I never ask for money because I never needed to. I’ve been working part-time since I was sixteen! I’m an engineering student and I’ve always taken pride in this and my mom always provides. We live paycheck to paycheck but we get through. However, because of the government shutdown, my mom’s paychecks are not coming and I’m struggling to pay for my college and everything.
I had an internship last summer and there was an abusive person who had a power-trip and tried to ruin me. He made rumors about me and when I spoke up about him, he screamed at me and embarrassed me in front of everyone. He would take me to coffee and told me that it was because of him I got this internship. By the way, this guy was around 300 pounds and other people at work later told me he was an insecure guy. He manipulated me, made me feel like everyone was watching me, and made me feel so insecure. He reminded me of Harvey Weinstein and he wasn’t even in a managing position! I After this experience I failed two classes and had many relationships cut off. I kept thinking about this situation and I feel like it was the worst situation in my life!
I decided to go to therapy thinking my insurance could provide it. Turns out, they didn’t and I just got billed from my therapist for nearly $700! I am so pissed and I can’t even focus on another interview I have in a few days. How do I tell my mom I need to pay $680.80 for therapy sessions when she doesn’t even have a check from her job?
I never ask for money like this and this is definitely my last time. I desperately need it and I don’t know where else to go. I am more than sure I will find a good job after I finish my degree (I’m in Engineering).
If there is anyone who can donate for my therapy sessions, I would be more than happy and you are literally saving my life. I already owe student loans but I’m paying them off. If I knew that therapy would cost me this much, I would not have gone. My anxiety is getting worse. I can’t breathe and I applied to work for a number of different places already. Please help me!
