As of this morning, I have to be out of my house on Sept 1st. My dad and I had an agreement where I would get money every month to pay for gas and bills and if I was taking classes and helping around the house, he would pay for my horse. For the past few months, I’ve been trying to get into a program called CLE (College Living Experience), which helps people who have Asperger’s Syndrome and other disorders achieve independence from their parents.
Because I’ve already lived independent from my parents and successfully been to college, CLE did not think I was a good candidate for their program. My mother also told them she does not think I am a good choice for their program because I ‘don’t act autistic’. Because of all this, my dad thinks I need to ‘learn a lesson’ and is kicking me out. I would not have a problem with this other than the fact that he is cutting me off 100%. I am currently looking for a job and I believe I’ll have a place to live. I don’t care if I have to sleep in my truck, the only thing I’m worried about is paying my horse’s board.
I’ve worked my ass off over the past four years to be able to keep a horse on little to no money. I’ve sacrificed everything to have a horse. I don’t have anything more to sacrifice. I have no money and currently no job. I’m taking a truck load of things tomorrow to be put down for consignment. I’m looking into selling my horse trailer. I’ll sleep on the streets if it means my horse is happy.
I have very few skills. I can write and act and ride a horse. I have little job experience because I have few skills and have Asperger’s, which makes it much harder for me to work.
I’m not looking for pity or anything of that sort. I just need a little help getting back on my feet and keeping my horse happy and well fed.
