Hi, my name is Marisa, I am 32 years old. I’ve been on my own since I was 12 years old, when my mother first got arrested. I was doing ok for a while, I went to college, was going down the right path, yet I’m still struggling and cant even make ends meet. Keeping my apartment has been a struggle the last few months. My mother is finally clean after being on drugs for as long as I can remember. She is currently living in a homeless shelter, and is unable to help me in any way. I’ve been so close to giving up, and I truly believe that there are good people out there who are capable of helping and willing to. I came across this site and figured it may be worth it to give it a shot. I’m not looking for help to go shopping, or for any materialistic reasons. I need help with paying my rent and my bills. Rent is most important because I dont want to end up homeless, one of my biggest fears. In addition to having a hard time keeping my apartment, my insurance is not covering 3 root canals that I’ve needed for a while now. I dont want to lose any of my teeth, I am too young. I am hoping that by the Grace of God and by some miracle, someone who might care, who would be willing to help another person in need may actually exist. I feel that this is a far fetched and even humiliating way of seeking help, but at this point I have nothing to lose, yet everything to lose at the same time. I believe in the act of giving and wish I was in the position to help others. I was always a very generous person, when I was able to be, and even when I’m not able to be I still try and understand that there are people who have less than I do, as little as I do have. Who knows, maybe it’s an opportunity to even meet someone great, someone who can do more than just help financially, but who can be an ear to listen and a shoulder to lean on. Sometimes it’s the smallest things in life that have the greatest impact. I have never been on this site before and came across it for the first time today. I am willing to give it a shot and hope that there will be someone out there who will come across this ad and be willing to help. I have to somehow make up my rent by today. Ive been struggling with my utilities, at the moment I am barely holding onto keeping the electric on. Everything else has been shut off. I am hoping someone, anyone can help. It would be more appreciated than you will ever know. I am a firm believer in karma, and I truly believe that every act of kindness gets returned tenfold, and vice versa. We are all on this Earth for a reason, and more connected than we will probably ever know, in this lifetime at least. For anyone willing to help, words cannot do justice for the impact it will have on my life. I wouldnt be able to thank you enough. I am adding my paypal link, which the website suggests, and hoping for a miracle. . Thank you to anyone willing to take their time out to listen/read this, and thank you to anyone willing to help. It would never be forgotten.
