I know how all of you feel. This subject brings me to tears and I asked myself how in the world am I going to buy my next meal. I have no way of paying my bills and my unemployment has run out. I married a man that can only provide for himself and the gross debt that his divorce left behind. I have a descent resume and am proud of what all I've accomplished. Yet, this military has men and women taking up two to three jobs per house hold and have taken all the jobs. Even the unemployment office that I visit will tell me there's nothing that I could do. This state is a joke because they pay minimum wage for a bachelors degree. My only solution at this point is file bankruptcy. God bless you all in this rough time and I pray that we all can get back up on both of our feet.

No clue what to say to you. I don't know what to say to myself. I have a bachelors, MBA, and I am also an attorney. I own a home and a car, but I still need to make payments on both, plus my student loans. I have work experience in business, management, teaching, retail, and serving (and much more to count). I have been applying to work for 5 months and nothing yet. I live very frugally and am counting solely on my family for support. I'd be homeless without them.

Hi

I am in the same situation. I lost my work, had to sell my car for pennies on the dollar. I borrowed from my credit cards till the max. I look for work daily in person and on the internet but no one calls me back. I used up all my savings, eliminated cable tv, cell phone, home phone, air conditioning ( I live in FL). I have nothing else to sell or cut back. There are no jobs out there. Lots of work at home scams that have taken money from me and did nothing.
I do not have an answer as to how to pay rent or food. The assistance I was approved for is almost nothing and cannot pay for much. I guess there is no way out right now.

I can't believe some of the people on here who have no compassion for those hurting financially. I live in So. Cal. And jobs are almost non-existent. It's easy to say get off your tush and just get a job when you have one. I personally have been disabled for the last couple years and my disability has run out and I have lost everything. I sold all my possessions except for some clothes and am going from couch to couch so I don't have to sleep on the streets. My family is also struggling financially so they are not able to help much but they do let me eat, sleep and shower in their homes which I sincerely appreciate. I have been trying to get some assistance through the Los Angeles County system and have to try to file for permanent disability due to my injuries but they are not very helpful and it takes a long time to get an interview just to talk to someone. It really is a joke here in L.A. County and the workers there just don't care. There has to be a better way to get some assistance and I would appreciate anyone living in L.A. County that can tell me what I can do to get financial assistance so I can at least give my family a little money to help with the food I eat as well as the water/electric bill. Personally I think  the system makes it so you get discouraged and give up. The problem is when you are disabled like myself and am not able to work there aren't many options for getting some kind of relief. I have worked since I was 16 years old and I am now 51 so I have paid my dues but the offices I have been to don't seem to want to hear my problems. Those who are harping on the people who really need help like myself and are not trying to scam the system need to ease up and understand that sometimes its not easy trying to get back on your feet. I only hope that they never have to go through what some of us are going through.

Again, if anyone can help me find assistance in helping me receive some financial help and going through the disability process, avoiding all the red  tape I would be very grateful. When I had insurance my doctor told me that I should not be working but I could not survive on the money disability gave me. Now I have no choice. I have no insurance so I am not able to see my doctor anymore and I am not able to get my medication. The medication allowed me some quality of life. Without them I am in constant pain and just getting out of bed is a chore in itself. Without insurance I have no doctor and no meds.

It's easy to offer advice when you are not facing eviction, homelessness, and seeing all you have sold for pennies. Seeking a job now is like blood from a turnip and usually happens after you are homeless. So please, don't preach ethics or name call. Local services are swamped and so are all the usual charities. One must just exercise perseverance even if it means losing everything.

I am sorry to read of your troubles. I wish I had an answer for I am in the same situation (exception - no kids). Disregard the ignorant so called hard talk in the upper message. I am quite sure your lack of job is not due to lack of effort. I hope things will get better for you, me and others suffering.

You know what get a job or go to jail. The upper comments are right. What kind of DAD want to see his kids go without. Stop your crying because your children didn't ask to be there

If no charities or govt agencies will help you then you need to fall back on family and friends. When I had nothing, I still had my Faith, my family and my friends. And none of those things have ever turned their backs on me. Good luck.

I'm going to get a 'lil bit harsh so I ask for forgiveness in advance:  Get off your tush, get a job, live in a shelter, support those children, then find a studio apartment to rent in which to visit your children & never rely on government nor charities....be a man as you have children relying on you!  I am truly sorry for that whippin' but I do believe you needed it......♥nassy
