My ex boyfriend took all my money; my life saving and made me lose my job. He convinced me to go live with him in his hometown so I decided to quit my job, drop out of college and follow him. Everything was so perfect, we had our future all planned out. He wanted me to always be at home and let him be the one to earn money for both of us; since his job had a decent pay I didn’t worry much about who goes to work. Then all of a sudden he came to me and told me that he wanted to quit his job and start his own business. At first, I supported him until I found out that the business he was doing involved in smuggling illegal drugs. I convinced him to stop but he refused and continue to be involved with drugs; he soon started doing drugs himself. He started becoming more and more violent the longer he did drugs. He would abuse me and threaten to kill me. Life became very dark and gloomy but there was no way out for me. I didn’t know anyone in town nor did I know where to go for help. When I finally decided it was enough, I threatened to report him to the police but that didn’t stop the problems but instead made it worse. He took all his belongings and all the money with him when he decided to leave. I was left with nothing and had no idea to start new. HIs drug dealer friends came looking for him not knowing that he already left and when they saw me all devastated they offered to give me a loan. I was desperate for money, I couldn’t afford to pay the rent with the job I have so I took the loan his friend offered. It went well at first until it was time to pay back the loan. His friends come everyday threatening to kill me if I didn’t pay back their money. So I decided to run away from the apartment and ended up living in the streets for half a year. I now currently have 2 jobs but I can barely pay off the rent for the place I’m staying. My ex’s friends are still on my tail, making me pay off the debt I owe. I really am in need of some money. I want to start my life over and get rid of all the debts I owe. I will forever be grateful to anyone who’s willing to spare some change and help me out of my misery.
