Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my story!!
I am reaching out as I find myself in a VERY desperate financial situation and in need of serious humbling assistance. This is something that I would not normally do and have fought my whole life to not ask for help but rather help others every chance I get. I am a professional what's 30 + years experience and have worked my entire life since a young teenager. Over those years the workforce has changed dramatically and I find myself in what I would call the crossfire at the moment. I have been an HR director for many years and pride myself on being thorough, professional, and always fair and trustworthy. That said, those are the very words that put me in this situation but I will not today or ever apologize for that. In just a few short months this financial devastation has brought me to almost total ruin. As of this week I face repossession of my car, cancellation of my car insurance, termination of my cell phone account, and disconnection of electricity in my home. If all of those terminations are follow through on which have been made very clear by the providers that they will be without the proper payments by next week I will then lose my job and shortly become homeless within the month. How could a professional with so much experience and education find herself in this predicament you ask? Well, in May I found a wonderful job that offered me a great salary with benefits and a great road to retirement to look forward to. Unfortunately just a short time into the job I discovered many unacceptable business practices that my position was responsible to correct immediately. When I brought this to Management's attention it was made very clear to me I was to comply with the way they were "use to doing business" or I would not be welcome much longer. It wasn't long before I could digest this that I found myself out the door and without an income. I was able to save enough money in my few payroll cycles to maintain my rent and a few minor bills however the ones mentioned earlier were unfortunately not able to be kept up with which is how I landed here today. The good news is that I was able to find an attorney to work with who feels very strongly that this case will result in capturing the wages lost which will then put my life back together.
So again I thank everyone who is reading and I pray that the financial miracle will present itself soon and life can resume back to some type of normal.
Blessings to all!
