I am in complete utter despair & every single area of my life is hopeless. I work in the faith field, so I do know God. I have helped & prayed for people as a living. I genuinely can’t take another step. I have nothing. My mother is in a nursing home & her financial situation is bringing me to bankruptcy. She has become verbally abusive as I have given up everything to care for her. I feel like I am lying in the street dying as people step over me. I was in the hospital 2 weeks ago & am so ill with no support, no income, no hope. My husband told me he is leaving me and hasn’t entered my room since I’ve been home from hospital. 2 of my 3 children have abandoned me leaving my poor teenage to give up everything to take care of me. He works a part-time fast food job to buy me food. I want nothing more than to die.
