Financial Crisis – The True DisasterĀ 

Living in Puerto Rico has become a real challenge. The island is suffering from a financial crisis. Personally, I’m feeling that crisis. Income is very limited, food has been limited in my apartment. Situations arise without notice. At this time my wife and I are waiting for the landlord to fix the apartment. Basically, we are living in an uncomfortable manner due to the fact that we lost our furniture, all because of the termite situation. We are waiting for the landlord since the 30th of last month. I’m a struggling blogger. It has not been easy for me to log in as well, trying to save battery power on my cellphone for emergencies. 

There has been many issues accumulated within time. Life here is not easy at all. I’ve created a GoFundMe account in order to raise funds for the current emergency. I’m going to try and add it to the side bar. I’m actually hoping for a positive change in my circumstances. My wife has begun to feel depressed with everything that is occuring here. I will keep focusing on writing. 

The challenges we face are a true test of our mental stability

Puerto Rico Goes Bankrupt Under PROMESA

Today Puerto Rico will or might be going bankrupt under the protection of PROMESA title III. What does it mean for us? This situation is out of control. Our Governor Ricardo Rosello has decided to take this to Federal court and have the current debt monitored by Judges, since the Financial Control Board does not want to negotiate anything that our administration puts on the table. This is a concern because local businesses, health care, Federal Housing, Food Stamps, etc are at risk. We need help from the United States and beyond so that this crisis can be balanced and everything gets back to normal. Puerto Rico is on a thin financial line.

We can only hope for the best here.Ā Rosello Declares Bankruptcy Under Promesa
