I just don't know how to make it work, how to manage to have enough money to pay all my bills. I tried to get food stamps and they said i was over their limit. I only bring home about $1500/month after taxes, and if and when I get child support, that's another $590. I just don't know how to pay rent, electricity, gas, phone, and groceries on that. Not to mention all the other expenses that come up. I add it up a million times and it just doesn't work. Or it works on paper, if no other things come up, but something always comes up. I'll have it all figured out, and think I am doing good, then suddenly my dd will need something for a school project, or she needs new clothes or shoes, or one of us will get sick, and then suddenly I have to spend extra money and then everything gets messed up and I no longer have enough for my bills. Right now, I have no money to pay rent. I will probably not even see my paycheck this week bc my checking account is so overdrawn. I have no money for groceries. Electricity bill is coming up soon. I never have enough for gas for the whole week. I just don't know how to do it anymore, and I am so tired of struggling all the time.
