I’m 26 and I’ve had to pay for everything myself since I was 18.
I recently got injured and can’t work as much. I am in a training program currently to change careers and am doing physical therapy. Paying for the training program and paying for everything else (rent, utilities, food, car, etc), including my student loans while I’m not working as much is really hurting me and causing a lot of stress.
Student loans were on pause until October so it wasn’t included in my budget before. I need to put my money towards fixing my car and paying other bills while I finish physical therapy and the training program.
I’ve never thought about asking for help. I was never taught to. But who knows, maybe it’s a good thing to be willing to accept help, so here I am.
Whatever help you feel like giving would be highly appreciated.
