Anxiety & depression have caused a lot of debt

Anxiety & depression have caused a lot of debt

My anxiety and depression have got in the way of work and enjoying life. Please, please help me pay back my debt!

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

Hello, my name is Harriet - nice to meet you :)

On paper, I may seem like a pretty "normal" person - I'm a modern languages graduate from the University of Portsmouth (I speak French & Spanish), I have a great network of friends and family and I love shopping, socialising (to some extent...!) and a good Netflix binge in my spare time. But things aren't always as they seem...

In July 2016 I was fired from my job for taking too much time off due to my depression and crippling anxiety. I fought this decision with the company's head of HR - I fight I managed to win. I received a small amount of compensation (for legal reasons, I can't share the name of the company or the amount I received), which was spent on the necessities of life (food, bills, transportation, etc.), counselling sessions and consolidating debt. As you can imagine, this compensation quickly dwindled. 

Almost a year later, I am still unemployed - I have had several interviews over the past few months but, alas, have not been successful. Determined not to give up though, I apply for jobs every day. 

The point of this Crowdfund is to kindly ask my fellow man for financial support - I have a lot of outgoings and some debt to pay back (however, from the amount I am asking for, it isn't an extortionate amount of debt!). I just really, really need to depend on the kindness of strangers (as Blanche DuBois said) so I have one less thing on my mind. 

If anyone you know or you yourself has suffered from anxiety and depression, you know how difficult it is to do anything "normal" - it's so hard to get out of bed, to leave the house and you merely just exist. Recently, I am a lot stronger than I have been and I am so determined to not let my illness beat me. 

If you can spare a few £s, a few $s, or a few €s to help me on my way to conquer my own world - I would be eternally grateful.
