I am a 54 yr old mother of 3 married for 26 years. I am not in any dire need of money. My husband has been employed for over 30 years and our children are also employed. We have a mortgage, a car payment, utility bills and monthly expenses.
I am currently unemployed. After being laid-off in 2016, I was able to get a job in 2017 as a receptionist. I quit this job to help my brother care for my mom after she had multiple strokes. She is doing much better and has frequent visits from other family members. In 10/2019, I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage (brain aneurysm). The neurologist placed a neural stent to stop blood flow through the vessel and placed coils in the bulge to clot the blood. We have been monitoring its progress every six months with an angiogram. There is still some blood flow and he spoke about the possibility of me having open-brain surgery to place clips on the vessel.
So I have been working on creating a digital art business so I can work from home in case of a medical emergency. This would allow me to contribute financially to the household and I could also pay off some of our loans.
~8k – car loan
~11k – car loan
~4k – credit card
~2k – iPad, digital apps
Total = $25,000.00
This is a rough estimate of expenses and items I would like to pay off. Thank you in advanced for any help received. Sincerely, Pililani.
