So we won't have a thanksgiving dinner. My 4 kids won't have a christmas. Dh is out of work due to injury. No money to pay bills or buy food. I'm waiting to hear from the ssdi or ssi whatever you call it. I hate my life. I want to fall off the face of the earth.(there's more to why I want to fall off the face of the earth) but who cares.

Try food banks or churches. I would be getting my but to welfare. When my boyfriend and I both lost our jobs I applied that day for food stamps and as soon as they had all the info they needed we had the money for food in about a week. there are alot of places that are willing to look you just have to look. I am sorry if this sounds mean but instead of posting your problems up here i would be searcing for every place that could help me and getting in contact with them also if you can work than do that there are alot of places hiring for seasonal work I have worked like 80+hrs a week to support my self and my son when I was a single mother. You just do what you have to do. I am not trying to be mean i have been in some pretty bad situations. Homeless with both of my children at one point or another but I did everything I possibly could to get out of the situation to make sure I could support them.

And why not post here?  I have seen several of these posts end up with "I can send you such and such"... 

Some people get burned - some people get helped...
