    Story

    This is tough as I am not really sure what to say and am struggling with this situation due to being a proud veteran who feels weakened by asking for this kind of support, however, I also know from experience that sometimes you need to reach out and ask for help. So here it is, the reason that I am asking for help. My family and I are like many others, we get by and do the best that we can in difficult circumstances. But here's the thing, I can't remember a time when me and mine were not struggling or having to fight to literally put food on our table and keep a roof over our heads. Whether its losing family members to sudden illness, having a mental health breakdown, being out of work or literally life just smashing us, it never fucking ends. We've been homeless for a brief amount of time in the past but luckily managed to find a family home that was within budget and moved in 3 years ago with the promise that it would be a long term let. Now we've been told that our tenancy isn't been renewed as the landlord is selling and in a few short weeks me, my partner and out 2 daughters will once again be without a home. We will be homeless because we haven't got 2 pennies to rub together - we have jobs and work hard, but everything we earn goes into keeping us here, which means that we are going to end up in a B&B or, if we are lucky, a bedsit. It terrifies because there is nothing that I can do to stop it from happening and it is breaking my family apart; because it doesn't matter how strong you are, if there is no light at the end of the tunnel and the hard times are constant, you will eventually fall apart. No matter what we do, no matter how hard we keep pushing forward and doing the right thing, we keep getting knocked down and I've had fucking enough. It's breaking me. My family are my life and mean everything to me, yet I can't even find a way to keep a roof over their heads or offer them any kind of security - and I can't even promise them that it will get better in the future. Like I said, it's one thing after another and we can barley breathe at times. That's why I am swallowing my pride and asking for help. I need to find a way to keep us together and keep us in a home. Just some breathing space and a chance to get on an even keel again. If you can help then please do - I may not be able to pay you back, but I promise you that I always give back and anything that we get will find it's way to someone who needs it further down the line.
