I’m Evelyn, she/her. I’m Bipolar and I have IBD, so need a fuckton of expensive medicine to not either a) not have intestinal ulcers or b) not have a hypomanic episode and fuck my life up. So, this is likely a pipe-dream, but with virtual doctors visits and chain pharmacies, maybe it isn’t.

I’d love to travel anywhere that I won’t definitely be murdered in, which is, like, a whole six places. Love that for us.

I will happily fling myself at any not-creepy person who plays VtM, because seriously, where the fuck are the players?

I really love food. This is all just a pretense for me to wife myself up a handsome cook. With muscles. I’m a muscle baby. /s

Welcome! How much does your medicine cost? Sounds like 'vanlife' might be the most realistic option, depending on where you want to go and what you want to do. Any specific destinations in mind?

All together, it’s about $900 a month, $500 after GoodRX. I’ll be changing meds soon, so it should go down to about $500-600 a month, $200-300 after coupons.

Unfortunately, I can’t drive because of my meds (it slows my reaction time too much for comfort), so IDK. I’ve thought about maybe squatting somewhere like NYC, which I’ve heard has more favorable laws than other places, and traveling out from Amtracks. In terms of making money to afford my meds, I’ll probably do cam “modeling,” because it can be pretty lucrative, and it’s really the only feasible option. If some miracle happens and we ever actually get a passable healthcare system, I’ll cry for days, but that’s wishful thinking, so.

If I could go anywhere, I’d probably go to Bisbee. My dad used to be transient during the 90s/early 2000s, because poverty and patterns of generational abuse by his uncle/my great uncle, haha why am I telling you this, and he’s said that Bisbee was the best place he went to. We’re very close, and I’m curious to see it, even though it’s probably a gentrified spa town now. Other than that, anywhere, really.

Edit: To clarify, I'm not saying that everyone transient is because of abuse, but it definitely is a factor for a lot of people. I'm a Libra, so I want to be as annoyingly pacifying as I can be, but also blanketing the label of 'victim' on people would be shit, and I don't want to be see as doing that.

I wondered from the title if you meant you wanted to escape this life. That would be a lot to unpack on here.

If you are on high dollar meds then there is a good chance you are eligible for SSI --- SSDI if you have every worked a W2. To that point, back east, the meds are a slam dunk to be comp'd by the state through the dole. Concur with @Matt Derrick that vanlife might be the way to roll although as a freight hopper I love the trains. Dunno as I do not know you or how u maintain. Regardless, cast as much caution to the wind as you can and welcome aboard!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
