A couple of months back my dear old mother, who I live with, just us two as her husband and my father passed and I was younger. We don’t have contact with the rest of her family anymore.
She is the sweetest most intelligent funniest goofiest Woman you could ever know with quite the Pedigree and her masters at a private college.
As of Late has become increasingly difficult financially for the two of us in terms of her aging (but an inspiring kindred spirit) and dealing with intermittent periods of unemployment
Partially due to the fact of a bit of age discrimination it’s hard for her to get jobs despite the fact she has twice the experience of those people applying for positions she is well overqualified for
she’s a sweet woman with the best of intentions but her sense of paying attention to detail and recalling things will slowly fade for her
she recently I’ve been scammed by someone who had come to her under the guise of a mechanic at the shop that we usually go to
As I was not particularly involved in this whole situation
A night or 2 prior her car had broken down on the side of the highway and she was unable to afford a tow, he promised to tow it for her, now that’s 2 for 2 as Additionally
My car was also out of commission as my starter was broken and he said that he would fix that as well
He ended up Putting a broken part in my car receiving the rest of the payment for a previous brake job my mom got at the shop he had been employed at and took it for himself never gave her ignition key back never told her car
Leading to it getting towed and has been completely out of options as she used the very last of her money to try and save our employment situations by making it possible for us to get to and from
(Her job involves helping the community and seeing her clients at their homes or at her office all throughout the day sometimes 2030 minutes apart in destinations)
In the end, she ended up taking my car To another shop to get it fixed paying full price while her car was in an impound lot with no way to afford to get it out keep in mind she had to tow it from the impound lot to a shop all the while she couldn’t get inside because the scammer had left with her keys and all the money she gave him
This was three days before Christmas
As for lack of my involvement financially it’s due to a recent string of seizures and medical issues that he began to arise and have yet to be totally resolved
I went from grand mal seizures (once while driving) to partial complex seizures, dealing with hypoglycemia and severe panic attacks with no real way to offer as much support as I would’ve loved to
The days in between going to my neurologist and dealing with different health issues the restaurant business gets very very slow in the winter
Ranging from about $20 a day to 70 maybe 80 a day and being shorted scheduling wise (with understandable justifications)
Working the early part-time every day the very little I had I’d end up using for toilet paper or paper towels or dog food which is another struggle of itself The tide is just been rising in my usual “yin and yang” philosophy towards life and understanding that everything will resolve itself and time incorrectly I slowly been fading into a more jaded attitude. Rent, car insurance (that’s recently skyrocketed due to the neighborhood we recently moved to,any bit of food to eat or gas for transportation to our jobs that we so desperately need and want has been like finding a needle in a haystack.
Be that it is as it may Life continues as it always does but limited resources, family, and medical restrictions have led me here and I think anyone for even taking the time to read my poor sap of the story they only do the anonymous person reading this I’m usually much funnier and this was even a drag for me to write assuming I haven’t totally run a dark cloud and severe rain over your hopefully positive day
It would mean absolutely everything to me if anyone could help no Amount too small
Not a microsecond of your time spent reading this goes unappreciated. I am humbling looking for anything between $10 to $1300 to get us back on our feet.
And if humans aren’t your thing, my blue nose pitbull puppy, old man jenkins (8 year old yorkie) and cherub of a cat would appreciate it dearly.
All the love to you Anonymous reader, Godspeed
