In serious need of financial help


Hello, I’m the moderator of this blog. This isn’t like me to ask, but I am in serious need of financial help.

I’m struggling as an adult with Asperger’s Syndrome, and after trying for almost an entire year to secure a steady income, it hasn’t been very successful. (I’m still looking, but so far, no luck yet.) Thankfully, I’m living with my parents, but I still have to pay for food, bills and student loans, and my income is running low because of that. My health coverage is also expired, which means I’d have to pay for therapy out of pocket, and I’m unable to afford that. My initial goal is to raise up to $2,000 in order to keep me stable; if anybody could make a donation to my PayPal (even if its $1), that would mean a lot to me.

It’s been a while since I’ve updated, so of course, so only a small number donations have generated on my PayPal. I sort of felt like it would be annoying to keep posting about it every day, so I chose to space it out. So far, I have accumulated $976.48 since I’ve created my PayPal donations page, so I thank all those who have chipped in…

With that said, I’ve hit yet another setback: while my 2010 MacBook Pro is still functional, it has run into some technical problems. However, when I brought it in for repairs, they said that the model is “vintage”, and they would not be able to fix the laptop itself without performing separate repairs for the keyboard and hard drive for a few hundred dollars each. It was either this option or buy an entirely new MacBook.

I’ve chosen option B, but on top of all my other expenses, I am unable to afford a MacBook laptop. I know that I’d like a 2012-2015 model, so that I don’t have to pay extra for adapters and such. I have backed up all of my files on this MacBook that I am using now, but this is what I have for everyday use. It would be a great help if you could send a donation on my PayPal, or spread the word around. (Even a dollar helps!)
