Everyone needs alittle help now and then.
You know those moments in life when nothing seems to be working out for you? Wether it be bad luck or the decisions you’ve made, everyone hits their lowest point and for some people it’s hard or damn near to impossible to break the cycle they are stuck in. Not because a lack of effort on their part but simply because the situation just can’t be resolved without swallowing ones pride and asking for help.
Hi my name’s Christina and I’m 25 years old and due to a series of unfortunate events that myself and my fiancee have dealt with throughout our lives, we have become homeless. I really don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me in the least bit because yea maybe I’ve had a rocky life but part of that is my fault. I didn’t think my actions through like a smart person would I just thought in the moment “why not?” And made huge choices without giving myself time to really stop and think things through.
I’ll make this quick.
We put ourselves in this position but can’t get out due to the circumstances. We were given the opportunity to move to Colorado and live with a good friend of mine. Life back home wasn’t going to well due to us hoping from place to place without being given a real chance to save enough money to get a place on our own. We started fighting alot more and started dealing with a unreasonable amount of stress. This caused my fiancee, J to have a mental break down causing him to admit himself into a hospital to get the treatment he needed.
About 2 days before his release I was given the option for us to move across the country and start new. That same night I talked with J about all of it and told him we had to make our decision by the day he was to leave. 2 days that was it and out to Colorado we went. This eventually turned into what seemed like a good choice we all got along all paid our way and just made life a tad bit easier for each other. Until March of 2019. Hello, covid-19….
Our roommate my friend was an essential worker as for me and my partner we quickly lost our jobs. We tried so hard to keep things even and help out with other thing bedsides rent. Now we both did apply for unemployment but my partner was a victim of fraud which caused them to deni him and because of all the issues unemployment gave me I didn’t receive it until it was to late. My roommate wasn’t happy with how things were going and also because she had her new boyfriend move in. Needless to say he did not like us because we didn’t approve of the way he treated her. It Didn’t take long before she kicked us out. No where to go still waiting for unemployment couldn’t find job living in the jeep that wasn’t and still isn’t up to date.
Life blew up in our faces in a blink of the eye. These events all led up to 6 months of sleeping in the jeep and staying in hotel rooms after we received my unemployment, only giving me 280 a week.
There is also the problem of Hotel rooms eventually kicking us out with no notice and given poor excuses as to why because they don’t want you to become a resident. Plus you can only imagine how expensive that is but I rather work odd jobs everyday to atleast pay for a bed to sleep in then out in the winter months of colorado.
We both have had rough lives before even meeting. I dealt with a mentally abusive, alcoholic father who constantly told me I was meant to be alone. You start to believe it’s true when even your mother forgets you at home 4 times and doesn’t realize until you call her. Now my man had it worse then anyone I’ve known, and trust me I’ve heard some terrible stories about people’s childhood. All the physical and mental abuse including abuse I won’t go into detail about out of respect for him. Sadly this turned once a happy innocent blue eyed boy into a closed off, tough, mentally ill, unhappy man who couldn’t trust another human without expecting hurt in the end. Yet he still tries his hardest to keep us afloat and works hard to make that money each day for a roof over our heads.
As I said earlier I don’t feel comfortable doing this but with all he deals with day to day I want to be able to give him that win we’ve been praying for. Just enough to get ourselves a place to live without having to fight with this cycle of losing jobs because it’s never set in stone if we’re gonna be able to shower or wash clothes that week. Jobs don’t want someone who comes off as unclean and doesn’t have a permanent address. I also just want to give me a break after all we’ve been through. I hate to say it but even I need a break, it’s just unhealthy for us at this point. So please give us the opportunity to achieve our goals and dreams of living a comfortable, simple, loving, and most of all happy life we desperately want, and maybe even able to start our own family. All we need is some financial help to get us started and to get us into a permanent home so we can go back to work (he’s a welder it helps his mind) and school (so I can work with kids as either a teacher or phycologist.) After that we’ll take it from there and fight with everything we have to make it work.
Thank you and God bless to anyone who takes the time to read this.
