I Need Help

I didn’t want it to come to this as I hate asking for money.  As most know this past year has been quite a struggle.  It began with the loss of my long time employment of 28 years. I was unemployed until June of this year.  During this time, I was faced with a divorce which left me with little income. I was forced to use my 401K. 

I found other employment but on Sept 10 was let go from that job as well because they lost one of their big clients and could no longer afford to keep me.  I did not work there long enough to qualify for unemployment.

So, I have been without income since that time.  I would not be here with this campaign if it weren’t for the most recent event of my power being turned off.  I applied for SER through DHHS but was denied. I called some agencies provided by Consumers Energy such as Salvation Army but was also denied with them due to being denied by DHHS.  

Needless to say, I’m not sure where to turn. I will keep track of any donations I may get so I can pay back eventually.  

Any money I get will go towards my power bill, and car payment and gas bill. I’m behind on everything.  

Thanks and keep up those prayers and well wishes.

God bless.

Good afternoon! I just wanted to take a minute and give a little update. It still hurts that I have come to the point of asking for money. I know this is a tough time of year for everyone. I want to thank those that have donated to me here. You have no idea how much it means to me. I was able to get my power turned back on. Of course, all the food in my my refrigerator and freezer are wasted. And I came to find my internet service was interrupted. If it's not one thing, it's another. Consumers Energy has provided me with a name of an organization to call to see if I qualify for a Care Program. My account is on hold for 9 days to give me time to do this. If I don't qualify, then I'll be placed on a payment plan. The woman on the phone was very nice to me. I was grateful.

On the advice of my professor and Academic Advisor, as well as therapist and psych care team, I'm taking a break from school so that I can focus on finding work and these other issues. The holidays are coming, and it's an emotional struggle to be honest. I'll be posting my large refrigerator for sale as soon as I clean it out. And I'm going to be posting other stuff as well.

God bless you and thank you! Continue to pray or send positive thoughts. Please share.
