I urgently need £500 pounds to pay the rent. I was recently sacked from my job and was suspended for two months previous to that for standing up to the management for being homophobic. The situation left me stressed and anxious and I have subsequently been diagnosed as suffering from clinical depression.
During the two months that I was suspended I received no money as I just simply had all my hours removed from the rota. I borrowed money to survive during this period from family and friends, but feel too ashamed to ask them for anymore as I know they gave me all that they could. If I do not pay the rent for this month I will find myself homeless and have never felt so scared and desperate. I feel suicidal often.
If I can pay the rent this month I will receive help paying the rent from the council next month, which will help me get back to living a ‘normal’ life where I can search for work properly and feel like a worthwile human being again.
I appreciate how hard people are working for their money, and how difficult times are at the moment. Therefore any contribution would be received very gratefully, and it would be humbling to know that there are kind and compassionate strangers in this world.
If I get through this low point in my life, I will dedicate the rest of it to helping those in similar difficulties, both financially and through my deeds and actions.
