Hello everyone. First, I want to say that this is embarrassing. I never thought I would land here but this is out of my control.
The whole saga begins about a year ago when my girlfriend was finishing up her studies to become an engineer.. It was almost certain she would get a job right away when she was done. She started applying for jobs suitable for her, but nobody replied, and the months went. I then decided to move to another region in Sweden to try our luck there because it is swarming with constructions. But still no replies on applications or anything. The pandemic didn’t make it easier. My girlfriend became depressed from this. She is very anxious and worries a lot about money. I want her to feel that we can make it until she gets a job. But it does not look good, and we had a couple of rough months in January and February that almost ended with her ending her life. To calm her I took a big loan so we could buy stuff for our apartment and buy her clothes, so she does not need to wear broken ones. I also did it so she could feel that we are stable for now and that it may put some load off her back, so she does not need to worry as much.
The situation with us is that she is not receiving help from the government, so we are surviving on my loan and my income. (Which is not great, 2000 dollars approx.)
I am not a person that is greedy, I have not bought anything for me except food and clothes the past year. I have bought stuff for my girlfriend, clothes, food etc.
I never wanted to get in this situation. But I did it for her because I want to give her a good life.
She is searching for jobs, and she is not lazy but because of her upbringing, she has social anxiety and is fighting with it.
In a way I am not asking for help on my behalf, but rather on hers.
She has a student loan for about 40 thousand dollars. That is about 340000 Swedish crowns.
Myself, I have two loans for about 60 thousand dollars.
It is a lot of money. I know. But I would take any help I can. Like I said in the beginning. I am so ashamed of this. I do not like to be on this side of the coin. I want to be the one who helps others.
I know there are some kindhearted people out there and if you would help me. With just a little bit. I would be forever grateful!
I want a shot to live a normal life with my girlfriend.
Thank you for reading!
