I have no one else to turn to & really needing to vent. I have 2 beautfiul daughters & I'm working full time. I'm separated from my ex, divorce is in process. My soon to be Ex doesn't pay anything to help out. My Ex had gotten me fired from my last job, I had been there for 9yrs. Now, I'm working full time in another city. I had to move to another city, our house was forclosed on. I was finally able to get my daughter's in day care, but I'm not sure how much longer I can keep them there. I can't afford to pay it every week. I just checked my bank act....I have $20 until my next pay day in 2 weeks. & I still have to some how pay day care for this week & next, & I'm behind on it already because I was only able to pay partial payments the last 2 weeks. They told me last week that if I kept it up, they wouldn't be able to keep the girls there. I've only been able to pay the main bills....rent & utilites. Which all of my utilities are 2 months past due already. It seems like all I've paid for the past 2 monthes are day care & fuel to get back & forth to work & rent.
I've been racking my brain on ways to come up to get by. I've tried selling stuff, but haven't had much luck. I've thought about a part time job, but I can't afford any more babysitting costs. How do you get by on less than nothing??? I know there are others out there who have it worse off than I. I know I shouldn't complain, but what do you do??? I feel so helpless. I'm so tired of this drowning feeling.
I receive food stamps, day care assist, & WIC. They are cutting my food stamps back in August by half...almost $200. & the day care assist covers $5/day/child...it helps, but I still have to pay the $150/week. I plan on going in & appling for TANF...does anyone have info on that? & does anyone know of any programs for school supplies & such???
