hey, everyone. i know i haven’t been around much lately, and i’m at the end of my rope. i don’t know what to do anymore. everywhere i look things are awful, and i have no idea what i should do other than this.
when i first noticed that my mom wasn’t going to work, i didn’t really understand, and she wasn’t very forthcoming. eventually she explained that she was sick, and that she needed surgery to go back to work, but we didn’t have enough money to cover what her work’s heath insurance would have, so instead she continued to stay at home. work still paid her some for her leave, and she went on disability to subsidize that, and for a while we were able to survive with the money from both.
but over the course of time, her work has paid her less and less. last week, they fired her altogether. disability will not pay her any more than they already are, and without health insurance the cost of getting her fit for work would be astronomical. now, we don’t have any time left.
if i can’t come up with $1271.38 by tomorrow, my mom and i will be evicted from our apartment. we have nowhere to go, no one to stay with, in one of the coldest winters on record. my mom is unable to take care of herself, and even though i’ve been trying to get a job since she lost hers, the job market has tightened like crazy since the holidays and i’ve been unsuccessful.
i’m out of options. if i don’t figure out a way to pay this money, i’m going to be homeless tomorrow, and i’m going to have no help, no income, and no idea how to live. i don’t know what i’m going to do. but i know that tumblr has come through for people in this kind of situation before, and i have nothing left.
so please, if you could go onto my blog and click the donate button on my sidebar or click this link here to donate— any amount of money would help me, whether i manage to get enough together somehow for rent or not. i don’t have any money for food, or transporation, or anything — no idea where our stuff will go or where we’re meant to go.
if any of you can help me, it would mean that i had some kind of hope. thank you.
when things settle down and get better i will make everyone that donated a gifset or url graphic or fanmix or anything you want!
*send me a message with whatever you want made*
Most of you probably missed this yesterday, so I’m reblogging it again. Please spread the word if you can’t donate anything. I can’t imagine how it must be to lose your home, your safe place. I’m lucky enough that I never had to ask for help, but we never know the day after tomorrow, right? She only has a few hours and I’m sure that every little penny will help at this point. She’s also offering to do gifsets and graphics if you want to!
