Hello my name is Cheryl. I’m 62 years old, I have PTSD, depression and anxiety, All documented and diagnosed. I have been in an abusive marriage for 23 years. Most of those 23 years I lived in denial, quietly living in fear, always making excuses for everything, so nobody would know what was really going on. Living with an abusive, manipulating narcissist was never easy, but leaving would be devastating or worse. I tried so many times to find a way out… he always convinced me things would change and I wanted so badly to believe that. Never worked. (sounds classic doesn’t it)
In June of this year, I had a complete breakdown, I’m not sure who I was or where the courage came from, but I have had enough and told him I was going to call the police if he didn’t leave. I begged and pleaded him to leave and explained if he didn’t… I would! This time I MEANT IT ! He left, got himself an apartment and said he would continue to help me with my bills. HE LIED…AGAIN !!! He thinks if he withholds money, he wins and I’ll fail. I’m not going to let that happen ever, ever again.
It’s sad, that in order to save my life, I have to completely destroy my life and start over when I should be retiring.
He took the one vehicle we had. I’m trying to get a job, but with the world in this pandemic, no transportation and my age, my chances are lower than most. I won’t give up…in fact, I’m just getting started. I just need a little hand UP for a short period of time. I’m asking for rent money and I promise you it will only be used for that. My monthly rent is $805.00 per month. Please help me get my life back track. Thank you in advance…Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
