I'm on Medical Leave & Need Help Keeping Our Lights on Until I Go Back to Work!
I'm a single mother with a wonderful daughter at home. I'm raising her completely on my own because her father isn't in the picture. My daughter is an exceptional student, and I'm very proud of her for doing so well in school. I work very hard to provide for both of us, and I work full-time. However, we do live paycheck to paycheck and have a hard time covering bills when unexpected expenses come up or when I miss work.
Right now, my daughter and I are struggling because I had to take medical leave from my job in September, and I still haven't been able to return to work. My leave began when I had surgery at the end of September, and the surgery was more complicated than my doctor originally thought it would be. It's taken me a long time to recover from my surgery, and my return to work date has just been extended as well. While I was able to get short-term disability, I didn't receive it until a month after my surgery. On top of that, the benefits were significantly less than what I'm used to making, so I've struggled to keep up with our bills. We're behind on our electric bill, and I won't be able to catch up until I go back to work, which won't be for another few weeks.
I'm very humbly asking for assistance with our electric bill so that we can keep our lights on until I return to work. Once I'm back at my job, I'll be able to handle our bills from there on out. My daughter and I would be so grateful for this assistance, and I promise that we will do our best to repay this very generous assistance with our electric bill.
