Need help getting back on my feet

$31,465 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 165 people in 32 months
This is a request for help. On November 13th, the job I had ended. I applied for unemployment, but my employer contested and i lost. Over the course of the last 6 weeks, friends and family have helped as much as they can, but i have $600 of bills coming due next week (plus the need for food and gas) that I have no money to pay. I start a new job tomorrow, but will not get paid for that until the end of the month and that will need to pay February's rent and bills. This is an ackward thing for me to do, but if any of you are able and willing to help, I would be grateful. Thank you.

Update for today's status.

My landlord has given me until Wednesday (9/19) to pay what I owe from August or i will have to move. At this time, i have nowhere to go. With the gofundme fees, the amount needed for that is $510. Then, by the end of the month, I'll need September's rent - with late fee and gofundme fee, that is $675. --------

One of July's bills is still past due with compounded late fees and August's are all past due now, as well. One of those is my internet service and it will be shut off in the next few days if not paid. September's bills are due. The total needed, with gofundme fees, is $320. --------

I have food for a few days. --------

My physical health still seems to be at a plateau - knees, back, and neck hurting -legs tired. The mental is improving overall, but anxiety and stress do come in waves - but right now, it is a bit elevated.... Doing deep breathing and reminding myself that I am not defined by my circumstance.... The doctor has still not gotten me scheduled. I am expecting a call today concerning my housing authority application... I still will not give up. No. --------

I am continuing to work on my next books, both non-fiction and fiction...slow - frustratingly so - but I'm still working...it is frustrating that when the brain slips into survival mode, the creative areas shut down. I am working to get out of survival mode...
I am also working on my music again, including writing, and will have the opportunity to play/sing more, now.
I am also researching possible grants for writers and musicians. We'll see were that leads. I am still hopeful for the opening of opportunities. :) --------

My first book is available on Amazon...here's the link..... --------

--------

When I think about the help and support you all have given, whether in finances or prayer or words of encouragement, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I will never be able to repay you all. My heartfelt prayer is that you receive back grace, provision, peace, understanding, life, joy... --------

Thank you, thank you, thank you....
