Rock Bottom: I'm homeless

I have a hard time asking for help. I've always been a strong person who never wants to burden others, but this is my last resort.

As of Sunday Jan. 14th, I am homeless. I moved into an apartment with a good friend on Newyears Eve and that is the night things went sour. Since then, I have been verbally abused and broken as a person by this person I trusted. It lasted so long because they convinced me that everything was my fault and they were "putting up with my shit". Some of you may be divided on this, but I ask for your compassion and understanding.

It is currently the middle of winter, and I am being forced out onto the street with no notice. I had been given three months, then two weeks, and now 24 hours to vacate.

I need help.

I work for UPS and love my job, but the paycheque is small. I have been living out of overdraft for the past too months, struggling to dig myself out of a hole. My pay goes entirely to gas and food. I have overdue bills left to me by my ex boyfriend.

I have had health issues for the past while, and this past Friday I ended up locked out of my car while it was running, only to face a $170 fee.

I have hit rock bottom, and I have nothing left in my life except for my job and my friends.

All of the money will go towards first and last on a place to live, as well as getting out of overdraft so I can start being able to make rent payments.

Thanks in advance for any and all support
