    I Am Tired Of Having No Money

    I don't want to say I am poor...that feels wrong. I have a family and they are well, so I know many would think me lucky. I know I should "count my blessings".  I know there are some worse off than me, I'm often told to think about them. That's supposed to make me feel better. I...

    for food stamps. I am pregnant, both my husband and I work full time jobs and we already have one child in the home. We have no money left after paying all our bills and spending an average of $100 a week on food to feed our family. We don't buy sodas or expensive snacks and...

    Bah it sucks. I sometimes wish

    that I didn't miss out on some of these key life experiences because of financial status. I wish I could go to college, take classes without worrying about how much they are. I envy those who have that privilege.

    I break my back at my job,

    working all hours of the day and night and have very, very little to show for it. I'm not someone who bangs on about "benefit scroungers" but it just doesn't seem fair. I'm fed up with it :(

    Can'T Even Buy Food

    Waiting on a paycheck from my boyfriends new job, still have another week left. 15 bucks to our name and running out of food. :( I have a 2 year old and I'm afraid I won't be able to feed him properly. I just want to crawl in a hole and die.

    Everything will be better in 2 more years(circa 2006). This is the theme of my life. However, 2 years turned into 6. My husband works hard but pays an exorbitant amount of child support. If the child support went to the children I wouldn't complain. The kids never have anything...

    I Did 'all The Right Things' or so I thought. . .

    My father died when I was young, so I knew before I started high school I'd have to pay for most if not all of my college. So I worked hard, got scholarships, and had my first year of college paid. Great right? Then came second year, well I was prepared. I had been working hard...
