Hi there! I never thought I would find myself writing something like this, so it’s painful and uneasy. I’m struggling to find the words other than, “Please help.” Up until three weeks ago I had a full time job, and now I find myself jobless. Thankfully, I had just enough money to skate by these past three weeks, but now I find myself with a bank account that’s 200 dollars overdrawn, a landlord who obviously needs their money, and pregnant.
Getting another job right now seems impossible, though I’ve tried! The second a business realizes I’ll need maternity leave in just a few weeks they politely pass – without actually admitting it’s because of the pregnancy, of course. I completely understand their position, but it’s still frustrating. I’ve overdrawn my bank account as much as I possibly can, and that was just so I could eat and pay my doctor bill. I’m in desperate need of help right now. I just KNOW I’ll feel well enough to get back to work after a month of maternity leave, and I’ll be trying to sell items and find online work in the meantime…but I can’t do any of this if I’m kicked out of my house or the utilities are shut off. Please, please consider donating and helping me out. I honestly think I could survive the next few weeks with just 2 thousand dollars. I think I can stretch it and make it work. I just feel so helpless and scared. This isn’t the type of mother I’m supposed to be, and I need help getting back on my feet.
If you can donate or if you have any online work available or know of any online jobs hiring please, please let me know. I already have applications in at Upwork, and I’ll be following the guides on this site. I appreciate you reading this. Thank you.
