I'm drowning; please help me.

I hope it's ok that I copied/pasted my original facebook post:

Let me preface this entire post with, sorry mom, I know this will upset you when you read it, but at this point I don't know what else to do.

Due to a series of unfortunate events, aka my life, I'm reduced to begging for money online.

The tl;dr version: I'm drowning, please help me.

The extended version I have typed up and have ready to share with (nearly) anyone who wants to hear it; message me if you want the gory details. I'm just reluctant to tell a select few all my business. The point is this: I'm in a dire financial situation and need help.

I have my bank account linked to facebook messenger, so that's probably the easiest, fastest way to help. I also have PayPal which I think just requires my email address (I think? If that's not the case please let me know): [email redacted]. Then there's also standard mail (message me for the address) if you want to send cash, checks, unused gift cards, or any other thing you think would help, even words of encouragement. If anyone wants to help but is more comfortable donating to a gofundme account, I'm willing to start one if you'd prefer.

I hate having to do this; it's embarrassing and humiliating. There IS relief in sight (details in the extended version) but at the moment it's just far enough out of reach to send me begging for help.

Thank you
