I have many thoughts running through my mind as I am thinking of what to type. No matter how hard I try I just keep coming up short and sinking deeper and deeper. I lay awake every night thinking about how I am going to keep a roof over my kids head and food on the table. I have reached out for help to many different places and every time turned down or all their resources have already been used for the year. I just feel hopeless but I know I can’t give up.
I have not been able to work for a few years now due to problems I have with my health. So my husband works to support us all. His yearly salary is around $45,000. With the cost of living constantly on the surprise it has made it basically impossible to cover all the cost of our family. It just leaves us struggling everyday. I sometimes have asked my mom for help but it just makes me feel even worse about myself. I know you have likely heard it before several times but covid has really ruined us.
Before covid my husband was able to pick up overtime which helped us to keep on top of everything. When that got cut is when we started getting behind on rent and other expenses. It just seems to be one thing after another.
A couple weeks ago our middle son was hit by a SUV while crossing at the cross walk going to school. He is going to need physiotherapy and surgery on his right leg. I just praise God that it was not any worse.
I am just asking with an open heart for help from anyone that maybe can assist us in catching up with our bills and to avoid eviction. I know its a lot but all I can do is leave it in God’s hands and say that I would be forever grateful and hope to be able to pay it forward one day.
