I’m Elle, 23, and employed full-time. Right now, I’m putting all pride aside and shelving my principles because I am frantic and hard-pressed for a solution. In essence, I’d like to ask for anything from $10 to $1000 (I need $1000 total) to help with my cell and energy bills. I fell into a coma at the start of the year that left me unable to work for two months, and am consequently in a financial pinch. I’m back at work full-time and recouping financially the best I can, but paychecks only go so far. Currently, I’m at serious risk of losing my phone service and electricity if the bills aren’t paid immediately. This isn’t to mention what’s still remaining in medical bills. Please, I need help, and anything will help. I promise, I’m not here to take advantage of anyone or their kindness, and if this wasn’t so urgent, I’d be handling this with more couth. I mean, I hope it’s clear I’m here not to solicit money for the sake of doing so, but because I am genuinely in a bad situation right now. If you have no interest in helping, no offense taken.
Finally, I’d like to make note of one thing:
I don’t want to fall into further debt by taking on a high-interest loan to pay off what I don’t/won’t find the money for unless some mf’er up there shows me some luck.
I will eventually find my way out of this debt, but it won’t be by assuming another debt. Hopefully it’ll be with the help of some kind strangers. <3
