I can’t work due to the virus. I’m a video editor but I cannot make ends meet at all with freelance video editing. Its very inconsistent work. At the minute I’m getting £40 a week (around $50) and it just isn’t enough. I don’t know what else to do honestly. I’m about to get my degree for Film and TV production, but because I’m at high risk I can’t go out to work. My family is poor. They can’t afford for me to come back home. I just want to stay afloat. I don’t want to continually let my partner down. It feels like the world has just turned against me. I hate feeling like this but the more time I spend in this damn flat, the worse it seems. And my only hope is for a vaccine, even if the lockdown is lifted.
I will honestly be forever grateful, I must be desperate because I found this website after searching for ways to make money. Maybe I’ll start learning the stock market or something (although I’m pretty much mathematically illiterate.) If anyone donates it will just go to rent and food. I’m sick of letting my partner down. She tries her hardest for me and she might be out of a job soon too. Although if she goes back to work we’re both at risk again.
I don’t think I’ve ever sunk this low to cast out a lifeline on the internet to ask strangers for money. I’m feeling very bad about myself. I want to be the best I can for my partner. I’m trying so hard. I really hate where I am right now I feel absolutely helpless and it sucks. I’m really struggling to find options to fight against it, to pull my self up. I’ll figure it out eventually I’m sure, but for now it’s like I’m ramming my head into a brick wall. Nothing seems to be working.
It took a lot to get me to university and at the end of it I was supposed to be out in the world working 14 hour shifts doing what I love. But I can’ now because of this damn virus. I’m stuck here, in front of this computer, looking at the internet and hoping that something will let me earn a living. If you can spare something it would be absolutely amazing. It will help me while I’m in this awful position. If you can justify it,thank you. Thank you for reading my sob story and I hope you have a nice day! Stay safe!
