I recently completed 90 days of rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. I have battled with this disease for most of my life. My fiancé died very suddenly 7 years ago, and that’s when I lost everything and my life really began to spiral out of control. Until recently, I was somehow always able to continue working & paying my bills.
I almost died this past year. In order to save my life, I left my jobs (3 of them) and went out of state for treatment. I am 3 1/2 months sober now. I’ve had 26 months sober in the past; I was blessed with this time through working the steps of alcoholics anyonymous, doing what my sponsor told me to, being of service to others, and relying upon God.
Since I was unable to work while being in treatment, all of my bills (car, phone, insurance, credit cards) have stacked up immensely. I’ve called all my creditors to make them aware of my current circumstances and have just had to let much of this go for now.
I moved into a sober living home, as I’m afraid to go back to my city, where there is a lot of temptation and old triggers. I’ve built up a strong support network where I am at and am trying to do what’s best for my recovery and to start fresh.
I have no money to pay rent or buy groceries at this point (or pay any of the above bills). All of my savings are gone. I have about $30 to my name right now (would be happy to share a screenshot of my bank account for proof). I’ve been aggressively applying for jobs out here…I’m looking for any work at all, no matter how big or small. I’m fighting for my life and trying to get back to being a productive member of society. I’ve always been a hard worker & have never begged for money before. I just need some help getting by for the next month as I continue to look for work. My rent is $1,000 and I don’t need to eat very much.
Any help that you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I’m happy to send more info or details if you would like. This is a genuine plight for help.
Thank you you for taking the time to read and in advance for any help you can provide, no amount is too small.
