I have been struggling to keep up with paying the bills. I feel like each month I am further and further behind. It’s something that keeps me awake at night, constant stress and anxiety knowing that I’m failing. I’ve looked up online tips on how to make money. I sell my used clothes online, I’ve joined sites to maybe get picked to participate in a study and get paid for it, where to find coupons to make grocery shopping slightly more affordable and I feel like a complete failure. I have 2 kids under the age of 12 and I do my best to give them everything they want and need because I want to make sure they are happy .
I really need help with catching up with bills I’m very behind on and struggling to keep my head above water. I’ve had a blow to my wages over the past year and a half and my bills are greater than what I make each month.
I pay for internet/tv, phone, electric which is outrageous even when it’s limited use, gas for heat has gone up, water bill, groceries are expensive and not buying fancy things either, dog food, a car payment which if I had better credit I could have a better rate but I’m in tears thinking about how horrible my credit is and how much I owe on my loan it’s double what it should be because of my horrible credit that I’m working on the best I can and have made some improvements on but it’s going to take a few years to even get back up to where I could afford to get a new lower rate on my car, car insurance, gas, clothes for kids and they grow out of things fast it seems like, health insurance, debts I’m still paying off and have a high interest rate on, rent.
I’ve sold items of mine that I really did not want to sell but felt I had no choice because I have to keep the lights on.
The amount requested is for utility bills I am very behind on – $3500 to be exact just for utilities- a car payment I am behind on and if possible to help me afford my dog’s vet bill.
My dog is my best friend as lame as that sounds and probably makes me sound even more pathetic and more of a loser than I already am but he keeps me feeling safe and helps to calm my nerves and he is the best kind of friend out there. If I owned something nice I’d trade that all for him.
I’m not asking for money to go to a mall with and blow or gamble away with believe it or not, I’m just desperately trying to figure out how I’m going to afford my bills and not have my electricity shut off in 2 weeks or my gas shut off. I can’t even afford at the moment a payment plan with the electric bill due to my balance I owe and then future bills and that’s close to no kidding $500 a month for part past due and then for current due. This is just a slice of my anxiety pie that I think about non stop.
I’m optimistic that my luck is going to turn around and things are going to get better but I am in desperate need of help and to just catch a break.
If you decide to help out a total stranger I want to say right now thank you so much from the bottom of my heart I appreciate your kindness more than words can ever describe.
