Hi, I don’t do this.. I’ve never done this, but right now I am so lost on what to do and I know there is kindness in strangers.
Do you ever just have a spiral of bad luck? I wont give a sob story but I’ll give a story, hopefully not too boring.
So July 2021 my best friend and support of 12 years passed away a beautiful golden short hair German shepherd, in 2017 I met someone and was able to give her the family I always wanted her to have. In December 2021 I introduced a new member into the family so the kids could grow up always having a best friend. Buddy the german shepherd.
We had our ups and down as a family but over 4 years I raised my partners little girl from 6 months old and we had our own daughter (born on my birthday!). Due to bad mental health ranging from many things my partner felt it best to part ways atleast for awhile. This was 6 months ago.
From my old dog passing and my partner leaving nothing has gone right.
●The car I had on finance was no longer affordable, nothing but problems between the company, it’s now with financial ombudsman about multiple ignored complaints at the start of the contract.
● Since my partner left this property I’ve been told I’m unable to carry on the tenancy and will be relocated to a smaller flat. (She has already moved house and from the 19th September 2022 the rent here is in my name and it is just not affordable)
● I have not been sleeping well and have been late for work multiple times reducing my actual income (I’m lucky it’s my dads business or I probably wouldn’t even have a job right now)
● A couple of weeks ago my washer broke and flooded the kitchen.
●A few days after the glass on my oven shattered, already without a working grill, I can now only use the hob, but struggle to find foods my almost 2 year old daughter will eat done in a pan haha
● My car finance imobilised my car for missed payments about a month ago. On the 25 sept 2022 I cancelled the insurance on the 26 sept 2022 they were meant to pick it up, on the 28 sept 2022 the cars down the street had been brutally vandalised. I have no clue where i stand with this right now, awaiting response from finance company.
●I’m pretty sure I’m depressed and cant handle much more tbh I dont really want to go back there but it just seems that absolutely everything is money.
Its mine and my daughters birthday on the 17th October and I feel so ashamed in myself that I cant afford to treat her. I live in hull and we have the biggest travelling fun fair in Europe meet up here for 1 week, I cant afford to take her there next week. I am still good with my ex partner I still love her and her daughter just as much as my own and I’m struggling to help and support them how I should be able too.
Buddy the dog, the most cuddly nicest dog ever. Destroys anything and everything while I’m at work, everyday since my partner left as she was always home during the days. The last thing I want to do is get rid of him I’ve never gone that route and after much fighting off the thought. Coming home every single day to carnage is not doing my mental any favours. Honestly there will be nothing for him! And he’ll find something! I know leaving him isnt fair on him and I just want the best solution which could be another family to love him like he deserves but I hate been alone haha!
I’m so lost with everything! So much on my mind I cant prioritise anything.
I forgot what I was writing about, felt good to get some things out haha.
I dont know what to expect but long story short I am struggling so much right now and anything and everything will be appreciated and put to good use be it on my daughter, new flat and utilities or helping ease the cost of what I have coming from the finance company and the repairs. Hopefully the financial ombudsman can help there as I should never have been sold the car on my limit as soon as my partner left it become unaffordable real quick.
Anyway I hope it wasnt too boring. I appreciate everyone here. Thanks for reading.
