I am embarrassed that I have had to learn the hard way . I went through a divorce back in 2013. I am a mother of three great kids. I was a homemaker for 17 years (the duration of my marriage) I thought we would be together forever , he was the love of my life . The dissolution of my marriage still haunts me today . Although , I am grateful I was able to raise my boys and guide them during those years I wish I had been given the opportunity to learn how to make it financially. My ex husband handled finances and I never worried. Well that is until the unthinkable happened. I have since beat cancer, worked my way from the bottom of one of the biggest retail stores to management but still have always to go to start earning enough money to afford my own home and to get me out of debt first. I , in the past never learned the lesson of money and it has cost me. I am grateful for the lesson but at the same time I am scared because I made financial mistakes and I am so afraid I will not be able to recover. I do not want to file bankruptcy I had no choice but to do that right after the divorce because I could not afford to pay any of the debts divided and left for me to pay after the end of my marriage. It was t until afterwards I started to rebuild my credit and ruin my credit all at the same time. I have learned my lesson. I do make good money but every spare dime is going to pay the bills and creditors. I have rheumatoid arthritis and my body is breaking down. I am so scared I will never get past the burden of debt and am asking for help. I need to find employment that is more favorable to my body. Some days I can barely walk and I am no longer able to close my hands to make a fist. I have asked god to help me in somehow fix the mess I got myself into. Now I have faith in him but I also am able to be humble and ask for help from others, I owe my truck payments but I am only asking to get rid of the 30,000 in credit card debt.. if anyone can afford to help me it would be life changing for me.
My sincere thanks ,
