Overwelmed and I\'m not ashamed to ask for help.

Angel, Florida

Hello, my name is Angelina. I would like to tell my situation. I admit that I'm pretty lucky and there's people in much worse situations but I need help. I have been whittling a $16,000 school loan down to $11,500 over the past few years. I am 28 years old and I do not make enough to live on my own. I am not ashamed to say that I still live with my parents because they too are going through hard times and just trying to keep afloat. I get $16 every month from food stamps but that's not enough for me let alone help my parents.I help them anyway I can. My mom has arthritis and symptoms of carpal tunnel so I help her with tasks. My car is going to die soon. I have been taking good care of it but all the little things that are wrong are adding up. I finally got dental insurance from my work and went to the dentist. After getting xrays they said all the work will be $2,600. I just stared at him and then asked if there are any payment plans available. He said all they offer is a dental credit card. I mulled on that thought all week . Recently, one of my metal caps popped off and splice right through the filling underneath. So as of today, I applied for the card. I'm scared because before I was just making due but now I don't know how I'm going to do this. If I look for a second job, my first job will cut my hours if I change my availability . I found you on Begslist and I would like to say thank you for giving me a few minutes in your busy day to read my story. Nothing is too small, I would gladly accept advice.
