When i was 19 yrs old i left home too early cause i felt my dad didnt love me enough. I was beat and verbally abused unnecessarily. I left to spare my dad and mom marriage because my mother couldnt choose. Not realizing i left the most important thing in my life behind my, sister . my sister has down syndrome , bi polar , diabetes and numerous other health conditions. 10 years ago my mother died from breast cancer and the fight began..... I have been fighting for my sister to come live with me and have a quality of life for once and for all.. Because my dad treated her the same ... Yelling at her constantly with no patience. In and out of her life last year my father fell and decided to call out for me. I ran dropped any and everything thinking and hoping maybe this is our shot at some type of lovable father and daughter relationship and of course i get to see my sister. I moved in our very same apartment i ran away from 20 plus years ago..... I put all. Of me aside to perform this task and wishing and hoping in the long run it would turn out in all positive. When i arrived to my knowledge my father was worse than i thought and my sister needed me more than i thought. My father was 95 %blind and had limited walking abilities and also dementia. I cried out to the community and my family how serious it was and i needed help. My father never changed he whole time I was there he mentally broke me Down and mentally unstablized me where it affected my ability to take care my sister properly. He used me to stay in the home with him while he continued to abuse me and run my life. The conditions we ., my sister & I were under were horrible... Before and after a fire my dad caused that almost killed them. Both if i wasnt there. June 1st , my sister got sick and when we got to. The hospital her sugar was 600! I had no clue of what my father did or gave her to have her sugar that high however i did the right thing and reported this to the hospital. The hospital takes my story and twisted it around and i got blamed. For being the irresponsible one. Because he is her guardian he has all. Say so and because he hates me and is angry i reported the situation he vindictively told the hospital. To put her in a home. I was taking all my money and taking care my sister and father to the point where i was living check to check. My sister is on her way to a home and iam living out my car. 2 weeks ago i took my last check and put security on an apartment. Because of my credit i have to pay 2 months rent plus security and i only have 1 months rent and security. My pride made me wait this long but this i dont deserve i know iam a good person. I dont like to ask people for nothing because no hurts but this time i cant cut my nose off to spite my face. Sincerely asking for any support to move in my place by the 1st of july . good thing im 2 months ahead in rent always . i will. Return to my night job ive at the end of june. Ive been so grateful to my company for letting me take unlimited time off for family. Anyone that donates please leave legit info so i can give your donation back. This is not a handout i need i need a loan.
