Hi. My name is Brock. I'm a very independant individual, and I hate asking for help. However, I'm at that point when I absolutely need it. Here's the deal: I'm drowning it debt. Not just a little bit, but almost 54 thousand dollars (Canadian). I'm not one that's horrible with money, actually I'm very good with it. How did I get this much in trouble then? Well, it's all student debt. And, well, I was unemployed last winter for 6 months, so I had to pay my rent, and for my groceries with credit. I was going to school and EI told me that since I was unable to work full-time I didn't qualify. So I had no income for 6 months and my expenditures were in the 1500 a month range. So what did I take in school? First I tried to become a pilot. Those plans had stalled because I was going to run out of student loan before I got my commercial license. So I had decided to switch mid stream and get a trade in heavy equipment. Might as well get a good paying job and then finish with my flight training. Too bad there aren't many of those jobs where I live. I'm too poor to move to where theres work (out west) and am looking for help with that. A little back story about me. I'm a 25 year old male, in the prime of my life. Things should be going good for me, but I struggle every day. When I was 16 turning 17 I was diagnosed with a form of cancer called A.L.L. (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). 25 months of Chemotherapy and 2 weeks of Radiation on my brain and everything is better. Atleast thats what they tell me. I'm 120 pounds heavier from the medication I was on, and now have a debilitating bone disease called Avascular Necrosis (or AVN for short) which has been found in both of my knees and hips, my spine and my right shoulder. The AVN makes it hard to work because of the pain but I try my best. Right now I have a job as a landscaper which is wreaking havoc on my body. I'm working my ass off, and I'm sinking further into debt. I cannot afford my only ticket out, I'm barely hanging onto the end of my rope. It's hard to dig out of this hole when I'm by myself, my income is 1250-1300 a month and my minimum payment is 450 and rent is 700. That's 100 bucks for food for me and my dog and cat. Yeah, pretty much impossible. Help me, please. I'm running out of options.
