I'm falling behind and need help.

Anyone that knows me knows that I am the absolute worst about asking for any sort of help.  The past 3 years of my life have not been the easiest to get through.  I lost a job I loved to move cities to a job I ended up hating and then losing.  Now that I'm in a job I actually enjoy, I find my mistakes from the past 3 years catching up to me.  

Sadly, those mistakes have had a negative impact on a dear friend of mine that has really kept me alive through all of this.


This is my friend, Christina (with her cat, Jefferson).  She's a good person that has had some rough patches in her life too.  The kind of rough patches that make it difficult to keep a roof over your head.  I opened my home to her, but it has been difficult dealing with landlords and finding accommodations where she can qualify for occupancy.  Sadly, I was forced to kick her out.  The landlord wouldn't let me renew the lease with her on it.  I have no savings to pay for a move or pet deposit for my dog.  I'm behind on several bills too.  If she didn't go, we'd both have to go.  I had to decide in the no-win scenario.

Hence me swallowing my pride to hold out my hand.  Your generosity will help me find a place where the both of us can live quietly and comfortably.  While I'm in no position to be paying back money to anyone, I always find ways to repay gifts in-kind or pay-it-forward.  I love volunteering and I try to help others in need wherever I am capable.  

I don't deserve any help from anyone, but Christina sure does and helping me helps get her a permanent place to live.
