Last Resort

This is the last thing I can think to do before resorting to sex work, which I’ve been avoiding because of past trauma, but the reality is that I can’t afford even the basics anymore.  Some of you might have read about my issues with my job a few months ago, but just to quickly recap, I worked at as a cake decorator for almost a year before I realized my boss had been keeping the tips from the cake orders I received. I was also promised a raise, which I never received. When he was confronted about this, he cut my hours from 35 to 7.  Some people suggested I report him to the labor board but most people were adamant they wouldn’t help me, or  it would take too long so I was discouraged and just quit my job without a backup plan. It’s been 4 months now and despite looking for a job, I haven’t found anything. I don’t have a car or a college degree, I have no certifications, I dropped out of high school and got my GED when I was 17, so despite being an excellent employee everywhere I’ve ever worked, on paper I look very undesirable. Even if I fudge some details on the application, I still don’t even get so much as a call. 
Yesterday my power was shut off and I have pets. All the food in my fridge has gone bad and I have no money, no food, no lights, no AC and it’s unbelievably hot in my apartment. My dog is epileptic and that’s another $45/month for his meds, which I can’t afford. Everything has gone to hell in a hand basket. I truly hate to have to ask for help because this is mostly my own damn fault and I know that. But I don’t know what else to do. I don’t have any particular goal in mind but they wouldn’t let me make this without setting one. Basically what I’m asking for is a little financial assistance so I can feed myself and take care of my animals while I try to get back on my feet. Obviously no one is under any obligation to do anything. But I figured I might as well try. Thanks for even taking the time to read this.
