Still waiting for the dicision on my appeal hearing its been a month. I would put a bullet in my head if I thought it would help. But that would make things worse for my poor wife and kids. I cant afford to get my medication for my heart palputations, so I'll have to deal with them for a few days. I want to sell my truck, but my wife won't let me, we all ready sold our boat . I have a big heater in the garage I am trying to sell, but have'nt had any luck, I tryed craigslist but had nothing but people wanting to scam you. I have a plow truck I could sell, kinda would **** us if we get alot of snow, but I can't get it started.. OOOO well thats it just wanted to vent a little, don't have anyone to talk to about this stuff. Please don't respond with go to a food bank because I dont have the gas.
Hi there- we have so been there with worries financially, food, etc. Do you have any family around that could help financially? Call St. Vincent De Paul's. They can give money, food, etc. They can also help towards making rent, house payments, paying utilities. Can your wife call off work to save on gas so you have more money? Can she car pool? Just some suggestions...
I too get angry that Americans are struggling, yet, we give money to foreign countries.
We have gotten through hard times by giving it to the Lord...he always comes through for us....Hang in there, we are with you on this difficult painful walk.
