I am a single mom trying to make it on my own. I have a 3year old daughter who will be 4 in February. I have 2 jobs but I am behind on rent and daycare. I don't know how I will pay rent much less get Christmas or birthday presents for my daughter. I work as a home health aide for 13 hours a week at 8 an hour. That is my current client is allowed that many hours a week. So hopefully I get that a week sometimes less. I only get paid 1st and 15 th and after taxes I don't have enough to pay one full Bill. I also clean for what was 4 now is 5 clients. The problem is 4 are biweekly at $60(×2) $75 (what I just raised from $65) the new one that will be $90 but a longer drive and my weekly that is a 50 minute drive cleaning for my aunt but I currently am leaving with $50 but that is to work off. A debt from her helping me get my car out of the impound.I am no stranger to work and work my butt off. I still feel I'm only getting more and more in debt. I am months behind on rent @ $550 mo and weeks behind on daycare @ $150wk. Not to mention my car is not tagged and inspectedvand is about to break down. And I don't know what I'll do about Christmas. I'm asking for any help you want to give will be appreciated. Thank you.
Here is my update of our situation.
May have some of the same aspects of our situation I previously mentioned but is a lot more detailed.
Hi I am a single mother of a 3yr (almost 4yr) old little girl. We recently moved out on our own about 5mo ago. I left her dad that I had been with for 6-7yrs. She is my only child and the most important thing in my world. I tried everything to make it work with her dad, although he was on occasion physically abusive and physiologically abusive and emotionally abusive every second of every day. He put me down and sheaded every bit of self worth I had. I am not going to get into that but if you've been in an abusive relationship you know how it is. I finally left when he ignored me pointing out danger I saw coming and almost to talk to my daughter. I left to keep my daughter away from danger and give her a better life. I didn't want her to continue seeing how I. was treated and think that was normal. I since have been struggling. I owe on every bill I get. I was working 3 jobs but now only 2. I went too an interview fit a. staffing company and " was hired ". I told the last hiring me what I. was trying to do and that was replace one out my jobs. I was gong to quite because I. worked very hard for barely min wage, but wanted make Sure I had work lined up first. She asured me_ I quit_ I have not seen one days with from them. With the 3 jobs I was getting behind and worked 7 days a week, 5 days a week I Worked 2 jobs a day. I am trying my best. I am a very hard worker. I'm working and trying to expand my clientele with the two jobs I have now. I work self contracting as a housekeeper. And I. work through a. company doing home health. I guess my point is I'm not lazy I out my all into my work. I just an having a hard time adjusting. It has been hard just learning how to be out in the world like a normal part of society. My ex had alienated and shut off to from the world in order to break me down and controle me.
Ontop of my bills being behind and my landlord about to kick us out, My car I actually own just broke down on me. My only way to my jobs and to take my kid to daycare broke and will not start. I'm suppose to start for a new client tomorrow morning and don't have a wat to get to it. I can't imagine were Christmas is going to come from. If only there really was a Santa. I. missed all the deadlines for all the Charitable Christmas help around here. My daughter has run a high fever for 5 days now and although I had a vehicle someone was gong to let me borrow a few times to work and back I had to cancell and then ended up rescheduling my whole week. I cancelled because the night before I was to start for my new client I was up and down with my daughter Who had a 104° fever. Daycare will not take a kid if they are running a fever and honestly with a fever as high as 104° I don't feel safe leaving my baby. I've taken her 2x in the last 5 days. I've missed and rechedualed this weeks work resulting in less money to live on and pay bills. Its so close to Christmas and I can go on and on about our misfortunes IM JUST BEGGING FOR ANY KIND OF HELP PLEASE IF I HAVE TO ADMIT DEFEAT THAT I CANT DO THIS ON MY OWN FOR MY CHILD AND MYSELF IT WOULD MEAN HAVING TO GO BACK INTO THE HELL I GOT US OUT OF AND IT WOULD BE WITH A VENGEANCE BECAUSE HE WOULD USE MY FAILED ATTEMPT AGAINST ME AND AS AMMO. ANYTHING ANYONE CAN DO I APPRECIATE AND APPRECIATE ANYONES TIME THEY TOOK FOR READING THIS.
