OKAY SO HERE’S THE THING
I live in the Atlanta area and anyone who lives in a big city knows how bad the traffic gets around five o’clock. Which, unfortunately, is when I have to leave for class.
My car is totalled due to a wreck I had on 5/14/13. I don’t need help with the insurance payments, or the tickets that followed the accident, but I do need help.
Everything that happened because of this accident I’m paying for already. I don’t expect help with the tickets because those are all on me and my own fault.
I’m a single mom, work a minimum wage job, go to night school, and have a six year old son with speech and learning problems. My son has doctor, dentist, and neurologist appointments along with needing me to go to his school for meetings with the special education teachers.
I can walk to work, that’s no problem, and I can get rides to school if I desperately need to because my school is very close. I cannot however manage the half hour drives and all day trips that are my kid’s doctor appointments without a vehicle of my own.
I’m trying everything I can, but on such a small paycheck, and being the only one in my house with a job, I barely have enough to pay the bills as it is. At the end of the month I’m left with about $20 to my name, and that usually gets spent on more gas.
I’m not just asking for help here on tumblr. I’m selling my BJD collection, giving up every outing we had planned, borrowing money, and doing everything I can think of to try and make enough money to buy a car. It doesn’t even have to be a nice car.
I need about $1000 to actually get a vehicle that I’m confident I can drive with my son inside. Currently I have nothing, since this just happened, but I would really appreciate help. If you can’t help, could you please signal boost this for me?
It’s actually breaking me to type this out. No one wants to have to make one of these posts, but I have to think of what’s best for my family and do everything in my power to make things right so that they can be taken care of.
Thank you so much for reading this. I know some people see a lot of these on their dash, and they can get pretty overwhelming.
Thanks, and I’m sorry if I’ve bothered you with this post. I’m just trying to get things in motion.
