Hello, this is hard for me to do, but the fact of the matter is, I need help.
This past year has been incredibly difficult for me, to make a long story short:
I lost my job due to a serious injury, I also lived where I lived because of that same job. So not only was my job lost but my home as well. Thankfully my dog and I were able to find another place and eventually another job, but in the months in between that I racked up plenty of debt between medical bills and living expenses. This injury also means I may never indulge in my passion again, which is music, and playing instruments. I am unsure if I will ever be able to play instruments the same again because of it and this has driven me into a deep depression. I’ve sold as many music related things as I can to help myself during this time but it hasn’t been enough.
Recently my dog also had to undergo a surgery which has set me back even farther, and with missed payments and collection agencies breathing down my neck I can’t take this anxiety or depression anymore. I work so hard to provide for my dog and I, he’s my best friend, I’m probably still alive because of his love, and thankfully he’s okay after the procedure, but with this huge debt looming over us our future feels impossible.
I understand that there are more pressing and serious matters than this, our story is certainly not the most dire, but anything will help us. Every little bit helps, I thank you for taking the time to hear our story.
I’m scared to release too many details because I am scared of retaliation from my previous employer. If I am too vague I understand your apprehension and decision to not donate. I still thank you for your time to read this.
We’ve been on the brink of being homeless and sometimes still are. I can never express the gratitude I have, just for someone taking the time to read this let alone donate a dollar. I just don’t know what else I can do right now. I am working 2 jobs, 7 days a week to support us and pay down these bills but with debt over $10,000 in the past year alone I already have collections knocking. If you can spare anything, please help us.
