Never in a million years did I think I’d be in the position I am in now.
Hi! My name is Sonya and I’m 43. I have always held a job, had good credit, paid my bills, donated to charities….ect. until my world fell apart in October 2018.
I was married for 7 years, I went to Philadelphia to visit a family member who was ill. I was gone for 2 weeks. I had enough paid time off at work to be gone for that long. During the 2 weeks of my absence, my husband met someone and he “fell in love”. I found this out when I was waiting for him to pick me up at the airport after my trip to Philadelphia.
He text me the heart breaking news. He also informed me that he would be moving out of our 4 bedroom home, that we had been renting for the last 3 years, the next day.
I was also informed that the women he met was a co-worker that had convinced my boss that my 2 week absence was not going to visit an ill family member, but that I was in drug rehab, which lead to me being fired from my job.
I filed for unemployment was denied the benifits. So I filed an appeal but, I lost the appeal as well.
After 4 months of absolutely no income, I was evicted on February 1st, 2019.
I am now homeless, my credit score is shot, as I had to take cash advances to pay the rent and have not made one payment on the cards. I now have an eviction on my record and am unable to rent a place of my own. My car has been repossessed, due to not making any of the payments.
I’m lost, I feel hopeless, My heart is broken and I’m not mentally stable enough to start a new job.
Anyone reading my plea for help, I beg for any type of assistance. I have no one to turn to. I don’t know how it all went so wrong.
