Hello My Angel/Hero!
I hope all is well with you and your family. First, thank you for taking the time out of your life to read my request/begging for help. I know everyone is going through something in life that is not perfect. Just the fact that you are reading this now says so much about your kindness and empathy. Again, thank you!
I stumbled across this website when looking for some type of way to get out of the desperate situation I’m in right now. I will tell you now that I am not perfect. I am a humble yet strong mother. I am clean and sober while continuously working on being my best self. Because of all my past mistakes (life lessons), I now love myself despite of all my flaws. My heart is good and I have helped people when they’ve needed help. I help when I can now. I learned to forgive people who have hurt me as well as myself. Also, I have suffered many losses and can not seem to get out of this hole I’m in now. Since the recent loss of the lovely women in my life (my grandmother, my mother, my aunt and my sister) all in the last two years, I have not been the same. However, supporting them while witnessing their health deteriorate over the last few years was more devastating to me than anything. Being strong for them as they dealt with the after affects of chronic diseases that cause amputations, strokes, mental illness, dialysis, dementia, multiple various surgeries, long hospital stays, rehabilitation with different therapies, and so forth, was just what I did. As well as dealing with the not so pleasant dynamics of them not having their affairs in order prior to death. Disrespectful, greedy family members (and so called friends) demonstrated so much hatred for me and the legacy of these super strong females that I loved very much.
The story gets deeper. In the last two years, I have also lost my home and had to sell my car. The basic necessities of life in this world. I am a single mother of two wonderful children. My beautiful daughter is 16 and doing well in school. I am very proud of her! My son is autistic and will be 15 in July. He is so awesome and smart in such a different way! He has taught me more than I have taught him. Both of them give me the strength to keep going despite feeling so much heartache and pain. Right now, my ex husband makes a better income than I do so he has physical custody of the children with us sharing joint legal custody. For a few years, I went through a long and painful divorce/custody battle. My greatest battle I have ever lost. My heart was so broken from losing that fight that I survived a heart attack and stent placement surgery in 2013. But during that fight, those strong women helped me every step of the way!
If I can just get back on my feet, I can get back to being the mom I need to be for them. I am staying in temporary housing that I have been in since July 2017. It’s not the best conditions or in the best of areas, but I am grateful for a roof over my head. I am considered to be homeless because I have no lease. I have asked for help from so many resources in my area, but I was finally told in order to get help I would need to go to a homeless shelter when a spot was available to get assistance. I would lose my things and my job. And most of my pay goes to have a weekly room for $175 every week. I do work full time, walk to work and pay child support for my children. My job doesn’t pay much, but it keeps me productive while interacting with people who are making it in this world. It keeps me feeling independent.
I just could use a little help paying my back storage fees and a payday loan balance. Copies are included and posted. Would you please help change my life and the lives of my children in a beautiful way! My goal is to pay off my back storage fees which are now late and higher due to late fees accumulating monthly. I have 2 units with all of our belongings in them. I am making payments on a payday loan. I owe a personal loan to a friend ($400) for helping me save my storage units from going to auction. The loans helped me save our things. I need a dependable and reliable car to be able to do side jobs like instacart, Uber/Lyft or find another option to make more money. I got to hustle more. Finally, I need a place for us to stay. I found a place online for sale that looks nice and clean. A condo with 3 bedrooms in a decent neighborhood. My monthly payment could be $345 instead of $700 for a room. If I don’t raise enough for that, I will rent something to move in as soon as possible. I’m missing feeling normal.
Lastly, this would be the best gift ever for me and my kids. I have no one else to ask and nowhere to go. Please help me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time and any help you can provide! I will make miracles happen with anything. May God bless you!
Sincere love and blessings to you!
