Help Me and My Family Move to a Safe Place
I feel like I don’t deserve to ask for this, but I also worry that something may change and my children will begin to be hurt emotionally or physically. I know so many more people have it worse than I and I hate to ask this. I have all the information up on the GoFundMe Page if you would like to read it. Above are pictures of me, and pictures of my two beautiful daughters.
I haven’t explained a lot on tumblr, its mostly explained on the gofundme page but my mother is an emotionally, and sometimes physically, abusive woman. I’m constantly belittled, what money I do have from working any of my three jobs goes back into their pockets in some way, now more than ever. This gofundme is the only way I will be able to move us out of this house.
She once convinced me, while I was at my lowest. When I was so deep in depression I could barely care for myself and my daughters, that after months of telling her no that I did not want to live with her again, that I should move back into her home.
She has pushed me to the floor before for daring to defy her. She uses a wooden spoon to threaten the children into doing what she tells them, though she has never actually used it (yet)
When I was a child she would make me pick out a green branch from a tree, a switch, and would use it across my legs if I misbehaved. This is the woman I am trapped with now.
This woman is biphobic as well, I cannot be myself around her and I fear that my children would be forced to keep their sexuality when they develop one a secret while they were with their grandmother as well.
The money that this raises will be used to move us to Alaska, where my best friend, and one person I can count on in this country to help me get on my feet again. It would be enough to get us set up for a couple of months until I am able to find a permanent home, and a solid job.
We’re at 2.5% of our goal and we have a long way to go. It occurs to me that I never mentioned the rewards on this blog. It isn’t much, Words in a novel. 3 words per dollar that you donate, and I would send you the chapter that they occur in. When its over the novel should be long enough for me to publish on the amazon market place.
Please if you can’t donate please share, my girls and I want to get out of this abusive household that seems to only be getting worse in recent days.
