Hello, I’m writing here today with the intent on seeing if I could attain some help with rent and other important bills. I have been working as a delivery driver for the past five years, which I love doing. But in late April of this year, I injured myself, falling in my home and it was difficult for me to get back up. I even had to call for emergency help, and a couple of very nice firemen helped me back up onto my bed. That one fall started a series of falls, two more, one of which was while I was trying to work. As I was picking up a delivery, I tripped over some gravel and fell right on my knee, scrapping my hand in the process.
Since that day of injuring my knee and hurting my hand, it has been extremely difficult for me to do any deliveries. The only reason why I’ve survived this long trying to support my household was because I had managed to save some money, but now that it’s been several months since hurting myself, I no longer have that to fall back on. Believe me, I don’t want to be a bum and not work. I would love to be able to go out and work like I’m used to doing. But since injuring myself, my balance has been off and my leg has been hurting me, and falling again during a delivery is something that I don’t want to happen.
It’s just myself and my uncle, and I don’t have anyone that I can ask for help. My mom passed away four and a half years ago, and my brother passed away two and a half years ago, and all I’ve been trying to do since is try to survive. I understand that so many of us are struggling nowadays with things, and I hope that one day I can be in the position to help others. Some of these stories are so relatable, and I wish we all had everything we needed without the struggle of trying to simply survive. If anyone could help out with any amount of donations, I’d highly appreciate it. I’m already behind on rent, with a late fee, and I’m also behind on other household bills. I thank anyone who reads this for taking the time to read my story. Much appreciation and much love. Be good to yourselves.
