It’s so hard to ask for help

I'm embarrassed and ashamed that its come to this. And it actually makes me physically ill to admit it, but I am at rock bottom and in desperate need of help.

Not one to air my dirty laundry on social media, but if I'm asking for help, I should explain why. It started years ago with a failed marriage to someone I truly thought I could trust. But after repeatedly cheating on me, lying to me, being emotionally and verbally abusive to and even saying racist things in front of my mixed race son, he moved out and in with one of the women with whom he was cheating. All the while, I remained unemployed in order to be there for his kids when they were over and maintain the household.

Since hes been gone, money has dwindled from the sale of the house and I have been unable to find a job. I've applied many different places, but since my license has lapsed and I have raised kids rather then work since 2014, I have been unable to find anything.

I recently started DoorDash and was making a little income, but was recently involved in an accident and my vehicle was totaled w/o insurance. Now I will have even more bills to pay from that and no way at all to even make the little money that DoorDashing brought in. It hurts me to pour my heart out and admit that I've made mistakes and trusted the wrong people. But now, the threat of homelessness is very real and I can't help but cry every night thinking of how my life has come to this. No help from Braydens father, abandoned by my current husband, and although my parents would help if they could...they are also affected by recent times and can't offer as much help as I need.

I know this has been a long read, but PLEASE...if anyone can help with a small donation to GoFundMe, it would mean the world to me. And if anyone has any information of any jobs available in (enter location) or a very cheap and reliable vehicle close to $1000, I would be forever grateful. I truly am sorry for asking and would appreciate any help.
