Hello my name is Jodie, I am 22 years old. I am a simple girl who's wants and desires are most likely not to different from anyone else my age. I just want to go to college and get a good job, instead of staying at Tim Hortons for the rest of my life. I've lived in Barrie my whole life hiding the secret of being a lesbian. Especially from my family. I have a girlfriend of 3 years and considering her family values I've had to live in the shadows.. From being threatened, harassed, I've been so scared even to even post on go fund me for help.. I've lost all my friends..I've been kicked out of my familys house, shamed and haven't even been able to bring up the courage to ask for help. Social assistance is something I have to be on, considering being kicked out of my familys place, I lost my job in the process.. I have a storage unit which is about to expire because I can barely even afford to feed myself. My girlfriend is in a similar situation but have close ties to her family. They want nothing to do with me they just put up with the fact that I'm not going anywhere because we both love eachother unconditionally. She is at the end of her rope working to pay for bills that we've made to just barely make it by. I'm living in Toronto with one of her friends, currently I only have 2 months till I have to leave job or not. I have a cat who is very important to me who is neutered, but have nowhere for him to go. I hate to ask, I feel shamed to even bother on here.. But I am asking as a last hope that maybe some people who can understand my situation, can help. I'm asking for 3,000 so I can pay my unit before I lose all my possessions my bed, clothes etc I can put first and last down on a place considering I'm limited on time before I lose my phone, my stuff, and a place to live.. I don't want to go to much into detail because I don't want be upset anymore. I need help.. Just because I'm a lesbian, I Shouldn't have to be cut out and shamed.. Please if anyone can be of help, it would be a godsent. If anyone is serious.. Please help us.. My email is Thank you for those who took the time to read this.. It means alot. thank you so much and God bless.
