I’m in a major transitional period in my life. One of the things I’m phasing into is a new job (Yay! Super thankful). While I am already working, my new pay schedule is very different than what I’m used to; I won’t get paid until October 5th. (I lost my old job abruptly and have no foreseeable income to cover my expenses jthis month). I work a few side jobs in addition to my 9-5, and I’m running my body down trying to grind 7 days a week; it’s really difficult to manage non stop working, especially with fibromyalgia. It’s a condition I’ve been managing for years that causes lots of chronic widespread pain. My body is tired (some of you know I’m also in a constant battle with chronic depression; my mind and spirit are weary as well). Even with my hustle strong, I’m not quite making it this month. That’s a big stressor because I have living expenses that cannot wait.
I’ll never get on my feet or keep from sinking without some help, so at the encouragement of a loved one, I’m asking for any and all help you are moved to give. The following is a list of things I am raising funds for, in order of priority:
Rent due by 9/25- $600
Gas for my commute to/ from work - $150
Food for the next 3 weeks until payday, 10/05/14 - $200
Meds/ doctor’s visits: $125
It seems so daunting when I type it out, but I know that what’s more daunting is having nothing at all and trying to make money appear from thin air. Thank you for taking the time to read, reblog, and/ or share this post. It means a lot when people stand in the gap for me. My PayPal email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be posting with updates as I near October 1. Again, thank you so much.
