Hi, sorry I'm having to write this to you but I'm looking for your help.
The reason I need your help; I'm disabled with Mild Autism, Bipolar 2. I got to the stage where I’d had enough of fighting, not understanding what was wrong with me until I was diagnosed very recently (2014) because I tried to end it all in 2013 waking up in a hospital bed thankfully failing.
So here's my plan; I’d like to buy a run down property with some land in the Scottish Highlands/Islands and do it up (the house will be eco friendly wind, solar power etc). I’ll also be building a bee farm (They’ll be British bee’s thought to be extinct in the 1900’s) primarily to save the bee’s, make honey, a basic living and to help other mental health sufferers. I’ll buy a caravan to live in, while doing up the property. This will take a few years as I’ll be on a very tight budget. When the house becomes habitable, I’ll move out of the caravan and open it up people that help me to come visit (maybe throw in some bee keeping lessons too?). I also want to use the caravan(s) for people who have mental health issues and need a holiday to escape for a bit. They’ll be able to do some bee keeping, relax with someone who understands and cares!
So I’m very sorry I’m here asking for your support, but I can’t find any other options open to me.
Thank you for reading and THANK YOU for your support it truly means the world to me! Love to you!
