It has been a terrible time around here. In the last six months, we have had to replace our furnace, water treatment system new well and finally, the sump pump had to be dug up and redirected. I have depleted my savings and my emergency funds. We were okay, the month was almost over. Our truck broke down and the repairs initially were $4324.89 then I got a call this afternoon that there will be an additional $2076.00 for the brakes. I tried to put these repairs off but I cannot. Even when my pension comes in this will be more than double what my disability payment is. I live in the country and cannot be without a vehicle.
I worked so hard in places that were unpleasant, to say the least. Now, instead of helping people I desperately need help. I cannot make my mortgage payment and feed myself and pay for all of this. I am trapped in my home with no hope.
I am desperate, if anyone can help please help me. I have done everything I can to help myself. I have sold the majority of my belongings and cashed out any savings or investments I had just to pay for the water treatment and well. I am tapped out. I always believed in helping others but I guess this year it’s my turn.
Please I know everyone is struggling right now, I get it, but if you can see your way to giving even just a couple of bucks you would be keeping a veteran from losing everything.
If you have read this far thank you! I am hoping to raise $6400.89 to get my truck back. Because it needs brakes I cannot even bring the vehicle home to work on it or even sell it.
