I dont have alot to do these days. Outta money, cars all broke, cant go nowhere. So I sit here and go thru these stories all the time. Relaying the messages to my family as paraphrased as I can. They all think i'm silly--but what else to do. Very little to do these days--have to take it very very easy. So, I have children now from all over the world--i love you all and am very concerned about your prolums and concerns. Just pray for me our money situation will resolve and we can find a new place to live before the constible kicks us out to live on the streets.

I truly love all you guys and have enjoyed my time here.

Joanna

Well, we have like 7 cars but they all need something little, and re-tagged and with that many-- pretty expensive. My duaghters is workin---mysons is workin and we are runnin their wheels off.

Were losing our 4 bedroom in the country cuz we cant pay the rent right now--me and husband have no income right now--all though all the kids are with jobs. But couple of them just satrted. We have 8 adults and 2 childen in this house used to have more--believe it or not.

Its not too bad---but just menas sumthin new is on the way. Maybe relocate again--we do that often. A new state we have never been might be nice.

Is there a reason you cannot work? Can you get on social security? I wish you the best of luck. I know what a stress money can be, luckily I have my parents to help us out. I realize not everyone is as lucky.

I'll be praying for you.

still single, significant other--father of baby??


You are buying house?? Sometimes single not so bad--only have to worry about the kids. My children kept me going for 10 years--before I met my new husband. It was hard but it was nice just me and my angels. They are now 23, 21, 19 new one on the way.


How's the gas prices where you live. It is down to $2.99 a gallon here. It is so expensive to drive right now here in america.

Actually im ssi but my husbands wages were so much I lost it now im just waitin for it to come back on. I went down on the 12 of august and they just now worked my case on sept 9th. I have a couple papers to turn in though. But $579. Will not pay for all of us, but it could help a little. Kids pay a little every 2 weeks. About $300 per month from them. When they all have job and are paying. Which this month would be the first time.

I hope all goes well for everyone. I know money is a high stress factor the problem is too much going out too little coming it makes it hard on everyone. Thats a probelm with the world. The rich getr richer and the barely making it get poorer and down to just before overty and they say you make too much to get anything but you don't amke enough to pay bills. The economy sucks... I just wish they would realize ( the renters, gas companies, electric companies and all other bills) that we work our butts off to show what?
The only thing the poor are blessed with is family!!! And for that i'm richer then bill gates!!! But that doesn't help alot....

Fatfamily Keep Your Chin Up.....
Wow. This is so hard to read...Not because I am better off then any of you ladies but because I was hoping no one was suffering and struggling like I am. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I am 21yrs old and feel as if I have nothing to offer my bundle of joy thats on her way. I feel like I might already be a failure because I really don't have everything to offer her. Money. Ha. I have 100 dollars to my name and thats it. I have bills to pay and things I need to buy. I don't know how I am gonna make it through this. My daughters dad is working right now, he's busting his butt. I am looking so hard for a job and there is just nothing. It was hard enough before the hurricane but now that those people have relocated (god bless their hearts) its twice as hard for all of us. I feel so bad worrying about how I am gonna make ends meet when these poor people have literally had their whole lives washed away. Its so hard to survive now a days and its tough doing it alone. I hate that my daughters dad is doing all the workin it is really killing me. I am not one to take charity because I like to work for mine. I like to be the one helping others. I just pray that everything happens for a reason. I actually feel horrible talking about prayin. Its just recently that ive picked up that phrase... I was raised catholic but I personally have never been real religous. So I gues syou could say I feel guilty asking for prayer and gods help now. I just dont know what else I can do. Hopefully its true that he doesn't give you anymore then you can handle. Fatfamily I don't know where either of the roads ahead of us will lead us or what the outcomes will be but please stay strong, we can stay strong together. Your not silly by the way, your a sweetheart.



Remember stand strong...We'll find a way...We'll be survivors together!!!

I am sorry to make you feel like crying. I just know exactly what it feels like to be in this situation. Its a tough one to get out of. I dont know at the start of each day how I am gonna eat or feed her in my tummy but sure enough I find a way or my lovely daughters dad finds a way for us all. At the end of the day I dont know how I did it or how I will do it again the next day...


My mom has been sucha huge help and I am forever in debt to her as well as to my daughters dad for carrying this weight. I just hope oneday it will be my turn again to be the one that can take care of someone who's struggling and help them out.


I don't know where I find my strength but I feel like im runnin on empty half the time.

I just feel for everyone. I'm in the same boat half the time. I have 4 kids and I worry about how i'm going to feed them dinner when they get home half the time. The 2 younger ones are easy but my older 2. I'm glad I have my family too. My mom and dad have helped alot. Their renting us this house for very cheap, and help where they can but i' don't know how much longer they can do that my mom just got laid off 2 months ago and is still haveing problems finding a job. My husband is a truck driver so i'm alone everyday with them. He just started trucking and its not good money yet half of his check goes to paying for his classes and the rest goes straight to bills, 3 months behind on all the bills in this house, but we are barely surviving. Some how god is seeing that we get just enough to make it and for that i'm thankful. He has blessed me with 4 beautiful girls and a wonderful family. I hate that I want just a pinch more ( not to be in 3 months of debt) but i'm happy. God always provides for us. God bless you and help you too.
