Hello my name is Linzy Sheeder. First I will begin by telling a little about myself. I am a 22 year old college student here in Petersburg, Virginia. I have been out of my parents house and living with my amazing fiancé since the age of 18. I am working towards my degree in business administration. I have been paying for school tuition, books, and supplies all out of pocket. My fiancé and I used to run paper routes in the tristate area just to make ends meet and pay for my school. Unfortunately, we are now both out of work due to our company doing lay offs. Newspapers just don’t sell as they used to. Now going more into our personal life, we had been told that we are unable to ever conceive a child of our own. However, about two months ago we were blessed with the news that we were pregnant! We we’re unbelievably excited! At about 6 weeks along we couldn’t contain our excitement and we told the news to all of our family and friends! Everyone we knew cried tears of joy at the news! At about 10 weeks our doctor told us that there was no longer a heart beat and he was certain we were going to have a miscarriage. We were heartbroken. It didn’t feel real to hear this news. We had no idea how to tell our family. On top of this we then found out about the lay offs at our job. We’ve both slipped into our own versions of depression trying to cope with everything going on. Bills are beginning to pile up and tuition for spring semester is approaching slowly. We have no idea how we’re going to make ends meet as we’re looking for new employment. We currently have an apartment where we are $471 behind on November rent and December rent is $1,100 a month, electricity $150 a month, a car note of $320 a month, car insurance at $175 a month, phones at $200 a month, food and gas around $300 a month. My spring semester tuition will be upwards of $2,083 and books/supplies will be $500. We also have a substantial amount of tax debt from the two years we’ve been running papers on 1099 pay. Lastly, we are drowning in credit card debt from years ago that we can’t seem to get out from under. Not only have we fallen on hard times financially, but also emotionally and mentally. Our relationship and mental health have also been at stake. I know there is little that people can do to help us with dealing with our loss. However, anything that anyone could do to help us ease our financial burden would be greatly appreciated. My goal for joining this site is that I’m at least able to catch up November and pay our rent for the month of December. Getting to pay my tuition and remain in school this semester would simply be a blessing. Thank you to all!
