Hey everyone, it’s momagrl (Millicent/Mila) and today I’m asking for some help.

Back in March of 2013, my mom and dad started having marital issues. I
didn’t think anything of it, because every relationship has their
battles. But after two weeks of bickering and anger, my dad confessed he
wanted a divorce. After three months of begging and fighting for her
love, my mom and I left our stable lifestyle. We left Colorado behind,
along with our lifelong companions (my dad, our dog, and our cat). We
were on our own and headed to Alabama to be closer to my mom’s family.
Moving there was quite difficult for me, because being a military child I
always seemed to be leaving behind a life I started. I started to
resent my mother, and I blamed her for my father’s irrational decisions.
Little did I know, how complicated their problems were.
settling in to our new home, which we were renting from my mom’s high
school friend, my mom had a difficult time finding a supporting job. We
were living off of spousal support from the divorce for over a year (it
seemed). My mom found a job in August of 2014, but since her position
was funded by a grant she could lose it easily (and she did in October
of 2014). The grant wasn’t being funded by the state anymore. So we were
borrowing money from my grandparents and collecting money occasionally
from my dad (who seemed to pity us). My mom went into a state of
depression and didn’t seem to want her life to continue, but she managed
to pull through and attempt to make me happy. But Matt (the man we were
renting the house from) started to increase the monthly rent. We were
paying around 1200-1300 dollars a month, for a crappy house that WE
My mom was out of a job for about a year, and in July
of 2015 she was hired by the Cerebral Palsy Foundation in Montgomery. If
you can imagine, the money is not in social work (which is what my
mother has a degree in). Now, it’s August and Matt needs us out of the
house in 30 days or less because he has sold the house (without telling
my mom). We are frantic, because living in a college town can be pricey
in safe neighborhoods.
I am worried and desperate. We don’t have a
lot of money. And as a sixteen (seventeen in November) year old who
needs to be able to pay for AP courses and help contribute to our
stuggling lifestyle, I need help from every willing person out there!
And you know how it can be for women, our needs (feminine products,
razors, shaving gel, shampoos, conditioners, etc.) cost a lot.
I ask is 1-5 dollars from each person. It’s not that much, and it
would help out tons! I feel so bad for asking but I don’t know what else
