Time to swallow my pride
Organized by: Carly Dunn
It never hurts to ask. I am extremely embarrassed and desperate. I am trying very hard to better myself but its slow going and bills are relentless. I am a 29 year old full time student. I also work for a very large insurance company. Unfourtionately, I just started and you wouldn't believe how hard it is to get people to talk to you about their insurance. I have been certified in property and casualty in 3 states since July and have only made one sale. I also feel obligated to stay and make my boss the money back he paid to get me study materials and to get me licensed. Most people have to pay for that themselves and I feel he went out on a limb for me. I also see the rewards for successful agents and would be really disappointed if I had to quit to early into it. I have also had a mystery medical issue the last few months. I have been to three different doctors and everybody says something different. One told me I had an inflammation in the cartlege connecting my ribs and breast bone ( Costochondritis). Another told me it sounded like symptoms of angina. Yet there has been no further testing. The left side of my chest feels like I'm having a charlie horse...either my heart or lung but always on the left side. It comes and goes but when its happening I'm nearly in tears. As a full time student, I receive financial aid. However, I had to spend it all on paying the people back who helped me throughout the summer with my car payments, rent and a vet bill. I still don't have all the books I need for school. I have always been able to take care of myself and not have to ask for help. This is extremely humbling but at this point, I'm willing to ask for help. I have sold and pawned the few things I owned that had any value and this is my last resort. Thank you and god bless.
