We were doing all right with paying bills. Then like a lot of other people I was laid off. The unemployment checks just was not the same. This was about the same time a local car plant announced it was shutting down, and any open jobs were quickly snatched up. Besides finding another better paying job, it has been really hard in keeping and paying bills on time. Discover card decided to jack up the interest rate to 29.9% interest. This is making the bill so high we can not possibly pay it and pay other bills.
The other bills are not too bad. We are starting to make a little head way in paying those off, but more bumps in the road keep appearing. My son is complaining of one of his tooth is hurting(it is a baby tooth), but I was taken off the dental insurance. I could not afford the cobra coverage. I truck needs new ball joints put on it, and it is listed as a $900 dollar repair. The list keeps going one.
I am really hating to ask for help, but I just don't know what else to do. Would there be anyone willing to help out with any extra donations. They would be greatly appreciated. We have about $16,000(Those charges have been adding up for awhile).
