Please help me keep my apartment
My relationship with my parents has always been a strained one, and over the past few years my mother has become increasingly manipulative and emotionally abusive. I've been living on my own for nearly two years, but in the spring I lost my job and was forced to move back in with my parents over the summer until I found a new one. Within weeks tension between my mother and I rose and as my depression and anxiety worsened, my mother was constantly belittling and taunting me until we ended up getting in a fight so huge I'm sure the entire street heard us shouting and she told me to leave her house and go to a shelter for all she cared. I moved out and into an apartment with my boyfriend within two weeks and since then things have been alright.
Unfortunately, my boyfriend was laid off from his summer job 3 weeks early and couldn't find another for over a month, and as soon as he got his new job, I lost mine. That was 4 weeks ago, and while I did start a new job last week, we still have absolutely no money and I won't be getting paychecks . We've been fortunate that the boyfriends dad has been buying our groceries and giving us extra cash every now and then, but we can't keep going to him for help.
So here's the deal: next week Monday both rent and gas bills are due. Electricity is due the following Monday, but because Consumers Energy has repeatedly refused our payments, we still have last months bill (plus late fee) to pay. I've uploaded screenshots of my bills, which total to about $100. Rent is $300 for me, and my boyfriend should be able to pay his half just fine this month. I'm asking the public because I have no where else to turn.
I've lowered the goal amount to reflect how much we still need since we recieved cash donations as well as my first paycheck (which was much more than I expected, thankfully).
