I work full time. DH and I have 5 kids. He and his doctors lost a court case against Workmans Compensation. He has been getting it for 5 years but has now been cut off. I hate hate hate hate that I can't provide for MY kids. I feel like a shitty parent and it is just an awful feeling. I feel like i dont even deserve my kids if I cant afford to meet their basic need like FOOD! My kids are my life and I would and do everything for them. They have clothes, heat, water, etc and I always borrow money or get food from my family for them. They have never gone hungry. I still feel like shit, though. DH is looking for a job but with no college education and with him having limitations due to his injury it is slim pickings. : (
