Hi.. I’d like to start off by saying my name is Gabrielle McElwee. I have a beautiful 2 year old daughter. We live with my aunt since July 2019. My stepdad recently just passed away in January. We were living with my mother and stepdad in Tennessee at the time, but we were all evicted because of his death and had to leave within a week. We stayed hotel to hotel for about 3-4 months till my cousin let us stay with him and his friends.. we couldn’t find a place my mom had lost her job a few weeks after her husband died but she had a backup job. Her sister wanted us to move back home to New Orleans so we did in July. I recently just quit my secretary job because my boss wasn’t being understanding and we were not getting along. He would get mad at the littlest things. I’ve been applying to jobs. I’ve been trying to save up money, but when you have to put food in the house and buy diapers, help pay bills… you don’t really have any money anymore. I do have $1,500 saved hopefully I don’t have to touch it. I feel bad always asking my mother for rides or grandfather. I’ve been looking at cars and nothing drivable is in that price range. I feel so so close to getting a car it’s at the tip of my fingers but soon I know I will have to spend money on more diapers soon and other things. Specially with Christmas coming up. I’m too scared to start a go fund me because I feel like friends or family would tell me not to do this but I just feel like I have no other choice.. everyone goes through something I understand that.. I guess when your a young adult you just wonder when will it all end and it gets better.. my karma is if I get too happy about anything something bad will happen and I believe that 110%.. i feel like a horrible person for even trying to ask someone for help. I know I have a good heart I think of others before myself, and I help other people before myself.. but I always get screwed over. So recently I’ve put my foot down. But also the money wouldn’t just go to me for a car. It will also be going to my wonderful mother. When my stepdad died it was unexpected and she had no life insurance her car is starting to mess up and she just got it.. my aunt would also like us to move out before Christmas and I would like that too. So yeah the money would be going towards a car for myself and money towards a house for my mom and sisters and my daughter and me. I’m asking for no judgment. :( I’m not sure what else I need to say. My story should be in a book.. it’s crazy. Probably be a best seller. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME TO GET MY PHONE NUMBER TO TALK OR ETC..
