Hi Everyone -
My name is Tony, I am 24 years old and currently live in New York, NY. Im originally from Baltimore, Maryland. Recently this year has been a roller coaster ride for me and my family. The year started off good, but as the year progressed, it became stressful. In March, my dog Simba (best friend and brother) of 13 years passed away of Cancer. He was very sick and was on his last days. I was able too see him before he passed, but it was still very hard coping with his death being that he was my first pet. My parents got him for me when I was 10 years old so it was definitely hard letting him go. Its going to be the first Christmas without him this year so I am trying hard too move on, but I probably never will. Then over this past summer, both of my Grandmothers (Great Grandma and Grandma) both became severely ill. My Great Grandmother is in the Nursing Home. She has Colon Cancer
My grandmother had a health scare and was rushed too the hospital with chest pains. She is a smoker and I hope that it is not catching up with her. The fear of losing both of my grandmothers is frightening me. I already lost my dog and too lose both of my grandmothers or even just one of them will break me. The doctor said prepare for my great grandmothers last days 😭 On top of all the family stress going on in my hometown of Baltimore, I am currently in NYC working everyday and stressed. I have been out of school for over a year now because I owe my school $2500.00 and they will not let me return back until I pay them the money. I work in retail and my parents cannot give me the money, so I do not know when I can return back too school. The stress of my family, school problems and work problems are getting to me you guys. To make things even more complicated, my job will not let me request extra time off during the holidays this year making it difficult for me too see my grandmas during the holidays. I just wanted the day after Thanksgiving off and 1 week off for Christmas and they are not letting me request off because of it being busy shopping days. I swear I am about too just give up. I dont know what to do. I dont know how my life came too this. Please give advice and help! 😭😭😭 Thanks.
