i am a senior citizen, and am a cancer patient. we are struggling, gas is almost unatainable, and food is getting very expensive, in fact there are times we are hungry, we do not have small children any longer, but my husband is the only one that can work at this time, and the money is not enough. Medical bills are very high due to my cancer, and we can only afford to drive once or twice a week to doctors, and to the store. the gas has to be saved for work. What can our government do better to help so many people that are hurting now. Do they really even care?
be alive next year we have no money for christmas. We would like
help to make a nice dinner for him the year. Please help if you can .
We are now down to 4 eggs and 3 slices of bread for breakfast, guess i'll pass so they can eat.
Every moment i get more worried.

I am writing this letter for some kind of help for the people out of work or ones that are just not making enough to survive. My daughter works very hard cleaning for a living. She has no medical insurance of any kind. She only makes $1,300.00 a month and that is not clear. She had a room mate sharing the expenses but the person took off leaving her with a $900.00 electric bill and rent payment. She tried to get food stamps and they said because of her wages they could only give her $16.00 a month for food. What could anyone buy with that? Her front tooth broke off and she is walking around with that. She is so embarrassed about that. What does a person have to do, quit their job and have children out of wed lock to get help in this country. She is trying so hard and works every day but can't live on those wages. Her electric is going to be shut off. Social Services would not help her with this either. She pays $650.00 for a small apartment and she has to pay her car insurance, which she only can afford collision. I can't help her because I retired due to an accident and my husband lost his job 2 yrs ago and can't find another. He was making 6 figures and now only get social security. We were not financially ready to retire yet. So we are struggling also. What is happening to our country? Someone better do something or I am afraid of what may happen to our people. We can only take so much. GET US BACK TO WORK ,LOWER THE GAS PRICES OR FIND A WAY TO HELP US. NOT THE ONES THAT DON'T HAVE CITIZENSHIP OR WE WILL VOTE ALL OF YOU OUT OF OFFICE. PETITIONS ARE GOING OUT. (There are much more out of work than what is being reported. All the people not collecting unemployment are not being counted. They are forgotten ones.)
I joined last night...( depresandown ) but I forgot to change my password and basically was locked out of my original page so I had to create a new one.. and this is it..
Hi, I don't know where to begin, It seems as things started to spiral downward when my husband got medically terminated from his position from a highly well know company. He's had four surgeries, but nothing seem to help he's at the point where he can't walk or stand for periods of time...His disablity claim is depleted, and he's tried to recieve help from the state disability and he keeps on getting denied. He can't claim unemployment cause he wasn't fired or laid off, it was a medical termination.. I'm a mother of two young children, currently looking for a jobs. I've applied for various positions and no one offering to hire me, is it because I was a stay at home for seven years? I really don't know, I know times are very tough right now..but I'm trying to do all the right things. We've alway paid rent on time except for this month, we were late 17 days, and my landlord slaps up with a 3 day notice. being late $550.00 in which we can't pay.. We have no money in our bank accounts, no jobs and now facing eviction. My children are scared that they will not have no where to live.. I have no family both of my parents pass on due to cancer, I have one brother who lives in Japan but he is facing diffculties due to the recent disaster a 9.0 magnetude earthquake and Tsunami.. My husband has no immediate family in this area, and they are not willing to help. I feel so helpless and scared and I don't know what to do. We tried to apply for section 8 but in our county, there is closure and is not accepting applications and was told by the clerk that there is an 10 year waiting list. I have a car that is getting ready to get repossed cause I haven't been able to pay my car payments. I haven't been able to pay for gas or electric in the past 3 months, they are gonna be shutting if off anyday now. My phone bill is late cause I haven't been able to pay that in 3 month as well. I pray everyday that there will be a miracle..but that hasn't happened for me yet.. and because of the fact that we have no money my daughter has become anemic because of her poor diet. I don't know what to do... I'm scared that because we are facing eviction and with a prior bankrupty that I will not be able to find a place to live.. I surely can't pay for any legal fees.. Any suggestion or help is recommended.. Please someone help me.. I'm so down and depressed, I don't know what to do.. my husband is no help either, he's in the same boat as I am...it's affecting my children as well. My landlord is not willing to help us out at all, we even offered to pay the late charges in a different month when we do get money.. they want us out immediately.
