I've been living with my boyfriend Danny and his parents for a little over two years. We were only meant to stay a short while, but Danny injured his back and can't work and I've got a host of medical issues (Crohn's disease, ankylosing spondylitis, congestive heart failure, I'm on oxygen full-time, etc) and I can only work part time.
Well, his parents are very religious (Mormon) and were never too keen on having his gay boyfriend move in. There's also lots of family drama, and history that goes back a lot further than me.
Then Danny's mom decided to try to overdose on Xanax. She'd done this before (before and after I moved in), but this time, his dad decided to blame it on us because we stress her out too much, apparently. That led to him deciding to evict us. Now, he did this while I was in the hospital for about a month. We now have to be out by November 28, 2018.
Thankfully, our friends Marcus and Michael in Portland (love you guys!) offered us a place to stay. I've got a lead for a job, so things are looking up. The problem: moving expenses. I am getting paid, but things got all out of whack because I did not work for over a month (in the hospital + recovery time). So, while I'm trying to save as much as I can, I don't think we can make ends meet for this.
Here's what it's looking like expense-wise:
-A small container + the cost of transporting it to Portland: ~$1700 (I got a tentative quote, it could be more or less)
-One way plane tickets to From Orange County to Portland: ~$300 (we both have back issues and I don't think we'd be able to handle a bus ride that long).
Anything, even a few bucks would help. Thank you!
TL;DR: We're being evicted from Danny's parents' house and are moving to Portland, but it's really expensive.
