I am married to a man who is on Social Security Disabilty for Bipolar Disorder. I am the only person who works to provide for our two sons.
I asked my husband to open a savings account for the checks he receives for each son. He refused. That was seven years ago.
I told him, about five days ago, that he is not able to take care of his money. I told him I could help.
He was so angry at me. Instead of saving any of the bill money, he spent all of it, in one day.
I found out tonight. Our power bill is due on 24th. Our water bill is due in 5 hours. I am devastated, not by his actions, but the fact he has no remorse for the actions he took.
He agreed he would pay for these two bills, when he got on SSD. I ask nothing more, nothing less of him money-wise. I pay everything else for our family.
I wish I could cry, but I am way to numb about living this way. Sometimes I wish I could end my life, but I can’t. I am a mother of two boys, who need me. And honestly, I like myself to much to hurt myself.
I am in need of $500 to pay these two bills, buy groceries, and put gas in my vehicle.
Please Lord, help me. I will take next paycheck (get it on Friday), and save $300 for these bills for the next time this may happen.
Please help me. I never ask anyone to help. Now, I really need help.
Thank you for your time.
(Pic of screenshot: tried to get into account, but I will have to pay in person. Technically, I have no account because was due yesterday no later than 5pm EST. I think the fridge says it all.)
