathy nos
• major depressive disorder
I’m largely immobile and cannot work. Neither one of my biological family’s homes are a safe place for me to go. This is for a multitude of reasons.
I was promised to receive my share of an apartment deposit (total was $800) from my ex. Along with the payment for a parking ticket ($100) on my father’s car that they had gotten.
I was kind enough to understand financial stress and allow spread out payments.
When I had found out that they had been lying/cheating all 2.3 years we’d been together, they decided that “I didn’t deserve it anymore.” In addition to losing that money, I lost them and their family as my only support system.
I have no money apart from some pocket change. I’m currently living in a motel paid for by Salvation Army until Tuesday morning, and after that my service cat and I only have my car to live in.
Being in Wisconsin and sleeping in my car is dangerous because of the cold. Worse yet, something in my car is misfiring, meaning that until I can get it fixed with an electrical tuneup ($300 estimated), it’s practically useless and even more dangerous to live in.
To give you an idea of my expenses: my anxiety meds cost $1 flat through DHS, which is a blessing, but my pain medication is extremely important for me to have and runs around $89. My total cost of medications per month is around $175 and total cost of living is about $300, not including rent or personal items.
I’m asking Tumblr for help because I don’t know what to do until my disability determination is made, and that could take a very long time.
I thankfully have food stamps, but I need to find a way to keep paying for a place to stay that’s heated and safe, and most importantly, my medication. These past months have been extremely difficult and I need help.
I have a few friends from college willing to take my service animal and I in, but this would require my car fixed and all medications sorted out as they live across the country.
I’m willing to show my medical record, prove of income, anything to prove that this is genuine.

As some one who lives in Wisconsin a car is no place to live in this freezing piece of land. I am definitely signal boosting this and hoping this person gets the help and support they need.
I am signal boosting this, but I am also wondering how Shay has a service animal and zero income? Shay, do you not receive SSI or SSD or other disability income? In Oregon (where I am) proof of SSI is required for all manner of services and programs for disabled people (often including assistance animals). Not all companion animals, of course—that just needs a doctor’s letter saying you suffer loneliness and/or depression, and an animal would improve your condition—but service animals, yes.
Do you need help getting or applying for SSI or SSD? I know every state has different local, municipal, and county procedures for various programs, but SSI & SSD are federal. Every state I’ve lived in has had the same process… Shay are you awaiting retroactive award? I’m disabled from birth, so I was around 2 when SSI was awarded, but I know for friends who become disabled as adults it can take two+ years for disbursement. Is there anything else I—or we—might do to help you (because I’m trying to get equipment & meds that aren’t covered right now too, I can’t support financially)?
When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.

"Take cover, Arizona!"
(Why I’m pro anti-gay establishments)
Anyone who knows me knows I’m gay. Anyone who doesn’t know me may know I’m gay by the way I dress or wear my hair. Some of the latter may ask about my sexuality & I can choose to answer how I like. I can even deny the fact that I am gay.
One of the scariest things about being gay for me (in fact the only scary thing) is not knowing who to trust or befriend. It’s not even a matter of being physically hurt, but rather a “shit, I liked that person & now I find out that they don’t think I have a right to get married & so I can’t be friends with this ignorant scumbag.” It’s really annoying and makes me hesitate to actually start friendships or even be nice to people.
Which brings me to my point. I am more than thrilled that there are now people willing to “come out” of the asshole closet (which also must be a portal to the 1950s). Seeing a “we have the right to refuse service” sign in Arizona (or any of these lovely states with their new prehistoric law) tells me that 1. Here is your enemy 2. Don’t spend your money here 3. If a gay hate crime occurs strike here
So, thank you, Arizona. Thank you all states and religious homophobes for telling us exactly where you are and what you think of us.
The other day I had a really good idea for a story:
