My name is Julie. It doesn’t feel right to spill out a sob story or to ask anyone for financial help, but I’m struggling and I have to put my pride aside. I work full-time and do freelance work whenever possible, but after some major transportation issues and medical bills this month it has become clear that I won’t be able to completely cover my rent. I’ve pawned off and sold. I’ve been taking showers at a friend’s home and I’ve been avoiding nearly all electrical use (despite this freezing weather) to keep my utilities payments as low as possible. If I can just get the rest of this month’s rent collected, $300, I know I can work hard and get back on track. I’m terrified I won’t make this payment, so I’m asking you for help.
Thank you for your time, and may your day be full of bliss.
