Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I'm homeless with 3 kids.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My husband and I were having marital problems and he moved out,
and the kids and I got evicted from the apartment, so we went and stayed at my parents.
Two weeks ago is when the kids and I started living with my parents.
Well my husband and I are trying to work things out and go to counseling,
and my parents aren't happy about that. They accused me of leaching off of them
and being a tool of the devil. So basically we are getting kicked out.
We have no where to go and I can't stay with my husband and his parents
because his parents hate me. What can we do? There are no local shelters
in this area and I don't have any friends in this area either.

 

Facts :

I am able to get to the internet, because my parents have it at their home.
My husband was laid off of his job and yes, has been looking.
I am on strict bed rest. I have nurses that come to me.
I have to take care of my own children though because I do not get any help from family.
I am not in the hospital because I have in home health.
I live in a rual town.
The closest shelter is indeed 50+ miles away, and I have no money, thus I cannot get there.
Many churches I have called have a cut off of funds that they can assist people with. I unfortunately
didn't make it in time.
My husband and I are in counseling, and they come to me with in home health.
Are we done trying to poke holes in my situation? I am just trying to find a place to safely
take my kids.
I am not asking for money, or pity, just some info that any one can think of.
I have never been in this situation before, nor really needed help, so I've never gotten welfare,
or anything like that. I guess times have changed though.

I am sure you knew how your parents would feel if you tried to reconcile with him and also knew he wasn't a living option. So this is on you. Why can't you two just get an apt together again?

He sounds like a winner! *rolls eyes*

No job for either of you, and you're pregnant?! Wow!! Where do I find one of these men? They sound like gods gift to women! Seriously; he ripped apart your home and has no job... Sounds like a fucking loser. Just sayin.

I am pregnant with our last child and not able to work due to complications in the pregnancy, and he lost his job because he was laid off. I'm kind of screwed both ways. And yes, I'm working it out with the man who "tore apart my house", but, some people change. We have both been going to counseling together and working out our problems. At the moment I have phone and internet because I am AT my parents house.

How are you able to attend counseling while on "strict bedrest" thats preventing you from taking care of your living needs?

I live in Ohio. And I'm on bed rest because everytime I do anything and I do mean anything, I go into labor. My placenta is also seperating from my uterus little by little. Thanks guys for suggesting some places I should go. Wow, I am really seeing the Christ like spirit in some of you.

You'd be in the hospital, not out doing counseling

I use WiFi wherever I am. No phone or internet bill, EVER. So, please, let's try not to judge.

Internet costs money...whether its on the phone or on a computer.  Priorities.

call the churches and maybe the city.  They may have emergency housing available for you.
