After Missing Work to Care for My Mother, I Need Help Catching up on a Bill Please!
I'm a divorced woman, and I currently live on my own. A few months ago, my mother came down sick with Covid-19, and I had to leave work to care for her. She was in the hospital for months, and I nearly lost her. I'm thankful that she's okay, and I would leave everything behind to help her again in a heartbeat; however, being out of work for that long with no pay has been extremely hard on my financial situation.
I've fallen behind after being out of work for almost two months, and I don't make enough to be able to ever catch up on all of my bills. I was working two jobs to make ends meet before the pandemic, but I was furloughed from one when it began, so now I've only got my part-time job to help pay the bills. Even with the little bit of income I get from my part-time job, I can barely afford to put food on the table. I'm really struggling, and I need help if I'm going to be able to catch up on all of my bills before it's too late. Specifically, I'm asking for help with my car insurance because it's a few months behind and I can't afford to drive without it.
Getting help with my car insurance would allow me to get to and from work safely so that I can at least keep up with some of my bills, but it would also free up more income to go towards other things that I'm behind on like my rent. This assistance would get me going in the right direction again, and I'm confident that with this help, I can get back to a point where I'm independent again. Thank you all for you kindness and consideration, and I promise to do my best to pay this help forward one day.
