Ehh, maybe just a bit. But it’s not like you’re gross or anything. Probably just ten pounds or so…not too bad
2011-12-04 05:48:26 on I am in a desperate situation and need money for my child.
You are so brave. I wish i could help you. Maybe you should set up a page at gofundme.com? You can write more of your story on there and it’s free to do it.
2011-12-04 05:42:40 on Ummm….Hello, and welcome to my pathetic attempt at reaching out for help.
Alright, look. There are a lot of things i could say out of anger and hurt, but that wouldn’t help, so i won’t. I have been on help.com for more than four years, and have tried to help many people because it made me feel a part of something bigger than myself.
I know for a fact that HUD is not even taking applications, and if they were it would still take time and money that we haven’t got to get in. As for other housing options, i don’t know, but the problem would still be money for the upfront. We already have a deal on a house from a guy who owns it. He wants 3000 dollars, but will accept 2000 upfront. That will get us in and the title to the house will be ours. Then he wants a thousand per month to pay off the price he wants for it. So finding a house isn’t the problem, having the money is.
If i wasn’t a real person, or if this were some stupid scam, would i waste my time replying to any of you? Think about that. Would i be here trying to convince you? When really, why should i have to? But, ok just for fun, i’ll go into a little of how im feeling these days.
I am 27 (well 28 tomorrow) weeks pregnant with twin boys whom i love with all my heart. I was told i would never be able to have children, so you can imagine how i feel about that. Just recently got weaned off of my cymbalta which i took because of depression, and boy can i feel it. In the past three weeks, i have been going out of my mind. Every day i feel like ripping someones head off. I hate feeling like this. I can’t even tell when i’m over reacting to something or when i am reacting normally. So i might have taken more offense to what you said, i don’t know. I am constantly edgy, and overwhelmed, and scared, and desperate.
I argued with myself for a month before making the stupid donation page because i thought no one would care, or even take 5 minutes out of their wonderful precious life to even look at the dang page. The page by the way is not just some stupid page i set up, it’s on an actual donation site that lets people set up pages for various reasons. There are a lot of people on it that need help with medical bills, family crises, and other things. So why not check it out? What would it actually hurt you just to look? And yes there are a lot of scams going on and you should be careful about it, but that doesn’t mean we all are…a lot of us are genuinely in need of help. And please, don’t tell me that i’m basically doing nothing…i am doing the only thing i can do. And by the way, the only way to get people to get noticed is to share the link. Because otherwise, it’s a waste of time and no one will ever see it. Sharing…word of mouth…that is one of the best ways to promote anything…weather it be a business or a fund raiser or what have you. And THAT is what i’m doing. So apologies if that somehow steps on your toes or whatever. I’m sorry that i have to resort to asking for help on a website that supposed to be all about helping.
2011-12-03 09:17:34 on Ummm….Hello, and welcome to my pathetic attempt at reaching out for help.
Thanks. You have no idea who i am, what my story is, how freaking HARD my husband is ALREADY WORKING to save up. We have no family. Public housing my a s s…you know how freaking long those lists are? It could take months or years to get any help. I am not giving my babies up…you have no idea how long I’ve waited for them…was told i would NEVER have children. They ARE my first priority, that is why I’m doing this. Thanks for making me feel even worse than i already do about having to ask for help! You have every right to your opinions, but you have no idea who i am and what my life has been like. These kids deserve everything, i know that, and that is why i am doing this. If you don’t think i deserve anything, that’s fine. But these beautiful babies inside me do. And as for this being spam? I didn’t say people had to spread this link on here, did i? no, because that would be spam. All i asked was for people to pass it on….as in on other sites, or in their daily lives.
2011-12-03 08:55:28 on Ummm….Hello, and welcome to my pathetic attempt at reaching out for help.
Well, because at the time we thought it was going to be alright…things looked up and then BAM things happened.
2011-12-03 08:51:06 on I told my best freind that i loved her she said she
Is she like with someone or something…or does she think she can’t be with you because of family…?Maybe you should ask her for more clarity on why liking you back makes things worse.
2011-12-03 08:46:51 on I told my best freind that i loved her she said she
How did it make things worse?
2011-12-03 08:41:45 on Im just scared of disappointing you..
Dear, if you’ve done the best you could then there is nothing to be worried about. You can’t always fulfill everyone’s expectations of you, and you shouldn’t have to.
2011-12-03 08:34:56 on Ways in which Americans can participate in politics?
join a petitions site, that’s one thing i do, and a lot of them actually get victories and make changes. You could also support occupy wall street. Or you can run for office.
2011-11-21 12:41:58 on Not a racist post..Why are white people in general
There are two types of complaining. There is one that does nothing but make noise, and then there is the complaining that has merit and makes people do something about it. While I’ll admit there is an awful lot of the first going on in here, there is also very much of the second going on, but we don’t often see that because of the prostitute media. Not all Americans blame other cultures or “races” for their problems. And i have to say that some of it is because of other people, not directly, but because of our government. For instance, someone comes here from wherever….they get social security cards, healthcare, and whatever else, with no questions asked. They get funding for school or something, get a job and all that was paid for by “American” tax payers. Meanwhile, someone like me who was born here has to slave to get anywhere in life. I feel no ill will to those who come here for a better life, but lots of people do, not realizing that it’s our government that we should be upset at. It’s our government we should be complaining about, not each other!!! And then doing something about it.
2011-11-21 12:27:53 on So recently I’m frustrated, sad, and generally
Exactly! At the same time, i am inspired and hopeful because it seems people are finally waking up. We’ve needed a revolution in this country for decades, I’m just glad i get to be a part of it in some small way.
2011-11-21 12:00:09 on Not a racist post..Why are white people in general
Ummm….so you’re saying we are racist because we may have an opinion about immigrants coming here? What exactly are you saying, and what are these legitimate questions u have? The only reason u think white america in general is racist is because the few that actually are get the attention of the media. The majority that aren’t don’t, thus creating the falsehood that we all are.
2011-11-21 11:51:33 on This is not a racist post….
ok, how is this not a racist post? And sorry, but i don’t understand said post because poster did not finish the sentence. Are you saying we don’t stand up for what we believe in, or stand up for the rights of non-white peoples? please put your statement in a clear and finished way so we can answer your question…or whatever it is.
2011-11-21 11:44:32 on Not a racist post..Why are white people in general
Thanks for making it seem like that’s all Americans care about! I’m offended and saddened you think that. That’s all corporations care about, but we American people care about more than those selfish, greedy things. What the hell do u think Occupy Wall Street is all about? And those people are not just white, but of every color. And it’s not just an American issue either. If that’s not united, then i don’t know what is.
And I find Americans are pretty ******* untied over their love for money, guns and buying **** - that is the culture. A lot of Americans love other Americans and dislike immigrants - that’s a pretty united attitude as well. Productive? Not really, united, indeed.[/quote]

Wow! That’s a great one.
