Hello, I hope this reaches the right people. I am a young college student studying Diagnostic Medical Sonography. I have always been focused on reaching my goals and helping others the best way I can in that moment. I’ve never had much, but I have always made it a point to go out of my way to help others. Hopefully, my caring nature and good deeds will circle back to me in my time of need. Last year in April I had to suddenly move out on my own due to suffering abuse from family. This abuse has been ongoing for years on top of abuse suffered from past relationships. I was in just good enough financial position to move out. I have made it over a year being alone which is a big milestone in itself, but not without plenty of hiccups along the way. I was diagnosed with severe depression, general anxiety, ptsd, and borderline personality disorder. Starting in 2019 I’ve tried to take my life every year in October. It seems as though October is an extremely hard month for me to get through and I reach my tipping point. However, in 2021 I recognized the signs and decided to reach out and get help before doing something I can’t take back.I entered a long term treatment program that focused on coping with my mental illnesses, finding the right medication for me, and processing through the trauma. I was making great progress and my outlook on life increased drastically. I had been with the company I was working for at the time for less than a year, therefore I was not being compensated for being out of work. After my medical leave was over I was let go from my job in December. Since September of 2022 I have been using all the money in my savings to stay on top of all if my bills. I did qualify for rental assistance, but they only paid out for 2 months and now I’m waiting on the recertification process and they don’t start that until at least 90 days after the last rental payout which was in February 2022. It is also first come first serve so who knows how much longer I will have to wait. I am behind on all of my bills and I’m afraid that I will be evicted if I can’t pay my rent in May. I would then have to move back into an abusive home which will affect the progress I’ve made with my mental health in return. This is definitely my last option for trying to get help. I need at least $4000 to stay afloat and ahead for now. Your help would be greatly appreciated and I thank you for even taking the time out to read my story.
