Hello. I recently had oral surgery, and it has taken me a while to heal. I’m a single woman with respiratory issues, bad allergies, and unpredictable kidneys. Still, I manage to work a full-time job and a part-time job. I don’t receive any government assistance (welfare, food stamps, WIC, etc.) whatsoever. I’m a hardworking person, and I’m just asking for a little bit of help.
I recently had to quarantine myself because I couldn’t risk getting any sicker than I already was after the surgery. My leave is unpaid. I have not received any funds for short-term disability. My income taxes are taking a long time to process, as well. I’ve been waiting 10 weeks for the refund, and they still can’t tell me when they’ll be done “processing” my return. This is the first year I’ve ever had a delay, and it’s happening at the worst time ever.
My situation has caused me to get into a financial bind. I can’t work right now, and I have no family, friends, or significant others who can assist me. I cannot take out a loan as I’ve already tried. I have to pay my rent, and I need a little extra money for food deliveries because I can’t get around too well. I’m just trying to survive for the next two weeks, and then I’ll be okay.
If there is anyone out there with a kind heart, I am asking that you send me whatever you can. The exact amount I need is $775 for the rent, and I reckon about $200 so that I can buy food every day for two weeks. That’s a total of $975. I know it’s a lot, but it’s what I need. Once I heal up, and this ordeal is over, I can get back into my job and start taking care of myself the way that I always have. I just need someone to lend a helping hand so that I don’t go under, lose my place, and become malnourished because I can’t get food.
I will appreciate anything that you have to offer. Every little bit helps, and I will be extremely grateful. I will also pay it forward and help someone else if I ever get a chance to do so. Thank you for reading my story, and I really hope that you can find it in your heart to help me see my way through this tough time.
