I am a single mother of 3. My youngest, age 3 began having multiple “silent seizures”, the cause was unknown, but doctors told us that low white blood cell count and other symptoms pointed to leukemia. Fortunately, she is my only child who is not school aged. Having only a highschool, diploma and student loans from a failed stint at ITT Tech , I am underemployed ad was not in a position that allowed me the benefit of tending to my sick child and keeping my job.
They were not able to determine the source of my daughter’s illness, but her symptoms seem to have stopped. For that I am grateful. I was forced to take out several payday loans, to have gas money, utilities and rent payments however and with the payments and interest, I cannot catch up. My car is on its last legs, but I pray it hangs on until I can do better. There is no reliable public transportation where I live. I feel like I am drowning. Rent and utilities are behind, because I have to work from home with my daughter, and I don’t have a degree, pay is little. I am a hard worker, but I cannot catch up. I spend all my time working just to not have enough. Also no time to read to kids, play outside with them, not even do chores. I feel like we could lose everything any day.
If I could pay off my high interest cards and payday loans, I could maybe get a loan to repair my car or buy another and deliver food for Uber, Grubhub and Door Dash. This is something I can do with my daughter and still be able to take the others to and from school because I’d dictate my own schedule. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to give, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
