$52 a month? Yikes! That is rediculous, you should be getting more hun. Ugh. This type of stuff makes me so mad!

Re: Guess i'll be the first...

I completely understand what you are going through. I have been there too. Its not easy right now but it will get better. I left DS's father when I was 19 and had no clue what I was in for. I thought we would be fine on your own because I had a job making enough money to support us comfortably. Well after 3 1/2 years, they laid me off and I decided to go to college. Life did a total 180. I would always get through tough times by telling myself. "Im doing what I need to do so that I can get where I want to be". You seem very strong and determined.
Just keep doing what your doing.

Re: Guess i'll be the first...

mama. Youre doing a great job!!! Take the food stamps, WIC, HEAP, and whatever else you can get and hold your head up high. You're the kind of mom that these programs were created for.

And the $52??? Thats NYS for ya Maybe see if you can get more? DH's ex didnt work and told the state the 2 kids lived with her, so she got over $400/month in FS, paid rent and health INS. (She got the kids state INS for free, but we refused to use it-theyre covered under his INS so it just felt wrong.) She was even given a cash allowance. All because she didnt have a job

Girl, I've been there and I wish I could help you. Don't be afraid to take any help offered. It sounds like you are doing about all you can. I hope and pray things look up soon. That's not a fun way to live life. Hang on there. Have a Merry Christmas....just focus on your sweet little girl.

I applaud single parents! It's hard being a parent as it is, I tip my hat to those that do it all solo. Vent all you want and don't feel guilty...
