Hi everyone. I've been gone for a while, don't know if you noticed! I am back with a regretful plea.
I'm back today because you are the community that I belong to; the only one. Life took a terrifying turn for the worse recently. A new job after a few months of unemployment. Still working 2 jobs. Now I am NOT. Shocked and confused to have been let go from the new job "You don't seem EXCITED enough about the job." What?!!
4 weeks later and 38 online resume submissions- nothing yet. No unemployment benefits! Hearing next Wednesday. No food help; finally approved yesterday..card doesn't work..one more WEEK. Utility shut off notices came on Friday. Mortgage bank threatened foreclosure. I've lived here 20 years this past March.
Long story short - My son made a GoFundMe. I didn't find out until the next day. Now I know; if he's scared enough to do such a thing then I have NO business being proud. He oddly put his dad in it. He's battling cancer - what my son doesn't know is that his dad hasn't given financial support for several years. I'm not telling him, it's his Dad after all.
I don't know if it's appropriate or allowed to share the link.
So I won't. I will ask to please message me if you would like the link to the GFM - to share, to help. You can find the post under Eli Clemens on the GFM website.
I have no family as you know. Single Mama for 11 years.
My best hasn't been good enough.
Thanks for reading this my godless friends!
The humiliation is acute. I have to try nonetheless.
