I either pay rent or pay my bills?

Ugh! So now I'm in a struggle.
(I went for a fair hearing last month, it was for FS but something worst happened.)
Last Friday, I got a letter from the landlord saying "hey. Where's the rent?" so I called welfare today & the woman said "oh your case is closed." me: "what?! What happen?!"
Lady: "oh, we don't have to contact you not mail you any letter."
Me: "it was for FS! Why was it cut off?"
Lady: "b/c welfare 'won' the fair hearing."
(deep sigh)

So I now have to next month pay all my rent & put my chances on not paying my other bills. :(

(sigh)
Sorry all.

Sorry! :( I think I'd pay my rent first. At least you would have a place to stay. Then cut what you can and get rid of them. Then start paying electric bills and that sort of thing. Good luck!

 Pay your rent. That a necessity. Internet is not. Go to the library for what has to be done.
