This is the most long shot request I have ever made in my life, which perhaps perfectly displays my level of desperation here. I found this website after being denied a personal loan just to clear my living expenses for the next 6 weeks before my next measly paycheck is deposited.
I so much want to show a photo of my beautiful daughter and I but am too embarrassed. The humiliation continues when I was searching for a photo in my laptop’s photo library. I was going to show the soles of my feet! However, being the amateur photographer, AND not-too-savvy tech guy, I do not know how to reduce a 2 MB picture to 0.5 MB that Begging Money requires.
The bond that daughter-father for me is incredible every moment we have had for the last 5 years since the divorce. She recently offered to massage my feet and took the photo with left foot untouched and her skills displayed on the right foot were not just noticeable, but remarkable in that this foot session was so random. I told a relative, (with no deep pockets; as most of my relative status is), and that relative brought back memories of my childhood taking care of my now-deceased father’s feet over 50 years ago! So, my daughter just randomly does this? It was a spiritual moment that somebody out there might relate to?
She must have commiserated that since this summer was physically devastating for me. The elementary child knew of my temporary disability of plantar fasciitis was not just physically painful, but emotionally added to my downfall as the second “gig” job I would do over summer was cancelled. Additional direct hits to my financial well-being, after being fully vaccinated, I got COVID! That illness was over-rated as I recovered easily since I am an avid athlete. There are not too many older Dads out there who do marathons when younger, and now just walking obsessively 10-mile days?
I do not have any other bad habits to prevent me from being gainfully employed: smoking, drinking, etc.
Anyway, I am requesting financial help to get my rent and living expenses paid on-time next month. My ego is hurt since paying off my credit cards for the past 3 years with a debt consolidation firm is going too slowly, and I cannot qualify for those pre-approved junk mail offers that visit my mailbox, weekly. I am on track to be debt-free in two years. I have a plan to work another job to speed up this humiliating time in our lives as the holiday season quickly approaches.
This is really a last ditch effort but I had to at least try!
I would forever be grateful!
Thank you for bearing with me! A man can dream!!
Love and take care everyone!!
Proud and Desperate Dad,
