This has been my worst financial year ever and I need help!!
I’ve had a knee injury for two and a half years, which has now left me crippled to the point of having to quit my house-cleaning jobs for good. My source of “sit down” work is scarce nowadays and not paying what it used to.
The new job I was supposed to start fell through last minute and I couldn’t of started due to my injury anyways.
I need surgery ASAP and have an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon on January 10th, 2018.
On the other hand, and some of you may know...Edgar (Elia’s father) is in bad shape. It is drug related. Very sad indeed. She hasn’t seen him since June and I haven’t seen a penny of the $400/month of child support in three months. And most likely won’t be getting that help any longer. This has had a huge impact on my finances on top of my disability and I’m just not making it!!! And I don’t get child support from Mario (Jana’s father) because he has the girls (both!) half the time.
It’s not easy for me to ask for money, but I have to if I want to keep my home and my car and I don’t see how I will manage given the circumstances. Specially with a surgery and not being able to work for a while.
My goal is to be able to raise enough money for three months of rent and car payments. I’m hoping to be on my feet and working again full time by March!!!
I have foodstamps that help with groceries and I’m in the process of applying for disability which won’t be a lot because I don’t make nor claim much in my taxes. Yet, I hope it’ll be enough for utilities and our cel phones.
I’m humbly asking for whatever you can give...anything and everything helps!!!!
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart...
