I figured this is worth a shot. I’m desperate at this point. I’m not one to reach out for help much. I’m one of the most independent people I know. I’m not one to speak or complain about my actual problems with the public but I’m at my wits end.
Lately it’s been one thing after another with me. Asmost of you know, I’m a single mom. I don’t get help from her father, or anyone really. I live on my own with my daughter. I pay all bills on my own; rent, childcare, food and water for the both of us, diapers and wipes, electric, etc. I get help with a little bit of child support. After my bills at the end of the month, I have nothing. I had my electric get shut off multiple times, had fees assessed for not paying certain things on times which just racks up the bills. I’m getting threatened to get evicted because of paying late rent sometimes. All of this lead to this past week of having to call out of work for my daughter being sick, while having no pto. Meaning i haven’t been getting paid for the days I’m calling off. I rely on every penny of my paycheck. I also have stupid department of education garnishing 15% of my paycheck every two weeks. The call offs lead to me being on a final warning at my job. Friday morning I walke out actually ready to go back to work to an issue with my ignition, as it’s turning out it’s an almost 400.00 job to fix, and having to call out for that due to having no way to work. With all of the above issues, I don’t have 400.00 to fix my car. I don’t have the money to uber my kid to the sitters and myself to work & vice versa. If I have one more call off or if I come in late to work, I am getting fired. Meaning I will end up getting evicted . I’ve been in worse situations when it was just me , but I have my soon to be one year old to think about more than just myself who is the more important one.
I’m not trying to think negative or the worst of things but it’s unfortunately reality and I’m desperate for help at this point. I feel like a sinking ship and all of this is really taking a toll on me. If anyone could help out, even in the littlest way....I would be more than happy and appreciative. If the repair is less than what I get on here, I plan on donating the money to people more in need than I am.
