3 months ago, I caught my best friend and fiancé in bed together, in the house we shared. I found out it had been going on for months. They both moved out, which has left me to cover £800 of rent and bills.
Not only am I unable to afford my rent, but I lost my best friend, someone I’ve known for over 8 years, someone who has been by my side through every single hard time, just as I had been for her. Not only did I lose her, but she turned everyone against me. She twisted the story, made me look like the bad guy and made every single friend I had completely cut me out of their lives.
I also lost the love of my life. I thought he was perfect, and I never thought he would have done that to me, but after 6 years I obviously did not know him as well as I thought.
I’ve been left heartbroken, alone, and skint. I am now on the verge of being homeless.
I managed to find a new roommate who is moving in in August, but due to having to cover £800 of rent and bills by myself I now have no money to cover next months’ rent. I am unemployed as I am a university student and, despite applying to hundreds of jobs, no one will hire me because I can’t work whatever hours they want. I am also limited in the kinds of jobs I can apply for because I’m disabled.
I get my next student finance payment at the end of September so after that I’ll be able to live comfortably again, but at the moment I have no way to pay my rent and no way to make any money. I’ve tried everything from paid survey sites to selling my possessions but so far have only managed to make £30 by selling my fridge, and £5 through surveys, which is just enough to cover my shopping for the next few weeks. The past couple of weeks I’ve been living off soup, reduced foods, and bread, so every penny I have is saved up to buy this stuff.
I have nothing of value to sell, no other way to make money, no other way to turn. I have no particular marketable skills, or at least nothing that is immediately profitable.
I am in desperate need of money and I have nowhere else to go. I have no family to ask, no other friends. No one.
Please help me.
