I can't believe I am writing this. I don't know what else to do. My husband and I both work long hours each on opposing schedules so we can keep our two boys ( 3 & 5 years old), out of Daycare. Our older son now goes to Kindergarten. We are living paycheck to paycheck. We sometimes don't even have enough to get by on each week. I have to feed my entire family on hotdogs and bolona because after paying our monthly living expenses & trying to keep our creditors happy. I usually only have about $20 per week for food.
I used to work as a Pizza Delivery Driver but as the gas started skyrocketing, people stopped tipping. I started putting i more hours and I still came home with less than half of what I usually made before gas went up. After I deducted my gas, oil and maintenence most weeks I was barely making anything after working 45+ hours & driving over 300 miles delivering pizza. It was acually costing us more for me to keep the job so I had to leave. We put ourselves on a very tight budget. Got ride of everything that was not necessay, I mean everything, but we still are just scraping by.
Christmas is just around the corner & I can barely feed my children. I have no idea how I am going to be able to get them anything for Christmas. Our 5 year old has severe Asthma & we spend alot of time at the Doctors & Pharmacy with him. Even with our insurance we spend about $300 a month just on Dr & Rx co-pays.
When I say we are barely scraping by I mean it. We live in a tiny 2 bedroom mobile home that is 618 sq. feet. We have had it up fpr sale for about 6 months now. If we can sell it we can pay off some of our debts & rent a small apt.
If anyone out there could help us it will be greatly appreciated. Even just a few dollars. At this point every dolloar makes a difference for my boys. Thank you for your time and your thoughts and prayers for my family.
