Help me give my children a christmas, down on my luck this year

I don't know how old your children are, but most communities have organizations that provide christmas for underpriviliged children.  They can help with winter heating costs and sometimes rent as well.

My husband had a massive heart attack and I lost my job due to missed days with him in icu (i had not been employed long enough for family leave)  we are not going to be able to have christmas at all .  My kids are teenagers however and know what is going on I feel bad, but we will do something out of income tax.  I feel terrible, but we have to keep the rent paid.
Hope things work out for your family

well , looks like there will be no money for christmas this year.  my husband had a massive heart attack and is in stage 3 heart failure.  the good thing is that his condition has stabilized somewhat, however with the missed income we will be unable to provide christmas for our children,  this is the hardest thing for my husband to deal with because he is a good dad and loves his children very much and has always worked hard to take care of all of us.

if there is anyone out there who could help at all (i have 2 children in college and the younger 2 are in high-school) it would be appreciated more than you will ever know.  all my youngest has asked for is clothes( his dad was in the cardiac icu in august so he did not get anything new to start school in) even if you have some used items (movies,etc)  My middle son loves to hunt (he shot 2 deer this season thankfully, this will ensure that we have meat for part of the winter at least)  My daughter is in college and is in desperate need of jeans, and shirts.  My oldest son is in his first year of college and needs snow boots, and jeans and pajama pants.

all 3 boys could use coveralls and gloves.  I do not need anything, but my husband could use some pajama pants and some books to read since this helps him pass the time and take his mind off of things.  Thank-you and god bless

Another Abscessed Tooth!

I am in so much pain I really don't think I can stand it.  I have taken everything I have been able to get my hands on, including Percocet and Darvocet and I have been on antibiotics for 3 days now and there is no relief. I went to the discounted dental clinic this morning and waited in line outside until the place opened.  They usually take the first 5 people who get there before they open for emergencies like the one I am experiencing but today, they could only take 3 people and I was the 4th person in line because I got lost on the way to the clinic.  I am in so much pain that I really don't know how I am going to get through the day.  If I thought I could actually withstand the pain, I would attempt to pull this tooth myself.  I know that is not a smart thing to do, but anyone who has experienced this kind of pain, knows how I'm feeling.

I have read all of the messages that people have left me and my heart goes out to all of you.  I have not found a remedy for not being able to afford dental care and I am so tired of waking up to pain and not being able to eat that I really just don't know how to cope anymore. 

 I think about all that this President is trying to do to get all of us that are uninsured and not able to afford medical coverage and I wonder if anyone is thinking about how important dental health is to all of us.  I would love to have medical care, but honestly, I don't ever remember being in this much pain for anything that has ever been wrong with me that a doctor can treat.  I don't even remember the pain of childbirth being this painful, and it definietly didn't last this long.  

So, although I have no answers for anyone or any ideas to help me or anyone else, I want you all to know that I do read these posts and if I can figure out anything that can help me or anyone else, I will be sure to post it.  In the mean time, I just hope that tomorrow when I go stand in line at the discounted dental clinic, that I am on of the people they take to treat.  Otherwise, I really don't know how I am going to survive this pain.  As you all know, when you have an abscessed tooth, you can't eat and it is even difficult to drink fluids.  God be with us all.  Hopefully, someone will come to our rescue with a solution for our dental problems.  I'm still searching and hopeful, even though I am in more pain that I ever imagined possible.  Hang in there everyone.  I'm going to try and figure something out for all of us.  There has to be a solution to this problem.  There are too many of us out there that can not get help.  And, the problems we are all having with are teeth, will eventually become a medical problem if we die from infection.  The whole thing is just sad.  I care about you all and hope someone will care about us too.  

 

Peace,

Help me give my children a christmas, down on my luck this year

I just took a 13 yea old out of foster care. The State pays me nothing because I am not a licensed foster parent. The child has been physically, emotionally, sexually, and verbally abused and scarred. i am a single mother, 32, with my own 13, 11, and 10 year old children. I was in a disabling auto accident in 2004 and have no income except fo $697 pe month child support. We have no Christmas plans for gifts, but this year the children are learning the true meaning of Christmas. We are making each other costless gifts like: slide shows of memories, letters to each other saying what we love most about each family member, and we are doing something special for the 12 days before Christmas (drive to see other's Christmas lights, visiting Public Holiday displays, rewraping personal belongings and giving to each other the things another family member often asks to use or borrow, etc...). The light at the end of the tunnel is to visit the toys fo tots web site and request toys BEFORE Dec. 13th. Good luck. If anyone can help us with our electic bill this month it would be special to us.

Help me give my children a christmas, down on my luck this year

Hi, I am a single mother of 2 girls, just divorced in March of this year. Recently, my job at Wal-Mart ended after 15 long years.  My unemplyment was denied, I am appealing, I don't get any child support on my oldest but have filed for it.  My rent and household bills are about $950.00.  All I have coming in is $266.00 in child support for the second child. I have got an appointment for food stamps on Mon. and just went to 2 interviews on this past Mon.  I am scared to death that I will not be able to do Santa Claus for my girls, cause' every bit of money I have or will have is got to go to rent, electricity and water.  I need help and have never had to ask before, I'm ashamed to ask outsiders to do for me and my girls but seems I have no choice and time is running out, please e-mail me if you can help in any way, thanks!!

I need free dental work

 

 

I am a 52 year old female that is living on $9.00 per hour with no insurance of any kind.  I have not been able to afford to go to a dentist for several years now and I am in danger of losing enough teeth that I won't be able to eat.  I don't want to lose my teeth and have spent a lot of years and money trying to take care of them.  I have had my wisdom teeth pulled and am in danger of losing the only other teeth I can use to chew food. The back teeth on both sides of my mouth in the bottom of my mouth have broken apart.  They had so much filling in them and now they are just pieces left.  I can not chew anything for fear of breaking them even more and being in constant pain.  I just need to have the massive fillings put back in my mouth for the time being.  I can not afford to have crowns at this time and I just want to be able to keep the teeth.  Can you please help me.
