Click here to support Azalea's Emancipation Fund
Hi, my name is Azalea and I am a mentally ill, pansexual, nonbinary minor living in Iowa, USA. I am currently a dual-enrolled student as a senior in high school and a second year in my local community college. I am looking to raise money to emancipate myself from my mother and her husband, as my home with them is not safe, nor is it beneficial to my mental health. I am very slowly overcoming my mental illness and its impact on my life, and I need help to do so.
I very recently was hospitalized due to a suicide attempt, and I am home now, although the word “home” entails safety, whereas my “home” and those in it allocate me no safety. I need money to support myself as, when I am emancipated, I will be on my own entirely. That means I will have to pay for my own medications (which are wildly expensive) and my own food and my own shelter…among other things. I would be beyond grateful for a chance to remove myself from the toxicity that is my current housing and guardianship arrangement.
Even if you can’t donate, it would help to just reblog this link. Thank you so much for your time.
