I have tried for several years to get out of Atlanta. I've settled into my new place, but things are getting out of hand once again.

Hey, guys! This is rather unorthodox of me, but I'm coming to help with my own two hands stretched out. I'm in my mid-twenties, and I've been trying for years to get out of an abusive household. Due to a successful job campaign, I was able to do just that. I live with some supportive friends. I have a nice house, and I had a job.

Had, being the operative word. Because I had to work, I couldn't afford to eat every day (because I just didn't have time in the morning and would fall asleep as soon as I got home). At best, I ate twice a week. Sometimes more, if I was willing to let my friends help, heh. I quit my job because it was too demanding, and even though the pay was worth it, it was damaging to my health, and the management was making work insufferable. What sold it is the fact that I ended up passing out at work. Maybe I was being weak, but at the end, I quit to preserve my mental and physical health.

I quit with a plan, however, and I had a few leads on jobs that I could take while pursuing my hopes of getting back into freelance writing. For a while, my best friend, who brought me down here, was the one who supported me and helped me with rent.

Unfortunately, because of his own circumstances, he ended up going back home for a bit, and just before he did, my computer broke. I've been working on a tablet computer for nearly a month now, and in my obsession of getting my computer back and getting my finances together, I've neglected something proper: my rent.

Though I had little to offer, I at least tried in the month of December, but I allowed mental relapses, my own obsession, and immediate self-destruction to prevent me from keeping focus.

This fund is to help me catch up on rent. I don't know how I'll be able to get anything for next month, but if I'm able to give them even a little bit, I might be able to avoid some serious consequence.

I'm not sure what else to say. If you even help me meet my goal, I'll be in your debt. I'm not a smart person nor am I very capable, hence why I've made this fundraiser so late in the game. But despite that, I hope you overlook my foolishness long enough to help me out.

Thank you so much.
