Thanks for taking the time to read this. I can’t say I’m ashamed of all I’ve gone through or what I am asking for. See, it all started in 2015 when my mom became ill. She spoiled me because I’m her youngest. I was never held responsible for bills or prepared for what was about to change my life. She instantly got sick overnight. Started repeating herself and not being as bubbly but depressed. She wasn’t even using the bathroom. Shortly after, my mom was diagnosed with 4th stage dimentia. She’ll forever be resided in memory care while that left me on the streets and hopping couch to couch. I had no support from close relatives nor friends. I never held anyone obligated over my life, but it hurts to have those you love turn their backs. That’s okay. If nothing else, my mother taught me to have strong faith. With the good will of the higher power, that neglect and isolation made me better. Unfortunately, I’m still not stable due to lack of support. I work everyday. Sometimes eat PB and J just to get by. It’s hard doing it all on your own. Not having a car never bothered me but humbled me. Now that I’ve accomplished one goal- getting my place (garage apartment), it’s time to keep going and upgrade. (Now the part where I plead and beg.)
Since I’ve been in my place, it hasn’t felt like home. Why? I have no furniture. Absolutely none! I sleep on a deflated air mattress (refuse to buy another) and my bathroom is slightly decorated, but that’s it. Nothing in my living area, no bed or TV. The carrier’s data plan is my best friend. My place is only 300 sq. ft. so I wouldn’t need much. I love my tiny peace of heaven and would love it more if I could put my own touches to it. Couch, ottoman, bed, lamp and a couple of area rugs would be a great start. Not too much to ask for, right? Hope not.
Again, thanks for your time and another thanks in advance for any donations. I’m truly grateful for your investment in me coming from so far and having very little. Have a blessed one!
