So I am going to give a break down on the past year and how I’ve come to be where I am today.
The new year was supposed to bring many good things as we all hope for, but in my case life took a turn for the worse. The father of my children and I have been together since 15 years old, so we’ve come across many obstacles like any relationship, until the verbal abuse had gotten so hurtful. Once he knew the words weren’t hurting anymore, it moved on to physical abuse. My children look up to their dad as Superman but to me I see someone I fear. We were always a team but nothing seemed good enough for him anymore. The abuse got more frequent, the bruises became more noticeable. .. I felt I had become a human punching bag with no way out. Until the day came where he tried to push me down our two flights of stairs in our home. At that moment I knew things would never go back to the good ol days. Unfortunately I was not making enough financially to hold down the fort on my own so we decided to sleep in separate beds to try and cope until one of us could get on our own. All went well until the day came when I had the sheriff knocking on my door to serve me a notice to quit. At that moment it had come to my attention that my ex held off on October’s rent without telling me. End of October I Ended up losing my job because my means of transportation had been wiped away. With everything falling apart I still try to make the day great and show my two amazing kids how strong their mama is, but sometimes we all hit that rock bottom feeling. I am there! At this point my ex moved out, left me with an eviction in motion, backed up light bill and all the other stress that comes with these life issues. I have until December 16th to leave my home with my kids & I have absolutely no savings or a place to go until I get on my feet. I do currently receive state benefits which is a huge help as far as grocery shopping goes, but trying to find a place to move with zero income seems close to impossible. Every day I am applying and making the necessary moves but some help would be tremendous. I’m giving this a shot with an open mind. I also know my story may sound horrible to some, but I am a fighter and he is out the picture which means I am safe again! If anyone could possibly contribute anything at all, the amount of stress that will be lifted off my shoulders will make me feel alive again. Any thing helps, and nothing is too small. We all need some help sometimes, it’s just up to us to put our pride aside and ask.
Thank you for taking the time to read & I appreciate any and all support!
