I never thought i would end up in a position such as this, but here we are!
I’m a girl in her mid-20s with nowhere left to turn. All because I was too afraid to quit, even when I knew things were getting bad. But now I’m stuck in a hole I can’t get out of, and I truly am in need of help.
I never went to university due to panic and anxiety attacks that stemmed from college. I started an apprenticeship at 21, which paid less than £4 an hour, not a lot to live off of when you have to pay rent. I had to buy groceries with my credit card in order to eat. This debt started to build up, but for a time I was on top of it all. However, things for worse 18 months ago when my landlord sold the flat I lived in with very little notice. All the money I had was put into moving costs and a deposit for a house with my partner. This set us back thousands of pounds.
Because of all this, I’m now in debt again to the tune of £3,000, and I’m struggling to pay it back. My panic attacks are taking over my life, and my mental health has gone way down hill. I have no one left to turn to, and I can’t see glad light at the end of the tunnel. I’m afraid this will also soon affect living costs.
I know life is hard for others in very similar positions, so my story isn’t new. But if anyone could please spare any amount of money, I would be grateful.
However I get there, if any kindness is shown to me from this website, I vow to pay it forward in the future. I know how hard it is to ask for help.
