Catch 22

From Christella Lambert

The pest eradication treatment costs ~$900. And my monthly rent is $1400. Since I've been suspended from work, I haven't earned enough to pay the rent nor the pest control payment. My job depends on me completing this.

I'm in a dire situation (kind of a catch-22). I've been suspended from work because of a bed-bug infestation in my apartment (& my employer cannot risk such pests in their line of work.) The bed-bugs appeared when a temporary roommate brought his infested furniture/clothing into the apartment. He has since beat a hasty retreat but didn't take his lil' friends with him. Nor did he disclose that these pests would be a problem, to begin with.The pest eradication treatment costs ~$900. And my monthly rent is $1400. Since I've been suspended from work, I haven't earned enough to pay the rent nor the pest control payment. But I can't go back to work until I get certification that the pest problem is resolved. Thus. the catch-22.  If there are compassionate & generous people out there who could help me out of this predicament, I would appreciate it so much. I trust that there are those out there who are in a position to do so. And I pray that you would consider contributing to get me back on track with my life. Thank you for reviewing my request, and if you do contribute, thank you so much for that as well.I was horribly abused by my ex-husband. The marks he left on me are very visible. He put acid on my teeth, and now they are all rotting out. I do not have the funds to have any work done on my mouth. I was told by my obstetrician that in the privacy of our home he did me so roughly that he twisted my uterus, and scar tissue has build-up severely. I feel so ugly now that I cannot even get a good job. I have a degree, but no one wants to hire me. My ex stole everything I had, clothing, shoes, jewelry, cars, my paintings, and my musical instruments. Everything my parents had given me is gone as well. He also wiped me out financially.I am not crying over the lost stuff, it is mostly how I look, that is most bothersome to me. I work so hard to make a new start. Please. have a heart. I need the funds by next month.
