My name is Amanda. I got married in 2014 for the first time ever. I was so happy at first. He quickly changed. He started smoking weed again and hanging out with other females a lot. Especially one in particular that lived right beside us. For years I felt like he loved drugs and other women more than me. I was very unhappy and cried a lot. I took my marriage vows seriously and was always faithful to my husband. He would constantly be short and rude to me with his words. He actually spent more time ignoring me and doing other things than actually spending time with me. Looking back now I know I should have just gotten an annulment. In 2016 I think he was having women over when I wasn’t home. I would find clothing that didn’t belong to me. When I asked him he would say he didn’t know where they came from. In August of 2017 I told him I wanted a divorce. He screamed at me that he didn’t and told me he would never give me a divorce. He was very controlling he would take the car keys and hide them so I couldn’t go anywhere. I felt like a prisoner in my own home. He took the vehicle to work everyday and at night if I needed to go somewhere he would take me. He totally isolated me from my family. It’s sad to say that I had no friends. By November of 2017 he had ripped the closet doors off the bedroom closets punched holes in the wall busted the windshield on the truck. I called the police many times. They would separate us and talk to each of us and then say they could take both of us to jail or he could leave for the night. I even had bruises on my arms where he grabbed me so hard on my arms. There is no telling what he was telling them. After that he was careful to never grab my arms again and he started choking me. I would tell him he hurt me and he would tell me he didn’t hurt me that there were no marks on my neck. The officers that came at night didn’t seem to help me. So I called a few times while he was at work but they never showed up. I felt helpless, trapped in a bad marriage, and like a prisoner in my own home. I would tell him I was hungry and ask him to give me money to eat, let me go get something to eat or drive me himself. He would tell me I could wait until tomorrow. He was very controlling. Finally one morning in March of 2018 he destroyed property in the home and choked me again. I had had enough so I called the police and this time I went outside to watch for them. The officer road right past my house. That’s when I knew the times before they couldn’t find my house when I had called before during the day. My husband had a restraining order that lasted a year. He took all the dishes a brand new tv I had just bought and the only vehicle we had. We have been legally separated for two years next month. He won’t give me a divorce and he won’t help me financially. He is living with his second fiance right now while still married to me. At this very moment I have 4 packs of raymond noodles in the house nothing to drink and not a penny to my name. The central heat hasn’t worked in years my electric heater went out this morning. It gets down in the 30s at night. I am using a heating pad and 2 big blankets to stay warm. The heating pad has an automatic shut off so it won’t burn me. Everyone talks about food banks but they don’t deliver groceries to your home. There is a place in town that feeds lunch everyday but with no money for the bus or a cab and no one to take me I can’t get there to eat. I was renting out my spare bedroom. Then I found out she was using drugs and prostituting out of my home. I got a job and was suppose to start the week after Thanksgiving but got sick the day before I was suppose to start. They told me that because I couldn’t come in on my start date not to come at all. I was making it with the rent money she was paying me. I have applied for many jobs and I know eventually I will get one. Not having transportation or the money for transportation makes it impossible to go anywhere even impossible to go to the place that serves free lunch everyday or to a food bank. I have lost 25 pounds in a month because I go 3 days at a time without eating. I really do appreciate you reading my story. I have never had to go online and ask for help like this. I know that the Lord will provide for me and maybe you could find it in your heart to help me. Any amount of money would be very helpful. I would use the money for transportation, groceries, and a new electric heater and for a lawyer to divorce my husband. I know that food and water comes first because I have to have that to live. To be working and to have a car would be a real blessing. Even if you read my story and can’t give but know someone who can please share my story with them. Also if you can’t t help me please say a prayer for me. I know God hears our prayers and He answers prayers. God bless you and your family.
I am strong and independent. I never wanted help from anyone but right now I need it.
I am 30 years old, no children, not married. I have bartended since I have been 18. In 2014 I got a job at the post office as a rural carrier. I also worked on the city side but I was only a sub and was on call everyday. So I had to bartend 6-7 nights a week. There were lots of days I put in 16+ hours between both jobs. I actually did pretty well. Bought a truck and treated my friends out on day trips because usually I am a very giving person. As the years went by I wanted to better myself. I live in a very small town but we are lucky enough to have UPS in our area. I always wanted to be a UPS driver! That was my dream. I’m a tiny girl 5 foot 2 inches. I wanted to work just as hard as the boys because I know I can. I’m not a slacker by any means. So in October 2018 I was hired at UPS. Had to quit the Post Office because you cannot work both. I had to quit bartending because my hours just didn’t work out. Well in the few weeks in between Thanksgiving and Christmas I was able to drive. Had my own route worked 12+ hours a day. Loved it!! After the seasonal period ends so did the hours and the driving. Being the new guy and at the bottom of the list has me struggling! Every morning I get the packages from the airplane. Could be 40 minutes of work or if the plane is late I get to drive some packages to the drivers out of town. That adds only about 3 hours. Then I work nights loading up the trailers. That’s only from 4:30pm until 6:30-7pm. Only $14 an hour. I cannot get another job because of the split shift combination. I’ve tried no one will hire me because of my strange hours. I get to deliver on Saturdays but there is only about 7 packages and that’s max 2 hours. Being a UPS driver in our small area is a GREAT job when you are full time but for me that could be years! It will be worth it but right now I’m struggling! Big time! Lucky if I make $250 a week. I have credit card bills that piled up because of my little income. My mother died in July 2019 and I’m trying to pay off half the funeral still. My Aussie got sick and spent a few night in the doggie hospital. I had to pay my taxes from last year on my credit card. Car insurance has been going on my cards. I can’t even eat healthy. I am trying to train for my first ultra marathon in June on my basement treadmill and I can’t even buy fruit, meat or veggies I need to keep this training up. Been living on piles of old oatmeal and old cans of veggies in my cabinets. I’ve been so careful with my spending but I just can’t get ahead! Now taxes are coming up again. I don’t go anywhere, do any unnecessary shopping nothing! I will be well off when I am a full time driver and I will be able to take my friends out again and I will be able to donated to the places I have in the past but right now is really bad and I have never been in this spot before. I’m too stubborn to ask my family or people I know for money. I have 2 credit cards both are about $3,500 so total of $7,000. Also I owe about $26,000 on my truck. I’ve been thinking about selling it but I need a good reliable truck for our very bad winters in Northern WI. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not a person who begs naturally. I’m a hard worker! I know what goes around comes around. If I get help when I’m a full time driver I will SURELY be on the path to helping others out! Anything to help me out to get my bills down right now so I can try to save more for the up coming years of part time will be greatly appreciated! I don’t know what I’m going to do otherwise!
I bought a car in May 2019 from an independent garage, paid £1300 deposit and finance for £3500, £127.80/month for the next 36 months.
After 3 months the car broke down, I was 80 miles away from home ans I paid £150 emergecy tax for AA Recovery but they couldn’t fox the car, another £200 for the recovery truck to take it home.
The car was under warranty for 1 year, and I tried to use it to fix my car. I was asked to pay for the diagnostic, £300 but in 2 months the garage couldn’t find the problem.
I contacted the seller and askd for help as I thought its not normal to buy a car and brokedown after 3 months. They said they would help me and asked me to move the car to another garage. After 1 month I’ve been told that they got £956 from the warranty but they car needs a new engine and I have to pay for it as they can’t find the issue with the original engine and the warranty company won’t cover the costs.
I paid for the engine £1200 but after they fot it, they told me that some sensors are missing from the car, DPF sensor and oxygen sensor and ask me to pay for ne ones. I accepted and after they installed the sensors they sre telling me that the new engine is not working and I have to get a new one.
Now I have to pay them a bill of £1689.05 ( the 2 sensors are included in price and £956 will be paid by warranty) but they car is not working and I on the top of that I have to pay them to take of the engine and fit another one.
I have to mention that they never checked the car, they just ask for an new engine( maybe the engine was never faoulty). After months in garage they asked me what the original problem was, so then I understood that they never checked the car.
I’ve contacted the Citizen Advice and the Financial company where I’m paying finance for the car but they are not willing to help, neither the original seller.
So I spent £150 on AA Recovery, £200 recovery truck, £300 diagnostics, £1200 new engine, £700 the bill for garage + bus tickets and taxi for 7 months because I’m working 5 miles away from home in another city and the car is still not working and they are asking for more money and another engine.
I honestly don’t know what else I can do, I still have to pay the finance for the car, I’m already £8000 in debt and keep growing.
I’m a struggling young woman trying to make it through this world the best I can. I’m really trying to make it to the point where I can move out from my parents’ house and start life on my own. I can’t handle being in this house where I’m constantly berated for not wanting to be around my family, when all they do is demand and beg from me, or yell at me, or just make me feel like I don’t belong.
I know this isn’t the best way to try and get a home, but it can help with the payments that I do want to make so that I can start saving for my own home. I can make a whole list of things that I need to be paid for, some necessities, some not so much but would help me in future endeavors, and such, but I won’t make a massive list, I’ll just name a few.
Back in April, my poor car who has been lovingly named the Shitmobile was ran into by a guy who shouldn’t have been on the road. He scarred my poor little sister, and the entire passenger side of my car was damaged. The doors need to be replaced and the frame needs to be fixed so that I can put new doors in and maybe fix up the front and back fenders. Otherwise, water and snow and everything else leaks in. There are also damages around the taillight and one of the headlights because (I’ll be honest) I backed into my stepdad’s car on accident and destroyed my taillight, so I paid to fix his car, and he was kind enough to replace my taillight (For legal reasons I needed a taillight) but the area is so messed up that the taillight always looks like its about to fall off. The headlight has a problem because someone backed into it, and that area is also very damaged. Both areas have rust, and need new paint, my poor car just has so many problems. If I just got the outside fixed, my car would stop breaking the way it does.
I recently got a credit card as well to help build credit because I was told that would help me in trying to get an apartment, which was my only reason for getting it. Well, Christmas came and went, and then the rent I pay to my mom, and a few other expenses got in the way, and I didn’t use my debit card because I was trying to save money (In a stupid way, I know) and now I have a little debt that I cannot afford right away. I usually save enough, but because of a bunch of other expenses I don’t want to divulge into (very personal stuff, not clothes or makeup or crap like that) and now I can’t seem to get back up to the amount I need. I work two jobs, but they’re just waitressing jobs and I can’t seem to make enough to make ends meet, especially after expenses come and go. I pay for my car insurance and for my phone, as well my rent to my mom, so its a lot right now. I think I literally made about 200 dollars from my last two paychecks, and I only get paid every two weeks. I just need enough to pay that off, and then the credit card goes away for emergencies only.
And then of course there are the less important I WANTS. I want to buy a camera set so I can start doing YouTube more professionally and I want to get a tattoo. Less important of course, but I want to be honest.
I am a small business owner and I have been trying to get a loan to keep my business going and hopefully make enough to retire soon. I am 57 years old and own a construction company and just recently I was scammed by a company that left me on the hook for a large sum of money. I’m not looking to get rich off this just recoup a devastating loss. At this stage in my life I can’t afford to lose this amount. I have no retirement to rely on. I am praying deeply for someone or a group that can help me. I know a lot of people are begging for help on these sights and I am no different. I am sincere in my request and believe there are still some good people out there. I am not a scammer or looking pull a fast one I am very hurt that someone took advantage of me, my trust in people has been lost. I can’t believe their are people who feel good about doing something g will hurt others. I’ve lived my whole life believing that their is a path God has put us on and the path I’ve recently been on has left me to trust the path but I understand I can’t do it alone. Please if anyone that reads this and can help because you have been blessed with financial freedom I will be in your debt and will never forget those that help. Someday if we meet here or beyond hopefully I can thank you for sharing your love for people that need it like me. I will not ask for anything more than what I have lost and anything beyond that I will give to others that have fallen like me. Someone Please hear my prayer. Thank you.
So, I decided to try this out as a last resort honestly. I keep asking talking and praying to God trying to find a solution. But, I moved halfway across the country at 17 last year by myself, to pursue my dream of Figure Skating at the Olympic Training Center. I live alone in a tiny studio apartment, living off of social security from when my Dad Passed away last April from cancer. Losing that financial support has been a huge toll on my family, and knew I had to be independent with my bills. But as you can imagine, Paying for training, food, college, and bills has been a lot. and i’m starting to get very behind. I owe 7,000 at the moment, and am trying to get that in time for when rent,classes, and training bills are due. I know everyone is looking for money, but I would be extremely grateful. And it would really help me get back on my feet. Thank you got even taking the time to read my post! God bless you and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Hello, my name is Dale
I am 26 years old and currently seek help. For as long as I could remember I’ve always been the giving person either it be for my close family or my friends, even random strangers if they have crossed my way. Never have I asked for anything in return but it has crossed my mind as of “ it be nice” in that gesture. Not too long ago I helped a family member and had given them my savings 30k to be exact, why ? It was something I was just compelled to do. This is an amount I have saved for years, hoping to move on buy a house start a life with someone special. But instead I got ghosted by who I thought was in my life again after being gone for a majority of it.
I had no regrets until everything around me came crashing down and reality hit.
hospital bills, repossessions, lost wages, broken car, depression, shot credit
The list can go on it’s the feeling of I would give my life to protect the smiles of my loved ones if I could help them in some sort of way.
but it’ll get better eventually was the goto quote id say in my head.
I don’t make a lot, and what I do have it goes back.
I work as a civil servant, I’ve probably protected your home at one point, smiled at you and carried on.
my blood sweat and tears have kept me moving to find any means to continue.
this is a very vague paragraph, but the matter of the fact is yes. I am struggling, one sided loans are terrible, my credit is bad which was not by self infliction. I barely make enough sometimes during bill time. So I either choose to skip to eat on some days or just not think about it.
For the individual, if you’ve chosen to help me
Even for a day or a month you’d have picked me back up on my feet and given me back my stability. thank you
My name is John Nguyen, Viettanh is my middle name. I am a 26 year old man who is trying to get his life back in order, I have had depression for years now. I managed to work my way out of it the first time but I unfortunately fell back into the slump and would like a second chance. This is kind of my last resort because now the debt has caught up with me and unfortunately has put a toll on my mental health. It hurts a lot, and I understand that they’re are a lot of people like me and what makes me different from them? I’m not, I am just a person who is struggling in life, trying his best to get his life back in order, any steps that he can but can’t afford it anymore. I’m scared if I give up certain things I may dig myself a bigger hole and continue doing that until the inevitable happens. I’ve already made my will and would like to not commit to that, I really want to live but I’m afraid that a part of me, a part of my mind, will all of a sudden say fuck it and go away. I am in a lot of debt and my current job is not giving me enough hours to make pass the interest fees. I unfortunately have bills to pay and a student at a college. I would like to keep both school and pay off the debt but its very hard because I’m afraid if I drop school, I won’t be going back. School is kind of the one of the main things that’s keeping me from quitting everything. I want to continue fighting for my life but this credit card debt is killing me inside. I want to see a therapist/psychiatrist or potentially start new medication to try things out but it all requires money. I’m not insured and sessions and monthly medication could cost a lot. I just don’t have the funds to be able to do that right now. I am begging for anyone to help me. Anything or if at most all or extra, I just would like a jumpstart again somehow someway. Any person that would help me I would also like to keep in contact so in the future I won’t disapoint, I will repay you back greatly. It would take some time, but I will do everything in my power to be successful in life and pay it back. I don’t want to disappoint anymore, I want to make it. I have no one to ask here, I don’t want to burden anyone else for my own problems, I know a few of them wouldn’t have the funds either and everyone else is dealing with their own problems. Anyone, please, I just don’t want to live.
Here is my paypal link
And how much I owe currently. I would like to get rid of this credit card debt so I can just focus on my education, the interest is roughly 600$ and with my current job, I’m not making enough to pay it off every month so time is slowly ticking before it goes over.
Last year was the worst year i have ever been through in my life. I went to the ER twice in a very short amount of time, plus several normal visits all because at 22 years of age, i am having heart problems. My heart trouble started in the 2nd of may 2019. I lost my job soon after due to being unable to physically meet the demands of the job. I was a trash hauler, i worked up to 14 hour days, driving truck and dumping trash. My life fell apart after that. The doctors never know what is wrong. some say heart murmurs, some say faulty heart valve, some say panic attacks or too much stress. Currently i have about 3 bills i cannot pay and about 8K in credit card debt due to paying for health medication and trips to the hospital or clinics or for medication. Not to mention money i have has to try to loan and pay back. Total i am about 20K in total debt. With no consistent jobs or even current job prospects. I have to pay rent every month to live, i have to keep up my car insurance to be able to travel to the hospital or to try to work odd jobs that i can actually physically manage. I have wanted to give up so many times. Because my heart issues make me extremely tired and fatigued, i cannot push myself or do much physical work. But the work i can do or can find i throw myself into. Even if it physically is too hard for me. And light work or consistent work is hard to find. I have put out my resume/applications to so many places and have ultimately been turned down due to my situation. I pay 475$ a month for rent, 80$ for phone, 90$ for car insurance. Any spare money i can scrounge up goes to medication, health bills, and lastly food. Which i get little of. today 02/07/2020 at 2:25 AM it has been 5 days since i have had a balanced or full meal. Ive had to eat mostly noodles or rely on trying to find work or something to sell to be able to buy groceries. I cant keep up anymore. I’m broken, financially, and emotionally. I am trying so hard to piece my life back together. But i cannot do it alone anymore. It has not worked. I have barely 100$ left to my name, and i am running out of things to sell, and i have not been able to find work in 2 weeks. I’m down to a month left of hypertension and heart medication. I need help… something that has always been hard for me to accept or ask for. But please, i genuinely don’t know where or who to go to anymore. I want to just give up. The only thing that keeps me going is the fact that i am not too deep in the hole to not be able to see the light. To those of you who can or do help…. thank you so much. I have had to rely on the kindness of strangers, and i hope to beat this and get back to a point in life where i can help those in need. Thank you for your time. Please if you have questions or want to see bills, email me. Upload size here is .5 mb, so not enough.
Hi and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
I’m writing to ask for your help. I need $75,000 to get out of debt. It’s my own fault and I take the blame for it. We are about to lose or house that we’ve lived in for 25 years.
I got my husband and I into bad credit card debt and I tried to file chapter 7 bankruptcy, but there is too much equity in the house, so we could not save our house with that option. On the chapter 13 bankruptcy we would have to pay $1100 a month for the next 5 or 6 years which even the lawyer said we can’t afford. We are on a fixed income now of only $2336 a month
I was making the payments fine till my husband was involved in a wreck (he’s fine) and totaled our only vehicle. He was a school bus driver and 72 years old. The wreck shook him up so bad that he was/is too scared now to drive the school bus with kids on it, so he quit. Which at 72 he needed to anyway. I am 60. I had told him before this happened that we needed to file bankruptcy, but he had no idea how far in debt we were. He has Chronic Kidney disease and arthritis and I have COPD, migraines and arthritis.
I had never been late on any of the credit cards, but now that he is not working we are on a fixed income of social security and a pension that totals only $2336 a month. By the time we pay house note, light gas and water, etc, we only have $535 left at the end of the month for food, meds, Dr bills, etc. The wreck happened Dec 18, so now coming up in march I will be 3 months behind.
Soon, they will sue and get a judgement against us and will put a lien on our house according to the lawyer. We are depressed, sad, stressed and have no where to turn. We can’t sell our house and move because we couldn’t get enough from the sale to pay the debt off because so much work needs to be done on the house, but the creditors would take whatever we did get and then we would not have enough money left to get another place. If we give the house up in bankruptcy we would not have money to move. And not only that we can’t pack up and move, we are too old and have arthritis so bad that we cant move things.
Please help if you can so I will not lose my house. If you could help in anyway I would appreciate it so much.
Thank you so much!
Above is a picture of my eldest daughter’s 21st. I managed to buy 1 cool drink and a cheese cake, I couldn’t afford candles or gifts.
I am paying 370pw rent and 75 fn power and it leaves me with 400 a fn to feed and clothe my kids and pay all other nessisities of life, 3 days before my girls 21st my gas bottle ran out received the bill today $132, I received my water bill @$141 yesterday, and our hot water is on mains and I just received the bill for that $196.
My kids need clothes and shoes, I was blessed and found a $8 pair of shoes for myself ones without holes in them at the opp shop, unfortunately they don’t fit any of the kids otherwise I would have given the shoes to one of my kids. My step daughter has just started year 11 atar, her mum passed away in 2012 valentines day, and her dad is not in the picture and I can not afford the books or calculator for her, she’s doing mathematics methods, marine and marine, chemistry, physics, biology and English all atar courses, each course book cost between $80-$125 plus the calculator is over $200
I’m breaking under the stress, I have lupus, sjogrens, rhumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, anxiety, I’m a rape survivor, but most of all what I’m proud to be is I’m a mum to 3 (15,17 n 21) and step mum to 4 (their mum passed away in 2012 and dad made choices that means he no longer is around 9,10,16 n 18) and a step gramma to 1 (1) n a mum in law and a go to mum for many children, my doors are always open.
I’m in serious debt with a mobile phone company, with my car financial company because I just do not have the money to pay my payments, the guilt is killing me I have always managed to scrape through. I’ve recently moved 500kms away from a toxic town to better my children’s lives to give them more opportunities and a better education, and it’s been a life changing move for my kids they are blooming, I love it here I love the way my children have embraced the change. I’m getting less money and the rent is double and financially it’s suffocating me.
Because we are new to town the kids are still trying to find work once they do things will hopefully get easier, until then I would appreciate any financial help please and thank you from the depths of my heart and soul.
I’m writing this on behalf of my wife and I. neither of us really like asking for money but the next few months are putting us in some pretty bad straights. we’ve been trying to work on paying off our credit cards and other bills pretty steadily recently which has been made tough because my wife tuition for college has been taking up most of our extra income. however we’ve hit a situation that is going to make the next three months come pretty close to breaking us. her tuition payments for her last semester are going to be about 250-300 dollars more per month than we had been anticipating because of some extra classes she has to take and the fact that the college is only offering a 3 month payment plan instead of 4.
Until now we have been able to make all our payments and not ask for much help from family. Partly because our families aren’t in much position to help either. Her parents are trying to pay for a new house and my mother was fired from her job 2 years ago and had her income drop a lot because of it.
We have managed to try controlling our debt and had a plan for getting everything paid off in the next 3-5 years. This tuition issue however that fell into our laps this week is putting a lot of strain on us not just financially but emotionally as well. The tuition alone will now take up about a quarter of our monthly income even having slashed our grocery budget, our date night budget, and every where else we can try cutting money. We have been doing little things like using Mturk and other sites to get a little extra money but it’s not really enough to make a dent in what we need the next three months.
I know it’s a long shot but any help that anyone is willing to provide would be greatly appreciated. We’re hoping that one day soon we’ll be in a position to be offering the help to those who need a hand up. For anyone who read this thank you. And thank you in advance for anyone who is able and willing to help us out. We promise we won’t forget it and put it to good use getting her tuition paid and pay it forward as soon as we can
Hello, and thank you for reading. I am an educated, college grad who was working for the DOCC. Three years ago I left the work force to take care of my mom diagnosed with breast cancer. She passed away 01/04/2020, and her birthday was 02/02/2020. We held her final memorial on 02/01/2020. I have applied to various organizations, seeking to get back into the work force, unfortunately the pass years have been a struggle, and financially I have not been able to catch up.
My National grid is behind, cable, phone, everything. All of which I am struggling to keep. However the debt that I am facing from rent has been the most difficult to manage. I am seeking to have donated $3000 towards the back rent that has accumulated over time. I am scheduled for Court on the 20th of February.
I reside with my set of twins, and we have lived in our area since they were 5 years old. Throughout the time, and gradually as my mom’s illness worsened, work became less and less until nonexistence. I interviewed twice this week, just today. I can see over the horizon, as I have yet to lose faith. It is important to me to keep my twins in the district as they are in their last three year of school. the only district they’ve ever known. My mom resided with us up until her last days, and we’ve all been put through a test of time. I want to take the burden off of my twins, myself, and find some peace again. As my mother would say, “the new normal”. Family members have given what they could over time, however that tends to grow thin, particularly since my mom has passed. I’m not sure what type of individual responds let alone donates to funds like this, other than to think they are true gifts. Working in human services for over 25 years, I’ve always prided myself on the work that I did. The diverse populations that I’ve worked with has humbled me to know that there are all sorts of situations and circumstances in life, and that nor I am too good to be facing challenges. It certainly doesn’t come easy, asking for help. I’d dream of various scenarios that would simple wash things away. But they are just fantasy. When morning come, it’s all a reality again. I’ve loss so much over the years. Just about everything short of my mind these pass three months, and still I hang on. I wish my mom was still here. I think about her often, cried today, and manage to go on. A donation certainly wouldn’t bring her back, but somehow getting through this will lesson her loss a bit, and I’d know that cancer didn’t take everything from me.

Thank you for reading,
Hey guys! My name is Jackson. I’m a first-year university student at Western falling on some hard times and hoping for a little bit of help. Unfortunately, my parents have been unable to help contribute to my education due to raising 3 kids and not having the best of incomes (which I completely understand) and OSAP hasn’t been able to cover all my expenses for University and supplies. I work two part-time jobs on top of my full-time studies to help pay for my brother’s extracurriculars and my education and have tried cutting down on meals and packing my own lunch as well as commuting to school to help lower my costs. This has been enough to get me through my first semester.
This year has been very rough for me, my car has been damaged twice already and I’m afraid I won’t be able to pay for the damages after this second time around. The first time I had been parked all day at school and somehow someone had backed up into my car completely crushing the front fender. I never found out who had done it and the crash, unfortunately, pushed a quarter panel into my passenger side door which had to be repaired to allow it to open. Fortunately, my mechanic was very helpful and could reshape all the existing parts for under $1000. Most recently though I was making a left-hand turn at a stoplight when the light turned red. The car in front of me made a move to go forward but abruptly stopped in front of me. I, following too closely, rear-ended the car. Although the damage to my car and the other car was small the other driver has demanded I pay for the cost of a new bumper which he claims is another $800-$1200. I just don’t have the money right now, as my tuition for school was just due, and I’m genuinely scared of what’s going to happen. Any help would be so appreciated right now.
If anyone can help me out let me know! I would be so appreciative of you
I ran into issues with my finances from the holidays. Compounded with Veterans Affairs shenanigans, I find myself short on rent for this month.
My name is Brett Mills. I served in the military from 2012 to 2018. I’m terrified that I’m going to end up as another homeless Vet. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your considerations.

Currently I have a medical bill due from my primary physician. I received the bill in July, 2019 (see image) and have not been able to pay for it due to other bills and daycare. I am needing to see my primary physician (due to constant stomach complications) but they will not see me until this amount is paid in full. I hate begging for money but I have no clue what else to do.
Total amount due: $131.21 but any amount will help.

My name is Vicky, i am 30 years old and my daughter is called Verity. I am currently working as a manager at a mental health hospital, as well as studying part-time in Psychology Counselling. I am a very driven woman, and have always worked for everything i have which unfortunately is not a lot.
Myself and my daughter didn’t have the best start in life together. Her dad was very abusive, and we were stuck in that situation for a year before i plucked up the courage to get him arrested, and to get us out of that situation. Two years on and we are so much happier.
While we are happier, happiness can only stretch so far when you struggle with your finances. I work full-time for the NHS, and unfortunately the wages aren’t great for the work we do. When we left our old lives we weren’t classed as important enough to be given a home funded by the government, and so we went into private renting. Currently after rent and bills we are left with next to nothing to live on.
While most people enjoy material things i feel rich with a roof over my head, and that is always the most important thing for us. My overall goal is to get us out of this two bed flat, and into our own home with a mortgage.
Its very hard asking for help as i am a proud person, however, the time has come for me to suck up my pride and ask for donations towards a deposit for a house. Currently deposits are around £15,000-£20,000 which is an impossible amount for me.
I’m in no way asking for all of that, just whatever you can to help. Every penny will be greatly appreciated, and i will keep you updated on our journey.
Thank you so much.

My mom has been there for every success, every first step, every broken heart, every victory and every defeat. She’s the one I can alway count on.
When I was I fell off my bike she patched me up and gave me a hug and some candy to dry my tears.
When my wife left she came and took care of things and helped pick up the pieces that enabled me to move forward.
So last April when doctors found that her heart was failing and only pumping at 20% I helped her at home, took over bills and started working 12 hour days.
She’s almost completely blind with macular degeneration, has severe hearing loss but hearing aids are so far out of reach because medicare doesn’t cove and we are already trying to pay for a $100,000 pacemaker.
And now she has been diagnosed with cancer, every credit card is maxed, the maximum equity loan on the house that was paid off is at it’s limit and she can’t pay the note.
And now we have bills from urologists, oncologists, retinologists, surgeons, hospitals, cardiologists between making sure she takes her medicine and eats and trying to work in the midst of all this I have realized I can’t do more.
If I don’t pay for my car she doesn’t get to the doctor or get food and medicine.
And if she doesn’t get this loan payment caught up which she can’t because she lives on $1200 of Social Security and a $500 pension with debt collectors out for blood I don’t know where she will be able to live out her remaining years.
I just want her to not live her last days in fear and give her the comfort she always gave me when life crashed in around me. And it kills me I can’t do it for her…
Please if you have it to give, I know a lot is needed but I won’t take a penny past getting everything paid off for her, and if you won’t miss the money she needs it more than anyone I know.
I guess in a way it’s a selfish request because I feel like this is the last resort and if it doesn’t work I’ve failed her.
Either way please consider it and know in my life even after she’s gone I will pay it forward to anyone in need anytime I have extra money I can do without.
Thank you for reading and please pray for her.
Hi there. My name is Nikki. I thought I’d go out on a limb and see if this can help. I’m normally not the one to ask help but I feel like if I don’t do something quickly everything will continue to go downhill. I’m a 39 year-old mom. I take care of my mother as well as my brother. I do work hard as a nurse. Long story short, 2 years ago I had to fight my aunt for guardianship of my mother in another state. Although I’m happy to have my mother back, it did cause me some much financial stress. I had to hire two lawyers (which I’m still trying to pay off). At this present time, I feel like I’m drowning in debt. While my mom was in another state I had to take over her bills as well as pay for my own. She depends on me for paying her bills, upkeep of her home, and getting her to and from her appointments because she is wheelchair bound and doesn’t drive. Not only that, she’s not able to live by herself because she have a form of dementia. She is having to pay caregivers that can be with her three days a week while I’m at work. This expense is severely overwhelming because sometimes I have to pay them also because she does not make enough. Not to mention I still have my obligations at home. It’s not feasible to work more hours because the more I work the more she has to pay for caregivers. I’m literally in a catch-22. I don’t know what else to do. I had to move out of my apartment because I couldn’t carry two households. Right now I’m on the verge of selling my vehicle so I don’t have that stress every month. Ideally, I would love to be able to pay off her mortgage, which is about $260k but that would be impossible.
I am asking for a simple donation of $15-20k to pull myself out of debt enough to be able to help my mother on a monthly basis. If I can alleviate some of my financial burden I I can be of more help to her. I am pleading for the graciousness and generosity of an anonymous individual or individuals to please, please help lift my financial burden off of my shoulders. It would absolutely mean the world to me and would help me improve my mood, my self-esteem, and my confidence. I hope you can sympathize with me and choose me for a donation.
I would very much and greatly appreciate it. If you would consider it, my paypal link is paypal.me/NikkiOste. Thank you so much.
Hi everyone, my name is Steve and I am grateful that I have made it this far in obtaining my bachelors of science. These last four years have been hectic, but I am staying the course and now I am at the point where I am revving up my study time, work, preparing for my next step in life continuing my education in the health field. This semester has been tough on me with working as a private tutor to make ends meet and taking 21 credits at the same time so I can apply to graduate school this upcoming April.
The process begins in April which means schools will be having their deadlines approaching come summer time. I’d like to apply to PA(physicians assistant) school and obtain my masters doing a twenty four to twenty seven month program. I am capable of getting school down as I currently have above a 3.5 gpa but my problem is having the funds to pay for school.
I currently owe about $10,000 in which I need to have paid within the next month before I am charged about a 33% fee for it being late. This is my final semester and I need to pay this amount before I can obtain a official transcript. The school will withhold giving me a transcript and sending out a transcript to schools of my choosing until the balance is paid in full.
I am currently $40,000 in student loan debt and wasn’t eligible to receive anymore to pay for this final semester. I’d love it if you guys can help support me and get me over this obstacle to a better future for myself and become as successful as I feel I am destined to be. This is an opportunity for me to be the first person in my family to graduate from college which is a huge deal for me and my family because it’d make them feel like they did well raising me and it would make me feel amazing after accomplishing this deed. I would love to go further and obtain my masters then it’d bring joy not only to myself but to everyone who believed in me.
So I would appreciate any donations in helping me receive my transcripts from my university and moving forward applying to graduate programs all over the country which for out of state students the costs are out of this world and well into the six figures but I’m doing this one step at a time.

I’m calling upon any and everyone who can spare a buck or two for 2 amazing people in a grim situation.
J and M are longtime family friends who are more like my aunt and uncle and more like family than some blood relatives.
To paint a picture of who these lovely folks are: picture Lou Grant, but a little grumpier (but a total softie on the inside) and Betty White’s character on Golden Girls. He’s scruff and crusty and she is sweet and naive. They are real action friends. They have always helped out when one needs them to: moving, setting up and taking down my wedding, lending their truck to load hauls of you name it, etc. They truly outperformed any friend-duty expectations we could have when they cooked meals for our family and delivered them weekly while my mom was going through chemo, hospice, and continued 6 months after her death.
On January 21st, J underwent heart-bypass surgery but the doctors discovered he was a little worse-for-wear than they originally expected. They would have performed a quintuple-bypass if they had more time but after too many hours of J being under anesthetic, they had to resign to the triple-bypass being good enough. Plaque from his overly-clogged arteries broke off and entered his brain, causing mini-strokes. He’s on day 13 in ICU and has been taken off and put back on a ventilator to assist with breathing 4 times. He will receive a tracheotomy in the next few days to avoid having to re-intubate him again. J had hopes of being in the hospital for 10 days and being sent home, but doctors are thinking a few more weeks in the hospital and a few months in a full-time medical recovery facility is more realistic. The effects of the strokes are still unknown as they can’t differentiate what is confusion from all the opioids and general anesthesia that will wear off and what is permanent.
J & M are retired but work a few hours at a week at a local antique shop. They have been forced to quit due to the amount of time off work they’ll need to take.
They have endured so much hardship in their lives, from losing their daughter to Lupus at 28 to M having to go through chemo and a double-mastectomy for breast cancer over 10 years ago and STILL being buried in medical bills.
They deserve the world and I can only afford to give them my $1200 I have in savings.
I would love to help assist with their medical bills to help lighten the load of the most deserving people you’d ever meet.
Thank you for reading if you made it this far! Blessings to you.
To the Selfless individual who helps strangers:
I am a single mom with two kids. My son is 22 and my daughter is 13. I am also the caregiver to my elderly mother whom has health issues. Through the years I have always struggled financially, but never has it been this bad. In the past I’ve always managed to make things work. Since the New Year, that hasn’t been the case. I’ve tried to find a second job and applied at several places, but have not even gotten a call for an interview. My main goal in making this request is to alleviate some of the monthly financial burden as well as fund a trip to California in May to see my son graduate from Pomona College.
A little about my son, whom has made me one proud momma. He graduated #1 in his high school. He was part of a scholarship program called Quest Bridge that allowed him to be matched to the school of his choice with no debt upon graduation. He has a job lined up after graduation with Intuit in San Francisco. So to say I’m proud of him is a huge understatement. The way finances are at this time, I just do not see how I would be able to make that trip to watch him walk across that stage for the biggest accomplishment of his life thus far. It would be a huge deal for my son to have not only me there but also his sister and his grandmother (my elderly mom). We have always been a very close family, and my son will be the first grandchild to graduate from college for my mother. I’ve estimated this trip to cost roughly $3000.00, with travel from North Carolina, accommodations and food.
The other part of my request would be used to alleviate some of the monthly financial burden. In December I was informed that my pay would be garnished 15% due to a student loan in my name that defaulted. I immediately contacted them and was set up on a rehabilitation plan. However, they will continue to garnish my pay over $500 a month for the next 4 months while I’m making an additional payment in good faith. Once the 4 months are complete I can request the garnishment be lifted. Because of this garnishment bills are falling behind. I know if I had a little cushion to fall back on until the garnishment is lifted things would be a lot less stressful for me and everyone else in the house. My long term goal is to be able to buy a house and being able to stay above water and make payments on time will help build my credit score to accomplish that goal. I am currently paying for a washer and dryer that I got from Aaron’s. Eliminating that payment would save me almost $100 a month.
Hello, my name is Renee. My mother, our cat, and I have found ourselves in a very bad situation. After trusting my father again, even though he’s proven to us multiple times that he can’t be trusted, the three of us are living out of her 1999 Mazda.
It started three years ago when we were unfairly evicted after asking our landlord to fix a pipe that burst above our downstairs floor. It flooded everything on Christmas morning and we were without water for two weeks. We’ve been in limbo ever since, struggling to save after starting off with nothing. My father promised that we’d stay with a family member on my mother’s side for only six months, because he would fix it. It started out well with saving and working together, until my father took all of the money to fix a problem with his driver’s license. We were back at square one and things were getting bad at our family member’s home. We were unable to bathe because it was wasting too much water. We were unable to wash clothes, because there were rules for that. We were also forced to keep our cat inside of her kennel far too often. There were also rules as to when we left the house.
My mother tried to save what she could from what little she got a month, but at every turn there were car expenses, food costs, and other things that kept us having to start over multpile times. I wasn’t making enough to make up for what we had to use, and decided to look for employment elsewhere. Little did I know things were about to get worse.
Just before Thanksgiving my mother, our cat, and I had no choice but to leave our family member’s home. They finally decided to show us how much they never wanted us there and a huge argument happened that ended in us leaving. We haven’t spoken since. My father was determined now that it was certain we’d be sleeping in my mother’s car. He promised he would never let that happen, and put us up at a motel nearby.
However he soon decided it was better to bet what little money we had on football games instead of paying the owner and we were evicted yet again. He has been allowed to stay in another city with family like he has been since we were first evicted. While my mother and I have been staying out of her car with our cat due to tensions with her family and his. I don’t think they’re reconciling anytime soon. Were unable to afford a motel or hotel and getting a new job has been harder than I thought. She’s disabled and I would really love for she and our cat to have a warm place to be instead of sleeping in a cold car.
I’ve found a studio space that’s asking $475 a month and with the deposit it should be $750. It’s not in the best location, but hopefully I get hired somewhere soon and our stay there won’t be too long.
If there’s anything you could donate towards this $750, we’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
Hi, I’m Isaiah. I’m a 23 year old women. Most days I like to think I have my life together. I dont have many things but, the things I do have are nice. I worked really hard this year so I could finance a car new in October. I had to get a new car for my Drivers Test to get rid of my “N”. My test was set for January 17th. I went on a trip in December to see my family for the holidays. I spent new years in my hometown. New Years Day my tire popped and I had to replaced it. Everywhere was closed cause it was New Years Day and a Sunday and I ended up staying in a hotel room for the night. After I got it replaced I made my way home, but along the way I hit a moose. My face got all scratched up by glass from the windshield. My dog’s kennel broke because of the impact of the crash. My dog is fine and so is my cat but, I don’t remember the crash. I remember seeing the moose and everything went white. My brand new car is a write-off. I had to cancel my Drivers Test. My face has healed for the most part but, I am a bit sore. To be honest I didnt know a person life could change so fast. The place that I’ve been renting from for 3 years is a old house. Its a basement suite. The Heating, Water, and Power bills are crazy high for this winter. I have been paying them but, I’m now stuck in my overdraft and, my credit card is maxed out. I just received my Ambulance bill which is $600. My mom is helping me with the insurance half of things, and I know everything is getting worked out. I know everything is going to be ok. Honestly I’m stuck in my overdraft and it’s starting to feel impossible to pay off my credit card. I’m trying hard to stay positive about all of what’s going on. In truth everything sucks right now. My body hurts, I dont have work because I’ve been laid off for the winter season, I’m stuck at home because I don’t have a car yet, and all my bills are slowly consuming me. I know this sounds crazy but, $4000.00 is all I need to get out of my overdraft and pay back my credit card. Any amount would honestly help me so much right now.

First off let me introduce myself. My name is Cherie. I am a loving mom of three in a common-law relationship. In 2011, I was hit head on by an impaired driver.. As a result of that accident it has left me disabled more so physically than mentally all though some days my mental abilities can be a bit confused and foggy.
Over the years I have got myself into a situation of creating a lot of debt. Mostly for what I think is good intentions by helping others out when I knew that I couldn’t financially.
In 2018, I started taking out payday loans here and there as I wasn’t getting enough to cover my share of the bills.
My income currently is a disability benefit and the Child Benefit. Which is about $2800.00 a month. At the end of the month, I should have money left over but I don’t. I don’t want to disclose this to my husband as he also keeps giving me money every month. He is now starting to question what I have been doing with the money. I am so scared to let him know as he has helped me before to get out of debt. He has stated that he will leave me because I can’t save and just keep spending money.
With the payday loans it just started to add up. I would pay every thing off every month just to have to borrow again to pay my bills. Then I started to take out and installment loan to pay off the payday loans but then that just created more payments at the end of the month with me needing to borrow more money putting me deeper in the hole. This has been over a period of three years and I can’t get myself out!!
I just don’t understand why these companies allow you to keep taking money. They will even call over and over to let you know that you qualify for another loan increase. This is like hanging something that you really want but no you don’t need and should not take but I always end up caving creating more debt for myself.
For 2020 I would like to be able to set goals and budgets. I will admit that I need a financial advisor to guide me. Financial stress is probably contributing to overall pain in my body. I can sit here and wish that I didn’t do this to myself and write this to ask someone for their understanding and financial help, but in the end I am responsible for my actions. I would like to make 2020 a better year for myself financial and mentally.
Currently I owe:
Cash money installment loan of about $3500.00 Payments are $190.00/month
Cashmoney payday loan of about $400.00. Due at the end of the month.
Cash 4 You installment loan of about $3000.00 Payments are about $218.00/month
Cash 4 you payday loan of about $690.00 due at the end of the month
Icash payday loan of $115.00 due at the end of the month.
MegaMoneyMart loan of about $4000.00 Payment of $288.00/month
Capital one credit card $1500.00 with $30.00 average payment per month.
Canadian Tire credit card $2500 with a average payment of $90.00 per month
Desjardins credit card of 4450.00 with a average payment of $100.00 a month.
These credit cards are maxed. I used them to help me pay house hold bills, gas, Christmas presents, and groceries. I am currently starting to fall behind on my share of everyday bills to keep my home running. I am going to loose everything and.in the end it will be all my fault.
I am being so honest and truthful that as I am writing how much I am currently in debt it’s making me feel a shamed because there should be no reason for me to be in this financial situation.
Thanks for taking your time to read this. I really appreciate it!
Getting my life back together
I am 21 years old. I was in school to become a nurse I had to stop going to school because money and my job started taking over. I got a credit card that was supposed to be for emergencies only but it became what I relied on the most. I was paying the minimum payment on it for about 6 months then things at my job started to slow down to where I had 14-20 hours a week on my paychecks, which didn’t amount to much after my insurance and 401k was taken out. Since then I have missed 2 payments in my credit card and my credit score has taken a drastic hit. I received a loan from my bank for $500 I was going to use this this pay most of my credit card, but things were still slow at work and I needed to eat and put gas in my car and make utility payments. I am wanting to start back at school to continue my journey on being a nurse. Before I start back at school I would like to pay off my credit card and my bank loan. I would like to be debt free going into school that way I can completely focus on my classes and school work so that I can be the best student that I can be. All of these money issues have thought my a valuable lesson in how to handle my money, as well as how important it is to focus on saving money so that I do not end up in a stressful position like this again. My goal is pay off my debt and start my life again. I have hopes of being able to repay the favor to someone else in need. I know that I will be forever grateful to the kind person or people who help me out. Words will not be able to describe the weight that will be lifted off my shoulders that will allow me to turn my life around and prosper. I want to make a promise to the person or people that so graciously choose to help me out, that once I graduate nursing school and start my career I will come back here and pay it forward.
Thank you in advance to the person or people who help me out. The change that you will make in my life is unmeasurable.
Hello, first of all, English isn’t my first language, so sorry for the errors. I’m a 41 year-old mother who tries to help her sweet 15-year-old daughter. I will tell you my story: My daughter suffers from depression. This is something I learned recently in the worst way, when my daughter tried to take her life by taking many pills. Luckily I could stop her, and that is why I’m here now. She’s going to the psychologist and is slowly improving, but there is something (Or rather, someone) that makes her the happiest person. These people are VAV, a South Korean pop group. And yes, it may sound silly, but really those 7 boys make her the happiest person in the world just by singing songs, dancing and talking. One of the members is special to her; Jacob. My daughter always talks to me about him, about how much she loves him and how much she wishes to see him in person to tell him that he helped her overcome even her most difficult moments. Well, I never thought about the possibility of that group coming to our country, since we don’t usually get included in the tours, but it happened. VAV is coming to my country and my daughter is really very excited. On May 5 she turns 16, and I wanted to give her the ticket to go see VAV as an advance gift, but it’s a lot of money to me. When I told my daughter the situation, she started crying in frustration and locked herself in her room without telling me anything else. Two weeks have passed since that time, and every single day I heard her crying at night. Once I heard her praying, asking that me please have enough money to buy her the ticket or at least she get a job to be able to pay for it herself. The ticket I want to buy costs $ 148.5 (including taxes), with this my daughter will be able to see her beloved Jacob, talk to him and take a photo with him, something that will surely make her too happy. (150 dollars may not sound too money, but in my country it costs more than half of a minimum wage). Please help me fulfill her dream. All I want is for my daughter to be happy, even if it’s only a few hours. I want to see her smile, crying of happiness and I want her to tell me how beautiful her favorite group looked in person.

Hello, I’m a mother of 2 in need of financial assistance please. I have been laid off from my full time job since October 2019. Since then I have fallen behind on my mortgage and If I do not catch up. Foreclosure will be the next step. I have been doing perdiem work for another employer. Continue to look for something more steady. Please help me catch up and save my family’s home. Thank you so much.
A year ago I had to withdraw during the summer semester from my Univeristy to help take care of my mother who had recently had surgery. Since my school does not take financial aid in the summer I had no source of aid besides my own paycheck to cover any costs resulting in me not being able to pay the rest of what I owed when I withdrew. Since I owe money to the school I cannot go back or transfer any where else because my transcripts are now locked. My mom and I live paycheck to paycheck now that shes not able to work as often and theres really no way for me to get back into school without any kind of help. I just want be able to finish my education and have a career. I need $5000 but of course when you have no money any amount helps
Thank you for any donation you can make
I would like to explain my life, and the recent events that have come within the last few years. I have come to the conclusion that I need and my oldest daughter needs real ‘paid by the hour’ counselor to help us through this hard time. I have been through a lot, but nothing could prepare me for the ‘now’.
I personally have had a very hard life, I never really had much of a childhood because my mother was only 16, and she chose to leave to to stranger’s all my childhood. Not with my real family, I did not know why until I was an adult long after her tragic death. I was left to pimps, drug dealers, and anyone who would take me until I was 9 years old, i changed schools often. At 9 my mom was caught for welfare fraud and i was given the option to move back in with her, I chose my mom. That went sour quickly, her new boyfriend hated me, and my new stepbrother liked me a little too much. I started living on the streets of Toronto, but still went to school daily until inwas banned from going to high school due to my mom stopped paying taxes for me. I tried to go into a group home but was jumped by 6 girls only because I was not ugly, I quickly left and lived on the run from a truancy warrant for many years. I worked odd jobs and panhandled to survive. At 16 I had my first child, my only son, that I chose to give up for adoption because I was so young. I never got into drugs or drinking, I was on the streets only to outrun my mom’s life choices of doing drugs. At 18 I had my second child, my oldest daughter. Her father was only a year and a half older then me but he was very physically abusive towards me. He was the same father as my son. I went back to school. My oldest daughter told her teacher that her father was sexually abising her, so I took full custody becaus the police sent 2 male officers instead of a female, my oldest daughter was only 5 and would not talk and shut down for years because of it. This gave her father the power of denial.
I moved on with a different man, we had my thirst child, my youngest daughter. He kept a secret from me that his ex took his son and ran away, he tried taking my daughter when she was 3 years old he was making up stories about me, but I had legal rights and our friends saw through his stories as lies. He lost a lot of friends because of this. He had started drinking since she was born and was a different person, he was angry, but only towards me. I strongly feel I paid for what his ex did to him. When my youngest daughter turned 12 years old he disappeared with my youngest daughter and everything I own from my condo that they threw me out of. The police told me I could charge my child with stealing everything I own, but I could do that to her. I could not even take her father to court again because I had no address to serve him at.
I found out why my mother became what she did when my step-grandfather got dementia and told on himself. When he got dementia I was called to help him because his deranged newish wife had him sign his life over to a lawyer and all his money had disappeared and he was living in a home alone with no electricity in the middle of winter. I stepped in and saved my step-grandfather. At first he was being very verbally flirtatious with me calling me my moms name. Then he started calling my youngest daughter my mom’s name, trying to manipulate me into thinking she is bad and needs to be grounded for doing cartwheels, and then full out proposal to my daughter to molest her in the bedroom. I removed him from my home immediately and put him in a hospital until he was put in a retirement home to protect my child. I then heard from her friends that this was true and my mom swore them to secretly. I found out my grandmother made the choice when my mom was 13 to put her in a home for disturbed children in Nova Scotia and moved her 2 other son back to Ontario. This was done because my mom told my grandmother that her stepfather was molesting her. This was a secret kept for over 50 years until my step-grandfather got dementia and told. When his sister asked him about it he said “shhhhh, it is supposed to be a secret”, and refused to speak about it again.
When my oldest daughter turned 17 she pushed to be in her real father’s life, she didnt remember what happened to her. I tried to warn my oldest daughter, but she met him and his mom, who she missed most, her grandmother on his side since mine passed away so suddenly. Her real father manipulated her badly, convinced her that he wasnt the person that molested her, that it was my youngest daughters father, which was not true. He came into her life after that happened to her. My oldest daughter’s father started giving her alcohol and after a few years he finally raped her at 22 years old, she is now 23 years old and we are in the middle of court proceedings. He got bail because he had no priors, he has stalked her and got out on bail again.
My oldest daughter fell apart completely. I have tried so hard to help her, but public counseling is horrible and private counseling is extremely expensive. I am asking if you could donate money to help my oldest daughter and myself go to ongoing counseling which is about $200 each an hour. I would like to be able to set up continuous counseling for the both of us for the next year once a week which is $400 a week, which adds up to just over $20,000 in a year. Please help us help ourselves.
Of you are curious, I got my mom off off drugs, she quit for my kids when I was 25 years old. I was very proud of her. But she had a schizophrenic boyfriend. She fell off the 6th floor balcony a day before she was moving into a house with him, I think he threw her to be honest. Then a year a half later she was walking again, doing good, was at my place playing with my 2 daughter’s. 2 days later she wasnt breathing and her class act of a boyfriend took off for a few weeks. I have a good feeling he smothered her to death, it was never really investigated.
Me, I went back to school when my oldest was born, and i graduated with Honors in English. I also went to college for glass art kiln-casting when my youngest was born, I am rather good at it too. Art has really helped me get through my life. I currently work in Production Locations. I try hard but I can only afford to get by. My oldest daughter is now living with me again, and she tries to work, but sometimes has a hard time leaving the house. Myself, I have hit a major depression, like nothing has ever gone right for me, like I live a cursed life that has no future, or least that is what life looks like right now. I am hoping with real counseling I can change everything I need to change to be happy and live for tomorrow, instead of being stuck in yesterday’s.
