I did not think I would ever need to do something like this.
I am, as the title says, stuck in a rut!
I have been trying to get myself back on track for the past few years after having what I can only describe as a serious breakdown.
I saved myself from eviction, I landed a decent job, I’m still managing to keep my child alive ans well so that is fantastic!
Recently, I took out a loan to consolidate some of my debts and pay off my rent arrears. I made a lot of stupid decisions in life, especially with money, when I was in my teens and decided now was the time that I needed to step up and sort it all out. This worked out pretty well and I was feeling like things were going right for once. I still struggle and I’m still working on being financially stable but I was doing better and getting better.
Last week during the Easter break, we found out that uncle in Jamaica passed away. My family is devastated, my mum (as he was her brother) especially. Everyone is now trying to pull together to pay for everyone to get to Jamaica for the funeral. With my financial situation, I was feeling guilty that I couldn’t help. So I made the decision to apply for a loan. Because of my previous troubles with finance, it was proving difficult, but one loan company called me and accepted me..or so I thought. I requested 10,000 over 36 months. Enough to help cover a few flights at least, whatever else would be needed to cover funeral costs and if I was lucky, a bit left over to pay off some more debt. Instead, I was scammed. I did not have much money to begin with and they took everything I have. I can only blame myself for being so naive I guess. I’ve been left unable to help my family or even help myself. I don’t know how this works or even if it really does work but I have to give everything a try although I really want to give up. If there really are individuals out there offering help, I cannot even express how grateful I would be. Sorry for the long text.
