I am Brook, I am from a small town and I take care of my small family, and I am struggling. My boyfriend and the father to my son recently injured himself and is unable to work. He broke his fibula in his ankle and has to have surgery. Until he is written off by his doctor he cannot return to work. I work 40 hours a week at a convenience store and bring home on average 650 every two weeks. We have a 2 year old little boy who has needs of his own.
What I would not love more in this world is if my depression and anxiety could get better. This situation has most horribly put a grey cloud over my life. It may just be a small break for his ankle but it is a huge break in on the inside. I am beginning to develop depression and stress day in and day out.
Even just a little help would do some wonders as for I have to pay a hefty amount of 700$ for rent and around 200$/ month in utilities and other important expenses such as groceries, toiletries, car insurance, etc. I also just recently had to fill up my propane tank which cost me 485$, and I still haven’t been able to pay it off in full. At my last resort, I am asking for any help.
I recently purchased a car with the stimulus check I received and I need the money to buy the insurance and tags otherwise I am a magnet for traffic tickets. I bought the car when I did not expect Cody to break his ankle and be down for God knows how long.
I don’t know if I can get through this period of time on my own, I make too much for food stamps and economic assistance. In reality, I do not want to live with myself any longer. I am starting to push the blame onto myself for all our financial problems.
Also my boyfriend cannot withdraw unemployment because he did not have a job before his accident. He had a sidejob with his best friend, but he wasn’t really making any real money
I want to thank anyone who decides to read this and can help me. I couldn’t appreciate it more.
I am in desperate need to keep my family afloat, especially in the world we live in today. Thank you. PayPal.me/brookscookies
