Losing it  

About Losing it

I'm a single mother of 3. 2 girls, 6 & 7 ; 1 son, 10. I am unemployeed. I have a felony on my record from when I was 17 yrs old. It's been so hard to find a good job. I am also suffering from depression. I can't sleep at night but can barely get out of bed. I cry eveyday for nothing & everything. I'm not very educated. My son has a learning disability & I am no help to him when it comes to helping him with his homework. He's in danger of having to repeat the 5th grade. He's so upset about that. He's constantly teased & picked on. He has a online tutor but our computer is so old it runs sooooooo slow & is about to crash. He can never finish his lessons & he gets so frustrated. We live off of $262/mo in child support. We're on section 8 & because I'm not working they pay our rent but our utilities are constantly disconnected. My son's father hasn't been in his life since he was 3yrs old & my daughters father is in prison. Me & my youngest daughter have asthma & are always sick. I have no money at all for Christmas. I get so heart broken every time one of my kids tell me something they want for Christmas. they're such good kids & deserve evrything they want & need. I just can't provide it. I feel like a bad mother. I have thoughts of suicide EVERYDAY!!!! But everytime I think of taking my own life I think of my kids finding me dead & they don't deserve that. They already don't have thier fathers what would they do without a mother too!?! And I do love them dearly. I couldn't image life without them. They are the only reason I DO get out of bed. I just wish I could snap out of this depression, get a good job & give them a good life. They deserve that. But I feel so helpless, hopeless, lonely, sad, mad, stupid, unstable, awful & like a terrible parent. I need help. I feel I'm losing it. Please someone help me & MY KIDS!!!

extreme dental pain....need teeth pulled out due to not affording root canals

Is there any place in Dallas, Texas besides Baylor School of Dentistry that can immediately help with my dental pain.  I went to Baylor School of Dentistry but they only take a certain amount of patients in one morning and then screen you to see if they will accept you or not.  Too long of a process and I am in dier need of a dentist that charges hardly anything.  I just want 3 teeth pulled out.  That is it. 

Can you please help.

Thank you and God Bless!

Financial Emergency

Hello, I am Timothy A. Brown, I prefer being called Tim.
I am a fulltime student on a very limited low income, because I am also the sole caretaker for my elderly parents who both have serious health problems, and in my efforts to help them with their financial and health problems, I now have financial problems. I myself am disabled because of serious heart problems that with a congenital heart defect that I was born with an aorta heart valve that had only two leaflets, and I have been very ill for the past four years because the aorta valve defect had become very severe, which resulted in one major heart attack and several silent heart attacks that my cardiologist diagnosed about three years by performing an angioplasty. last year in 2005 my heart surgeon performed open heart surgery to replace the severely damaged aorta valve because of severe aortic regurgitation and stenosis. So my heart valve was replaced with a mechanical heart valve. However, I am on a long course of health recovery that still results in my being disabled, and trying to finish my college education through Northern Arizona University through their internet classes and being the sole caretaker for my parents who live on a very low income and are having serious financial difficulties, and I also receive a very low monthly income of social security supplemental benefits that I have used solely to help my parents financially. However, I have been having serious financial problems myself trying to help my parents by myself, and my sister and her husband are unable to help me and friends are unable to help us.
My father has had a severe stroke that resulted in most of his brain damage from severe bleeding insideof his skull, and he has been declining a great deal because of the stroke damage. My mother has her own serious health issues that have resulted in her becoming physically disabled.
I lot has happened to my mother, father, and myself that has caused us to have financial problems that have become serious, and threaten the health and wellbeing of my parents and myself.
I have never asked for any help from others because I have always been responsible to take care of living expenses for myself and my parents. But I am "backed-up against a wall" unable to find any help and I along with my parents very low income are not able to work this on my own because I have been their sole provider and caretaker for over five years.
So I am asking for any kind of help and assistance that anyone can provide. I have always been generous to help others anyway that I could in the past, and I continue to help others through moral support, and I do my best to freely volunteer to help family, friends and others, even though I cannot do much physically to help them.
If anyone can help us, it will be greatly appreciated!
I really will appeciate your assistance during this time of crisis!
Thank You for yor understanding, Tim Brown. You can send contributions to my mailing address below, and I will directly pay the emergency bills myself.

Miss Carolyn  

I desperately need funding for school!

I am a single mom on welfare in CA. I am currently enrolled at a massage school (California Holistic Institute). I need tuition and living expenses for myself and toddler. The amount for tuition is ~ $5,000 for the 200 hour program and the 550 hour massage therapist program (necessary to take the National Certification exam).

I know that women count as a minority, and we are considered "very low income" so maybe that will be helpful?

If anyone knows ANY grant that I could apply for, I would really, really appreciate dropping me a line with that info!

Kind regards,
Miss Carolyn

Single mom, with a toddler. Currently on welfare (less than $600/month for entire family). Must participate in welfare-to-work and desperately need to get financial aid for tuition! I am unable to determine if the school I am attending is 'accredited' (California Holistic Institute) which is certainly slowing me down.

I am a very low income woman in need of dental care

Dear Sir or Madam;

I am a 36 year old woman who has been unemployed since February 2003 and am not receiving income of any kind at this time.  I live with my father in Linn County, Oregon; he is seventy years old and currently receiving treatment for Lymphoma and cancer in his liver and in or around his stomach. 

I have severe health problems and am currently applying for Social Security, although I sincerely hope to be able to return to working as soon as possible.  In the meantime, I am dealing with long term dental problems and have no dental insurance.  As a child I did not receive proper dental care or education and as an adult I have never been able to afford the work necessary to repair my teeth.  As a reult, many of my teeth are missing, decaying or broken off to the gumline, leaving the nerve exposed; it is quite painful.

I have only recently heard that there may be programs or grants available to people in nee of dental treatment, so I am doing my best to see if anything is available to me. 

Thank you for your kind attention.

Sincerely,

Laura Reynen
