Hi there! I’ve never actually used any sort of site such as this, so this is a new experience for me. As a quick sort of introduction, I’m a (young, i hope!) mother to a 17 month old son and live in beautiful Canada. I recently was expecting to be receiving money as back pay from the month of May for child tax. I found out that I accidentally erred in filing my taxes for this year, so they kept my payment for the month of May as coverage for extra payments I had received previously.
As a result of not receiving that money in May (of which is around 500) and not getting back pay that I was expecting to receive, I’ve found myself in a tight situation money wise. I feel like I’m just trying to swim out of this sudden flood of money problems.
I paid my rent and bills. But now the bills are coming back up to be due and I have almost no food. I just need a little bit of help to tide me over until Thursday, which is when I will have money.
I’m not asking for much but I understand asking for anything from the kindness of strangers is still too much. I would put any money straight to the grocery store and, if possible, any remaining toward my utility bill. I definitely know that the option for Food Banks is available but I would need to register and wait for the pickup day, which I’m not sure how many days that would take.
Any amount would help, even if it is just ten dollars. Or one dollar. I apologize for finding myself asking for help. I feel low right now and the stress of finances are weighing on my mind. I am on assistance for mental health and thus I depend on one check to get me by each month. But, due to keeping up with the loss of not receiving Mays child tax payment, and not realizing I do not receive GST anymore (which I was expecting a payment on the 5th – did not happen) I find myself already in the negative of my bank account.
I’m very sorry for rambling on here. I’m not sure if anyone will even read this, but if you do, even if you can’t help me with money, thank you for still taking the time to read about my life. Thank you
