I never thought I would be asking for any type of help or assistance, but here I am. I am a very prideful person and this is truly, a very tearful, humbling moment for me. That being said, I am very thankful for my previous circumstances. I have always been very fortunate in the fact that I have always been employed. I was with the same company for 22 years. They paid well and afforded me the opportunity, as primarily a single parent, to raise both of my biological children and a child that I adopted out of the foster care system. I have always lived my life in a way that I could be proud and tried to always be very independent. I am proud to say that I instilled that mentality into my children. Since losing my job and relocating back to my hometown, I am having a difficult time acquiring a job that can sustain my current financial obligations. I did manage to land a job in a neighboring city about 25 miles away, but after 3 weeks, my car broke down and I was no longer able to make the commute. It is still broken down, as I can not afford to repair it. I have applied at multiple places locally, so I could maybe take cabs to and from work, but have not had any success. Hopefully, I will hear from one of the companies that I have apps and resumes out for soon. I have a very good, professional work history, but my town is small and there are not alot of professional opportunities. I have now been out of work for 4 months, with the exception of the 3 weeks I spoke about previously. I am now 2 months behind on my home, car, electric, gas, credit cards, and personal loans. The first of February, they will be 3 months behind. As you can imagine I am facing foreclosure, repossession, utility disconnections, and legal actions. My once pristine credit is now a thing if the past. I have never been in this position before and had always hoped I would never be. I have always worked and made my own way. The thought of losing everything that I have worked for my entire life is very disheartening and almost more than I can take. I do have my health and the love of my family and friends. They would all help me if they were in a position to. I am rich in that regard and very thankful. Anything that anyone can spare would be greatly appreciated. I can assure you that when I have a job again, I will continue to pay it forward, as I have throughout my life.
