I know I’m probably not the first or last person on here to say it, but I’m usually not the kind of person who asks for help, often the one offering it, I’ve normally never had anyone I could ask for help. I’m turning 26 at the end of this month (November) , my mother had me while she was 15, and was / is an avid drug user, my father was a gang member, and was in prison for most of my life. I’ve spent most of my life studying hard and working, juggled between my grandfather and grandmother, going so far as to give them what money I had saved for college (Roughly $15,000 not much I know!), just to afford a roof for them and I until I finished my high school diploma.
I moved out, and roomed with a few friends at the age of 17, and proceeded to work full time and attempt to go to school, which worked fine until I had learned my father had passed away within hours of being released from prison. Which needless to say, even with him being absent sent me into a deep depression, not really being able to know him at all. Over time I had to stop school for a brief period, thankfully only a few thousand dollars in debt from books and tuition. Along with this, I’ve not had health insurance, well ever. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw a doctor. I know I need dental work as many of the teeth in the back of my mouth require fillings just to properly chew.
I recently became homeless for a short time before managing to find a small 8×8 room thanks to my grandfather, as it stands I’m currently working once again and returning to school, so most money that I’m getting is used for food, minimum payments and book costs for the most part. For those interested I’m currently attending for an AS-T in Business Administration, pursuing a bachelors degree at the least. I’d like to one day work in Human Resources, because even though it’s normally overlooked, the people who work in HR have the potential to help people where they really need it, because nobody likes working in hostile environments.
I set this in the uncategorized section because to be honest I’m not sure where it belongs, I’m not really expecting any help, but if you can offer something to help me go see a doctor or dentist, or help with the loan debts or just some food it would be appreciated, honestly and from the bottom of my heart.
For anyone who might be willing to help, my paypal is:
