Thanks for your generosity no matter whom you choose to help!
No one ever thinks they will be on the receiving end. I was the one always helping others. I had six biological children, adopted a six yo girl, raised my cousins 12yo daughter after she passed and had a foster daughter whom Im still close to.
I gave up my career for 15years while raising and homeschooling the children. After a nearly 35 year marriage I went through an horrific divorce. I lost $40,000.00 in attorneys fees but I did get full custody of my two minor children. I was left with $18,000 in CC debt as a result of my ex being out of work for over a year and then him being under employed for years.
I am now unable to work in my profession, hair stylist, due to arthritis, carpal tunnel and herniated disc and arthritis in my back. I am currently seeking treatment for my back, not sure what that will entail. there is nothing I can do about my hands that will heal them.
I have a small pension and just started collecting my small SS payments. I wish I could ask my children for financial help but they are either young or raising their own children on one income. I moved to Texas a year and a half ago for the lower cost of living but it is still a struggle.
I have been renting a room from a friend but she wants her house back as she is not used to living with someone. I would love to get my own apartment but my income is not adequate. If I had the money I could purchase an RV or mobile home. I do not need much and I live very simply.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
