Hello there my name is Mike. I’ve recently fallen on hard times. I was being harassed at the workplace. I reported it to management and a week later with no warning I was terminated. I had no heads up. So here I am stuck without groceries or let alone a penny to my name.. I’ve already pawned and or sold anything I had worth value to make it this far. I’ve applied to so many jobs with no response, I check in every few days. I’m halfway through the month and I’m not sure how I’m going to even keep my place at this point. Electric was due yesterday. My rent will be due the November 1st. I’m not asking for anyone to pay all my bills and financial burden. I’m just trying to have food on the table til a job opening pulls through and I land back on my feet. I also have a dog that I’m honestly taking better care of than myself which I know sounds pretty bad but we’ve never been this bad off. I’ve turned to food pantries and local churches, they only get you so far though. I’ve exhausted most of my resources including family. I feel terrible asking for a hand but everyone needs help sometimes right?
I’m pretty desperate I’m trying to type this at the local library without tears in my eyes. There are people all around me and I would hate to embarrass myself even more than asking for help…. I believe my phone will be off on the 20th of this month to top it off. I don’t know how a job can even contact me without a phone, they can’t.. I don’t need a million dollars. My phone bill is $40 and I’ll eat ramen noodles til they are coming out of my ears. I honestly need dog food and groceries to last me til the end of the month.
It’s the seasonal time of the year I’m sure I’ll have something turn up soon, I’ve got my fingers crossed. Anything helps. No matter how big or small. I truly appreciate any one who reads this and feels the want or need to help. I believe everything happens for a reason. This didn’t happen by chance it happened to show me that I can get through anything, I’ve got to just keep my head up and swallow some of my pride.
Thanks for taking the time out of your day to listen to someone that you don’t even know. I’ll push through this.
