So, I’m not the one to ask or beg for help. In my family I’m the responsible one. I’m the one who saves their money. I’m the one who is just like my dad. Writing this post makes me sad and I feel like a failure. I hate that I’m in this situation and I’m working hard to get out of it. However, I’m in a situation where I’m not sure how I’m going to pay my bills. I have my electricity bill that is past due, my rent is coming up and I have no idea how that will be paid. I know I put myself in this situation and I have to get myself out of this situation, however I’m pleading for help. I’m a hard worker and I strive to be the best person I can be, but I can’t do this all on my own. I’m realizing if I can’t get help, what else can I do? Just FYI I have gotten help from government assistance programs and the process was horrible. I had to be getting kicked out of my place to get help. I told myself I never want to go through that again and look I’m back in that situation.
I’m a single mother of one child and one dog. I do work and have a side hustle job. I’m a substitute teacher and deliver food. Last week I was working my side hustle with my son and ended up taking a bad fall and hurting myself. I damaged my left knee by losing my footing and fell. I have no health insurance, so I have not seen a doctor and am just hoping for the best. I’m able to walk but I can’t bend my knee and I have a limp when I walk. I’m trying to not stress and just keep my head up, but bills are piling up.
I’m also working towards completing my teaching certification, so I’ll never be in this situation again. I have already scheduled my exams, however I’m so stressed that it takes a lot to study for my exams. I’m wondering how am I going to pay this bill or how am I going to get groceries. I’m praying and hoping that someone sees this post. I would be appreciative of anything. I know I’m not the only one that is in need and I truly hope that everyone gets the help they need.
Thank you for reading my story and helping.
