Falling Behind

As we all know, 2020 has been a difficult year for almost everyone. My boyfriend and I have been able to stay caught up on our bills for most of the year, but these last couple of months has been especially hard. I had to change jobs back in August, but ended up in a job that makes less money than I made at the previous one, but it at least came with medical benefits. That being said, I'm still waiting for those medical benefits to kick in. I had to have a medical procedure done in early October which put me out of work for about a week and a half. I'm still trying to pay that bill off and we just found out that we are about 4 weeks pregnant. On top of that, my boyfriend isn't working at the moment because his employer said he didn't need him right now because their work has slowed down as we enter into the winter season.

I also got signed up for a year long certification course back in August because we had steady income coming from both of our jobs, but now that tuition is having to be paid on my credit card. We are swimming in so much debt at this point, that I don't know where to even place my focus to get everything paid off. I'm trying to stay as calm as possible for the baby growing inside of me, but it's hard when you feel stuck in a hole. We also are currently trying to get money back from Expedia for a trip that we had to cancel due to Covid, but the way things are going, it doesn't seem like we will be getting any of our money back. We would appreciate any help that we can get at this point just so we don't end up homeless!

All of the money would go to credit card debt, past medical bills (and any that come up until my insurance kicks in), food for us and our cat, fuel for the cars, and anything that our baby might need in the next couple months. My  boyfriend is currently looking for another job and we have applied for Food Stamps, but these things take time. I know that there are probably thousands of stories on here similar, or worse, than ours, but if you can spare even a $1 to help us, we would be so so grateful!!
