Hello, hope all is well and that your soul is saved. I am here asking for help for the first time since I had my daughter 34 years ago. I am disabled since 2020 due to a long-standing hip and low back disorder which finally forced me out of my occupation as a hair stylist. Since then, I’ve been trying to earn money in other ways that might fit my physical challenges such as writing and vlogging, but this type of industry requires financial investment and a lot of time to promote and develop an audience in order to finally get paid enough to pay bills.
My savings has dwindled significantly during this time of attempting to cash in on other God given talents. I never would have thought that a loaf of bread would cost so much or the cost of anything necessary. I recently had to sell my house and move to another location. There are many improvements that I’ve had to make here at the new home and have been doing so for the past year which is chewed up funds for emergencies like this extremely high electric and gas bill. When I moved her last year the power company and gas gave me an even billing rate which expired last month which is how I received these two outrageous bills. In the meantime, the central heat and air at this house was causing problems because since I got here because of the way it was installed. On top of paying hvac technicians to fix it last summer, then winter and now this hot summer I might have it working properly but I had to run the air much just to keep up with the heat outside. Most of this summer I’ve had my mother here after her shoulder surgery which added to the utilities increase.
The gas company is charging me for the gas used when I was on the program over their anticipated allowance. At this point the financial stress of trying to pay all these additional bills is heavy, which is why I’m out here asking for help in this matter. I’ve called the programs they referred me to for help, but no one including the Salvation Army, Must Ministries, public assistance but have been unsuccessful at getting any contributions for this cause. Thank you for your time and whatever contribution you can make to help with these utilities.
