My family and I need Help,
It seems that the more time passes, the worse off our situation gets.
My husband’s grandmother passed away 5 months ago. She raised him and it was extremely hard on all of us. Then there were the fire’s at Possum Kingdom Lake (Texas) where we lived at the time. We had to evacuate, and our already strapped finances were non existent after that. I know they are burning once again, but thankfully we dont live down there anymore.
Then, my husband has been sick for a while, but they couldnt figure out what was wrong with him untill he went to the ER and they found out that he had a gallstone which brought on Pancreantitis. He could have died. Because they took so much time figuring it now his liver and kidney’s are damaged. It’s kinda sickly funny, because he doesnt even drink.
Now, we moved closer to my school, but because of them not telling me some important facts i’m not going to be able to go to school this semester. But the only i job i could get at short notice was at walmart. I just got my first pay check, i made hardly anything. Not enough to pay for the childcare that i need to work. And definetly not enough to help cover all of the bills that are due at the first of the month.
We got a Title loan just so we would have the money to move, and now i’m worried that we’re going to loose our car, our only mode of transportation.
We don’t have near enough to pay even half of our bills. And we dont even have frivalous bills like cable (no tv) and cell phones (they were turned off last month cause we didnt have the money to pay).
I even pawned my wedding ring and my hubby’s grandma’s wedding ring, foolishly thinking that things were going to get better and we would have the money to get it out of hawc. But the way things are going, i’m afraid that we might end up homeless before the year is out.
And it’s not like we’re lazy, my husband works over 40 hours a week, but because of some retarded laws, over 2/3 of his check goes to his ex wife for childsupport. I’m not saying he shouldnt support his kids, but we shouldnt live in poverty because of it.
And poverty we are in. It’s never been this bad. I thought the worst was behind us. But we have just about sold everything of value that we own. I just put our playstation on ebay, and i’m selling every movie we have (except for kids movies).
And that’s the horrible thing. We have 2 beautiful kids, i dont want them to end up on the street.
I’m a christian, but i’m scared.Please God help us. Help our country turn around.
I know there are other’s in worse situations then us. I’m praying for all of us.
I ask that you pray too.
