    No I don't have enough cash - I have enough to survive I guess but I could always use a little more! The price of EVERYTHING has gone up and wages haven't - my food bills have gone through the roof - as have the gas and electric! My cats are now costing me a small fortune and my...

    You know we fell behind on bills and have never been able to catch back up.  We are down to the basic necessities of life.  Bill collector's constantly calling. i don't answer anymore--i don't know what to say--i don't want to lie or make up stories.
