Need help with my bills
First of all, Thank You for taking the time to read this.
First of all I guess I should tell you abit about myself. I am 34 and I live in California in a house I inherited from my grandmother who passed away last year.
I can not believe I find myself in this situation where I am having to ask total strangers for money to help me pay my bills. I am sure noone on here ever thought they would be in the situations that they are in that brought them here to ask for help from others. I find myself deep in debt. I am unemployed and unable to find a job. I have maxed out my credit cards paying for our living expenses, food, electricity, gas, water, etc. and now owe $26k on them. I live with my father who is 76 and has schizophrenia and is not able to live alone. We are both living off of his social security check which is only $900 a mo.
I have not defaulted on my credit cards yet, but I will in the next month if I am unable to find a job. We owe $2k in property taxes in April and I am having to decide what bills will get paid and what bills will not so that we have enough money to pay that bill, so that we will have a roof over our heads.
I do not know what to do. I feel so bad for not being able to contribute any money to my father to help us pay the bills, but I have not been able to find a job yet. I just do not know what we will do.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
I certainly will pay-forward any generosity that is bestowed upon me here. Thank You for reading this =).
