Daisies and Bruises Funded For Another Year

DaisiesandBruisesdotcomHello lovely readers!

The other day I posted about being afraid that I couldn’t afford to keep Daisies and Bruises afloat. Within minutes of posting it, a few friends texted me asking what I needed, and in a whirlwind of guilt I took the post down.

I couldn’t, however, undo the fact that my post had been sent to everyone subscribed to this blog. Subscribers still read about how I couldn’t stop crying and couldn’t afford to keep the site up on my own, and saw my “Donate” button.

A few exceptionally kind individuals donated some money to Daisies and Bruises, enough to keep us funded for another year. I relieved beyond words.

We’re safe. The world CAN be safe.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated and to everyone who is reading along. I’ll write a proper post in the coming days.

Love Erin

P.S. The donation button resides in my sidebar, as it has for a few months. Any donations are always appreciated! I need to either start running ads or turn this into a kickstarter thing or something. I feel so ashamed and unworthy to rely on others, even sometimes. This has to change for me to live a healthier life. :/

    Don’t feel a BIT guilty/bad for asking for a little bit of help. You really do give back SO MUCH!! I actually felt guilty because I could not squeeze out anything extra to help & you have helped me so much!! Hugs to you….

    Aw Erin, you should never feel like you’re burdening people. If people wanna fund the site it’s because without it we won’t be able to see how you’re doing and I’m sure I can speak on everybodys behalf and say that we feel like your friends. This blog maintains our relationship we have to you, and anyone would be sad to see it go :) don’t worry

    Hi Erin,

    I’ve only just started following your blog but I’m finding it really insightful.

    I’m glad you’ve managed to get funding to keep posting.

    I’ve started writing a diary style blog about my own struggles with depression and I’m finding it really therapeutic.

    Thanks for the inspiration,

    I am very happy for you that you received the donations you needed to keep doing this useful service that also sustains YOU. I am in the awkward position of wanting to share with you that I also am looking for donations to publish my book which is what I do instead of a blog. I wrote a little comic book/graphic novel. Have you ever read Persepolis? It’s about the Revolution in Iran told from a child’s perspective. It’s all illustrated in black and white. It’s a famous book. I read that and realized my book was good. My book is about the mental health system told from my inner child. It’s called Little Porcupine Goes to the Psyche Ward. I want you to take a look at it because maybe you know other people who could help me with this project?? Here’s where you can see parts of it. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/little-porcupine-goes-to-the-psyche-ward–2/x/9701346 I explain a lot more at this listing. It all started when Little Porcupine refused the lithium offered, and later chose instead, Prozac. The Prozac gave Little Porcupine systemic lupus erythemetosus. And it only got worse from there. I think a person like YOU would find my book very interesting.
