You no I agree with alot of what you said but its the way you say it it may be just me but you sound as if you are bitter and mad that people ask for help and I would like you to no that where I live the homeless shelters have waiting lists and god teaches us to help others and me being in the mess I am in still share what I have with those in my area who have even less and I at any min can be homeless. But I guess thats my fault for getting hurt on my job and being permanently injured . Its my fault its taking our wonderful government over six years of me fighting them to get the social security disability that I worked for and paid into all my life. I deserve to loose what I have left and become homeless again .The first two years after getting hurt wasnt enough. You are telling people to loose their bad habits I dont drink or smoke nor do drugs. I have not been out to eat for as long as I can remember and as far as where someone can charge a cell phone at whose eletric is shut off the library is one place. And some people has family who honestly dont give a crap not everyone comes from a family that is loving and caring. My family is all gone and my brother is lost in his world and drinks. As I have said before dont be so judgemental of everyone because everyones story and situation is different. If you dont want to help dont if you do then do so with a kind giving and happy heart. God says to feed the hungry and take care of the widows. He dose not ask you to judge them and as far as the lady with the iphone sprint has iphones for 99 dollars with a two year contract so even expensive phones can be gotten for cheap with signed contracts any one who owns a cell phone knows this. Quit judgeing people thats gods job not yours its good and smart to verify stuff but just dont sound so bitter about the people who ask for help. Someday you may be the one on here asking for help. Hope you dont take offense at this I am soory if you do but your post sounds bitter to me.

Are you willing to volunteer for 5 hours at a local shelter in exchange for $50? I will not give you cash, but will pay $50 towards a legitimate bill you owe, directly. (No personal debts, but actual needs).

I never said anyone was pushing me away. I said they couldn't help me. Not everyone is in a position to help others.

Nobody is blaming you. As you rightly said, "it is a time to learn from your past to better manage your future". Wise people have said that the first step to recovery is to face reality. If there are two ex-fathers, and your bosses and relatives and in-laws who are pushing you away, then there is something you should be seeing. We do not know what it is - perhaps you should pray and ask God to show it to you.

Sadly he lives only 15 miles away but still chooses not to be in the girls lives. Thats ok it sounds like my grandmother has changing her mind about helping!

Then you see, you already know the answer as to why she won't help.
Usually, us women already know the answer.

Where is the father of your other kids? Can he or his family help?

no and yes that is part of it. It is also because my mother in law can not handle things like this well and wants little to nothing to do with it.

wow, as you said, you do not know me. As I stated before my ex abused me and his mother took his side. I am not sure why you think I have problems getting along with people. If it is because I have a voice and know how to advocate for my family, I am not sorry. It seems to me you are just looking to push blame on me no matter what. Thank you for sharing your opinions with me. Just remember that there was only one perfect person to ever walk the earth. Next time you should stop and think that crisis is not a time to blame, it is a time to learn from your past to better manage your future.

she may not see this as you just replied to me - not her post. If you delete it and copy paste it to reply to her post, she will see it.

We do not know you personally so cannot say anything for sure. Sorry to be blunt; it does look like you have problems getting along with people and you are not facing up to what the issue is with *you*. I am sure they have problems too. However, if you go to church, then ask the pastor to counsel you on your real problems. Otherwise ask your ex-husbands or ex-supervisors for feedback without arguing with them.

Yes to both questions and I think part of it is my ex and his mother are not excepting of my other 2 kids.

They may have some issues against you.
You never know what their son has told them. And, we know some men do lie.
When we get a certain age & start ailing in our bodies, many times children gets on their nerves.
Have they helped you in the past?
Have you helped them in the past?

The best way to find out why they won't help is to simple ask them?

I wish you the best.

Information about going back to school tuition-free for a healthcare career, here is the info in case anyone is interested. Please forward to anyone who might benefit.
The scholarships are from the Government.

Nurse practitioner
Certified nurse-midwife
Physician assistant
Medicine (MD or DO)
Dentistry (DDS or DMD)

http://nhsc.hrsa.gov/scho...

"The NHSC scholarship is a competitive program that pays tuition, fees and provides a living stipend to students enrolled in accredited medical (MD or DO), dental, nurse practitioner, certified nurse midwife and physician assistant training. Upon graduation, scholarship recipients work as primary health care clinicians between two and four years in a community-based site in a high-need Health Professional Shortage Area that has applied to and been approved by the NHSC as a service site. Scholars in service earn a competitive salary paid by the employing site. Recovery Act funding enabled the NHSC to make nearly 250 new scholarship awards between 2009 and 2011. (note there are a lot more than 250 scholarships)"

I like this posting its the truth cause there are real people out here that have nobody and noone in desperate times, such as myself. Example: I was at the grocery store i am calculating all my items so i know i wouldnt go over, well so this laday in front of me its her turn to pay has a full basket of items and time to pay she is caring a ipone, coach purse,coach wallet to match the purse,and coach shoes that are matching ,gold rings, and the whole nine yards of a match and very expensive alphet. This woman pulls out a food stamp card to purchase her basket full of groceries. I was done paying walking home with a few of my groceries seen her in a escalade(cadillac), Must be nice I say to myself.
How do these people do it? I am literally considered a homeless woman if I didnt have my daughter and her husband. I am carless and this is the main reason why I am struggling and getting out of a relationship from a heroine addict of 6 years, once upon a time i was a homeowner and money in my pocket and one to help others in time of need. I am just trying to save up whatever i can to buy a car and start school and back to working. I do believe in the power of prayer,Amen.

Why is it so hard for you to believe that someone could be in a situation like mine? When I am questioned like this, as I have been by many lately, it makes me feel worthless and like a failure. I am doing everything in my power to keep my family together. I refuse to do anything illegal and it seems like that is all that is left
