Earlier today I was driving to pick up my husband from work, got distracted by my son in the back seat, and rear ended another car. No one was hurt and I have full coverage but my deductible is $500 and I just don’t have that right now. This is my second accident this year and my husband is furious. We were barely able to get enough money together to get this car after I totaled the last one. Now with bills coming up and him being angry with me, he’s insisting I come up with the $500 or he’s leaving me. I don’t work, he wanted me to take care of our kids full time, I don’t have anything. I won’t have a place to live, any way to take care of our two kids or anything if he makes me leave. Friends and family don’t have the means right now and I just don’t know what to do anymore. My immediate family moved all the way to Georgia and I’m in California. My parents are still raising my younger siblings so financially they can’t help too much. Without a car I cannot get my daughter to and from school reliably and that is one of the most important things to me. I don’t know how my husband will get to and from work, assuming that he doesn’t actually kick me out. We are a one income and one car family. This car is everything to us, without it without it I don’t know how we will survive. Basically my whole world depends on whether or not I can come up with the $500 to get our car fixed, I feel helpless. It was my fault and I feel terrible. If I could go back to work to pay for it I would, but with two young children it’s almost impossible. I try my hardest to go out of my way and help friends and family that need it and now I really need help.
