I can’t even feed my son for Christmas.
What is a person supposed to do? I have always tried to help others whenever I could, and now that I am in need, no one seems to even know that I exist. I am a disabled widow on SSI, and have always been able to keep up with my bills until recently. I had $800 in car repairs, and have been trying to get caught up on my bills ever since. I am usually pretty resourceful, but right now, even the food banks are overwhelmed with so many people out of work that they haven’t been able to help us either. It’s six days until Christmas, and I feel like a failure as a parent. He can understand that we don’t have money for presents, but when you can’t even feed your child, it’s terrible. What do you say when your child says “I’m hungry”, and you don’t have anything to give them? Sometimes I feel that he would be better off without me. Between my disabilities, my lonliness (my husband passed away 11 years ago), and the daily struggle just to stay alive, I often feel like just giving up.
