It says to start by introducing yourself. So, I'm Monica: I teach high schoolers by day and try to write at night.
I hate asking for help. But there comes a time when you need to swallow your pride and do so. And frankly, that time was probably weeks ago.
Despite steps I've taken and all the hard work I put in, I am in an awful fix. I am in desperate need of money to hire a lawyer to finish this divorce and help me declare bankruptcy. The end of my marriage has resulted in garnished wages, bills piled up, and endless stress. I owe my friends money. I owe my family money--some for my father's burial. I've had medical issues with my migraines all year, or I'd have gotten a second job. My car needs repairs and tires. Everything is piled up to the point where I see no other way out than to beg for help and to do it now.
If any of you reading this could please, please donate money, I would be beyond grateful. Any help is more than appreciated. Even five bucks would improve this situation.
I know the world doesn't owe me or any of us a favor. I simply ask you consider helping me out, and I thank-you for reading this. It pains me to write it.
