Hello, thank you for taking the time to read this. I am currently in a situation. I have fallen behind on paying some of my bills.
I lost my job a few months ago. Currently I have a new job but have taken a reduction in what I’m getting paid. Fortunately I had enough for my rent but not for my energy bill that has fallen behind. I am currently on a payment plan for my last bill but not for this one. It bought me some time to try and conjure up some money but no results.
On top of misc. Living expenses. I don’t really know where else to turn. My desperation is increasing and don’t have a good support system. If someone could help me out with anything that would be more than wonderful. Ideally I would need $400.00 to survive. Majority of the $400 would go to paying off the electric bill so I can start fresh and not lose power. While the remaining would be for basics but pretty much only on food. I’ve cut out spending on anything else.
I’ve been rationing my meals everyday, even skipping them just to save for later in case I get into something like this again. Basically adjusting my life to meet the needs of what I can afford. Counting my pennies. Calling in favors with nothing going through. Have nothing of worth to pawn. Not sure where else to turn. It’s is one of the most stressful and rough times I have ever experienced in my life. I feel that usually I am good at at least managing things. Trying to be a good person these days is next to impossible. The weight of just doing the right thing can just make you lose a lot of yourself. I never did think that I would at any point in my life get here. I question often what is even the point?
My job loss has really just spiraled me into a state of just helplessness. I’ve always been a hard worker. I’ve always been on time and sacrificed so much to make sure others are taken care of. In the past Ive always left on my own terms. But now it’s turned everything upside down for me.
Again if anyone can help that would be amazing. I know that this is probably the longest shot ever, regardless I thank anyone who takes any time to just read this.
