Please help me keep my family together. We’re living check to check with next to nothing extra leftover. Our money issues continues to strain my marriage and I can’t sleep at night due to our endless bills. Playing this game of deciding who will get paid what month is extremely draining. We’re going on three very long years struggling and I sincerely don’t know how much longer I can continue this way. I’m mentally exhausted. I wake up and go to bed thinking about our bills.
Every time I think I’ll soon see a light at the end of the tunnel something breaks down or a new bill appears. Since being diagnosed with breast cancer and treated, I’ve inheritted medical bills I cannot pay. We no longer pick up our phone as it’s always a bill collector. The harder I try to get us caught up with our bills the more surprises come up. My husband’s hours being cut even further to nearly part-time status from full-time was the final straw that led me to doing this.
Ours are normal bills, nothing extravagant. I don’t know how I’m going to keep up with our monthly utility bills, pay our mortgage, feed ourselves and pay for gas for us to get to work. We’re hard working people, always have been. We’ve also always blessed others over the years without thinking twice about it. Thank you for reading about us. Knowing that God will never give us more than we can handle — even when we feel otherwise is partly what keeps me going.
