Hello and thank you to whoever reads,
I don’t normally put myself out there or ask others for help, but I’m struggling in life. I’m a quiet person who’s about to enter my third and last year of college in September. At first, I never thought I could go to school because of my learning disability, but now I am the first in my working-class family to attend college.
I have worked really hard to try and change my life. I have tried many routes (including the unemployment help centre). We have always struggled financially. I live in the middle of nowhere. There are no grocery stores or jobs.
I use to be able to walk to my job after school, but now school is online, I have been laid off, and cannot drive. It feels like I have been stuck in an endless loop in life for quite some time and no matter how hard I work, I cannot get out.
I can’t get a job because of my location. I cannot drive because I have no one to teach me. I cannot afford a vehicle or a taxi. I live in an unstable house, which I have been trying to leave! I have a precious cat who is my support and family. Prices for housing in the city have skyrocketed and the average job does not afford this, let alone basic needs. Even if I managed to save up for an apartment, I couldn’t afford the rent. I also don’t have credit because I have never made enough for anything.
The prices for mental health help such as therapy and medication are also unaffordable. I won’t go into detail but this is something that greatly impacts my life. I have always struggled with being accepted by my community as I am part of a minority.
Going to School was the last route for me when it comes to fighting for a peek at happiness. I thought it could get me out of this cycle and a chance. But here I am with the same issues and now a large debt. I’m honestly terrified for my future and the debt I will have to pay back when my final study year ends.
The file I added shows briefly that I have loans for school. I blanked out any personal information as safety is important to me.
My Paypal link is below. Honestly, I’m grateful for any amount! Even a dollar.
Sincerely – just a human tired of just surviving
Here’s a photo of my cat tucked into my bed for compensation for reading my long post. She’s the sweetest and sassiest lady. I apologize for any inconvenience!
