I am a single mother of a 4 year old girl who works 3 jobs to provide for us. We live paycheck to paycheck even with 3 jobs.
My car has recently broke down and I do not have the money to repair it. I usually have emergency money put away for moments like this but I have been putting so much money into this car it’s left me with nothing.
We live in a rural area so public transportation isn’t easily accessible. Rideshare become very expensive fast… so I have been getting really bad anxiety everyday trying to figure out how I’m going to get my daughter to school (they have no buses at her school and we do not live close to it) and I have to stress about how I’m going to be getting to work everyday. I can’t lose any of my jobs because I’m the only one providing for us. I haven’t been able to work one of my jobs because I need my car to make deliveries.
I usually suck it up and try to deal with my problems but I need help. I feel like a horrible mother right now. The other day we had to walk a total of 5 miles to get some groceries. Which isn’t bad for me but my daughter was so tired by the time we made it home. I had try to explain to her the whole time that I can not afford to fix out car at the moment. It just made me feel like a horrible mom. I know in my heart I’m not but I feel like I’m at a dead end.
I really need financial help to either fix the car and pray that it doesn’t give me anymore problems or I just need to put money down for a more reliable car. Anything will help at this point. I would forever be grateful we are able to get the help we need. I also promise to pay it forward to other in need once we are able to get back on our feet.
Thank you for your time.
