Sorry for keep shamelessly plugging my crowd funder

Sorry for keep shamelessly plugging my crowd funder, I’m not very good at promoting myself, and I’m embarrassed that I am asking strangers to donate to me. Especially for something that could very well fail, and because there have been so many people on the internet who have taken advantage of good people as a con artist.

I don’t think I am ever going to get used to asking for money, since I am someone who tries to be as independent as possible, and I am scared that I will get on everybody’s nerves, by keeping putting up the link.

Thank you for reading.

My Crowdfunder for my Mental Health Resource Hub Idea.

Hi, I am perfectlyfadeddelusions, I have a blog I have been writing on, on and off for a while now. I am currently living with my parents due to having mental health problems, severe anxiety, agoraphobia, severe depression; and I have had a physical nervous breakdown seven years ago.

I want to made this site for the core reason that I think finding out about mental illnesses, your rights, and contacts can be a very long struggle. All the sites and charities don’t list many places that isn’t theirs, and most of them are not directly near where you live. Another reason is because, I want to help people concerning benefits, help when sanctioned such as foodbanks and other emergency help, as well as providing a connection and place for people to talk about their problems.

Due to my own experience with mental health, knowing how exhausting it can be hunting for information about services, and charities, especially for those who have mental health and their family members. As it can make you feel as though it is a hard time getting the support you need, where you feel you are not ill enough to get the assistance.

I would like to raise some money for a new computer, at the moment I have a very old laptop I am working from, which is 7 years old and very slow and is incapable of doing more than one or two tasks. I would like to use the new computer so I can work from home as a researcher, as well as make website like a hub for resources for mental health problems. In addition to making a safe place where people write about their conditions, get advice, and be in an understanding community.

I also want make handmade cards, draw art and pictures for my handmade cards, make podcasts, and maybe YouTube videos with my friend and guests from YouTube and charities and so on. As well as make videos about the history of mental health and how people with mental illness are treated around the world so we can talk about the topic.

I hope that once my local mental health team has accessed me, I will be able to get a benefit, which will provide some money to pay a support worker to go places with me, so I am able to travel around.

I know it is a lot of money to ask for, and I that I could do this for nothing or very little. On the contrary, this is a long-term project, which I am planning to take further, and move into my own community working in conjunction with those with mental health in the company of love and support.

The money will be used to buy an iMac, printer, and software to use to write scripts, make inserts for cards, and for my research on mental health. And to make animations (though not very), to use in videos to make more fun.

I also plan to sell cards, and other handmade gifts to raise money for my project, as well as for charities. I will sell some cards on EBay, and the money paid will go to different mental health charities, from all different countries, as well as the UK. When selling on Etsy, the money will go straight into projects, and for papers, information, thesis, academic papers behind pay walls. I would also like to pay the contributors back, as I feel this would be an appropriate thing to do, because I want to be as transparent and thankful as possible.

Eventually if this project is successful, I am hoping to use the money I get from cards, and other will be used to rent a place in my area, where people can come and talk, make friends, and find useful support in finding employment. To expand the help on the website, have and training staff in the local job centre or employment agencies as to how to communicate with people with mental health. Be a representative for clients, communicating with other charities in research and making sure people with mental health problems are able to live their lives as best as they can.

What is a mental health problem?

Welcome to this guide exploring why it can be hard to open up about mental health problems. Click on the play button above to see why we’re talking about this.

When people say mental health, they are talking about how people think and feel, and how they are coping with things happening in their life. It’s completely normal to feel sad, angry or worried from time to time. But when those feelings won’t go away and they start to really affect day-to-day life, that is when there can be a problem.

Many people with a mental health problem find it hard to talk about it. This guide looks at why that is and what you can do if you feel this is something that is affecting you.

Thunderclap For #helpthemworkforthemselves

perfectlyfadeddelusions

A good person know as Sevvie Rose is doing a thunderclap for her lobbying idea for helping men work for themselves, which is aimed at helping homeless men work, take part in society, and feel better about themselves.

President Trump requested a $1 Trillion Dollar infrastructure bill be drafted by Congress, but I do not trust Representatives to speak for those who do not make enough money to speak for themselves; it is up to us to make it heard by our Congress and Representatives that putting our unskilled and unemployed labourers and homeless men back to work will rebuild our country and further improve our economy, as well as save the lives of thousands of people in every major city in this country.

These men don’t need a hand-out, they need a hand-up, and this is the precise moment in which we can give it to them. After all…

We live in a world that teaches us to be strong at all costs. The reality for many is that to be able to ‘stay strong’, means to repress their feelings.

This Is Why The Girl That’s Always Smiling Feels Miserable Inside

perfectlyfadeddelusions

The girls with the widest smiles have the deepest cracks in their hearts.

This article speaks to me, because I am always being strong and caring for others before myself. Though I think in my case it is a family trait, my mum looked after me, my nan, and my dad who who had 2 nervous breakdowns. My nan looked after my cousin, whose mum (my mum’s sister) was a bitch, still is really.

Meanwhile I just protect everyone close to me, from my parents, to my friends. I know this makes my mental health worse, but I would rather everyone else was okay.

I’ve been like it my whole life, I don’t know whether that could ever change for me, I like caring for people, because my problems are not really that important. Though my emotional Wellbeing Group is meant to be trying to get me in touch with…

The Sedated Society: the Real Story of our Prescribing Epidemic – Mad In America

perfectlyfadeddelusions

Industry-backed diagnostic inflation and lax regulation of medicines are the drivers in an epidemic of antidepressant prescriptions.

Interesting, because there are a lot of people on YouTube, Tumblr, etc who claim to have depression. So if the bar is set so low, then people like them can basically get the treatment that other people desperatelyneed, and fall through the cracks.

Interesting post.

Psychosis for Mental Health? – Mad In America

perfectlyfadeddelusions

What if we took individuals who are experiencing emotional crises called ‘psychosis’ and offered them safe spaces of respite?

I’m not sure if I agree with this, this is a very complicated subject, and one I do not feel very qualified to comment on.

But I do know my next door neighbor smokes weed, and has extreme temper meltdowns, where me and my mum fear he will hurt his own mum. MY step brother who abused me also smoked weed, he had anger issues also, but this actually made him worse.

That’s just my experience of what drugs do, but still please still read the article, and see what you think.
