I'm a mother of a cute one month old baby-girl. I made some mistakes and I had some really bad luck. What exactly happened? Please sit down comfortably, it will take some time to explain.
I was on a sick leave during the last months of my pregnancy (I had thrombocytopenia, common in pregnancies but dangerous in my line of work). I screw up (mistake number one) and I haven't delivered to my boss papers related to the sick leave on time. She decided to fire me because of that. Of course I applied to the court, to change that decision but it takes time. The hearing will take place on 19/03. Because I'm currently (till the positive for me decision of the court) unemployed I cannot receive money for the maternity leave.
Till the time of birth I stayed on the sick leave, because, first of all, I needed to, second - I was at least payed by our social insurance. Then I made a mistake number two. I didn't know, that I should deliver them one more paper (related to the fact, that I was suddenly without work). Without that paper they couldn't send me cash. I already delivered it to them, but they have one month to pay me. And believe me, they are not in a hurry.
I need to pay for my rent. I have bills to take care of too. This month. And I don't have money to do that. I won't have my maternity leave cash till April probably (I don't know how long it will take) and my overdue payment from social insurance will not come till march.
I have a small baby, the picture of her you can see. She is healthy, fed and in a warm place. Please, please! Help me to keep it that way.
You might think that $400 is a silly amount and that I should be able to gather it in no time. I cannot. I sold what I could, I pawn what was accepted. I have run out of options. I asked my friends and family. I'm still desperate. Please, help me. Please.
