Life Sucks

I worked for over 20 years and was very independent. Had 2 kids and life seemed to be wonderful until that fateful day when a truck ran into the back of my car. I thought my life would continue on after that but after my back surgery I was worse off then ever. My youngest son died in 2008 of a heart attack and my oldest still doesn't seem to have his life on track.

I receive money from SSD but it just barely pays for me to continue to have a roof over my head. I have applied for assistance but I am told I don't qualify so I have to decide whether to buy food or other things.

When I was robbed at a store a few months ago it made me even more afraid of life. What is going on? I now when I die I will be alone but I didn't expect it so early.

Can some one help? I don't eat for days on end because I don't have the money. I live from paycheck to paycheck, which is month to month, just so I can have a roof over my head. I am so afraid to go out of my house after the robbery that I have a hard time going to the store or any where.

Please help.

Hello, I came across your story and I too am in a similar situation. When it comes to either eating or paying for items one needs. I would suggest to find a local food bank(s) around your area. And knowing when, where and what time they start distributing food.The best way of searching, is on the internet and giving them calls. Also, depending in the state you reside in there are programs in which they can help you.Either a payment on a utility bill. To even giving free phones. You just need to be informed of the programs out there. And ask questions! I hope I was of help to you.
