Jumpstarting My Life
Organized by: Karen Rogers
I'm a proud 62 year old woman and this is very hard for me. I got divorced afte31 years but stayed in the verbally abusive relationship because of my 2 wonderful sons.My ex moved Las Vegas and before he left he said he was going to just claim bankruptcy. I said I couldn't do that because we created the debt and that I would take the bills. I called a company that took all your bills and contacted the creditors so you had more time to pay. I've been paying $300 a month to pay these off and its getting aodt impossible when all I make is $10.50 an hour. Plus I had no idea that this ruins your credit even though you're doing the right thing in paying them instead of just claiming bankruptcy. I have dental insurance and desperately need dental work but can't get credit to pay what my insurance won't cover. My sons have no idea of my situation and worry sometimes when I won't go out with then and just stay home. They have no idea its because every penny I have goes to just maintaining my life. I've lived on ramen noodles for weeks but my bills were paid. I'm just asking for a little help in getting through this hard time in my life. Anything would be greatly appreciated and I'll make it up to you by volunteering or whatever it takes to pay back your generosity. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I just know 2015 was tough but I made it through..I'd just like to have 2016 a little more stress free.
