After leaving an abusive relationship in August, stressful court dates and protection orders, having to relive it every time I told a legal aid my story, I thought I would be able to relax and really feel life; to live instead of survive. I was forced to relocate and shortly after moving my dog was attacked by another dog and suffered a broken arm. I still owe the animal hospital the majority of that unexpected $2000 bill. I’m a professional tattoo artist, it’s not always as glamorous as the shows. We don’t get paid hourly so if we don’t tattoo, we don’t eat. Winter time is the slow season so money was scarce anyway. Then literally a week before Christmas I was fired via a hand written note. No warning, no explanation, no reason and definitely no heart. It took me a few days; might’ve been about 2-3 weeks honestly before landing a new spot. My depression just consumed me and I froze in place in life. Meanwhile all my bills were piling up. My phone has been shut off for almost 3 months, I missed my car payment (first time for that) and I was sent an eviction email which stated I was to be out by the 17th. I have no options that are healthy for me. My friends and family aren’t able to help. I’d like to be able to find someone to help me take care of everything that has accumulated and maybe even be able to pay a few things ahead of time. I do work, but clientele takes time to build and I also have been selling things I own. Even things I might still need but realize I can replace certain things as long as they’re not sentimental.
I’m not sure how in depth I’m suppose to go here or how long ago in my pleading did most of you lose interest?! Lol I’m trying to tread water and keep myself sane. I know life has its lessons and tests. We all go through something at one point and it’s only natural we help each other out. I’m a giver so this is cyber begging is not the norm for me. I’d love to have the money to help people. If you guys give me a chance and help support my reinventing myself into a responsible adult who’s dealt with too much hurt and stress in a short period of time and just wants to feel life and live the moment instead of surviving the moment; I will be forever grateful and
