I have no money left for general living costs. I need to raise $1590* for important payments this week.
*updated costs, see links below
I have a physical disability that completely confines to me to my bed, which means I have to pay people to help me with anything that requires any amount of physical strength or leaving the bed at all. There were some unexpectedly high home care/assistance and food costs in the past week, so now I don’t have any money left except for amounts set aside for legal costs etc. I need some help.
The amount that I need to raise for rent, home care, transport, and groceries etc. this week is $1590 and I’ve listed the specific payments on this linked post (updated cost explained here). Getting assistance is particularly important this week because a lot of it is specifically to help me with trying to get to my neurologist’s appointment on 21st July. I have had no consultations for 8 months because of a bad financial situation and my condition is rapidly getting worse. I’m terrified about what this will mean for me if I continue to have no access to specialist medical care.
I need to raise most of the $1590 by the end of today (5PM Monday AEST or 3AM Monday EST), so that I can then focus on raising money for bond and any potential upfront transport costs. I know this is a large amount of money and there’s not a lot of time. I do genuinely need to pay these things because I’m dependent on other people’s assistance and I’m almost completely isolated from unpaid support. Any amount would help, donations of $5 or $1 all add up and will really help me.
These are the donations options if you’re able to donate. Thanks everyone for your support.

*****ETA 19th Jul.: Thank you to everyone who has donated to me. I’ve received $592 so far. I need to raise the remaining $988 as soon as possible.*****
