hello to whoever sees this,
I work for the railroad out of Texas and have been laid off since right before Christmas. It took a while to find a part time job until I got back to the railroad. By that time I was getting behind on bills and the money I made was just not anywhere close to what I needed. I struggled through for myself and my family, simply making sure my kids had food and rent was paid. Unfortunately I don’t qualify for unemployment, so that was out of the question to. I just paid a bill with my whole check and two days later the railroad calls me back… but they want me to go and work over 1300 miles from my house. Now I’m in a dilemma because I have no money to afford to travel that far and pay for food for myself while I’m on the road working until I get a half check from them at the end of March. I’ve been able to hold it down for my kids but now I can’t hold it down to hold it down for them anymore, and I’m heartbroken. If I can’t afford to travel back to work, I have to stay with my part time job and get farther behind until something closer to home opens up. I’ve never asked for any help from anyone. I’m 26 years old and have been on my own since the day I turned 17. I’m actually embarrassed for even asking for help but I can’t let my kids down and loans are out of the question. If anyone sees that and can offer anything it would greatly appreciated. And I will pay the amount forward once I’m back to my job and caught up on bills. I’ve always been a very giving person but now those people can’t seem to return the favor. Which I can accept. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and everyone have a blessed day, week, month and year.
