I am sure you hear all kinds of pleas but please hear me out.
Life is not fair and I understand that but starting 10 years ago when I was the victim of domestic violence my life has spiraled to below the bottom of the barrel. At the time it happened my now ex-husband and I were living in a house owned by his mother. After it happened she asked me to move out because the only other option was him at her house. Being too low on self esteem and high in respect I did so, and having no means of support bad choices involving manipulative unsavory people kept me going down.
I live in a friend’s storage on his property. I struggled for a couple years just to afford a laptop to make some money on line. I am fortunate to receive $250 a month in back child support and I do not get any government aid or food stamps. I have no vehicle, no way to get back and forth to a job and there is no public transportation here. I live several miles from town in a rural community.
I am extremely motivated. I am 52 and alone except for my friend and his girlfriend who are kind enough to let me stay here free but that is the most they can do. My ex paying the back child support is 20 years my senior so any month that income could abruptly end without warning so I need to do something ASAP.
Someone gave me a car that has been sitting for a few years after it was in an accident. Someone did the body work to it to make it functional again. What I need is about $1000 to replace the fluids (gas, oil, brake, transmission, etc), the belts and tires (which have dry rotted the years it sat) to get a battery and get the car registered and insured. Hopefully that would also leave some gas money so I can find a job and be able to get back and forth to work.
Living in this storage has helped me work out my issues stemming from years of abuse and neglect as a child. I learned that I don’t deserve to be abused and should not put up with it. I want the next relationship I am in to be out of want and not need. This time here has been good for me in many ways but I am ready to move on.
Please help me to help myself.
