Full-time Worker Could Lose Utilities After Spraining Ankle

My Story:

I am a single woman who just had her 30th birthday. I live alone in Chicago, my birth family is back in my hometown Philadelphia, while my adoptive family has made their home in South Carolina. I love music and singing. I love animals and I have one cat, Dariah. I work full time as a Certified Trainer at Raising Cane's.

When i say I live paycheck to paycheck, it is an extreme understatement. I get paid on a Fridays, and I am trying to borrow money by Monday. Now I was making it work, barely, but I was doing it. Then, on my way to a work meeting, I sprained my ankle bad. I end up having to take some days off reluctantly because at this point I cannot walk. However I know my financial situation and know I cannot afford these days off so I came in to work on crutches. Needless to say, I fell into a hole. I have medical expenses and bills falling behind more and more, slowly but surely. I need your help with my utility bill.

With your help, financially I can start back saving again instead of constantly playing catch up. I know my stress level will go down supremely. I know i'll definitely cry less. Please help me.
