Sincerly, Brandis Cotton

Missed Work: Need Rent Help.

My Story:

I was in a very abusive relationship with a man dying from cancer. I have tried to be there and deal with the abuse, but it's hard and I can't do it anymore. I feel as if I'm the one dying from cancer due to all the hurt and pain he has put me through. It seems like every time I go back to help him, I'm the one that ends up hurt.

I have missed work due to him having major surgery to help fight the cancer, but of course once he heals up, we go back to the same thing and I end up hurt again. Basically, without getting too graphic because I am trying my best to finish this application without crying, I can't believe I'm at this point in my life that I have to ask for help.

I just want to get away, but it's like now that I have moved out on my own, I can't afford to buy clothes for my kids, shoes or even pay bills. I'm trying so hard, but I keep falling so if you can please help, I would really appreciate the help. I always thought if you treat people good then good would come back to you, but at this point I feel like 'When is my time going to come?'

I am tired of feeling like nothing from struggling. I have to tell my kids no to a candy bar and try not to cry because I don't have any extra money to do special things and it hurts. I just need a little help to get back on my feet again so that I can be a better mother to my kids. Who wants to borrow money to wash clothes, but when your trying, who can judge you? Thank you.
