I’m a 32 yr old Marine Veteren who recently quit my job of 10 years. Which was basically my only civilian job. I was the single Marine program president that organized all kinds of volunteer work and events for military oversees. I have a Presidential Volunteer Service Award and have helped out so many people all throughout my life and even today as I still give people who need a ride transportation but didn’t know if I’d even have the gas to make it home. I would probably be a millionaire if they all decided to pay me back today. I was renting out my mothers house for the past 10 yrs but she passed away a few years ago leaving me and my siblings to split it. I don’t have the money to buy my own home yet and my brother and sister have been nice about it but want me out so we can sell the house already before the market drops even more. Since Covid happened the factory I worked at was constantly laying us off every other week just about or two days on then 3 off. Then they did away with my entire shift. Management didn’t care anymore and just where I was working wasn’t worth it anymore so quit in October after I found a new job as a contractor. But a few days later the employer just stopped answering. It went from him calling me constantly to me finally being serious about working for him and quitting my job to absolutely nothing not even a curtesy email. I do a little work at Kirklands on days they need help and every Thursday for the past couple years because they were short handed during COvid and unloading 700+ boxes of furniture type stuff all by hand from a truck all alone wasn’t something I could let someone do and I always felt like they needed me to help unload it since then so I do. Sorry I’ve gotten a little off track. I’m going to move in with my sister so we can sell the house and I’ll have a down payment for one of my own soon after. I’m having a hard time getting a job that pays more then half of what I was making. Since I’ll be moving soon nobody really wants to hire me for just a month. I’ve sold just about everything I own to pay the bills so far but have gotten far behind on a lot. I’ve lost my entire storage unit full of all my stuff I put in there to store until I got a new home. Worried my car will be taken away any day now. I really would like to utilize this time I’m still off to finish painting the house and fixing it up to sell. My sister has bought some and comes over when she can but she’s a manager, wife and mother that has so much other things she has to do always. I know she has to hate it when she comes over and sees I have nothing else done and she’s gonna really hate when my utilities are shut off. I’m sure she would do all she could to help but she’s struggling to pay her own bills. If I just had a couple thousand dollars I could get mine caught up and the repairs done at the house to sell it and something in my fridge to eat or drink. I will pay whoever back with interest. I’ve even broke down and asked a couple of the people I’ve helped out in the past by giving a few thousands to but they’re still struggling themselves. I’m so depressed lately and feel like I have nowhere to turn and making things harder just being here. I’m a very hard worker and regret quitting now, I just couldn’t handle being expected to do so much and unappreciated anymore. I did apply for I guess food stamps and whatever assistance the government can give me yesterday, it’s still “in progress” Im letting my cat and dog down too. They’re stuck eating just dry food and almost out of it. I usually give them both some wet food everyday and my cat won’t stop telling me about it. I’m grateful for anything. I’ve never been one to ask others for anything really except my mom when I really needed something and even then I didn’t have to ask but she’s no longer here, yet still will be helping me soon years after passing away. I’m not sure about this site but it was worth a shot. Thanks to whoever cares enough to read these. I greatly appreciate anything at all.
