When I moved in with my sister and her boyfriend a year ago everything was fine. We didn’t have much but food was kept on the table and the rent was always paid on time. Over time though things changed drastically. My sister struggled to find decent work so her boyfriend became the main breadwinner which he wasn’t a fan of because, and these are his words, “I just want to play video games and hang out with friends. I’m tired of working.” Now at first, I was fairly sympathetic because his job wasn’t the easiest and he worked 12 hours shifts 3-4 days a week but over time it got frustrating because whether he lived alone or with someone else his situation wouldn’t change. I kept quiet because at the time I wasn’t working because my “job” was to be the dog sitter and maid, plus the way I was raised (I was raised to believe that if you weren’t helping out financially, you didn’t have an opinion). Now we are in July a year later and my sister is no longer in a relationship with him but due to financial reasons, we still lived together. I now have a job as does my sister and he still has the same job. He recently started dating someone else but promised my sister and me that he wouldn’t leave until we were alright financially to live with just the two of us. He promised that last night but has since redacted that statement and will now be moving in with his new girlfriend this following week and now my sister and I stand to lose not just our only car, but our apartment. We, unfortunately, live in a town where the minimum wage is very little (less than $10) and with both of our jobs, we only make $1600 a month. Now that may seem like enough until you consider bills. Rent is $850 and the car plus insurance is almost if not $600. Plus food and electricity, it doesn’t look good for us at all. My sister is at her wit’s end, the stress of everything is taking a heavy toll on her. She even passed out yesterday! Neither of us has been eating and have been continuously feeling sick due to stress and lack of sleep. What little family we have aren’t willing to help us because, and I quote, “we have our own lives.” Please help us, please.
