I never ever would’ve thought I’d be on a site begging for money, but times get hard for everyone, so here I am. I just graduated high school about a year ago. I turned 18 a little after and though I was old enough to move out of my mother’s home. I moved in with my boyfriend and his family and I’ve been living with them for about a year now. At first everything was great. I was paying all my bills on time, grocery shopping monthly, having more than enough money for extras as well. I was on the path to starting college. I received a full ride scholarship to one of my choice schools. January of 2018 is when we find out that my boyfriend mother is sick with cancer. The doctors gave her 6 months to live. I was devastated and angry on how someone who has always been so kind to everyone, can just get sick like that. I had a decision to either stick around and help out or I could’ve easily left and went to school. I chose to stay and help her and my boyfriend fight. I paid for extra gas to get her to her treatments. I bought her groceries. I ran out of money and applied for 5 credit cards and got two of them just so I could make ends meet for all of us. I know you’re thinking that I’m probably just making this up, especially since I have my boyfriend. But I most definitely am not. He is struggling the same as I am. He can’t afford to help himself, let alone help me. So here I am. A 19 year old, non college student, in so much debt it’s not even funny. I’ve used out all my resources and I have no where else to turn. I’ve tried to get a raise at my job, find a new job completely, and sell things of mine for extra money. I’m having no luck with any of it and I’m really at my breaking point. I know some with no believe me but I really really appreciate anything that anyone can do.
