Life is pain. We are told this all our lives and it's true. So many of us struggle just to get through each day. I know that I am blessed with many people in my life who love me and that deep down I am a lucky person. Life would also be so much simpler if we didn't need money. Unfortunately, the opposite is often the case and without money life can be very hard. The past few years have taken a heavy toll on me and on my family; not just financially but also emotionally, personally and even health-wise. Several years ago my husband began having serious health issues that kept him out of work for extended periods. This slowly drained our savings and drastically lowered our credit. Then he lost his job and was unemployed for almost a year. He had always had a problem with anger, and over time this only got worse. He drank too much and could be explosive and verbally abusive. We both became severely depressed. I developed high blood pressure and was physically and mentally exhausted. Finally we lost our home and were forced to move into a rental with my daughter and also with my 76 year old mother (whose health is also declining). Even after finding a job (at half his previous pay) we were still unable to get back on our feet and the stress made him resentful. Finally one night he blew up at all of us and drove off in his car. Shortly after that he tried to drive it off a bridge. Thankfully he was not badly injured but the car was totaled and he spent several days in the hospital under psychatric treatment. After that, our marriage was over and we are now separated. Although we are amicable it is very unlikely that we will ever get back together. Now I am supporting myself and my daughter on my own with no spousal support and only a little help from Mom who lives purely on Social Security. Although I do make decent money I am struggling to pay off a mountain of debt. We have just found out that the homeowner we lease from wants to sell so we have to move. I have no money to pay deposits or fees and no way to pay for moving expenses. I also need to find funding for my daughter who wants to go to college but we are told we don't qualify for financial aid. Private loans are out of the question due to my poor credit and foreclosure. I tried to request a hardship withdrawal from my 401k but was turned down. I don't know where else to turn. I believe in Angels; both the spiritual kind and the earthly kind. I know there are many people out there in much more dire straits than me, but if some kind people are willing to help me now, maybe I will be in a position in the future to turn around and help someone else who, like me, is in a tough spot with no place to turn. I want to give my family a fresh start and hope for a better future. I thank you for your kind consideration.
