I am 22, married and have a 3 1/2 month old child. My husband and I just purchased our home in May 2009. We can pay our bills but we have next to nothing left for gas and groceries and daycare for our son. We have an hour commute to work Monday-Friday. Also the medical bills from having our son are now starting to pile up on top of our regular bills each month.
We don’t qualify for Food Stamps or WIC or anything like that because they say we make too much money to meet the income requirements. Is there anything that we can qualify for to get some help paying our bills? We are desperately searching for some kind of assistance.
The part that concerns me the most is when you say new bills are piling up on top of old ones. While you are just making ends meet right now your statement indicates to me you are going further into debt and that’s a big problem.
I totally hear you about the inability to qualify for benefits and it is a widening canyon more are falling in to. There are many people that make too much for help but need it desperately.
What kind of bills do you have and how much do you owe people? Let me know and I can then work on a Plan B for you.
Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
