I was a fool and struggled with a man for 7 years because I thought he would eventually get counselling and be the man I thought he was. I was wrong. He became very involved in illegal activities and eventually started abusing me (even as far as pushing me out of my vehicle and trying to run me over, then stole everything I had while I was trying to make an honest living by working 6-7 days a week at 9-13 hours per day. I was stuck in co-dependency and feel so foolish for allowing this to happen to me.
I tried to contact his family to help him, and they pinned the blame on me. His mother even said I probably hit him first and only his sister (who I raised from age 11) believed me as she saw first hand the damage and pain I was enduring. I had built this entire life up just for it to be thrown out in a matter of 3 months draining my bank account and savings.
His sister is now 19 years old, and also in an abusive situation in which I want to take her with me when I start fresh so she can begin her life much earlier than I was able to. I feel obligated to help her. I do not drink, party or spend my money foolishly.
I feel humiliation in even begging for help like this but I need to move and begin a new life. I need help paying my loan payments, credit card payments and to help me move to a different city to start fresh. I work hard, I am a loving mother but I just cannot seem to get ahead and I refuse to do anything illegal to obtain the money I am seeking. Even if I have to pay it back to my donar, I will find a way to through monthly payments and budgeting.
I need someone to take a chance on me please. I am a great conversationalist, I can email back and forth, I will write a letter explaining my situation further. Whatever is needed of me, unless it is humiliating or illegal. I just want to get a good start on providing the best life I can for my son, my (informally adopted) little sister and my two cats.
Please, I will take any help I can. Thank you in advance.
