Hello to all who are reading this! I find myself at a place where I’ve never been more humbled. In recent months I lost my sweet sweet mother. Before her passing she was very ill on and off for several months. I was her main caretaker through it all, and had to take quite a bit of time off of work. My dad was unable to be of any help financially or physically, as he is still recovering from a major stroke. I wouldn’t have it any other way though, because I got to spend precious time with her that I will always love and cherish for the rest of my life.
My mom’s passing was sudden and traumatic. I so wish I could take the time off of work to get to take care of my mental health but that is currently out of the question as I am in so much debt after having taken time off to care for her. To help me with bills during that time, I took out so money loans that are now coming due. I have completely overextended myself, and I find myself broke at every payday. Actually, I am more than broke, my bank account is negative from payday to payday. It’s so bad off at this point, that today I find myself unable to pay my bills, put gas in my car, or even buy groceries.
I am embarrassed and ashamed to be in this position as an adult woman with a decent job. I do work, I work very hard and I am now looking for a second job to help make ends meet during this time. This too will put more strain on me emotionally and physically, because although my dad is somewhat independent after his stroke, I still need to provide care for him.
My immediate need is for $5000 to help bring my bank account current and pay this months bills. Ultimately my goal is to earn $25,000 to get myself out of this gigantic mess. I hope and pray that this can happen, so I can finally release the burden of my financial stress and continue to heal from the loss of my mom. I know this is a lot to ask, and I wish I knew of another way to fix it. Anything that anyone can do to help would be so very much appreciated. I do promise that one day I will pay it forward when I’m finally in a place to do so. Thank you and God bless.
