I’m in tears. I just poured out my life here and went to do something and lost it all. So, I’ll start again
I am in need of my vehicle needing to be fixed. It is my only means of transportation. It’s $1500 as the converter cannot be aftermarket because the mechanic (whom I’ve had for over 15 yrs) says they aren’t lasting. I also have to get tires that are another $1300 plus mounting.
I was happily married for 20 years and then my husband left me. The life I lived was comfortable and he left me with very little. I have struggled since. Living paycheck to paycheck and eating very little. Selling my house to pay off our loans for his business. I did get a little money but it didn’t take long for it to be gone. I am currently $90,000 in debt between credit cards and my school loans. Plus I borrowed an additional $4000 from my son and$2500 from my brother. I am a teacher and have tried to work multiple jobs but it’s hard as I was working 7 days a week and many nights maybe 4 hours of sleep. I have extreme anxiety and between meds and needing 8 hrs of sleep, I wasn’t functioning well.
I was in a coma for 6 weeks in 2013. I pulled thru but it left me with medical expenses. Then the IRS said I owed them money. I now have them paid off.
It seems I take 2 steps forward and fallback 6. I just can’t get a break. If my parents were alive I know they’d help me but someone killed my mom 15 years ago and my dad died of health issues 4 years ago. Whatever inheritance I would have received, my dad left to his 2nd wife. We had no idea so it was a shock and disheartening. They were together 9 years to put that into perspective. She is a wonderful woman and definitely deserved something but never expected this.
I’ve talked enough, too much I’m sure. If you can help me in any way I am forever grateful. I just wanna be debt free and be able to live within my means. I don’t care I’m not wealthy anymore but this situation I’m in I really don’t deserve. No one does but I can’t get out and I so desperately want to. People always ask if you won the lottery what would you do? I look at them and say ” I don’t need the lottery but if I could win a lottery to pay off every debt I have, that is worth millions to me”
If you can give, it would mean the world to me. If you can’t thank you for reading and if you pray please include me in them as somehow I have got to get out of this situation.
P.S. As credit cards get paid off I am canceling them and cutting them up
