I get it. Everyone has a sob story. Everyone needs help. And I'm not trying to make it sound like my case is any worse than others. However, here is how 2013 went down for me:

Complete emotional breakdown causing severe depression.

The loss of one job, which, led to the start of another job which held great potential.

The loss of a beloved pet.

I was forced with being homeless, not knowing where to turn to in a state where I knew virtually no one. With little money I had going into a car that barely worked.

I finally got my act together a bit and decided that bankruptcy was the best way to settle my debt and start with a clean slate.

However, I was unaware, after filing, that my car was no longer registered and was then hit with a $600 fine.

Then, my fiance and I break up due to the stress that has been building up over the course of this past year.

As a result of this stress, I decided to get myself some mental help and (excuse me, I'm aware of the stigma against it, but to hell with it, I'd rather be honest) and checked myself into an outpatient program for depression.

Luckily, my work allowed me to use Short Term Disability for this.

Unluckily, I get 4 weeks, UNPAID, before my 70% checks in.

Well....by the end of January, I will have no car, no home and no where to go. By the end of January, though, that is when my benfits will kick in.

Which obviously does not help me now.

I have listed everything I own of any value on e-bay and craigslist, which unfortunatly was not much. An excercise bike and some jewelery my parents gave me as a teenager, (that absolutely broke my heart to part with.)

I am literally stripped down to nothing but a bag ful of clothes and a few items of furniture that are of no value.

So, I ask, with my head held down in shame, for all who know me know how prideful I am.....for any little bit of help.

Anything. $1.00 there, .50cents here. Anything. Really.

I have the oppurtunity to buy a car at the end of January(because that's when I will start getting paid, IF I can get this ticket taken care of)(which needs to be taken care of in 30 days), but I can not do this on my own.

If I can buy a car, at least I'll have SOME sort of shelter once the lease is up.

Something is better than nothing.

I am begging you. Please, to those who I have may have ever helped out over the years, please, please think of me. And please realize how shameful I must feel to even have to ask.

And forgive me, for even asking.

I love you all. I would not ask if I did not think there was any other way.
