Recently my job ended (laid off) and since then things have been going downhill. I've been unable to get hired in anywhere except for a few days as a door-to-door direct marketer—these jobs are ridiculously high turnover and job security is only as good as your day's sales—and now my checking account is overdrawn and in the red over two hundred dollars. Rent is due on the first and I have utility bills I'm liable for including phone, Internet, and electric, with no money whatsoever to pay for any of them. I'm using someone else's Wi-Fi library as I type this. I need at least eight hundred dollars just to make expenses for October and even if by some miracle I can get those all paid, it's only a short term solution because unless I can get hired in at a stable job NOW, I'm going to have to go into the homeless shelter and lose everything. I've exhausted all efforts to try and obtain at least rental assistance, and there just isn't any because the non-profits are depleted of funds and facing more cuts. I've already had to sell off everything I had of value just to get covered for September. I really don't want to be homeless, but at this point I can't see any other alternative. I feel like a complete failure at life. Just needed to get all this off my chest.
