I think the rude comment is really uncalled for. I suggest you do go to social services. Id her brother is disabled he should get a montly disablity check, if he doesn't already he should go to social security and ask for the info.
The single moms should sue for child support. SRS will help you sue them for free.
I feel for you. But, the government has programs for low income families. I think you should not feel ashamed and take the benefits you can.
God bless you.
P.s. join a local church they usually have funds to help people in need.

Why are your bills so high? Water bill is 120 is that from past amounts?
I have 6 ppl living in our 3 bedroom apt. and we pay $11 for water.
Our Elec. bill is under $200, our gas is like $27, and our cable is about $69, and my phone bill was $33.
I think you need to cut some stuff out, and there are ppl that are worse off than you believe me.
My hubby is a disabled vet.
We have satellite, because IMHO he deserves it. He fought for our country, and he gets very little from VA.
They don't help with his eyes anymore, they cut off helping with hearing aids, he needs teeth, they won't help him there.
They only thing they do is help him with seeing a doc, giving him tylenol, headache pills, and muscle relaxers.
They don't give him any pain pills anymore, and he has fms and is in lots of pain all day long.

I would personally cut off the cable. You don't need it to survive.
Do you get any assistance from SRS or anything food stamps, money or anything?
Do you go to salvation army, red cross, or the food banks?
These are the only suggestions I can give you at this point.

To whoever wrote this comment. You're an ass. There are a hell of a lot of people out there who truly cannot work! Reason behind that...THEY'RE DISABLED! You are definately not a very compassionet person at all. You are a sour person, who is sick and tired of working, and wished YOU could get on assistance for help. You need to grow up.

why is darrell kansas an ass??? My husband is disabled and I work 2 jobs 7 days a week. I also get tired of paying for every welfare mother who continues to have kids and cries cause she can't make it on what welfare pays. QUIT having kids...get a job and some self respect. By the way...its her choice to keep her sisters, their kids, and her brother living with her. She could get a different job. People are begging for help all over. Her choice to stay in that job

hi everyone has a story. I am disabled can not collect ssi and just lost everything after spending many hard yrs working my butt off for it. I feel public gardens should be a way of life for all of us in one season it would solve a lot of this .
If you get caught up cut WAY back .I know a lot of working poor with nothing .Turn the lights out one day a week . Rick

Well it seems you got some people to pay that 243.63 electric bill and are now asking people to pay the next's month electric bill -$479.29.
I've seen you post this same story in many different myspace forums, completely off of the original forum topics. There is a myspace profile dedicated to your financial troubles.

http://a249.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01...
As you can see, the original electric bill was paid and you are now asking people to pay the current bill, which is nearly twice the previous month's amount. Can't you do something to cut back your expenses? Are you going to keep trolling forums, asking people for money?
And before anyone gets on me for being harsh, I too am on disability and I live within my means.
I'm also a single mother.

First off what are you doing with 5 kids?If you cant afford them dont have them,you must have known when you started?
Do all your kids have the same father?If not you should have stopped (getting around)if they
do where is he?
Tax-payers are already paying your bills,your begging for free help what are you doing with my tax money?
If your so poor why do you have cable and phone?
You need to go to school get educated find a job you can do(like sitting around on the computer)DUH,and how can you afford a computer and connection?
To make a long story short you are part of Americas problem,just like illegal aliens living off the American system,GET A JOB.

Sure i'm tired of working and I'll work the same job until Im old enough to retire and I have saved(401 k) so the government and tax-payers money will not support me
MyI am planning for my future and it does not include living off others hard work.
I know a challenged person(wheelchair bound motorcycle wreck) he works on small eletronics ,WITH OUT THE HELP OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE.
You live on welfare dont you?
People living off my tax dollars is my business

My sister in law is in a wheel chair. She was a teacher and has four children her Husband died four years ago BUT she did not give up and she took on other responsibilities and makes a very good living.
I raised three children help support my elder mother and father along with my brother that is handicap. Skimp and save for my future and have done a good job at it.
For a while worked three jobs to recover and get ahead. Quite having children so I could give the ones I have a good life. We all have hard times BUT only you can make them better. Work hard and make a home and stay at home except to work. In the end you will recover. I have been out of work, but always found work no matter what I had to do to support my family. It is hard to do but can be done.
