Attached is proof that I have an eviction notice from my home. Me and my 6 year old daughter are meant to leave the home in a month.
Last night my daughter asked me, “mummy, do we still get to keep Ringo?”, who is our dog. I didn’t have the heart to tell her we can’t keep Ringo because we don’t have the money.
I thought my partner was paying the rent over the past two months, but as I learned he had planned to leave long in advance and cancelled his scheduled payments, and hidden letters from me that asked me to pay the rent. My partner broke up with me last week, which absolutely destroyed me, but I know is a good thing as he was nasty and rough with my daughter. However since he’s not here to hide the mail I’ve recieved this notice to move out.
I’ve been kicked out because my abusive ex stopped paying the rent. I don’t have money to afford a lawyer as I struggle to even pay for meals for myself and my daughter now that he’s gone. My daughter keeps asking when ‘daddy’ is coming home. I haven’t slept in two weeks. I’m 39 and have been unemployed for a while due to the fact my partner was financially supporting us, so it will be near impossible to find a job. My parents disowned me many years ago when I told them I’m bisexual and had a female partner at the time.
My food comes from the food bank, and I recieve a small amount of money from the government for being in a crisis situation, which barely covers anything. I still won’t be able to get enough money to afford even just a small unit for me and my daughter. She is six years old and beautiful, still so optimistic in these times but I will not be able to support her and I do not want her taken from me.
Please, if anyone could even donate the smallest amounts it would mean the world to me. It would be a filling meal for my daughter, it would be money I can put towards getting a home for us.
