Hi. I am 45 years old. Have always tried to do the right thing. Throughout my life, I have Opened my house to many people in need. Being there for others is a great thing but when it’s you in need and having to ask, is altogether different. But I do need help. Let me explain…
for 24 years, I was a music director and praise & worship leader for a church. Loved every minute of it. Once my Dad became sick, I had to help with him and a lot of planning for a career was put on hold. And I would do it all over again just to have a few more days with my Dad. He passed away 3yrs ago. In the meantime, my Mom became quite ill. So, I moved Out of my home and in with her. Took care of her for 3yrs until she passed, suddenly, last Nov. Needless to say, my whole world fell a part. I moved From Tn to Sc because of needing new scenery. Once here, I stayed with someone for a little while. It was supposed to be until I could get on my feet. With only a part time job, making $7.53 an hr, that was impossible. I finally have a job with a hotel. I’m a night auditor and though it’s not much money, I do Love my job. The problem is, it’s so expensive here. I need to get a car but can’t come up with a down payment. I’m driving my dads car but have to turn it into the dealership because it’s not in my name, tags are out, apartment complex is going to tow it, utilities are late, rent is almost due again, $840, I’m working all the time to try and stay afloat. The storage unit is due and has all of my parents treasures in it. I just Feel so overwhelmed. I cannot Completely grieve my Mother because I’m always having to turn some difficult corner. I have 2 little dogs that have been with me for 14yrs. They are ALL I have. I do Not know where else to turn. A shelter is impossible because I’m not giving up my puppies. I’ve lost way too much already. I also Don’t spend money. It’s only on the apartment, utilities and some food. No extras. I’m trying to do door dash but can’t now because my tags are out. My best-friend passed away 2 months before my Mom. It’s just all been way too much. Anxiety & depression is at an all time high and I need Help so I can get ahead.
If you can do anything at all, please help me? I don’t Drink, smoke or do drugs.
I just Want to live.
Thank you so much!
