Most of the comments you get on this forum are untruths. Your best bet is to ask someone who really live in your granny's area. GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND YOUR GRANNY !!!!!!

I tried to wash my underwear today to get those brown stains out butt they wouldn't come clean.
I wear them for a week or so and then turn them inside out and after another week I turn them around so I don't have to do laundry too often.
I've noticed the crotches on my underwear are rotting out. Why is this, I rotate them every week or so!

It's not complicated Monya. Take a bath and wash your Fruit of the Loom undies on a regular basis instead of once every six months.
It's no wonder they stick to the wall when you toss them!
Hell, they are rotted out from that rotten crotch of yours.

i'm sorry you have to move back to that shit-hole called Cahokia. Schools are horrible, streets are caving in, high school is broke and will probably cut all sports next year. It is just a god-awful place to raise a family.

I don't wanna move there but my grandma won't move I begged her she was raised in Cahokia I live over a hundred miles away I have to go check on her several times a week because my worthless family steals from her to buy drugs I went up there a couple weeks ago her water and electric was turned off cause someone in my family stole her money so I had to go pawn my jewerly to get her water and electric back on I really don't have a choice but to move closer to her. She wants me to move in with her but I been on my own since I was 17 I always work plus I have my grand baby I'm kinda stuck. I can't turn my back on her I will work fast food if I have too I'm so stressed I wish she'd move but you know how older people are set in there own way she won't move

No sir what is section 8 I'm in the process of getting laid off Friday is my last day I worked at my job for over 17 year I don't do drugs I don't drink alcohol I seem enough of that with my family that's why I moved away from em all it's just costing me to much in gas and wear on my car And I'm stressing everyday that I can't get up there too check on my grandma and when I call she tells me everything ok. Cause she don't want me upset she went without water and elec for 2 days if I wouldn't of went up there to check on her she'd probably still be without water and elec. I really don't have a choice but to move closer to her I've went there several times she only had a couple can of can good too eat cause my mother and father and the rest of em stole her money. I don't wanna move but I don't have much other option I love my grandma she raised me I'm thankful and blessed to have her and I can't take much more of them pos walking all over her. My husband is a over the road trucker whims hardly home he's working extra since I'm getting laid off. I'm so stressed my grandma raised me better if someone needs help I will bend over backwards to help ppl and now she needs me.

Get in touch with the Republican Times Journal news paper. I think they are in Waterloo. Run an ad that you want to rent somethng in Dupo. That is only about 10 minutes from Cahokia.Lots of apartments to rent in Dupo and it is safer. You may want to contact the Department of Aging and report the relatives that are stealing from her. They can offer you some advice and some help. Call a place called Call For Help in Belleville and they can give you some phone numbers of places to call.
Good luck.
