I Need Help Getting My Car Back After Health Problems & COVID Put Me Out of Work!
I'm a 33-year-old single mom to a beautiful angel who I'm blessed to be able to call mine. She's 9 years old, and she's the best thing that's ever happened to me. I've always worked hard to make sure she has everything she could ever need, and I've always worked hard in general honestly. Ever since I was a teenager, I've worked a full-time job. Two years ago, I managed to find the job of my dreams, and I began to work as a drafter for a traffic engineering department at a wonderful firm. Before that, I had always worked as a waitress, but I knew that I needed to find a job with benefits and insurance, especially after divorcing my ex-husband.
Last year I started to get very sick and was experiencing fevers on a regular basis. Shortly after being examined, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and also had a brain scan for MS, but I haven't been able to go in for a follow-up due to Covid-19. During that time, I was placed on short-term disability, and then, my condition began to worsen. I went in for an emergency hysterectomy, and since then it's been difficult to get by in every sense of the phrase. I was let go of from my job after being out of work for so long, and that really broke my heart if I'm being honest. I wasn't able to work out an unemployment claim because they said I quit, so I've been fighting to try to get that settled. In addition to the financial hardship, I've been struggling heavily with depression. I'm working hard to try to get into therapy so that I can continue on with my life, but it's been difficult during Covid-19. I recently lost my car because I haven't been able to make payments on that with nothing coming in. I'm asking for help to recover my vehicle so that I can start to search for work again, and so that I can get to and from my therapy appointments.
The health issues, losing my job, and the pandemic have all just been too much for me to handle on my own. Normally, I have a hard time asking for help, but I know that this situation isn't about me at all really; it's about my daughter and taking care of her. She's my biggest priority, and I know that if I can get this help, I'll be able to keep us going through all of this. Truly, I don't know how I could ever repay this generosity and compassion, but I know that every day, I'll work hard to take care of my daughter, and I'll be able to do so thanks to your kindness. Thank you.
