This is my crazy and unfortunate situation to date.
I am in the middle of an awful divorce. Two years ago, my husband decided to kick me out without any notice and froze me out of our assets. I moved in with my parents. I have spent the better part of two years trying to find better employment, but for now, I make minimum wage and work part-time. The recession is real, I applied for a job a month ago and within three days it had over 200 applicants and I had people in the field vouching for me. I still did not receive even an interview. I make so little money, $15/hr., while my ex makes $175 an hour. He left me with nothing, and, until the divorce is finalized, I’m in a horrible, horrible spot.
Fast forward to a few months ago, a friend of mine (more of an acquaintance, I knew his brother more than I knew him) offered to help me with an investment. Sadly, I deal with depression so I take headpills. These headpills make me incredibly uninhibited and impulsive. I was talked into maxing my credit card and giving up every last penny to this man. Thousands of dollars borrowed from my family and a line of credit. I feel like such an idiot, and now I am forced to take him to court to hopefully get my money back. But in the meantime, I have nothing. Creditors are calling my house. This guy is a career con-man and a sociopath and I am now left on the brink of bankruptcy.
All I am asking is for someone to please help me with a little spare cash. It would go a long way to putting gas in my car or helping me to pay back one of the many people I owe money to (for example, my pup just had dental surgery, and my ex refuses to pay for more than half despite our differing incomes so I had to borrow money to cover it).
My heart is literally breaking. Yet I know, I am still very lucky because my family lets me live with them and I am not forced to be homeless. Thank you for reading.
