When I was fifteen years old I moved out of my mother’s house into my fathers. August of 2016 At the time he had been on probation for six years and his full probation was seven years. When he got out he started drinking again and stopped working because of how bad he got, he spent all his money on drugs and alcohol and did not feed me. He sexually assaulted me and my friend to the day children youth services came to get me and take me away back to my moms. I was okay with it because i love my mom and did not want to move in the first place. On January 28th 2019, I found my mother dead in her room on her bed. At the time I was watching my baby brother and figured she was just sleeping in because she needed it. Turns out she accidentally overdosed on prescription pills from forgetting she already took her medicine and took it again. She left behind me, her daughter and her 3 sons. My mother, and my best friend being dead broke my heart as it, but finding her ruined me mentally and emotionally. I have severe anxiety even before that situation and it has only gotten worse. I have depression but it is not as severe as my anxiety. I am starting college soon and i have no parents by my side to support me emotionally or with bills and expenses I will have for college. I plan on applying for as many scholarships as I can but those aren’t promised and that doesn’t help me pay for food, bills at home.
I need help. I have a job but it nearly isn’t enough to keep up with payments and I know someone else who went to the same college for the same major and they are browning in debt. I want a good like, not a life where I work to pay back the money, my whole life. Any amount will help, it adds up trust me, especially when you have nothing. Thank you so much for taking your time to read this, and if you do donate, thank you for helping and supporting me reach my dream. Never in a million years would I think I would ever have to take this path, but I also imagined a life with both my parents. Again, thank you.
