I’m a 25 old woman, going on 26; i live in the smallest town you could ever imagine in south Italy, a little isolated place of 150 people, in ******, possibly the poorest region of Italy; there’s no school, no markets, no restaurants, no job here. If you want to shop or do anything else, you have to drive for about 40/45 minutes by car. This is a sad reality, there’s no chance to realize anything in life.
So the sad truth is that i was born here and constricted to grow up in a very difficult kind of society; my situation, in childhood, has been even worst than the other kids living here, because of my mother. Since i was a child, i had to face her depression and anxiety, and both became part of me later.
I was a problematic kid, so i somatized my problems becoming obese; my adolescence was a fight against reality, i wanted to escape this place every single day of my life. I had to learn english, french and spanish by myself , because the school system is the worst you could ever imagine, here; i had to learn to drive by myself, because my parents never took care of me once in lifetime.
When i was 20, my depression got worse, i left college, i lost all of my friends, i lost a lot of weight; but later i started dating a boyfriend from Milano, it was a good phase of my life, because i got back to college and i had the chance to stay in my favourite city.
A year ago, he left me and i had to go back to that sad reality i grow up into. Of course, i got severely depressed again because i ‘m helpless. I’d like to work and study, but there’s no chance here. So, i’m spending my days as an empty shell, reading and helping stray cats and dogs.
Right now, you’d be wondering “girl, you know, life’s difficult for everyone, stand up and realize yourself”.
Well, I’m just trying to find a way out, in every possible way. I’m here to ask for a little economical help, because no bank would dive me a loan without a job and my parents won’t give me anything.
I assure, i’ll give everything back if you ask, even if i had to work 24h for the next years; i need money to move from here and get back to college, to pay a rent, to find a job, to eat etc..
I just want a little chance to live as a decent human being. If you’d like to help, or get to know a little more about me, or just give a little advise for my situation, you can send an email here [email protected] ; even a little advise from anyone would be precious for me.
I perfectly know there’s a lot of people facing problems worst than mine; there’s a lot of sadness in this world. But for me, even a little amount of money, even a little advise would be really important right now. If you’ll ask, i’ll send some photos of this place next time, to prove there’s nothing worth to live here. If you’d like to know me better, send anything here [email protected]
Thanks for you time, S.
