I don’t even know how life got to be so hard. I was in a relationship with a man that I thought loved me. As time went on, he started getting so angry and I was the one he took his anger out on. He would call me names, degrade me, gaslight me, and made me believe that I was not going to be okay without him, that no one else would put up with me. The abuse got to be physical, as well. He would rape me and there was nothing I could do about it. I lost my job in July because of all the issues related to this relationship. I was in this cloud where I didn’t think I could leave and stay away until I did. This has truly been the hardest thing I have ever been through, just to turn around and everything in my life is falling apart.
I am about to lose everything I’ve worked so hard to get. My utilities are going to be shut off on 09/20, my mortgage and my car payments are two months behind.
I am desperate. I am grateful I found the strength to get away but now I am scared that I am about to be homeless and without a car. Anything will help.
And please know that I am doing everything in my power to help myself. I am looking for jobs and I am working Instacart, but that only allows me to barely eat after gas and maitence to keep my car running.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
