    Hey everyone. I'm Sam, a native New Yorker (aka trapped because it's too expensive to leave and my income is subpar). I'm "excited" to be on this forum, I'm looking forward to meeting like minded individuals as I'm in a bad place at this time. I feel trapped in my situation (living with a bad boyfriend and can't leave because I don't make enough money to meet 40x rent qualifications in NYC) and in my head, it's such a dark bad place. I'm 23, going to turn 24 in April, and my birthday is always a big deal. With my current situation (an evil boss, I'm basically an underpaid office worker treated like an intern after 4 years of dedicated work) I don't think I'm gong to make it to my birthday. I've been depressed since 13 and in high school it got worse. All this time, I've thought it would get better but with no health insurance, therapy ended up being a HUGE waste of time/money that could have been put into saving to leave my boyfriend and move from NYC to get a fresh start on my life.

    Thanks for reading and I look forward to getting to know you all! I do love helping others and each time it always brings me a smile, which in turn helps me :)
