I’ll start off with telling you a little about myself before I get into why I’m in need of help. I’m 22 years old, I have 2 beautiful pups that keep me motivated. I grew up in and out of different homes due to my parents being drug addicts and not having custody over myself and siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 just leaving me with my mom and step dad. My step dad is currently in prison for 17 years and my mom is still struggling with her addiction. At the age of 10 I was abused by my aunt’s husband, physically and sexually. I was brave enough to come forward and get myself and my siblings out of the situation. We then moved in without Grandmother, she was the best thing to ever happen to us. I decided to start taking care of myself when I was 18, moving out on my own and taking on a list of responsibilities no one had prepared me for. I struggled for a long time trying to figure out how to budget myself.
I’ve always been one to hold a job and work hard at my job. I’ve currently been working a full time position at the same company for the last 3 years, unfortunately due to covid our hours have been cut. I’ve found myself once again drowning in bills. I try my hardest to catch up only to have one more thing go wrong in my life. I have recently had a few deaths in the family causing me to miss work for the funerals. Here is a list of all of my bills and the amounts due. Mortgage- $903.74, Car payment- $340, Electric bill- $460.86, Water bill- $200, Cell phone- $500. Trying hard to pay my mortgage first as I don’t want to lose my house and be homeless. I’m currently living off of ramen noodles to try and be able to pay off my bills, I slowly make payment on them when I can.
I really appreciate you taking the time to read about me and what I need some help with. I’d like to thank anyone in advance for helping me get back on my feet. Your kindness and graciousness will never be forgotten. You’ve given a young person a second chance at being able to make it in this harsh world.
