Hi, I'm John.
I lived a very ordinary life up until a few years ago, I was a student, I was with friends and I was very much having fun. Sadly in my early twenties I developed a serious neurological disability that had an immediate effect on my ability to go about my day to day life.
I won't disguise the fact that these changes drove me off the rails completely. I made a series of financial errors driven by a deep depression and anxiety that had manifested themselves. I was an idiot, plain and simple.
A few years on I'm back on track, I can see my life and where I want to go. I'd like to begin pursuing my dreams again. Unfortunately I'm saddled by the repercussions of my previous mistakes. My ability to progress is hampered significantly by those errors I made in what I view as my dark years.
I have a relatively significant debt and due to my the overall effect in these I'm in a position where I am having to keep adding to that debt or shifting it around to cover those ongoing costs.
I'd like the opportunity to have a bit of a reset on this, I acknowledge that this is a situation of my own engineering and I'm incredibly annoyed at myself that it has. But I can't see any way past this at the moment without a sum of money reaching me.
I know that this is quite a benign story compared to many and I know that there are any number of other, great, causes out there. It's up to you.
