My name is Anna I am a single mother of 3 young children one in which has a disability. I am a hard-working individual who is always on top of things and making sure I support my children with everything.
Ever since coronavirus, I have been struggling to make ends meet, and I am not the type to ask, I rather find my own way to support my family, but right now I don't have a clue where or how to support my family due to this situation, and this is hard for me to ask but I am falling so behind on everything and I never experience this in my whole life, and so I am asking for help.
I had a good working job as an event planner but this is where it gets super stressful for me as I worked for cash so there is no EI for me or how other people who lost their jobs got help from the government I don't get this. And so, I tried to see what else I can do but I never been super stuck and I never had any situation where I am at an end.
I always find ways to support my children but this is the first time where I really don't know what to do. And this is the honest truth.
I am behind on my cell phone bill; my rent hasn't been paid this month as I used all my savings on last month's rent and I was couldn't pay my other bills.
I can't believe I came to this but I am writing here to ask for help. It's been hard to focus, eat, sleep, or even smile and I am a happy person.
I know I am going to lose everything my bills are adding up every month, I will lose everything soon so I am a bit worried and scared. I am so way behind on everything for the past 3-4 months now ever since this situation with the virus, it had brought me to the floor and I never ever thought I would see myself in this way.
I don't know if I am even asking right for your help as I had never in my life asked for any help from anyone, I always provided for myself and for my children I never relied on anyone ever, so I do apologies if I am not asking right or saying it right this is a bit awkward but I feel so lost and stuck and I would even work for you if you have something for me to do I would work for it till its paid off.
I have NO idea how to fix this but it's super hard not all businesses are allowed to be open so this point what do I have to lose and try to ask, it doesn't hurt to ask.
I am trying so hard to be strong and to support 3 young children as best as I could but my son told me something that made me look online for help, he said "mommy it doesn't make you a bad mommy if you need some help." I always teach my children to always work hard never borrow anything from anyone if you want something you need to work hard t get it. And it breaks my heart for them to see me this way.
But, it's no one to blame but the virus, I even called my cell phone company bill and they only gave me up to this week to pay off my bill!!! So heartless I had never missed a bill with them always on-time and I been with them for more than 10 years and then they gave me a limit when to pay. I just can not believe this is where I am right now. It doesn't feel real; it feels like a movie that never has an ending. I really feel this is just a bad dream or it just doesn't seem real, but it is, and usually, I am fast to fix any problems I come across but this one is hard to fix because it out of my control. and it's making me feel so down.
I am 3-4 months late on my bills and I have never been late in anything before so knowing it keeps adding up every month to a number I had never dealt with before it's hard to sleep and focus it's an awful feeling.
Struggling is my BIGGEST fear and this is how I feel and I can't believe I am in this spot.
And I understand their other horrible people out there scamming and asking for money but I can send you my account numbers to any bill so that you can either send a donation to me or you can pay the bill or rent directly to that company, either way, I will appreciate it. Or even I can do some work for you something to do with online or anything.
I have any bill with account numbers I wanted to post it on here but I was told not to and to only send if I was being asked by someone their video chat. And I don't mind doing a video chat so you can see who I and my children are
I am owing 3 -4 months past due in my cell phone bill, Telus, hydro, gas, and rent is owing for just this month as I had to put all the money in for the month of May
I usually pay $1603 for my rent and bills together and I can manage with this but owing almost to $5000 I don't know how to pay this off and it keeps adding every month I will lose everything that I worked so hard for.
Things are looking like they are getting better but for my end still, we are not allowed to do events yet. But if you can just feel what I am feeling it's super hard to think and focus, I feel like I am never hungry but my stomach is going in circles.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. (and yes, I am willing to video chat with you to prove I say what is said is true.) I don't have skype but I have "zoom" but I am open to download any video chat software just let me know.
And again I do apologies if this is not the right way to ask for help this is my 1st time asking I did everything on my own so I may repeat myself a lot and it's because I never had asked for help EVER and I am really trying to be as honest and as many details but same time to let you know it's really awkward to ask. But I am at the end of the road and I don't know what to do.
Thank you for your time in reading.
