I am very sorry to disturb you like this, but I am in a very stressful and dire situation so, please, bear with me and my boring ranting.
As you know, I am currently fighting a very tough battle due to the lack of very much needed necessary funds. I am, as you also know, evicted from my premises, and I am now struggling - literally day and night - to keep at least some remnants of my archives for future use in scientific projects outside of the Karolinska Institute, for formal letters, lectures, and so forth. The last weeks I have already thrown away approx. 12 m3 of these archives as well as other items of great value, both practically and economically. Trust me, it hurts to slaugther one's own efforts and others hopes. The latter deserve better.
I am now facing the end station in just 2 months. I am therefore trying to rapidly collect economic support, allowing me to rent a Shurgard storage room, outside of the Stockholm City area (to keep the cost down). Depending on the final size, it will still cost somewhere between 15,840 Swedish kronor/year (=1,860 USD/year) and 26,730 Swedish kronor/year (=3,139 USD/year). (Added to it will be the single cost for moving the various items to the storage room, maybe an additional 500-700 USD.) (If I can not get hold of the necessary support, then almost everything must go; my wife and I do not have any room capacity back home for such storage.)
My blunt, rude, unpolished question therefore is: can you, please, help me by covering the rental cost? If you can, please, then do not wait to act; time is now running fast.
With my very best regards
