I don’t ever ask for help but we need it. And we need it pretty bad.
My name is Nia and I live with my boyfriend Haiden, my mom and my mom’s boyfriend. Me and my boyfriend need to move out. Haidens family is a 100% no go due to other difficult reasons. I’m 21 and Haiden is 19. We have a very healthy relationship but we are in a very toxic environment due to my mom and her boyfriend, Steven. Steven is abusive on every way you can think of and has cheated on my mom multiple times, yet they fight, he leaves, but always comes back. We get into screaming matches for things like asking him to do the dishes. My mom is verbally abusive to me and Haiden for small things like leaving and coming home at a certain time, the friends we have (who have done us no wrong in any way), we can never do laundry because steven constantly washes his work clothes and will ask us to take our clothes out so he can wash his and she will defend him. She also guilts us. Saying we don’t love her, care about her and I should just “go back to my friends mommy because shes better.” She even brings up sensitive subjects like my abusive ex. I had a really nice relationship with my mom before steven came around, and its not just me and Haiden that realize it. It’s just very toxic where we are. I recently got a well paying job. We just need a little help to get out. After that, my job pays well enough to hold up. We already found a place and its available the end of this month but won’t have enough. All of our savings have been either stolen or given to my mom. With that money we give her, she goes out to eat and gamble with her boyfriend.
Like I said, we just need a little help getting out and on our feet, being able to pay the fees about $1200 and getting basic living essentials like a bed, kitchen ware and so on.
Anything helps, and we appreciate to the moon and back. The absolute minimum we would need is about $3000 to move comfortably. Even if its enough to move in, were good with just a blanket on the floor and work our way for furniture.
Thank you so much.
