Hello all. At a time when I know most everyone is dealing with so much, I appreciate all who takes the time to read about my situation.
I am a single mother of 5, (ages 19, 17, 15, 12 1/2, 11) still recovering from an abusive relationship with my childrens’ father, doing my best to stay afloat in life. I was struggling with rent and bills, facing an eviction before Covid.. with courts preparing to open back up, even though it will take time for the process to be complete, I still face having to move and find a place to stay.
The pandemic has made this particularly hard, with lots of jobs closing; I’ve been doing UberEats, GrubHub, DoorDash, so I was not able to get unemployment and have just been trying to deliver as much as I can to make money; yet it’s hard to stack and save money to move, because we still have to live day to day; I try to keep up on the bills so as not to let them get too high, I pay for food when my food stamps run out, and basically every other cost of taking care of 5 kids and myself.
It’s becoming increasingly physically and mentally taxing doing this alone.
(I am using edited pictures so as to avoid detection and contact from abusive individuals) Update - really needing as much help as I can get.. Uber has lowered delivery pay rates, and I’ve had unexpected car expenses added to my already struggling financial situation. I appreciate the help I’ve gotten thus far and will continue to work as much as I can to maintain our day to day lives.
