I want to go home.

Just in n, Ontario,

My name is Samantha. I am 21 years old. I live in Canada. I really don't know what to write, honestly. I've never 'begged' before...I guess that's why this site is here, so people like me can still retain a little bit of a sense of pride. Anyway. I need some help. I'm trying to get out of an abusive relationship and I want to go back to Australia where I'm originally from. I miss home, I miss my family, and I need to get away because I'm in a pretty raw emotional state at the moment. I've dropped out of school and things just aren't working out. More than anything, I want to be able to take my dog with me. I know it sounds silly but he's the one thing I've held onto throughout all this and thinking of not having him scares me to death. It's already going to cost me around $3500 to move, and will be an extra $1500 - $1700 to bring him with me. Right now I'm still living with my ex. There isn't any food in the house and any money she's known about has always been spent on drugs/cigarettes instead. My pup is out of dog food and I've used up all of mine in an effort to keep him strong and healthy. I live in a place where there aren't any jobs - at least none that I'm qualified for. My lease is up in three weeks, so that's when I can leave. But I'm not sure where I'll go. I'm not looking for much. A dollar, two, three. It doesn't matter. All I'm doing right now is trying.
