I'm currently out of work, and the job hunt has been an uphill battle from day one. I was denied unemployment benefits, and an appeal was also denied. What money I had has run out, and I am left with literally nothing.
Job prospects that seem promising end up falling through due to an item on my background check (misdemeanor). I made a very poor decision a while back, and I have since corrected this, and the situation is now closed. Despite that, it comes back to haunt me on background checks, and will continue to do so until it can be expunged in 2 years. Those of you who know me, know that I am a good person, but none of us is perfect. I made a bad decision, corrected it, and am unfortunately still paying the price.
My primary concerns right now are keeping my car and keeping my phone service on. Thanks to some very generous people, my bank account is back in the positive for now. I owe 2 bi-monthly car payments, totalling $366.22. I also need to get prescription meds filled that I haven't had in weeks. My living situation has improved, so that isn't a primary concern right now.
Anything, ANYTHING helps. I put in job applications daily, and hearing back from them takes time. During that waiting time, the bills continue to fall behind.
Your generosity and kindness, here at the holiday season, means more than I can say. Thank you, much love, and God bless.
