desparate measures

hello and welcome. i find myself here in desparate times to try and keep myself afloat. i hate asking for help but am recently left with few choices. i started a local small business the beginning of last year. i put in the time to grow it from nothing to a $500 a week income. my goal was to grow it on its own merits and work within the resources it generates. no business loans to pay back no interest fees etc. in my first year i lost $1300 on unpaid fares but still ended up making a profit at the end. now half way through my second year my vehicle breaks down three times in three weeks costing me about $1200 in income. the down time has cost me some solid regular accts and now its like im starting over again. except with barrowed vehicles that i cant always have access to. my main vehicle is still down. im still working part time but not making enough to stay afloat for long. i have even taken and lost a second job. In the mean time im about to lose my house and everything in it because the house payments and lot fees keep coming even though the money isnt. my utilities are starting to get cut. i have worked hard for the things i have and have no place to turn to for help. i cant afford to pack up and move except to the streets. i have been pushed to swallow my pride and do this. this is not a handout its a request for a hand up through these really tough times. i suffer ptsd depression and diabetes with chronic pain and fatigue but am still trying to stand on my own and hang in there until i get a break. every little bit helps. thanks for everything if i dont get another chance. Every little makes a difference. My current challenges are $470 for house payment due by the 30th. $200 for electricity by the 1st. $74 for cell phone due by the 3rd. And $550 for lot fee due by the 5th. I currently have $60 and am working more which is a good thing. Almost half way to the goal. But still have a ways to go before a full recovery. Thank you so much for your time and support.
