I am a veteran who served in Afghanistan and Iraq after 9/11. I currently work full time and live with my daughter, my fiance and my two stepchildren, whom I consider to be mine, regardless of blood relation. I have a wonderful family and am beyond blessed. Unfortunately, the past couple years have been really tough and have progressively came to a point to where I don’t know what to do anymore about my situation. I have come through an ugly lengthy, and very expensive custody battle just to be able to see my daughter since my ex wife moved out of state with her and wouldn’t allow me to see her at all. My fiance had skin cancer and went through some time out of work for that around the same time. We made it through with some hefty bills but were okay. Such is life. As it stands now, my employment changed my shift at work and I have to go back to court to get a modified custody arrangement. I can’t afford the lawyer fees right now but it is my top priority. On May 7, an 86 year old man ran a stop sign and I t-boned him on my motorcycle just down the street from my house. My step daughter was on the back and luckily nobody was seriously injured. However, I had a mild concussion and many injuries that did prevent me from working for a couple weeks after. It has cost us a lot so far that we just don’t have. My motorcycle is totaled and although it was not my fault, the insurance takes its time. Right after this happened, my fiance’s car just wouldn’t start. We paid to have it towed and the bill is 800 just to get it to start and then they will give us an estimate on how much the other issues with it are going to cost. She was out of work for two days when this happened but is now getting a ride from her mother until we can figure out how to get the money to get her car running again. My car is on its last leg but that’s been ongoing so we are crossing our fingers for now. We are so far behind at this point that my electric bill is over a thousand dollars behind and I have to pay 400 by the end of this month to avoid shut off. To top it all off, I am owing (for the first time ever) close to 4,000 in taxes this year. We are lost and drowning. Please…. any help at all would be so very much appreciated.
