My name is Nic. I am at one of the lowest points in my life. It was really hard for me to even make a post on this website, because I have always been able to handle my own weight. However, life has hit me with a hardship that has been difficult to bounce back from. At the beginning of this year, I was going to school, working & taking care of my ill mother. I lost my job 5 months ago due to it closing. I have run out of funding to complete my Bachelor’s Degree, but I am still taking care of my mom. I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to give up, but I’m not a quitter so I am going to stand firm and finish this race. I am grateful for whatever is giving to me at this time. As of today my student loan is $54,379.47 & my mother has doctor appointments twice a week that I drive her too. She is undergoing skin graphs on the bottom of her feet. The doctors want to see if that will help with her feet to heal which is very deep. I didn’t want to post the pictures before the surgery because they are too graphic. She has not walked in months. She has gained weight since she hasn’t been able to walk on her feet & it is a struggle. I really want to go back to work but I don’t trust anyone to take care of my mom like I will. I am taking care of her with her social security income and I am budgeting that to make it month by month. Most days I don’t eat to make sure she has food since she is diabetic. This is my plea for financial help. I am grateful for whatever is given. Thank you so much! Nic.
