Any help I can receive would be so much appreciated. I have a little over 3 more weeks left where I'm staying and it took a few days for me to even build up the courage to post this on here. Most of you know me as a happy person and it's hard for me to be known as anything else to the wonderful group of people that you are.
You are really the only friends I have and I have nowhere else to turn. I believe this could change my life if I can get enough raised. There are so many others out there with so much worse going on so don't make this your first choice.
This is hard for me because I've never really asked for money and if I ever did I always paid it back. Plus the depressed side of me tells me I don't deserve this but I want to get better.
If I'm able to raise enough to get out that way I will definitely keep you updated. The mountains have called to me for a very long time and my mind and body need this more than anything right now. Thank you for taking the time to even read this and here's the link if you want to know more:

I'm a bit tight this month, but I'll see what I can do in April.
Stay strong, depression is tough. Get enough money for a bus ticket, pack a single bag with 2 sets of interview clothes, 4 sets of climate appropriate casual clothes. In the 3 weeks you have left, decide where you are going. Colorado has mountains, California has mountains, most states have mountains lol . Just make that decision, it might be hard, but you need to do it so you can actually move forward with a new life. Then once you do that, you can explore destinations within that state/location, and find a cheap place to stay, maybe a hostel. Check out local job boards and such. But you need to figure out where you are going first! DO IT!

Hmm.... take this for what it is lol. If I were in your position, knowing that I was going to be living out of my car, and that there was very little hope of friends or family being able or willing to help improve my position. I would accept it. It is what it is.
Now, You happen to live in America, so:
We have food stamps - get them.
We have welfare - Use it.
There are food banks - find them.
There are campgrounds, parks, or other locations that you can cook food at. Some supermarkets have microwaves available.
There are inexpensive cooler/refrigerator units that are built for cars.
Get a Gym membership for like $20-$30 a month, possibly less, and use their showers.
Wal-Marts generally allow overnight parking. Its well lit, patrolled and videotaped.
Go where you want. Work odd jobs, move on. See the country.
Or go somewhere you want to be, sign up for all the benefits you can, food stamps to buy food, welfare to pay bills, buy gas and clothes. Sign up for Section 8 housing. The line is long, but it doesn't hurt to get in it. If you don't end up needing it, all the better. Apply for jobs, sign up at temp agencies. If you need an address, get one at a mailbox store. Some give physical addresses.
Move to where you can breath. Start fresh. Start working, keep your head up, and change your world! But never stop looking forward! The past is dead, the present is dying, the future is alive.
Shrug. Its going to be different. Its going to be difficult. Its probably going to be scary at times. But I think you will be just fine.
Edit: Found this http://carliving.info/101.htm
Its a good read I think. He doesn't like the idea of Gym membership, but hes talking about it costing $55 a week. That's insane lol. Mine is $29.99 a month. shrug, take it for what its worth

You are never alone! I had my own bouts with depression when i was 19 - 20 and i understand the difficulty of the people around you not being able to get what it is you are going through.
The fact you have chosen to get help is huge, that already tells me that you know there is an issue and what is more that you would like to fix it.
Sorry i don't check the forums enough or have the time to write more right now (at work) but you need to know that you do have people that care.

The only thing that scares me is my car breaking down during the 14 hour trip, definitely need an oil change before but my car has been wonderful so far during past road trips. Any money I receive now will help immensely, the people who have donated so far they were huge amounts but it doesn't need to be. $5 will help put gas in my car or food in my tummy. Any little bit will help. And any little bit will be so much appreciated.
It's definitely great knowing I'm part of a wonderful community who have come together as a family who care. Someday I'll be back to play games with you guys when I'm back to living a better life but I'll definitely be spending more time hiking the mountains once I've set myself up better.
I'll probably be leaving next week Tuesday. Thank you all for everything and please take care because your life matters.

Oh Dragon, my heart goes with you. I know depression well. He's been a constant, if unwelcome companion for the last 4 decades of my life. i bookmarked your gofundme page, and will chip in what I can, when I can. I agree with Shaft, and think you're making the right decision in getting out of where you are now. A change of scenery might be exactly what you need, and the Rockies are truly stunning.
Safe travels my friend, and remember; depression is a liar. I constantly have to remind myself of that.
