I have been living in my apartment for almost 12 years and she knows she can get significantly more rent if someone else moves in.
I was raised to keep my private life private, and while I have a lot of guilt reaching out for help, I have a lot more gratitude that I might be able to get the help I need. I try my hardest not to contribute to unnecessary drama, but today I find myself backed into a bit of a corner and this is very hard for me. After many months and a series of unfortunate events I find myself for the first time in my life in a position to ask for financial help from my friends. This IS the most stressful times in my adult life and I really appreciate any and all help, even words of encouragement.
