So, it’s amazing how much one set back can affect so many things in one person’s life. I’m currently back on my feet and working two jobs, but hit a health issue recently which set me back a few months. I have a long term condition I was just diagnosed with one year ago that requires lifelong management, and side effects from the treatment knocked me on my feet recently. Dizziness, fatigue, anemia, rapid heart rate, and I was unable to really drive or do anything at all, which meant I couldn’t work. I also didn’t have the ability to get disability, because disability is for long term issues and this would clear up with time. But, no money meant danger of going broke. I’m also trying to work on $3000 back rent and food, bills, etc (all my money is earmarked for the next three months on bills), but with my new jobs I think I can get those things under control.
At the same time, my car is completely in danger of falling apart if I can’t get the fuel pump fixed. Right now, it won’t go over 50mph and it dies often. The problem is, it’s an expensive fix, one that I had no idea was coming and one I can’t do anything about for months. It really impedes a lot of things and progress if I can’t drive my car. The total cost I was quoted is $1200. Anything that can help me get my car going is going to help get me back on track in a lot of ways. I can’t imagine what I will do if I can’t drive to work anymore, as the bus system here is not feasible where I live. Thank you for your consideration, and I promise to pay it forward.
I attached the transcript from the latest voicemail, where I attempted to use Kia’s “good will” services to get the fuel pump fixed, but it was denied.
