downandepressed  

going thru financial hardship and don't know what to do...( locked out of origal profile account)

I joined last night...( depresandown ) but I forgot to change my password and basically was locked out of my original page so I had to create a new one.. and this is it..



Hi, I don't know where to begin, It seems as things started to spiral downward when my husband got medically terminated from his position from a highly well know company. He's had four surgeries, but nothing seem to help he's at the point where he can't walk or stand for periods of time...His disablity claim is depleted, and he's tried to recieve help from the state disability and he keeps on getting denied. He can't claim unemployment cause he wasn't fired or laid off, it was a medical termination.. I'm a mother of two young children, currently looking for a jobs. I've applied for various positions and no one offering to hire me, is it because I was a stay at home for seven years? I really don't know, I know times are very tough right now..but I'm trying to do all the right things. We've alway paid rent on time except for this month, we were late 17 days, and my landlord slaps up with a 3 day notice. being late $550.00 in which we can't pay.. We have no money in our bank accounts, no jobs and now facing eviction. My children are scared that they will not have no where to live.. I have no family both of my parents pass on due to cancer, I have one brother who lives in Japan but he is facing diffculties due to the recent disaster a 9.0 magnetude earthquake and Tsunami.. My husband has no immediate family in this area, and they are not willing to help. I feel so helpless and scared and I don't know what to do. We tried to apply for section 8 but in our county, there is closure and is not accepting applications and was told by the clerk that there is an 10 year waiting list. I have a car that is getting ready to get repossed cause I haven't been able to pay my car payments. I haven't been able to pay for gas or electric in the past 3 months, they are gonna be shutting if off anyday now. My phone bill is late cause I haven't been able to pay that in 3 month as well. I pray everyday that there will be a miracle..but that hasn't happened for me yet.. and because of the fact that we have no money my daughter has become anemic because of her poor diet. I don't know what to do... I'm scared that because we are facing eviction and with a prior bankrupty that I will not be able to find a place to live.. I surely can't pay for any legal fees.. Any suggestion or help is recommended.. Please someone help me.. I'm so down and depressed, I don't know what to do.. my husband is no help either, he's in the same boat as I am...it's affecting my children as well. My landlord is not willing to help us out at all, we even offered to pay the late charges in a different month when we do get money.. they want us out immediately.

I work 12 hours weekly, my fiance is an ex-con and has been fighting hard to get a job, but no such luck. He is also attending drug court and has been clean for 7 months. We are getting evicted tomorrow and have no place to go. It is extremely cold out there, but most landlords don't care about anything, but their money. Luckily, a church helped with our electric, but cannot pay rent. We are struggling with even being able to keep food.

Hi .. I am a 22 year old mom of a 2 year old little girl. We are currently living alone, as her father was recently incarcerated. I am also about 8 months pregnant with my second daughter, due in August. I found out yesterday that I am being evicted. I have been trying to find a job for months, but as soon as the issue of my pregnancy comes into play, I am basically dropped on the spot.  I have applied for cash assistance, but it's just not enough to pay the bills .. since my babies' father's conviction, we have accumulated over $2500 just in rent. I am a full-time student at Mildred Elley, going for my certificate in Accounting to try to get a good job for my daughters, but I'm beginning to lose hope. Section 8 lists are closed, and I can't apply until November, and I have a house full of stuff - furniture, baby things, EVERYTHING ... that I'm going to have to find a place for. 

I moved to Massachusetts about 4 years ago, when I had just turned 19, and ended up homeless in a shelter within my first 2 months here. I fell flat on my face, and it took me all this time to straighten myself out, to get a decent apartment and furnish it with the things that my family and I needed. During my time of need, I didn't ask anyone for anything. I stayed in a shelter until I found a job, and I 've been on my own ever since. But now I have a 2 year old little girl depending on me, and another on the way... I've never felt this hopeless in my life. 

I hate asking for help, but I would appreciate any information you may have that could help me figure this whole mess out.

My email is cbcarter85@yahoo.com .... please email me with any suggestions.

Thank you.

WE ARE IN NEED OF A HELPING HAND

RECENTLY, I WAS ON LEAVE WITHOUT PAY FROM MY EMPLOYMENT.  THIS CAUSED ME TO GET BEHIND IN MY RENT.  I HAVE BEEN A MONTH BEHIND FOR SOME TIME, AND EXPLAINED THIS SITUATION TO  THE LANDLORD.  DID THEY CARE?  OF COURSE NOT.  NOW I AM ON THE VERGE OF BEING EVICTED.  THE LANDLORD SAW TO IT THAT I WENT TO LANDLORD TENANT COURT FOR DECEMBER'S RENT IN JANUARY, AND THE COURT SAW FIT THAT THE JANUARY RENT SHOULD BE ADDED TO RENT DUE.  THEREFORE, WHEN I PAID THE DECEMBER RENT IN JANUARY, THE JUDGEMENT FOR JANUARY HAD ALREADY BEEN GIVEN.  A WRIT WAS FILED, AND I CAN BE EVICTED AT ANY TIME.  MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS MY CHILDREN, AND THE EMBARASSMENT THAT THEY WILL SUSTAIN IF I AM EVICTED.  PLEASE HELP ME.  MY ARREARAGE IS $1100, BUT I CAN PAY BACK HALF OF THE MONEY ON JANUARY 17TH, AND THE OTEHR HALF ON FEBRUARY 14TH.  PLEASE CAN SOMEONE OUT THERE HELP ME?

HELP KEEP ME FROM BEING HOMELESS

"NEED A HELPING HAND"

     The past year has been the most difficult and challenging time in my entire life. I hit "ROCK BOTTOM" at nearly 60 years of age. I was released from Federal prison in 2006. I spent several months "HOMELESS" living in the "CITY MISSION" in Buffalo,NY.  It took me nearly a year to find full time employment in the Buffalo area.
     A few months ago I found a small apartment to call home. I could no longer take being "HOMELESS".  I quickly fell behind on the rent since I wasn't working at the time. I was ready to pick up my first paycheck on August 17 when New York state took everything
I had coming. Leaving me facing "EVICTION" facing a trip back to the "CITY MISSION" being "HOMELESS" again.
     I'm a Vietnam War Vet, College Educated, I  was dedicated to following the law and hard work my entire life. Now I find myself asking for help! My rent is $425 a month, I'm
behind $1275.00. If everyone who reads this and can help, put $1.00 or any amount in an envelope and mailed it to L Brown, 20 Floreis Ct #1, Cheektowaga, NY 14225 it would be enough to keep me from being put out on the street.
