My partner is a stay at home mum who became disabled because of work (deafness and limb loss) and I work 6 days a week all for very little if I’m being honest. There’s only so many times you can ask the people you know and love for help before you start to feel less like family and more like a financial burden.
We have young boys, all under 10, and find most of our income goes on clothes for them, as well as food and bills. We sometimes joke that when my wages go into the bank it only means we’ll be out of the overdraft for two days before we’re back at square one.
I’ll try to keep this brief, as I know nobody wants to read a novel-length sob story. My partner and I both suffer from depression and take medication to “fix” it. We often spend more time worrying about what we can afford to feed everyone than live our lives. I guess we just need a little help? Money for bills, food, etc… we’d even be grateful if people donated £1, you can actually buy more than you think with a few quid… when the chips are down, you tend to find the best in humanity when people pull together.
As a side project, I’m trying to become a screenwriter and make more money through my own personal skills than having to beg strangers. But the chances of making enough/anything from my ventures are slim, and although I’d like to make it one day in writing, I still have my feet on the ground when it comes to dreams. If I ever do make enough money to one day repay the favour to someone less fortunate than myself, I’ll be the first person back here to help a person in need.
