Trying to Rebuild & Get My Life on Track

Hello everyone,

I recently lost my job as a teacher due to the stress of both teaching my face-to-face students and trying to teach and fulfill all new mandates required for each of my virtual students. I am single and live alone. Prior to the 20-21 school year beginning, I had already fallen behind on bills. A week before returning to work, my vehicle completely gave out. I had a 50 mile round-trip commute each day, so I had to seek out a auto loan for a used vehicle to be able to make it to work. Right from the start it became apparent the new job demands were more than I could handle. Being an English teacher, the grading load alone was bad enough before adding all the new todos brought on by the addition of virtual learning. I was literally working round-the-clock from the momebt I awoke until the moment I went to bed, even talking to students via Google Meet while driving to and from work. Weekends were packed full of landry and other household demands. Even after working this hard, it wasnt enough. I would arrive each morning to find an email laying out what all still needed to be done, or a request to meet with my principal during my precious plan time to scold me and offer no suggestions or avenues of help. By the week of September 21, I was at my wits' end. I was advised by my school couselor and my regular therapist to take the rest of the week off or risk having a complete mental breakdown. I spoke with an acquitance of mine who offered assistance if he could move in. Before my time off was over, I came down with Covid. While sick, my new roommate drained my bank account and caused trouble that attracted police attention. Since the hiuse and property are in my name, I ended up getting charges that were a direct result of his actions for items and acitivity I was unaware of due to being sick. Without any explanation from me, my school fired me over the pending charges due to me trusting someone who offered help. At this point I have no job, I am not able to register my vehicle, my electricity has been shut off, my water shut off, and I have lost my health insurance making it impossible to get my antidepressant presciption during the most depressing time of my life.
If I could get my car registered, I would be able to get a job delivering for Uber Ears and similar delivery services.

The requested donation is the amount I need to do so.

I have been trying to earn the money by listing anything of any value online for sale, but havent had hardly any interest.

Each day I grow more hopeless. But for today, I am clinging to my hope that there are still kind, and charitable souls on society. Any and all help will be appreciated more than words could ever express.

I have promised God if I make it through this, I will dedicate myself to vokunteering to help the homeless and less fortunate, as I have such a better understanding of the obatacles they face.

Thanks for your time
