I'm a horrible person, feeling guilty.

My husband lost his job several weeks ago. We were living paycheck to paycheck. I found a full time job making less money and have worked there for two weeks. I will get my first paycheck on Friday but we haven't had much food. We have three kids.
I applied for food stamps but didn't have dh's paystubs because we don't feet mail delivered to our house and hadn't gotten a p.o box so i was denied. I called the food pantry in our small town but they didn't have any food.
Last night Dh went through the gas station garbage and found pizza and fries that they threw out at the end of the night. Today the kids were complaining they were hungry and all i had was spaghetti noodles which they have been eating for three days now. I wrote a bad check at the gas station to buy bread milk and hot dogs. I do plan on paying it. My kids are so happy but i feel so guilty.

I'm so sorry. Things will get better as long as you make the effort. It will be a bit easier once you get paid. Just keep pushing and doing what you need to do for your family. Good luck.

I'm too ashamed to tell anyone in real life. Thank you for reading.

I am so sorry momma. it is rough times these days. I know that it doesnt feel good to do but often people on craigslist are really helpful in these situations. It wouldnt hurt to post an ad and just ask for a few basics.
