Hello. I recently lost my temporary job (my assignment ended) and I have been unsuccessful in finding a new one. I have until August 10th, 2020 to find a new job or my parents will kick me out (I’m 21 and about to go back to college via online classes). They made me sign a contract about conditions and stuff in order to continue living here when I was medically discharged from the Air Force after breaking both knees while running.
I have suffered with horrible chronic pain in my mouth due to awful overcrowding for most of my life. I decided to bite the bullet and get 5 teeth pulled a few days ago. I had enough in my savings to afford it after insurance, but I have $800 worth of work to do in a couple weeks (root canal + crown so I can finally eat on the right side of my mouth for the first time in several years) and then after that, I will need braces (my teeth wouldn’t work with invisalign, most likely).
I have also suffered from severe depression for years, and suicidal thoughts have really ramped up in the past few days, now that my time is running out in this house. I have no friends, and no family to move in with. My girlfriend lives on the exact opposite side of the world from me, so if I get kicked out, I won’t be able to go back to school, and I’ll never be able to afford a plane ticket to meet her in person. She cannot assist me financially as she barely makes $35 a month while she attends university. I am not asking for money for that cause in this campaign, but if you wanted to help out, I expect a budget of $2500-$3000 would cover everything. Again, not part of this campaign but any donations would be extremely appreciated at this time.
Due to the depression and suicidal thoughts, I have been looking into therapy and counseling. It costs way too much for me, as I have less than $800 in my bank account. I have over $1000 in credit card debt and about $5500 in student loan debt from attempting to attend university a few years ago. I dropped out due to extreme suicidal thoughts so that I could be with my family. The therapy I am looking at costs around $180 a month. I cannot afford that at this time. It is arguably less important currently than the dental work, so my priority is finishing the dental work so I can finally eat normally, as right now I am in a lot of pain.
I am asking for any amount of money you can spare for me. $1 would help me tremendously. I am not asking that all of my debt be paid off and that strangers on the internet pay for my dental work and therapy, and especially not for a trip to my girlfriend’s country. I am only asking for any financial assistance I can get at this time while I continue to search for a new job. Worst case scenario, I become homeless. Best case scenario, I find a decent job and can get dental work done, start therapy, go back to school, move out of my parents’ house, and save up to meet the love of my life in person for the first time.
Thank you so much if you read this far. Even if you don’t donate anything, I still appreciate your time.
