Three years ago me and my partner moved in together both from living with our parents but both coming from vastly different backgrounds. I am from a humble background being raised with 5 older siblings by my grandmother and abusive grandfather. She on the other hand grew up not as humble but was far more fortunate than I. Once we found our way into each others hearts we decided to take the big leap and move in together. Although as ready as could be financially and emotionally things did not go smoothly for too long. She has chronic back pain as well as a floating bone in her foot which makes working in her current job quite difficult at times. She works as an event manager at a event center which requires a lot of time standing and running from her. Since we moved in together we have been doing everything to get her into a better job to help us financially but it isn't that easy. Shes had such a difficult time completing her degree due to heinous acts towards her in the past that has left her with PTSD, severe anxiety and agoraphobia. Thankfully she has been able to work through them slightly but everyday is a struggle to survive for her and for us. I am currently working full time in a good job that pays well but it is not enough to support us without additional income. I am pursuing a degree in Animation and visual effects which is quite expensive. I have taken a break with no for sure date on returning in order to focus on my job that pays for our life but I just found out my job may be moving further away from us and my job cannot give me a raise to help me cover my rent that is going up. We have many curve balls life has thrown our way and it has taken the hope away from the love of my life but I will not let it happen to me. Through trial and error I was taught to never give up no matter how hard it gets. I have come close to losing sight of my dreams and she has been hurt so many times she cannot imagine having a dream but I want to give that back and take our lives back. Every day I assure her that everything will be okay but sometimes not know how. There have been times I have done things to make sure that we make it that month and not told her because it wasn't exactly anything I was proud of like taking out a loan on my car. We have had so many problems over the last 2 years that we are just at a lost of where to turn. The car I drive to work is a '96 and will die any day but with it being my only car I have no back up which puts my job that supports us primarily in jeopardy.
The money donated will go to making sure she has the clothes she needs for interviews, pay off my past due title loan, put a down payment on a car for us, removal of her floating bone and therapy for her.
