I finished up my fan art of Jack! I was super encouraged by all of the notes and reblogs I got on my doodle, so I decided to make a full digital artwork of the piece.
Again, thank you guys for the love and thanks to Jack for everything you do for your community!
Jeez, that number skyrocketed within the last few days! As always, I love each and every one of you. I’m shocked that I have this many people that like and support this little blog of mine. When I started, I barely expected to get over 40 followers. Now I have 4,000 and it hasn’t even been a full year! I hope you all have a wonderful day and enjoy these preening cuties.
But I need help. And just getting to the point that I can admit that out loud has been a long, painful journey.
Here’s the situation: my husband has never been a flexible person, hating to have his routines tampered with and throwing fits when they are. He reduced our oldest daughter to a sobbing wreck on Monday with his fury over her accidentally washing a shirt of his in with the load of our stuff. Up until then, most of his rage was directed at me and I could handle it. But I realized, suddenly, what I was allowing to happen, and that my children were suffering.
I told him I wanted him to move out. He refused and locked himself in his bedroom for two days. He has not spoken to me since Monday. I have no idea what he’s planning or doing, because every attempt I’ve made at contact has been rebuffed with icy silence.
I am disabled, with degenerative disk disease, narrowing of the spinal canal, and scoliosis, as well as severe arthritis and a severed ligament in my left knee. I physically cannot keep a job, since I can’t stay on my feet for more than a few minutes at a time.
My books are beginning to sell, which is wonderful, but they’re nowhere near enough to support myself and four children yet. I have filed for disability, which I should have done years ago, I know, but I didn’t need it, right? My husband supported us all, no reason to mess with the system he had in place.
I was raised to never ask for handouts. And I’m crying as I type this because I hate that I have to now. But I’m desperate. Emotionally, our marriage has been over for years, but things are just getting worse. I can’t live with this man and since he won’t leave, then clearly I have to.
I’m asking for help. I hope I never have to again, I wish it wasn’t necessary at all, but I have to break this cycle of abuse, and I can’t do it alone. The shelter in the county is full and we’re low priority anyway because the abuse isn’t physical, which means that the housing authority is our only real hope at the moment, since their rent is based on income and should be something affordable. Assuming they have an opening.
If you’re still reading, my Paypal is email@example.com. Any amount will be a help, but if you can donate even just $5, I’ll send you a digital copy of Coffee Cake or Beignets in tears and gratitude. If you can’t donate a penny but will reblog this so others can see it, you also have my gratitude and I will mentally hug you.
Thank you for listening and I’m going to go cry some more now.
I wasn’t sure if i going to make this year but a lot of pretty people put me in their post so i need make one. Thank you to everyone, i’m really sorry if i forget someone. This people made my dash perfect all this messy year, this is my follow forever
I haven’t done a follow forever in a long time and it’s extremely overdue. So I did one! A crappy one at that, my apologies. And, I’m taking this opportunity to notify that my url will change from y-uuwaku to 10kou.
Also, I want to thank the following blogs for being so inspiring and wonderful.
I always laugh and cry teardrops because of them.
Their sass level is clearly saiyan, can’t touch them. Even though I’m always slow at responding, you guys are always so patient. Thank you again for keeping my dash in all its glory. Love you donuts <3
