Lost 1st gear what to do now?

Yup gone gone gone was at a stop light yesterday went to take off and doneski felt like my rear end turned all the way around. Had enough momentum to coast into a gas station got out and looked right away everything still there lol. Got back in and put it in drive and it started hoppin felt like it was skippin teeth. Then I put it in second and it took off good so I drove home takin off in second and shiftin into drive when I was up and going. My question is how long yall think I can run it like this lol I know I need to get it fixed but don't have the money and just lost my job. Tryin to start my own business and this really screwed me cause it's my only Car.
What do yall think?? Or should I figure something else out cause I can ruin more??

You'll just make it worse by driving it. Take it to a trans shop if you can.

agreed! stop driving it, it will tear up more and cost you more when you keep driving it.
