My family consists of 4 and we have recently fallen on harsh times.
I recently ended a 6-month contract job and the company ended up screwing me over (for lack of a better phrase). They told us temporary employees that they guaranteed if we worked well they would give us a permanent position. Near the end of my contract I was told I was a great employee and that they would recommend me for a full-time position. As it turns out, here I am 2 months later and they have not contacted me at all. I have been looking and applying everywhere including fast food restaurants and haven’t been contacted. I even went back to school and attained a Dental Assisting Certificate. I was the only one in the class to pass both state exams, I have been to countless interviews and STILL haven’t been able to attain employment.
My fiance was the stay-at-home parent as we homeschool our children. However, to make ends meet last month he took a temporary position. During his interview he was informed they had a permanent position and interviewed him for it as well. They told him they liked him and that he had the job after his contract was completed. Unfortunately, they ended up hiring someone else before the contract ended and didnt inform him until after.
We don’t have anyone we can depend on to help us and I’m truly on the verge of a break down. I try helping people out whenever I can. I have even allowed one family member to live with me rent free until they got back on their feet and another for 6 years and never asked for a bill to be paid or anything… but when ever I need help no one can come to my aid. Im so close to just giving up but I’m trying to keep it all together for my girls.
What is weighing heavy on my mind, has my stress levels through the roof, has me spiraling down depression road to the point where I cant even sleep is that currently we owe about a good $3000 in bills. These bills are in back rent (which we just received a court date for), our electric bill, our gas bill, our phone bill, a Verizon bill (I just had to cancel service because I have no way of paying it right now).
