I am grateful to have had the opportunity to admit my mishandling of responsibilities and funding for The DRIP Mobile Shower. I didn't know how to admit how difficult life had become for me or how to admit to my friends that I wasn't in control of my life. I am grateful to have surrounded myself with kindhearted, hard working people that dedicated themselves to an enormous project with great potential. These people are not accomplices in some greater fraud. In an attempt to defame me, many lies have been fabricated to destroy my credibility. I know who the troll is. I know why they would want to go after me this hard for so long. They clearly still have their own issues to grieve. Beyond physical, intellectual, financial and emotional support, NONE of my family or friends are complicit in my mismanagement of The DRIP as an org.

Money update:

As of March 3, 2024, I owed our shop mate $2,000. I have paid back $1,000 and paid $800 for April and May's rent. I have contacted a CPA that is ready to help de-tangle my financial mishandling. I will continue to fund this for now as a way to keep the trailer safe until it is decided what the next steps are.

TW: mention of self harm and mental crisis

In December of 2022 I attempted to end my life. A month after my attempt, I was able to put a bandaid on my mental health crisis by getting into therapy while numbing myself through self medication. The hotel rooms, Airb&b's and car rental were times that I was unable to be in my home. I left for Alaska in July as an opportunity to decompress. It wasn't until October of 2023 that I was able to find a long term living situation that is stable enough for me to work on myself and to get to a headspace that allows me to be healthy enough to navigate the consequences of my past actions.

I am genuinely sorry for my atrocious behavior that has resulted in me crashing a really beautiful project and my relationships.

It should also be noted that in the end, we attempted to do something bigger than any one of us were capable of doing on our own. We created something to serve People living on the fringes of society. It will take a dedicated group of people to operate the organization and the daily operation of the shower. With the right support, I am hopeful that we are still capable of doing great things.

I will continue to remain off of social media for the time being. You are welcome to contact me with ideas, support, questions or constructive criticism.
