I’m Kelly. A 49 year old female, divorced after 23 years to my second husband and the mother of 3 amazing young men.
I left my ex after many years of pure unhappiness. I wasn’t able to be myself and years of hiding the true me made me feel worthless and as though I was not enough. Unfortunately I felt leaving my son’s with their father until I could get myself an apartment and be financially stable was the best for them.
I did well at first. Within a month I had an apartment, made decent money and felt happy.
My son’s never came to live with me. My husband who supposedly loved me never once asked me to come home. I met people who were and still are no good for me to be around.
I’ve lost everything 3 times in 4 years. I signed over my share of assets in my marriage to my ex in our divorce to take care of child support until my youngest baby boy is 18. My car I drove for 17 years completely broke down. I flipped and totalled my next car after being forced off road. My 3rd Car was repoed. I was living in that car when I lost it.
I’ve been homeless, couch surfing for over 6 months. Praying for a safe place to lay my head at night so i don’t sleep outside. So far I’ve been lucky.
My luck is running out. I go back and forth from my oldest son’s to my brothers every 2 or 3 days. They both want me gone from their homes so they can live their lives.
At the moment I’m asking for help to rent a hotel room for a month. It will cost $750. I’ve had a tooth infection for over a cc week. So I’m sick from that and I spend most of the day outside in the heat so I don’t disturb my families homes too much.
I feel if I had a stable place to stay everyday for at least this long the severe depression and anxiety and guilt I feel could be addressed and I could find the help I need to get back on track. I have no source of income at the moment. I get food stamps which I’m grateful for. Other than that I have no money coming in.
Im desperate for a little peace in my life. I need to get control of my mental state as it is getting worse. And to be honest I need to be alone and not have to answer to or be controlled by other people so I can make my own decisions.
I can’t explain how appreciative I would be if I could get help to do just this…. I don’t know that I can explain how much it would help my mental state… And most 9f all I need to heal my body from this infection
Anyone who finds it in their heart to help me please know I will pay It forward. You would be helping a woman who has given up on humanity. Thank you for taking time to read my story. And even bigger thanks if you bless me with a donation.
