In response to your klaroline question: Klaroline hasn't really started. The build up is still happening, it's the interaction they've had so far. Also, Plec said that seeing Caroline almost die is what sparked his fascination towards her. So you're right in saying it didn't start until her bday.
For the last few months my family has been struggling and progressively getting into a deeper and deeper fiscal hole. Between having to take care of a sick uncle and my sister having issues, my mom and my stepdad have been stretched thin. So I’ve been having to help there as well. My sister has recently been in and out of mental facilities to get help, which is good for her, but putting a strain on the family.
That was all before I had my -own- breakdown or sorts and had to spend 17 hours in the emergency room. I’ve tried to get state assistance, for anything. Any small bit would help. But my household barely makes too much for state help, but barely enough to cover everything. So we fall behind. And they denied us. No medical insurance. No anything.
The bills keep piling up.
Because of my own anxiety and mood disorder, I’ve had to drop out of school. I couldn’t focus on it, even if I was getting money from it. My stepdad is doing what he can to get a job and they are scarce, everyone knows this. My mom has been the only one working.
My sister recently was kicked out of the safe house she was staying because of her own problems, so my mother had to take FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) and between running everyone to appointments and therapy, we’ve fallen so far behind that we cannot make rent on the first and our power is due to be turned off by Monday as well as our internet. And we barely have enough gas to even make sure my sister gets to school anymore.
Public transportation would be great, if we actually had any near.
Bottom line is, I could give a shit less about keeping internet access, but we -need- power and we need a roof over our heads. Food, we could go a few days without anyway. That’s not my concern.
My mother starts work back on Monday and might not have enough gas to even get there. My stepdad gets 400 dollars on the first but that’s not even close to enough to pay for the rent, power, and upcoming registration for the only vehicle we have.
We are essentially screwed and are already about to pawn all of our things in the -hope- it brings enough to at least cover rent. Chances are, it will not. We already do not have much to our names.
I have no idea how it got so bad so fast, but it did. And now we need help. Our own families won’t even bother to help, so I am turning to mine.
I haven’t been participating in fandom the past couple months because of these things and I most certainly won’t be able to if I am on the streets with my family and without power.
I don’t have anything to offer back for any help anyone gives. I wish I did. I don’t have many talents. I don’t have that great of a blog. But I am hoping that someone, somewhere on this site, will be willing to help me and my mom, stepdad, uncle, and sister, keep the power on.
-ANYTHING- at this point will help and I feel horrible that I have to even ask. If I could get a job right now and pay for it all, I would. If there was anything I could possibly do -that is legal- now, and here, I’d be doing it so we don’t end up homeless.
All I -can- do is wait until it all goes off. And ask you for help.
I have a paypal. I don’t know how it works really.
I think [ this ] is the proper link to donate money? If someone knows anything about receiving donations there and could help me, that’d be neat. I also put the button thing on my page.
Any help matters. If you can’t give a dollar, give a reblog. I’m legitimately desperate and I feel pathetic even asking. So I’m sorry to fill your dash with this post if you could care less. I will be online for the remainder of the time I can.
Thanks to anyone who has taken the time to actually read this.
