I am Rituparna, a 23 yo who has been working to support myself while completing my studies. I have zero support from any of my family members. I have to urgently leave the place I am staying at. I have a month. Two months is pushing it. But I am hopeful.
I have Borderline Personality Disorder which has been difficult in ways more than one. While working I have been able to take professional help for it, including therapy and psychiatric help in the form of medicines. However, with my limited income, treatment as well as saving enough to move into a place is next to impossible. It will be choosing between one or the other.
For example, I have spent Rs 19000 on 11 therapy sessions and 6 sessions with my doctor, over 6 weeks. And my medicines cost about Rs 3000 a month.
With what I'm earning currently, sustaining mental health care along with collecting enough for the 3 month upfront rent payment for houses is very difficult. Anyone who has house-hunted knows that. It has also been very difficult to work with my condition, hence I cannot possibly max out my working brain to earn large figures as a freelancer. I am simply not healthy enough.
While this is embarrassing, I am doing everything I can to keep myself alive, be safe, and build a future. I am hoping you can come forward to help in any way possible. Every rupee counts and I will send you a hand-drawn post-card if you like! Or help you in the future any which way I can. I will be uploading receipts and proof of how the money is getting spent.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story details. Please help me out here. I will be very grateful.
