Well Hello there :-)
My name is Chris Sheehan. I am currently living in Ireland.
Ok so i am going to tell you a little bit about my backround. I am 22 and i have finally made the desion to leave my mothers house which i have been residing in the last 14 years. The desision was not easy but i tought it is about time i enter the big bad world.
I would have done this sooner rather then later only for the fact of my Fathers passing on the 27th of Feburary 2012 (suiside)
Since then my life has really been upside down. I lost alot of "So Called Friends", money and actually devolped a drinking habbit. 2012 was a very rough year for me.
and exspencive seeming i am an only child with single parents as of 2003.
I started to get my life back on track in Augest 2013 when i found some work in a local hotel. It was a Kitchen porting job :( but at the end of the day it was a job. I signed a 6 month contract and i outshined myself in that roll.
I lost my job in Janurary 2013, due to streesful hours and work invorment. I was also suffering from a mental illness, brought on from the loss of my Father and alcohol and that work envorment did not suit me in anyway.
I desided i needed some help and i got it.
I went to many Doctor sessions and talked to people about my situation. Near enough in July 2013 i was 99% back to my old self, so i desided to presue my dream carrier as a Lorry driver. It isent much of a carrier but as i once heard "if you find a job you love doing, you will never work a day in your life" and that saying has stook with me since.
September the 1st 2013 rolled around when i was lying in bed when i got the phone call, My 16 year old cousin rang my mothers mobile to tell my mother his dad/ her brother had just dropped dead infront of his eyes moments ago. It looked like my past had once again desided to give me a reminder.
The next few weeks were exceptionaly diffacult for my family again and also my 3 cousins that had lost there father.
But i was there to help !
I knew what they were going through, and also my mother. I stayed strong.
At the end of september i started a HGV Course and continued it untill the 10 of Janurary 2014 when i passed my full driving test for the truck :)
woo hoo :)
but i have been met with even more diffulctys. It is exceptionaly hard to be employed at the age of 22 because most companys have open insurance and the min age is 25.
So i want to get even more qualifactions and licences untill then, while trying to find some work for a 22 year old in Ireland.
Moving out of home was also not a stupid desision seeming im unemployed and getting a social payment, but moving out of home was actually cheeper for me. my rent is 200 a month (which tells you alot about this little house) but all bills are split with my girlfriend. so it really does work out cheeper.
All i am asking for is a little bit of extra help,
and if you can you dont know how much you can change a life around.
thank you so much for even taking the time to read this and honestly 1,000,000,000 thank yous if you can actually donate :)
Thank you all
