My husband lost his job and right around the time he lost his job we had to clean out our bank account to pay someone back.
That was almost 2 months ago. He still hasn’t been able to get a job, and we have not only been playing catch up from the bills we had to put on hold until I got paid, but we don’t have anyone to borrow from.
We have already borrowed from his family numerous times and can’t anymore, our friends dont have money, some of them don’t even have jobs, my family doesnt have money. We are surrounded by people that are either broke or out of a job. So borrowing is out of the question.
I have already pulled out a couple payday loans and weren’t able to pay them back. So those are now in collections.
I have poor credit and don’t have or can’t get any credit cards. We are surviving off of what I make alone at work, and it’s not enough for the 2 of us or to cover my bills.
I don’t qualify for financial assistance or welfare, I’ve already checked out the qualifications. Which is stupid because, even tho I bring home 1000 every two weeks here is what next paycheck looks like :
80 my paycheck
-0 – Rent
-6 – Car Payment
-8 – Car Insurance
-$ 85 – Our Cell Phones
- – Wedding Rings
(I don’t know how much my employer will pull for health benefits)
So see, this already totals to : 1,289.00
How am I supposed to get gas and food?
My company is struggling right now with money I am too afraid to ask for a 0 pay advance. Ive been here 4 years and know the owner well enough that he’s not in a position.
I feel like killing myself I don’t know what to do to survive my next paycheck
