Fund for used car to have son visit

$45 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 40 months
My name is Eric and I've suffered from Paranoid Schizophrenia for over two decades. I've had some really low times in my life, such as being hospitalized several times, failed suicide attempts, and a victim of sexual abuse. That being said, in 2011 I met a woman that I fell in love and subsequently dated. A month into our relationship, she discovered she was pregnant by a former boyfriend who she had lost all contact with. I stepped up and became her child's father. I fell in love with my son and felt I had finally found a family that I yearned for my entire life. Unfornately, my girlfriend cheated on me. After 4 years of raising my son, she decided to leave me. Now I can only see my son a few times here and there but not nearly as much as I'd like. The car that I own is over 20 years old and dying. I really need help purchasing a used car that is dependable, so I can visit my son regularally. Please help me...

Well, it's been awhile since I updated but I was able to obtain a small loan for a used car. Unfortunately, It isn't the most dependable car and the loan amount is making it harder to pay my bills. My disability income can only go so far, so I'm still asking for help in paying off the loan for the car, as well as some needed repairs. I'm grateful that a few people found it in their hearts to help me out. My son and I are forever grateful. If you can't help financially, I totally understand but if you believe in prayer... Please pray for me and my son. Thank you...

My car finally died and all my fears are slowly coming true. I really don't like asking for help but I don't know where else to turn. I have no family or friends. I'm also on a very fixed income because I'm disabled. I would tell you more about me, but you can read my blog: http://mylifewithparanoidschizophrenia.myschizophrenia.org/ .... where I share my story about living with mental illness. Thank you for taking the time to look at my update. God bless.
