Can’t get anywhere

Hi everyone and anyone reading this my name is Ethan I’m 17 years old and I just recently got my own place from one of my amazing friends parents who honestly I think just felt bad for us not havin a place to stay since our dad left, but I am grateful for them letting me only pay 600 a month so I have been working very hard to keep up with rent, gas, and keeping me and my sister fed. I’ve come to a bit of an impasse at the moment though I have a Toyota forunner that I use to get me and my sister to and from work and for the past week I’ve had issues with some type of sound in my front left wheel and at first I thought it was going to be something as simple as getting my brake pads changed but the sound got worse and worse and scarier and scarier everyday up until 3 days ago when it started to affect my steering it would feel unsafe driving and I would have to keep a death grip on my steering wheel just to make sure It doesn’t start moving off into the left lane and I finally decided yesterday that it wasn’t worth putting my life in risk over something that could be a lot more dangerous than just havin messed up brake pads and it was already determined in my mind that it was going to be something else probably more expensive, so I called a mobile mechanic in the area with the best reviews online and I talked on the phone with him for a while and he seemed to be trustworthy and I could tell he knew what he was talking about so I let him come over and look at it and tell me what was going on, so long story short my wheel bearing was to the point of where it was about to fall apart and he said if I would’ve drove it out again I would’ve done a shit ton more damage than having to just replace The bearing, so I talked to him for a while and we talked about the price of everything plus the service cost include tax and he said it was around 450 to 500 to replace one wheel bearing and to change my front brake pads. So here I am on GoFundMe which I’d never thought I’d see myself on, but I guess we all get to a point where you’ll try whatever it is to get what you need done and I’m at that point, I have 220 from my paycheck I got yesterday and my sister got hers too from Taco Bell so all together we have 360 dollars so honestly any money I get from anybody looking to help is going somewhere good. If you read this far thank you for taking the time out of your day to see where I’m at right now,as much as I don’t like asking others for anything savanna gave me the idea to try this because as of right now I’m relying on different friends to give me and sav rides to work which I also hate having to do when I have my own car, but you gotta do what you gotta do and if this doesn’t help it’ll be okay I’ll only have to get thru this for another week until I get another paycheck and I have enough but any money would help get me to 500 so I can get us both to work everyday .. anyways have a good day and thank you
