This person has left the following thank you note:
THANK YOU ALL, SO, SO VERY MUCH for your outpouring of love and kindness. This comes at an etremely crucial point in time for me. I am facing so much right now, and you have given me hope (which is priceless), and helped me to believe that there is something greater out there, and there is a purpose for my life. None of you had to help, none of you know me personally, yet, each and every one of you put faith in me, and contributed for the sake of my situation improving. It means the world to me. Maybe people aren't so bad after all..! I know that, when I can, I will pay it forward. God bless each of you, and thank you so much again.
My Ex Left Me With All Our bills, & I Had to Move. Now, I Can't Afford to Keep My Home & Need Help!
I'm a 37-year-old woman, and I recently moved in with my now ex-boyfriend. Long story short, I put a security deposit down on our new apartment and paid the first month's rent, then a few weeks later, when we were supposed to begin this chapter of our lives together, he disappeared completely. He left me and my cat completely on our own, and now I have to cover all of our bills on my own too. Not to mention, he also stole a ton of my belongings, including furniture, all of the food in the pantry, and a lot of my musical equipment. He left me heartbroken and destitute, and I had to move out of that apartment because I couldn't afford it on my own.
I've been struggling just to take things day by day, and I've been doing my best to pick up the pieces from my ex leaving me with all the bills, but I can't seem to get back on my feet. I've had to move and find a new place to live because I couldn't afford the last one, and now I'm struggling to even afford this new one. My health has been slowly deteriorating, and I've had to miss work and seek costly treatments as well. I have a Pituitary Microadenoma, and while it isn't cancerous, I still have to go out of town to have MRI's and to have it monitored just to be safe. On top of that, the van that I use for work also broke down, and I had to pay to get that repaired. As a result, I've gone from just barely treading water financially to being completely submerged, and I desperately need help if I'm going to make it through this. Right now, I've fallen behind on my rent, and after having just moved in, I have very little leeway with my landlord, so I'm very worried that I'm going to be evicted.
I'm very humbly asking for assistance with my rent because without it, I'll be homeless with nowhere to go. While dating my ex, I became very isolated from my friends and family, and I don't have anyone that I can count on for assistance anymore. I'm struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but the generosity and kindness that I'm shown would help me to do that once again. I'll be able to keep moving forward and working to consolidate everything so that I can get back to being strong and self-sufficient again. I've learned a lot form this situation, and I promise to repay the generosity that I'm shown to someone else going through a similar situation. Thank you.
