I am currently caring for a relative who needs around the clock support and care I am unable to work as a result and desperately need funds

  • Hi my name is Daniel and I am currently looking after a relative who is suffering from a chronic and severely disabling mental health condition. I have been unable to work as a result as I have to be with her around the clock to support her. Her name is Kelly she is suffering from psychotic depression, PTSD, and Generalised anxiety disorder.  I love her to the very core of my bones and find it so difficult and upsetting to see her this way. Before all of this I have a lot of warm and happy memories of us together. And I cannot understand how it is possible for her to become such a shadow of herself. To make matters worse recently I have not been able to make ends meet I cannot bear to be away from her for long periods of time as I fear something could happen. Prior to all of this I have always worked most recently as a stonemason but I have now had to quit my job to look after Kelly.  I am not used to being in this situation. I am currently looking for funds to support us through this part of the storm and to start up a business where I could work from home in the little time that I do have to support us in the future going further. I have a solid background working with computers and could set up a home business which would completely support us and give us the breathing space that we need to be able to concentrate on Kelly's recovery and not have the worry of poverty looming overhead. I have exhausted every other avenue for sources of funds for myself and am trying to support Kelly in claiming any benefits she is entitled to. We have no other family in the area and currently are two months behind on our rent. We desperately need help and I have no other ideas failing this otherwise I am unsure what is going to happen to us. Thank you for reading. Daniel and Kelly. 

Got an idea like this?
