I can’t believe that I am actually here right now doing this. I won’t even ask people for 50 cents to buy a soda from a machine so this is my very last resort.
Please believe me when I say that I would not be posting this unless I needed it desperately.
I’ll start with what my situation is right now.
I am 32 years old and living with my parents in order to take care of them because they are both disabled and it happened quite suddenly. I don’t mind taking care of them because I would do anything for them but the problem right now is that I lost my job in March and I was the bread winner before that. The only income we have now between the 3 of us is my father’s disability and after paying bills, we’re lucky to have enough for more than what it takes to make a sandwich a day for each of us. I no longer have medical insurance because I could not pay the bill and i’m counting change to buy food on some days.
Before all of this, I had an amazing job, loved working, I paid all of the bills and bought all of the groceries and it felt so good to give back to these amazing people who raised me and loved me so much.
Now I have nothing and I am draining them instead of helping.
I am applying for jobs every single day obsessively but haven’t had any luck. I have to work from home because of having to be here for my parents so it’s even harder than a normal job search.
On top of all of this I’ve told you, I ended up being the victim of not one but two scammers.
I did a week of work, over 40 hours, for an employer who had me posting advertisements for their rental properties and then on the day I was meant to be paid, they disappeared and blocked me.
The second person promised me the world for my virtual assisting services. I was told that I would have benefits and be paid so much money that I would never have to worry about money again. They would tell me this over and over and then all they really wanted was to have me do some horrible money laundering for them so obviously I ran from that whole thing.
I’m not one to think people are all horrible because of the actions of one but those two people really broke my ability to see any good in people and my hopes are very shattered right now.
Because of all of this, I desperately need money to hold me over until I get another job and get back on my feet.
If someone can be gracious enough to help me out with this, I would be more than happy to donate here later on when I have money again so that I can show someone else the kindness that someone showed me.
I really doubt I’ll be lucky enough to get any help because I’m sure people have worse stories than me but hey, if you just took the time to read this, I have to thank you for that.
I’m not sure if I’m supposed to ask for a certain amount but I’m not greedy. Anything at all would help and probably make me cry happy tears before passing due to extreme happiness and relief.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
I know only one photo was asked for but I wanted to include another to make myself feel better about not looking like I’m full of it.
