    I need help.

    It’s not easy to admit, and even harder to actually ask. It is especially hard, because I am generally a positive person by nature. I am thankful for all that I DO have, and know there are countless others that are in far worse situations than myself. But I am really and truly at the end of my rope here. I don’t know what to do, and I am scared, frustrated, depressed, and angry. I blame myself for being in this situation, but I don’t think it’s within my power to get out of it, without help.

    About myself and my family; I am married with 2 teenage children. I am gainfully employed, working for a great company, and while I don’t make great money, I make a decent wage. I am constantly trying to advance in my position at work, which would in turn improve my financial standing as well, but I can only control so much. My wife is currently unemployed. She worked at her last job for the better part of a decade (may have been over a decade even, certainly seemed like it), until her body betrayed her and she could no longer physically do what was necessary to perform her job. She tried transferring to another position, but was unable to and was eventually let go. Since her unemployment ran out, she has been unable to find another position. She has also applied for disability, due to her physical ailments and limitations, but has been denied time and again. I know that she too is frustrated and depressed that she has had no income lately, to help with our finances, but I don’t resent her for our situation. I know that if she could change things, and be completely able bodied again, she would do so in a heartbeat. I just try to be outwardly positive and encouraging that eventually she will find a suitable position again. My children are wonderful, one is an artist, the other into sports. We try to shield them from our financial difficulties as much as we can, but it is inevitable that they are exposed at times to just how bad off we are.

    The last year involved a lot of financial juggling to even stay close to afloat. Whether it was credit cards being used to pay bills, money being borrowed, or personal effects sold, I have managed to keep our heads above water. Late last summer we were forced to move, and our living expenses have gone up significantly. It’s been harder and harder to just break even. This last month has been particularly rough, as I feel like I am in a hole that I cannot escape from and it’s starting to swallow me up. My bank account is overdrawn, my car isn’t legal to drive right now (expired tags & needs some work, but still driving it because I have no choice), and it can be a struggle to put food on the table. Combine that with the fact that rent is about to be due, and I can’t pay it. I feel like I am letting everyone around me down.

    As I said, I am a very positive person by nature. You wouldn’t know by talking to me, the struggles I am going through. I generally go out of my way to help others when I can, I volunteer, I donate blood, and I just try to be a good person. It’s hard and humbling to admit that I’m the one in need of some help right now.

    I guess I am just hoping that this finds its way to the right person who may say “I’ve been there, I can relate, and I’d like to help.” Because I can’t even express how much it would mean to myself and my family. You would truly be throwing me a lifeline, as I drift in a sea of despair.
