My name is Rick and I just want to tell my story. I have no idea where to start so I will just start writing and lets see where it goes. There have been so many things that have gone wrong in the past few years and I have no idea how to fix things.
I have a job as a delivery driver, it’s an ok job but it does not earn enough money to live on. I am not able to do much work as I have medical problems that prevent me from being able to work long hours in a better job. I also have back pain and can’t sit or stand for long. I found that my current job allows me the freedom to make my own hours and to also sit and stand for short periods of time so that I can last as long as I need to so that I can finish my shift. I work between 3 and 5 hours per day and at the end of my shift I am so tired that I need to go home and sleep for a couple hours.
I am also living with my brother and mother who are receiving disability payments as they have epilepsy and can’t work, I try my best to take care of them but it is hard. The prices of rent are going up but the government does not give anything extra for rent, they don’t pay enough to rent anything more than a dump of a house.
Money is always a problem with myself and my family. My car has many problems that I can’t afford to fix at the moment and it seems like the more I work, the more my car gets damaged and the more it gets damaged, the more I need to work so I can pay for my repairs. I have problems with my suspension brakes and oil leaks that I am currently not able to repair. I have had other problems before but I was able to break even each month, until things got worse.
Currently my brother was accused of stunt driving and is now facing charges, it turns out that he was asked to move his car from a no parking zone and when he drove away the lose gravel slid under his tires and that is what the police said was stunt driving. We had to borrow money from a friend and sell a bunch of our things so that we could pay a lawyer. The lawyer said that there is no evidence that he did anything wrong and that he would win, but we still need to pay $1500 to the lawyer.
So now my brother is afraid to drive because the police follow him around town so they can get him on anything else. This means that I now need to do all the driving for myself, my best friend, my mom, sister and her kids. It was so much easier with 2 cars in the family but now it’s just me. The reason why he does not drive as much anymore is the fact that he is now being treated for depression over the stress that the police have put him through. He was depressed before and the doctor treated him and he was doing much better, now he is back the way he was before. The police will not leave him alone, he has done nothing wrong but now has to go to court to fight a charge for something that he did not do.
So here I am, in need of car repairs, medical bills for my brother, lawyers fees, not enough food because the rents are getting higher, no money for Christmas and more.
There were once 4 of us living in my household, my mom and her husband who is also on disability due to an injury, my brother and myself. My moms husband left her and they are now getting a divorce because he said that he loves my sister and not my mother anymore.
He left us with a bunch of unpaid bills and a bunch of trash in the house that we now need to pay someone to have it taken away. We split the household bills and rent 4 ways, things were going well. He left and now things are crap, we can’t pay bills and are falling behind on almost everything.
