Today I found myself in a bit of an emotional situation. I work at a local hospital in the Nutrition and Dinning Department as a Stocker for nurses stations Nourishment Pantries. I am responsible for making sure the food is always available for the patients when they need it.
I found myself overwhelmed during this pandemic. Plus, there are rules that state that if you show any symptoms that you cannot return to work until you receive a negative test result. I was losing money basically. I got behind, FIRST, on my utilities, then on my rent. I couldn’t take the stress and began drinking to sedate myself.
I realized I was spiraling and had my doctor take me out of work to sober up and get my stress level in check. I am now on California State Disability. My landlords expressed to me that they didn’t want to deal with it any longer and that they wanted their Condo back. Today I signed an agreement to leave and they would forgive any expenses owed to them and no bad blood between us.
I now find myself with a short time to get into another place and not enough time or money. I have prayed and searched for loans and I’m coming up with nothing.
I NEED YOUR HELP!!! I promise to pay it forward in the future to someone who I know is struggling. I need to get into a stable studio, at least, so that when I do go back to work in November I won’t be sleeping on couches.
