PLEASE HELP MY FAMILY

 
What's your take? (click here)

Peg090501  

I am a 40 year old mother of twins,13 year old girls. Their father and I were married for 14 years and separated about 4 months ago. I receive no assistance financially from my twins father at all. I am currently working at a pizza shop about 20 hours a week since I don't have a car it's very convenient that my job is right down the street from my home. I've gotten a second job starting in about a month training to be an assistant for a realtor, who is very successful in my area and also and very old friend from high school. The second job will be exactly what I need to get back on my feet and stay there. The only problem is I'm very scared but its all going to fall apart before I can start making money at my second job to save everything. I make about $100 a week at the pizza shop. My rent is $650 and I pay electric, gas, water, trash, phone. I don't have much family that I've already called in any Christmas favors of Christmas cash to pay for utilities that were about to be disconnected. I've cleaned houses for friends, I've also done data entry and typing for friends just to try to make ends meet so that I don't have to approve my children from their home after watching the break up of our family so recently. I have until Dec 2 to pay on my AEP electric bill or they will disconnect us. I am one month behind my rent payment to my landlord. I have no Christmas presents bought for my children nor do I have any money to buy any. I am scared & alone. My parents are both deceased. I just need a little bit of help to get me through the next two months until my second job begins. I'm trying my hardest! I promise that as soon as I am in a position to be able to... I will pay it all FORWARD!! my friend in real estate says it should only take a few months to train me as an assistant to where I'll be making very good money & can quit my pizza shop job.

Somebody PLEASE HELP ME, help in time of need: I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I

I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I learned that even though life is not always full of what you want, it does not always mean you should quit. I think that my will power for issues surrounding my life have definitely been put into perspective. Once I knew I set my mind to further myself educationally, personally and in a big life changing way, there is just no stopping me from achieving that goal. If I fail than I will just have to try, try, and try again.
On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for my family and myself, I thought it was going to be almost impossible.
I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to become in my future. I have always been excited about the medical field, diabetes particularly, and the medical office is the area which interests me most.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read about myself. I understand also that you have lots of requests that come your way throughout the year not just during the holidays. I am working on myself to make the best of my years to come and I really believe that my new year 2014/15 has something great waiting for me to keep me financially healthy. I will give back without question because I am one of the many out there that have fallen on trying times and looking for someone to just lend a helping hand. I am thankful for any kind of assistance and wish you and yours the best and greatest of faith, strength and love.
RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT-- I am in a very depressed, my anxiety is over the top and just DO NOT feel like me... I don't know what to do-- I have a 45 min. session talking to a therapist- which right now doesn't seem to help me.. I was approved for the gym and I been going but its NOT WORKING.. I went to see my dr. yesterday and still NO GOOD NEWS
I feel there is NO HOPE FOR ME and I don't know what to do, my life is on PAUSE or something its STUCK thought and felt like I was going to be ahead but in reality.. I'm just barely gliding by on tippy toes

MaaaaaaaaN.. what?? what is it?? what did I miss?? what am I missing?? where or what is it that I'm not getting?? UuuuGH, every time I get lost in my thoughts over these questions and NO ANSWERS to suffice what I feel...

Soooooo NOW: its from inside to GIVE UP.. OK- I GIVE UP--- I JUST GIVE UP.......... I won't ever be ahead I won't ever finish school, I won't even get to be healthy enough to even enjoy my life....... Uuuugh

i am a mother of a two year old and am currently single. After a recent separation with the father of my child i am left with multiple months of unpaid bills that i am trying to catch up on. I am currently a full time college student of 3 years now trying to become a registered nurse to overcome poverty. I am also looking for a part time job but in this economy i am having complications with a job that works around my schooling.
Im not one to free load, as i am still struggling. But my family is no better of a financial situation. They try to help as much as possible but it is often not enough to cover my housing, electricity, water, gas, car insurance ect.. With that being said about a month ago my car started giving me trouble, (stalling, randomly kills, check engine light, brakes, power steering fluid leak, no a/c) and i have no money to get a mechanic to check it out. I also cant afford auto insurance. This puts me at risk for trouble with the law enforcement. Without my car i have no way to commute back and forth to school or to look for a job. This leaves me with no way to better myself and become self sufficient. I want to overcome this struggle and give my son a better life. If you could please give me any sort of assistance whether it be support or pointing me in the direction of a charity or organization that may be able to help it would be greatly appreciated.
May God Bless you.

PLEASE HELP MY FAMILY: Hi there...I am also in need of assistance. I would really appreciate anything to help

Hi there...I am also in need of assistance. I would really appreciate anything to help pay our electricity bill. It seems like every week it gets disconnected and I have to pay the whole amount and right now that just seems impossible because we have no income coming in. I feel like everything is just falling apart for us...we struggle for food, with rent and bills. Life is really hard sometimes I wish I could just give up but I look at the beautiful faces of my children and I cry because none of it is their fault. Well anyways I've been strong so far and will continue to be because I know good people with good hearts exists and will help us get through this. Thanks for listening and god bless.
