This is a craigslist ad that I posted just now trying to change my life around:
I am a creative person (musician, artist, composer, actor, writer, inventor, etc.) with bipolar disorder and I also consider myself an HSP or a “highly sensitive person” as the psychological book The Highly Sensitive Person describes it. I am unable to work at a normal job because of many factors but I do feel that I have many positives to offer the world. The problem is that I am unable to concentrate on doing anything that I actually have a talent for when I am constantly worrying about having the basics in life. What makes it even worse is that if I try to get a simple job, a part-time job, a corporate job, or any regular job just to try to make ends meet it causes me so much anguish that I am unable to do anything besides the job. I am unable to concentrate at all outside of work and I get so stressed that I am so tired when I get off work that all I can do is go to sleep. All of this is explained in Jungian psychology or if you read about someone with bipolar disorder. If you read the book called The Highly Sensitive Person it says that having a job that any other regular person could do causes a person like me to have what is equivalent to post traumatic stress disorder just by having the job. Anyway, after explaining all that, I pretty much am asking if someone can help me to get a me a place to live that I own that I know I can stay there forever and the deed is in my name so I won’t have to worry about the basic necessities of life anymore. That is truly the only way that I can become a contributing member of society with my sets of positive and negative temperaments. If anyone can lead me in a direction to make this happen, actually give me a place to live even if I have to fix it up, maybe a piece of land even if I have to build my own house by hand, or even help me to start some sort of organization that will help people like me to own their own place for free, then I would be very happy, excited, and appreciative beyond belief. You can contact me via the anonymous email link at the top as to keep people from spamming me or call me on my business phone which I am writing phonetically so that no one can spam me at sicks-sevin-ate too-sevin-ate nein-too-sicks-too.
