Thanks for opening my post. I appreciate your time so as to not waste any:
My name is Melissa. I need to change everything about my life or I fear I am going to regret the decisions I‘ve made, wishing I had owned my mistakes and made them right years ago. I miss my family so much and I fear for my health. Today, right now, I am committing myself to getting back on my feet, removing myself physically from the places that lead to vices and negative behavior, picking myself up, dusting myself off and working hard toward a normal life; closer to my family with nothing to hide.
I have never said that out loud. Until now, I thought it was hopeless and there was no way I would ever be able find the strength to turn things around and relocate back to my family. I didn‘t think I had it in me but i didn‘t realize I don’t have to do this alone. It was upon learning of the generosity of others through sites like this and connecting with a twelve step program that finally I am on my way.
I am clean 40 days today. I‘m trying to make plans to get out of the place I stay since there are others here who are still on the destructive path. I also need to get transportation or at least the means to start out in a ride share job through one of their car rental programs and I need to get my teeth fixed. I don‘t have a definite amount I need but an apartment or room to stay in of my own is the place to start I think. I have been looking around and rooms are about $1000 a month plus security deposit. The ride hare job can start with an initial $600 to get my license back and $300 for the first week of rental and the security deposit they ask for.
Again thank you for your time and attention. I can do this, I know I can. I am hopeful about the future and will succeed because I believe in myself and the positive forces that connect us as humans. If you decide to help me with a contribution, thank you so much. I’m not even sure how to express my gratitude for such a generous act. Thank you. If you have read what I had to say here, donation or not, please think of me and push some positive energy my way. That is free and powerful.
Thanks again and enjoy your day.
