    My landlord bullied us out of the house with NO warning. She has 2 weeks to live and wants to die in her house. He family came over started throwing my childrens toys out. I am now at a hotel with 4 children. I thought I would be ok because I start work Monday. Well because I have 4 children this is the last night I can stay in the hotel. With no car not family, I call and call and call and call and.... Get another phone number to call. It's an never ending cycle of I cannot help you. I don't understand why we have homeless shelters that NEVER have room. I started getting tortured and burnt as a toddler. I fely like I have been through so much garbage by myself I could NEVER brake. I am braking. I literally have to much I can't handle the emotional ride of not knowing. I just need a little help. A little guidance and I promise I won't stop. I have came to accept that I am bad luck and life is nothing but horrible moments with rare seconds of laughter. What I can't picture is me and my 4 kids on the street. Unfortunately I have lived in multiple parks and cars as a late teenagers/young adult. So I know the world don't give a damn about me. But I'm begging someone to care about my babies. I cannot fail. But unfortunately I have already. Please someone please hear my cry for help not for me. I am a worthless human who has never tried drugs and had a 4.2 GPA but somehow it doesn't mean anything without a little support. Someone please help we are going to die out here and I am the why
