First and foremost thank you for taking the time to read my story and consideration to helping me. I’m a very prideful person and refuse to play the victim because I feel that would mean that the person who hurt me will win. Unfortunately, I have no other options other than to ask for help. This past year has been one road block after another. I am a single mom and one of my boys is autistic and epileptic. So, here is a little back story. I had been a single mom for 6 years and I finally decided to try dating and met my ex through mutual friends. Everything was great at the beginning and he seemed to be everything I wanted in a partner then the verbal abuse started and it wasn’t soon after the physical abuse began. He never did anything in front of my kids but he started to austrasize from my friends and family then slowly I felt so alone and I had nobody to turn to about the problems. Eventually I decided to make the break which seemed to go smoothly until he asked me to drop his belongings off to him. I pulled into his driveway rolled down passenger window down and went to hand him his stuff when he jumped into my car and got my keys and began to hit me. He drug me from the car and took me to his bathroom where he locked me in there for 2 hours. I eventually acted like I was fine and he let me out he made me a drink and food and shortly after I don’t remember anything and when I woke up he had a gun and a knife asking me if I was ready to go swimming. He started hitting me and I tried to calm down enough and I asked if we could stop so I could get a drink. After begging he stopped and I was able to run into the McDonald’s where I called the cops. After him being arrested they finally found my car it was beyond repair and that’s when my world crumbled. I got covid and was out of work eventually getting behind on my bills. I lost my job and then lost my home. I let my boys go live with their dad which was the hardest decision ever and now an action I regret because they were my purpose. I am asking for help to get a vehicle because I am staying with a friend and they live in rural area which makes it extremely hard to find a job because there is no public transportation available. I have had several jobs but end up having to quit because my rides become undependable. I need $2000 to get a decent car and then I will be able to work and get me a place of my own and get my babies back. I am steal healing from the domestic violence situation and doing my best to stay positive. The small rural community I live in has limited resources and it makes it very difficult to get on my feet. With my own vehicle I will be able to get myself to and from work not be dependent on anyone but myself which will be such a huge accomplishment for me. I want to be the strong independent few spirited woman and mother I once was. I made it through and therefore I feel like I have a purpose and I just need a little help to get my on my feet. In all of this I want to show my kids that bad things will happen but that we are all capable of overcoming what was meant to kill us. Thank you so much and any donations would help me so much.
