I do not have a heart warming or gut wrenching story. It is simple. I hope that maybe you will see me for who I am. I am good hearted, educated, and hard working. I had some set backs that really set me back. I have survived when I should not have multiple times. Though fighting for your life comes at a very large price. All of your money, all of your resources, all of your inner strength. Throughout my twenties things have slowly been turning into a raging hurricane of debt and misfortune. Bad boyfriends who ran me broke and abused me, bad health that put me in debt and destroyed my health, gifted a car that costs me more than I make a month to keep running. It is not the worst things that could happen in someone’s life, but wow, can they really put in you hole you might not ever recover from. I have no credit card debt, or school loans. I just want a fresh start so I can spend my life doing something good for the world.
My car is my biggest concern. It needs and EGR valve. With that valve I can smog it and register it. If it’s registered I can look for a better job or another job. The tires need replaced as well as they keep going flat everyday they are all leaking air. My car is my biggest source of income, without I cannot do much, especially in the middle of a pandemic. my car currently sits with a tarp over it as it has a leak and when it rains it rains inside the car as well. Minor repairs are needed to keep me safe on the road and the car in sustainable condition. For a 1996 Buick Regal she is going strong.
Health issues in the past caused me to rack up thousands in medical bills many I have paid off or had dismissed. Though there is still some that has been sitting on my credit. Fixing my credit helps me get a clean slate. For the last several years I feel like I can not get ahead of myself. I struggle to pay off past debts before they get any worse only to find my self acquiring new ones. Clearing this debt from me gives me a chance to be caught up and start fresh and not have past medical bills hanging over me for years to come hindering me from progressing.
My goals are to go back to school and study Biology. I love it so much. I want to help people in the field of alternative medicine. I have had many health issues in my life time and I have experienced first hand how horrifying being on handfuls of painful pills can be. Yes, I said painful, because many times medications come with more discomfort than relief. I want to design medication to the body so that it may be more compatible with us, causing less side effects and allergies with a much more pinpointed treatment.
Helping me is helping make sure there is one less person who gives up on their dreams to meet the strict demands of life.
