I really don't know if I can do this, but I need some help [View all]

I started a GoFundMe page. https://www.gofundme.com/d6ndjbpk

I don't know if this is allowed, and this is terribly embarrassing, but I need some help. I don't know how it happened, but my bills have really caught up to me and while I've been able to make due for the time being, significant increases in my rent, credit card bill, and electric bill have made it increasing difficult to meet all my financial obligations. I have a second job, but it's slow in the winter months and that second source of income has all but dried up until spring as it's largely an outdoor job.

I hope that you can take a look at my page and perhaps give me some help. If this isn't allowed, I am very sorry. This was damn hard to write this. If you can help, I would be incredibly gracious and appreciative.

Thank you,
