I Finally Got Back to Work After COVID, but I Lost My Car for Months & Need Help with Rent Please!
I'm a single woman, and I live alone now after I lost my son 2 years ago. I moved into my apartment shortly after he passed, and honestly, it's been really difficult to cope with his death; it's something that will always weigh heavily on me. I've been doing my best to live my life to the fullest extent and to take care of myself because it's what he would have wanted. However, after being laid-off from my job due to Covid-19, it's been hard to get by.
Early on, I was able to manage my bills for the most part thanks to the unemployment benefits I was receiving, but when those benefits expired, it got really difficult to get by. I was desperately seeking work and never finding it. Finally, I was able to secure a job that was 30 minutes from my home in a different state, but three days after starting my new job, I hit a deer on my way to work and totaled my car. As a result, I was out of work for two months. Now up until that point, I had been able to keep up with my rent; however, that was the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak, and I fell behind by two months on my rent. I'm back to work now, but I still don't have any way to recover from the days that I missed as a result of losing my car. So, I'm humbly seeking help with two months of my rent in order to get completely caught up before I'm evicted.
I can feel the walls starting to cave in now, and I'm in a really desperate situation financially. Honestly, this help would be the difference between life and death for me and getting it would ensure that I can keep everything I've worked so hard to regain over these past few months. It hasn't been easy for me for a long time, but this type of generosity would really be huge for my mentality going forward. Just to know that there are people out there who care about you and your situation is something truly beautiful. With that being said, I want to give someone that same feeling when I'm able to, so I promise to give back and make a difference in people's lives where I can. Thank you all for your compassion and consideration.
