Trying to keep my head above water
Organized by: Mike Evans
I have never considered doing anything like this before, but at some point I have to bury my pride and ask for help. The last 3?years have been incredibly stressful and have taken their toll on me mentally and physically. My father passed away 3 years ago in the U.K. When he passed away, my mother was seriously ill in hospital. As a result of this, I had to travel back and fore to the UK from Detroit. This took a huge financial hit on me as I was unable to work. I slowly managed to get myself back on my feet, a lot of that determination I put down to the strength I developed during my 10 years in the military. Unfortunately, over the last 6 months, mothers health went rapidly down hill and I had to spend an extended amount of time in the UK. Sadly my mother passed away on the 20th August this year. I have not been able to work and as a result, I am now in massive financial dire straits. I am in the US at the moment with my girlfriend Ashley who I love with all my heart, but I am at the point where I am going to have no option but to leave her and start all over again in the UK. I know I will get through this eventually, but right now I don't know where else to turn. Losing both my parents has absolutely knocked me for six. I am normally a very strong person, but I feel myself slipping backwards day by day. If you have lost a parent or lost anyone you love, please look to your heart and pocket to see if you can help me.
