Hey all, I’m Jen. I’m someone who hasn’t made the best choices in life. I never felt like I fit in and as a result spent many years depressed. I made poor choices, racked up credit card debt and student loan debt. I went many years without paying my bills and as a result defaulted on my student loans. I had a gambling problem to which I put myself on exclusion lists, so I could get it under control and I’m proud to say I do not gamble anymore. I have made great strides over the past 10 years and I have paid off all of my debit except for my student loads. I still owe just shy of 32k on them and I continue to make monthly payments, yet I don’t feel like I am getting anywhere.
I am also a Type 1 diabetic and the cost of my medications, WITH INSURANCE, takes most of my paycheck after rent, car payment, utilities and food. I also just found out that I have periodontal disease and will require an extensive amount of dental work, so I am asking for $40,000 in order to pay off my student loans and cover the cost of any dental work needed.
I work full time, am a good person who made some crappy decisions in life, but I am working hard to make a better life for myself. I just want a fresh start and need help paying off the last remaining, largest bill I have. I know this is a lot, and I know everyone has a reason to need money. But I even if I don’t get anyone to donate, I’ve lost nothing, it’s worth a shot. I hope you consider helping me, and if not, could you please share this with someone who might?
Thank you for the consideration and I promise to pay it forward if I have the means to.
