here but my back has been a major hinderence. I had recently gotten to the point where I was able.to handle work again and I had just started working with a new musical at NoHo Arts Center and the designer said he would hire me for other projects as well. I have been getting by but recently while doing dishes I sliced my hand rather badly including right down the middle of a flexor tendon on my right hand pinkie. I am currently waiting to find out if i need further surgery but at this point the earliest I can return to work is estimated at 8 weeks. If surgery IS needed then it will be more like 12 weeks. Having been living paycheck to paycheck this puts me in a financial bind almost immediately. I have always been the kind of person where I want to handle situations on my own...too embarrassed to ask for help. This time I just dont know what to do and a friend reccomended this site.
I have figured out my bills for the next 8 weeks.
Rent at $500 a month - $1000
Bills like car insurance, cell, utilities and credit cards with the minimum payment total $600 a month - $1200.
Living expenses like food, TP, soap, etc aprox $125 wk - $1000.
This totals out to $3200.
I have already tried for unemplyment and or disability but since I am technically self employed (those damn 1099 jobs!) I am not eligible for either. I currently have $27 left in bank after paying rent today and about $150 available on a credit card. Thats all that I have. I could sell some of my tools to pay my bills but if I do I wont be able to earn a living when my hand gets better.
Please, If you can help me in any way I would greatly appreciate it. I dont know what I can do in return. The only thing I can think of is to offer copies of 2 independent movies I have recently finished shooting as an actor (Heres trailers
) as soon as they are available for release.
For the first time in my life i feel helpless and even had to have a friend type this for me. Those that know me know how hard this is for me to ask...Can you help me?
