I've spent my career helping others, but help for me has never been there. Really need some help now to see me through the next few months.

First of all, I am truly ashamed to have to do this. I have been a paramedic for over 25 years, served on the air ambulance, and did have a great career. Through that time I also suffered domestic abuse, as did my son (now daughter), and spent the best part of 18 years in court with the price tags that come attached to that. I worked tirelessly to fund that, needing loans of course which I have worked hard to pay off. My child's father has not helped financially - and CMS/CSA have been useless - so all left to me. Despite the difficulties, I have raised an amazing human being. My son is now my daughter - and she has suffered so much because of this, but I have supported her throughout and she is now thriving (super proud). I had to leave the ambulance service to be there for my child as a single mum. Now I am unable to return due to health reasons. I have been working for 111 but this was zero hours contract and the work has tailed of to almost nothing. So I have started a First Aid Training Business but in the early stages. I am confident this will take off. I also desperately want to start a crystal business. So at the minute - my income is pretty much zero - I have enquired about benefits but been turned down (another kick in the teeth). So here I am, cap in hand. As I say - totally ashamed. But I need help to pay the bills and to help with my business - advertising and kit for the First Aid, and stock / advertising for the crystals. I have given so much to others and when I needed help from my government, they turned their backs. Now I don't really expect to get any help, but this was suggested by a friend. I am so sorry to be asking for help, I just need a bit of a hand currently. Thank you so much for reading through this.
