(I’m placing this at the top just as an FYI. This is my debt amount. Anything you are wanting/able to provide is appreciated. Story below)

I’ve typed this up twice now and nothing I write seems well enough.
My problems started back in 2015. I got myself into some serious money problems that I couldn’t seem to dig myself out of. This resulted in some serious mental health issues that ended up in a suicide attempt and a brief stay at a mental facility. I am not looking for sympathy in regards to this, I would just like to provide the facts surrounding my situation. I then spent the next 3 years digging myself (as best I could) out of the hole I created. I’m still not out of it and sometimes the hole seems bigger than it was yesterday.
In December of 2018 my daughter was born. When I say she changed everything, I whole heartedly mean it. I worked hard to move up at work and drill away at my debts. I pay what I can when I can. However, it never seems to be enough. Every week I worry about collections, wage garnishment, and not being able to provide for my daughter. No matter how much dirt I throw in the hole, it seems like I’ll never get to the top.
I am not looking to live extravagantly, just comfortably. My goal is to be able to provide basic housing, food, and love to my daughter. I fully understand that these are my debts to pay. I also understand that there are people with circumstances that are out of their control in need of help as well. I’m just hoping that someone that has a heart meant for me decides that I am worth helping. If that doesn’t happen, then there is no harm. A shot in the dark is worth more than not taking one.
I do currently hold a full time job (plus 2 part time jobs), that, if I didn’t have this debt would be perfect for taking care of my family. My goal once I am debt free is to utilize sites like this one to locate people in situations like mine and help them as well. I would like nothing more than to change someone else’s life that has been through what I have also been through. My promise is to pay it forward in anyway I can. Right now I can’t even afford to pay for another person’s morning coffee. Whether I receive help or not, I will be giving once I am debt free. If I can stop someone from feeling like I do right now, I will be fulfilled.
Once again, if you are wanting to help but cannot provide the full amount I listed, that is okay. Anything you’re wishing to provide will be appreciated in a manner that I cannot articulate.
$16,678.78 is my current debt amount. I am willing to provide proof of this. I am also willing to prove that what you give will be used for these debts. I have not included my student loans, as I figure those will never be going away.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story. Even if all you do is read it. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to ask without judgment. Not asking is what got me into this mess.
