I want to start out by saying, I have never asked anyone for anything, and this is so hard for me to do. I am a single mom of 2 children, always worked hard in the corporate world to provide a beautiful life for my children. I never dreamed my life would be turned upside down at the end of December. Sadly, I was laid off from my job at the end of 2018, that same day, my son had his first suicide attempt. The months that have followed has been a constant battle mentally, financially, and my strength has been tested. My son had a second mental breakdown, and to further my hardship, my ex chooses this time to stop paying child support leaving me no choice but to start legal proceedings. I have desperately sold anything of value, maxed out every credit card, just trying to keep our home, pay for utilities, keep everyone feed, in addition to paying my son’s medical bills, hospital stays, counseling, and medicines. I was so thankful to finally get a new job and told myself everything is about to start getting better. Sadly, I was informed days before I was supposed to start that they decided to make some changes internally and had decided to post-pone hiring till a later unknown time.
I am trying to be strong, but the reality is, I am weeks away from losing our home if rent ($1550) is not paid, losing my car (May 5, if a min of $525 is not paid), and it will be a miracle if the power company will give me another extension on the $325, I owe. On the outside, I am strong for my children, but I am terrified and as a last hope, I am swallowing my pride and asking for help.
Thank you in advance for your help and assistance.
