Hi, can anyone give me advice on whether it's allowed to share a go fund me page here on the community?
I have two angel babies who were born asleep a few years ago and I struggle on a daily basis even just to get out of bed. I can't work now due to my mental health and I just manage to get from payday to payday on what I get from ESA.
I have never been able to get the money to pay for my two sons' headstone and this fills me with guilt every time I visit them. It feels like I'm failing them all over again.
I don't have anyone left to help. My mum passed away in 2010 when I was 22 and the family fell apart after that. No one speaks much anymore and any who do just gossip about and belittle each other. I've tried telling family members and friends how bad my mental health is but all I get is "we all have issues, man up." I've given up trying now, what's the point?
Anyway, I mentioned setting up a go fund me in order to help raise funds for my babies' headstone and I was ridiculed. Told me I should be ashamed of myself for considering asking other people to pay for my problems. There's so many people on my social media who are family members and I'm now scared and ashamed to share my fundraiser in a place where anyone knows me because I know the unnecessary backlash I will receive from a lot of people.
I don't know what to do. I've tried sharing on a few pages specifically set up for sharing fundraisers but nothing has come of it so far and it quickly gets lost among all the other posts. A lot of the posts are people in America so maybe the problem is that my go fund me page isn't in America so people can't help, I'm not sure.
Anyway, I'd be grateful if anyone could give me some advice on whether I can share a link here or even somewhere I can share it that isn't Facebook etc.
Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this.
