Forgotten to be happy, so sick, depressed and loosing house
Organized by: Bethany Jordan
My situation is pretty bad right now, both health wise and financially. I'm pretty severely depressed because of my lung cancer and have let everything go. I'm behind on my rent and have no income at the moment. Things are improving though (I hope!). I'm taking steps to get better (and I live in a country where it's not going to be a financial burden for me), so that's good, I guess. I'm entitled to financial support from the state but it will take weeks, maybe a month or 3 months for it to materialize. The problem is, I need money now, to pay the rent and a few small bills. I hate this. I hate being this leech who asks for your hard-earned money. But I don't want to loose my home and go to the streets. So, I'm going to ask. Also, it's not possible for me to get a loan from a bank because I've already used all my credit in my one credit card. My landlady needs me to pay my rent now, she's been very patient and kind already. I don't want you to feel guilty or bad about refusing. Selfishly, I also don't want to lower your opinion of me (though that might be too much to ask). I'm going to have to explain why I'm asking, but I don't want to make it sound like it's your responsibility to save me. It's difficult for me to think on my feet right now, so I think I'm going to write myself some bullet-points to help to get through the call. I'm also quite weepy and I think it would help if I had the thing quite clearly formulated in my mind so that I could avoid crying because crying will definitely make this thing harder on everyone and I don't want that. I don't ask for money especially online it's because its too much for me right now, and none of my friend can borrow me some money because owe them already, but it's not a good thing and I'm very ashamed already. This is a mess of my own making, I know. Please, be kind . I know, it's bad to ask money , but I'm so scared right now and I don't see any other way. And please don't analyze my tone or writing style too much. I'll add some extra information about myself. I'm a 37 years woman living in Washington State.. Very sick and depressed for the last five 9 months or so. I'm getting treated, but it just started. I'm applying for the financial support and I've been told there should be no problems there, it will just take a bit of time.) Thank you for your Help!
