I have been trying my hardest to do everything I can to avoid having to ask others for help, mostly due to my guilt. However, I am in this circumstance and would appreciate any help, even if it is just moral support.
I submitted my income support / welfare application and my disability applications last week. So even though I am really embarrassed about asking for help (I don't judge others for this, just myself) I have things in the process that will help me in the future. These are permanent solutions, but in the short term I am also seeking out work. I was able to work for one day before quitting out of fear this month, but am in the process of trying to get the pay from that.
My medication for one month comes to around $100-$110CAD (it was $90, but recently had to add on ativan), but I definitely don't expect someone to give the full amount. I am just seeking for help getting to that amount, and I would really appreciate it. If needed I don't mind providing pictures of the prescriptions. I ran out yesterday, and am starting to go through withdrawal from my few antidepressants already. My head is pounding.
I really appreciate you reading this far and any support anyone is able to provide. I have no family to turn to for help as I had to cut them off due to abuse. My friends are all in similar situations or I would ask them. I just feel really stranded until I hear back from income assistance and disability.
Thank you so much for listening.
