Hello to anyone and everyone reading this post. First off, I have to apologize for the discretion of this post (no photos) for maybe not so obvious reasons, but reasons more than enough to be discreet about myself. I am a single mom of one and I have been trying to move from NY to another state for many years(11 to be exact). I have finally racked up enough money to move. I rented a car to drive out to my new destination to check out some apartments and got pre-approved for one that I like and would be safe for my daughter and I. For the vehicle I rented, I had to return it that day (not the reason why my funds depleted) and my parents decided to drive out to me to return home to wait for a response from the realty on whether I had an apartment or not -I DID NOT WANT THEM TO. I would have gladly extended the rental. On the way home, my sister calls my mom needing $50 that, of course, no one had…but me (disgruntled but no harm done). Then my mom explains that she and my dad have run out of money for gas and food to get home-
-Let me explain why this became a problem. While the family car only runs on $20 dollars gas, it goes through it quickly and we were practically a day away from home. I saved enough money to get to where I needed to get to, stay for a day, and then return home–with my rental–which would have cost less extending the hold than them coming to me, which was also part of my funds for moving-
Well, I had my little one with me, so we had to get home. Gas was no problem…as long as they paid me back to keep my funds up for my move. Don’t get me wrong, if it weren’t for the move, I would have been more than helpful. I’m very generous and would spend my last dime to help my family as they have helped me (not financially, just with my little one). But this time, I had to be selfish and with a budget, frugality had to be my middle name. I was only thinking about my little one and moving and freedom. Here is where things get awry. On the way home, the car stalls out on the I85 N in North Carolina -8 hours away from home. A trooper helps us to get our car towed to the nearest auto repair and to a hotel for the night. Bye bye money.
Now the realty has called me and informed me that I have gotten the apartment. I only have two weeks to sign the lease! My new life is only a few funds away. All I need to do is get there. Please help me. I don’t want to ask my family for help because it always ends up like this, which is why I didn’t want their help in the first place.
I don’t like asking for help. I would have ruined my credit and taken out a loan before I posted this, but I cannot get a loan because someone has used my identity -I know who- to ruin me–which is why I am a single mother. But that is another story. I only ask because as a last resort, with no one else to turn to, I need to get away from this life for the sake of my little one. I cannot consider help from people who need me to help them and I know they won’t help me when I need it because they are not now. So I am begging. Anyone who is reading this…please help.
My starting point – $3000
My ending point – $600—yep that’s right. – My leftover for when I was supposed to be in my destination
Need -$2000-$2400 to get us to our new life. Please help us if you can. I realize everyone works hard for their money and I have no right to ask. But I am not homeless. I was on my way to a new life – WITH MY HARD EARNED MONEY-until my family got involved. My back is against the wall and if there were ANY other way other than whoring myself off to the nearest pimp, I would do it. So now, I am here. Every little bit helps. Ask me anything you need to to confirm my hardship.
