I can remember the day that I lost my entire world. I was in my 3rd year of college, a few days away from going into my 4th year of Nursing School. I was almost finished with my Bachelors. I found out on Facebook that my mother had passed away from an overdose (she was age 40). From that day on, I had to fly back to NC and use my last year college fund to pay for my mothers funeral. Not long after that, but my long term boyfriend ended up getting shot in our hometown. After those two deaths, I really never thought much more could go wrong and I could carry on. Unfortunately, it did. My grandmother,great grandmother on both sides of my family, grandfather, uncle and two college friends had all passed within a year. I felt I couldn’t see straight. Since my family was unable to pay for so many funerals, I had to take out everything I had plus had to borrow. Now, I am in debt. I wouldn’t trade it for the world and I really wanted to make sure every person had a good funeral. I lost my entire world within two years. I’ve still not been able to grieve properly, and I dont know if I ever will. On top of that, the only person I really have left in my family is my father. April 17th, 2011 my father got into an accident that caused him to have a traumatic brain injury that has altered his mental state for the rest of his life. I am not even 30 yet, and I’m still really struggling but thankfully the Lord blessed me with a little boy, Benjamin, who has helped ease some of the heartache and pain. I just hate it for him to not have a lot of family on my side that can love him and care for him the way that they were there for me. I am struggling financially now because of not being able to finish my nursing degree, then on top of that, I got T-boned in an accident that totalled my vehicle so now I am without a vehicle and trying to find a way to work. I really never thought I would go towards the internet for help, but I have been desperate for so long that I finally gave in. I appreciate your time, even just to read this. Its been a real struggle for my son and I but I appreciate everything and every struggle because I believe it will make me a better and more empathetic person for the rest of my life. Thank you all for your care and time!
If your able to help, I appreciate it so much. If your just able to read, thank you so much as well. My little family genuinely appreciates it.
