I am at risk of becoming homeless because of a tragedy I experienced. In May, I was sexually assaulted. It absolutely shattered me. I don't even like sharing about what happened to me, but I need help. I wish this wasn't my story, but someday I hope to help others who have gone through what I have. I have been doing my best to get back to feeling okay again...To learn how to live again. It has been an excruciating process. I've cried harder than I've ever cried, (with the exception of when a few of my loved ones passed away from cancer), prayed, fought to keep living, and I've done my best, but I am still healing.
My heart is still so broken after what happened to me. I had savings, but I've used them up on past utility and rent bills. I have two pets currently, and I really don't want to lose them. I rescued one three years ago (My cockatiel), and adopted the other a year and a half ago (My cat). They are like my babies. I feel like I've lost so much after being assaulted...I don't want to lose them too.
I've been looking for a work from home position, because I still panic when I'm in public after what happened to me. I had a retail job outside of the home before, but my PTSD made it impossible to continue, so I had to leave that position. I've been looking for, and applying for jobs for a few months now, but so far I haven't gotten one. It's been so disheartening. I'm hardworking when I'm able to work. I just need more time to find a job, without having to worry about being homeless.
I could really use some hope, and to be reminded that there are still good, loving people in this world. If it's on your heart to give, it would mean the world to me. Also, if you aren't able to give, would you mind sharing my story? Thank you so much.
