I help take care of an elderly mother, both physically and financially, in addition to helping support another elderly family friend.
I’m a capable person and a good writer; I’m revising the first draft of a book I’ve written and it will be ready in a couple of months.
I am unable to work a regular job for a couple of reasons: I have to be available to be with my mother, and I am no longer physically able to do work on my feet.
I have been very fortunate in my life. Two years ago I was able to donate money to charities, and to several people who had astronomical medical bills. I donated to friends and strangers.
I’m happy I could do that. A more frugal person would have saved the money and most probably not be in the situation in which I find myself. But I have never felt comfortable not helping if I could help.
I have about $4 to my name right now. I would like to not be under the enormous stress I feel. If I could get through the next couple of months I know I can be earning through my writing. I’m hoping there is someone who is willing to help me, as I was willing to help others. I’ve pawned everything of value that I own and am selling some clothes I have to pay some bills.
If I had $5000 I know I could continue to support the people I’m supporting and pay my bills until this book gets an advance.
Oddly, I don’t feel ashamed asking for help. I know there have to be people out there like me, who are happy to give when they can, and know that they are easing the crushing tsunami of financial worries for someone.
Rest assured-I will pay this forward.
I appreciate you taking the time to visit this site, and whether you help me or someone else, you’re doing a wonderful thing. Thank you. paypal.me/contrarycherry
