Hello name is Jacqueline Gil, I’ll start off by stating the reasons I’m on this website first. Today (2/4/19) on my home from school (East Los Angeles Community College) I rear ended a Mercedes Benz while making a right turn on Monterey Pass Rd with my 2009 corolla and my bumper and headlight on the passengers completely shattered. I wouldn’t be on this website if i had full coverage but i don’t, i only have liability because of money problems, and this persons Mercedes only received a cracked tail light so i’m mostly worried about funds to fix my vehicle.
2 weeks before Christmas i had gotten into a pretty bad accident (again only having liability) which lead me to spend my college savings of almost $2,000 in repairs only to pay for more repairs. These are my first and only accidents since I’ve had this car. The first accident almost totaled my car, which lead to fix it at a back yard body shop that charged me really cheap but i got what i payed for since it’s all i had and now the second accident caused my car to mess up the transmission again.
Besides my car problems, I’m constantly battling money hardships especially since both of my parents are deceased. Both from cancer, father from lung (non smoker) when I was 6 and mother from stomach cancer when i was 14, in 2012. I had to move in with my aunt which was the only relative I had living in the US besides my brother who at the time was a drug addict. But she never really treated me like her family, she would give me $5 a week as a high school student which was barely enough for my bus rides to and from school and that’s it, as she weekly gambled at casinos and bought food for her and only her. I finally bought my own car with the money i received from SS, and was promised to be given the money they gave my aunt for taking care of me when i turned 18. I am now about to turn 21 and have not received or even been offered to talk about the money i was promised. Instead i am constantly being reminded that i can get kicked out of her house at any given moment just because she feels like it. I am also currently battling depression so I find everyday tasks extremely hard to put up with, even getting up for school i have to literally force myself every day. I’m taking medication for it (trazodone hydrochloride) because i struggle every single day to fall asleep. I have no one to turn to and I’m a full-time student with a part-time job as a cashier. Regarding my brother, which is the only immediate family member I have left, is currently homeless living in his car and is not allowed in the house i’m living in at the moment. I wish i can help him out too because he wants to join the army to get his shit together but he still owes money from traffic tickets and other court stuff but i really can’t.
I’m begging …I will literally just take what i can get at this moment, i just want to fix my car so i can keep going to school and work…
if you have any questions or think lying about any of this i am more than happy to share more with you through email. thank you.
