This is an interesting way to ask for help. Now that I am aware of it, when I get things in order, I will know how to help others as well.
First, nothing sets me apart from anyone else that needs assistance. I think this is all relative. We need help from time to time, and right now it seems that my turn has come.
This year has brought quite a few financial issues, along with several illnesses, and missed work, and a 19 month old to take care of in the process.
First, i need help with my car. It was hit by 2 men and a truck back in march, There was a witness, and significant damage done to the side. Currently, only one door works, and this car is essentially a fire trap. I do not have the money to pay my deductible, and I also do not have the funds to proceed legal defense. This happens all the time in the city of Philadelphia, and every call placed has yielded zero results. I need to get my car fixed soon, as the inspection period has passed, for which i have also already received a ticket.
I had some health issues in the beginning of the year, but the most pressing at the moment is getting into a dentist without insurance to get some serious work done. I started this journey before the pandemic, and had to get scaling done because I was a smoker at the time. This cost me a few thousand dollars, but that was ok at the time. Now i have had a few back teeth extracted, and i need another one extracted, and I have to see about getting partials, or implants. Implants are going to be incredibly costly, so partials are the way to go. I would like to have the funds to be able to start this process.
I work in the restaurant industry, and I also work with a medicine to help people, called Kambo. It’s a lot to go into right now, but I haven’t been taking clients due to the fact that my life has been in upheaval, and i can not properly be there for others, when I am not completely in order myself. Once I can pick this back up, I know that things will be profitable again, and things will flourish. I just have let things go for myself a bit too long before seeking out help, and I also just feel it has been one thing, after another. That’s how these things seem to go. I’m trying to pep talk myself out of it, but reality seems quite loud, and harsh when you have a young one to look after as well.
Childcare is another big thing, I want to be able to work more but need access to funds to afford child care more regularly.
I am looking to at least get 6500. This will start the process on my car, and start the process on some dental work, aiding in child care, and by the middle of the new year, everything should balance out.
I truly appreciate the forum to speak, and am grateful to anyone who is able to take the time and listen, and help out. I appreciate this more than I have words. Whatever the outcome.
