My name is Hannah, Im 29 years old and I am a single mother of 2 amazing daughters.
I’m sorry to be on this site (I feel like such a failure). Tears streaming down my face as I’m writing this because I have no other options.
I won’t drag this out for too long, although that seems impossible under the circumstances.
I’ve had a steady job for the last 5 years, and have been working steady since I was 14 years old. I’ve been moved around a lot and pulled in places and in new positions. I’ve dealt with it like a champ. (Or at least dealing the best I can).
I have no financial support, no mental support (thanks to Alberta Health dropping my appointments over covid). Very little emotional support and I’m just feeling very empty.
I work between 56-78 hours a week as it is and Things keep getting financially worse. I can’t afford all the basics on my own. I havnt been able to in a long time and it’s taken me this long to swallow my pride and admit it.
I have also moved my mother into my basement (I rent, not own) to try to sober her up. She’s been a heavy drug addict for the past 18 years and the wait list for treatment is over 130 people long and I fear that if I don’t get her in, this will be the end.
She’s on assisted living and helps pay for half my bills.. so even if I could afford the private rehab which is upwards of 10-17,000 per month.. I then would be cutting off my own foot with my financial help.
I have exhausted my resources. I am mentally at rock bottom and With the loss of practically everyone dear to me, I have nothing and no one left. My best is not, has not been and seems as if it will ever be anywhere close to enough.
I’m just a girl trying to get my mom sober so that my children have their grandma.. and I’m able to get my mom back, while being able to afford to live without deciding witch bill will be cut off this month. This page does not touch on the big hardships I’ve had to endure in my life. I’m trying to make this is simple as possible.
My goal is to be able to put my mother through a minimum of 6 months treatment.. while still being able to feed my family. So as outrageous as it sounds that 60,000 would “fix” my life. I’m just sitting in a situation where that would hardly even cover the treatment.
If anybody is able to pitch in a little as they possibly could, I would be so very grateful.
If you’ve taken the time to at least read this, I am thankful for that. Thank you and god bless each and every one of you.
