“I’m Right There With Everyone Else”

My name’s Annette and I just got told that in two weeks, my job will go from 40 hours a week to 10. On top of that, I’m losing all my benefits. Which means I have no health insurance to cover my lupus.

My husband and I entered a debt management program several months ago that seems to be helping us out some. We live in a poverty stricken area of Southern Indiana. The average income per family here is only 25k a year. There is no work here. We’ve considered trying to sell our house and move, but right now, there’s 9 houses in our neighborhood that have either been abandoned or are up for sale. We are stuck where we are and desperately need help.

There will be no gifts, no brightly wrapped packages in our home this year. We’re giving ourselves the gift of paying our electric bill on time, and keeping our internet service one more month so I can keep job hunting.

The economy stinks, I’m glad gas prices are down, for what little good that does. If you can’t get a job to make the money, then you can’t put the gas in the vehicle.
