Hello, I’m a 33yr single female who has hit rock bottom. It is hard to ask for help and I hope one day I am in a place I can return this favor.
I work in the veterinary field which has one of the highest suicide rates. I love what I do and I will never stop, but the emotional toll it takes is unbelievable. From watching patients you invest your blood, sweat, and tears into pass away despite everything you do on a daily basis, to angry clients who are upset and tell us we are in it only for the money. if that was the case I would not be here. I love everyone one of my patients as if they were my own. Since COVID and even before, we are so short staffed, overworked, and under paid. I spend 10-18 hours a day working, taking extra shifts, etc to try and make ends meet but I just get further in debt trying to get out of debt. I recent had a medical injury and am unable to take my normal OT shifts which drastically effects my paycheck.
It’s that’s one card that you maxed out, or the never ending bills that creep up.
Unfortunately, I have a $15000 vet bill that I wouldn’t undo because my animals are my everything, my kids. But I am learning how to manage their expenses and trying to live in my limits. But over the last 2 years, I have lost 2 fur babies suddenly to cancer, 2 who currently need daily medication with life ending diseases. It all adds up so fast but I would do anything for my animals, including posting here.
My rent is past due, but I spent it on my friend for vacation after she finished chemo and beat cancer who had never truly taken a vacation. Worth every penny except now I barely have pennies.
Bills are piling up faster then you could think possible.
I just wish I could hit a reset button, pay off my loans and bills, and debt, etc. To start my life over again with a clean slate and lessons learned. That is what your donations would do for me, give me a new start at life where I can act smarter, save my money, manage my expenses, and do it right.
I’m scared I won’t make my rent this month and my power will be shut off and me and my fur babies will be living out of my car.
Vet bill, loans, maxed CC… It is hard to admit all this but the burden it has on me is crippling. It is depressioning and yet I try so hard to smile and make it through the day. But it seems like I am drowning in all this. Like trying to get through quicksand, the harder you try the more you sink. I just want to reset and redo my life expenses, please help me accomplish this.
I hope one day, thanks to you, that I will be in a place I can return the favor.
