I hav enever had a Christmas where I had nothing to give except something homemade. Sounds cute and "movie of the week" precious perhaps? NOT HARDLY. I am embarassed that every where I turned for help even to Christian organizations, I was told no.
at least its over and I have to focus on getting heat help. LiHeap will help a little when I get thepapers filed, but there are more bills than LiHeap can help with.
I was praying for an angel of mercy with a gift of funds.... I guess the answer to my prayer was NO
I need work on my car done and cant afford it, no money for christmas gifts, and charities say I applied too late. I need real, tangible, practical help from someone who cares, not well wishers who dont put their sentiments into action.
HELP !!! Can anyone help in a real way???? PLEASE ?
Now what. No car (cant get to a job), no belongings, no family. I made it to the low point. I cant believe that there is no one who can help. waiting on foodstamps...
THIS SHOULD NOT BE CALLED "AIDPAGE"... It should be called "share your story, but dont expect anyone to help you - page"
I have hung in there all I can. without some immediate tangible help, i dont see the point of trying. I am not asking people to solve my problems, just help make them acheivable to begin the process. I hate that it has come down to money but ..... it has. Its sad too that I have had $0 help from anyone... civic groups, churches, individuals, anyone...
I am done. its too much
Too many things are stacked against me. All I have is a small life insurance policy with no cash value. I am actually worth more dead than alive.
I quit. I have tried and tried. I cannot even get a single person to reach out a tangible helping hand. The scammers that stand at the side fo the road and hold up a sign that says "will work for food" have received more help than I have.
I am outraged at our society and the system. I am frustrated that no one has lent a helping hand or even seems to care beyond a few light words of encouragement.
I cant take it anymore. I quit.... everything. I hope everyone is better off without me dragging them down.
If I cant at least see something good happen by Oct 1, then I am done trying. After months and months of working hard with no good coming of it, I give up.
Encouraging words that try to inspire hope are very empty if nothing tangible ever happens. I am at my limit. I can not take any more empty "easy to say" encouraging words from people.
Either I have value and am worth helping out.... or I am not.
Apparently I have my answer.
Clearly everyone will be better off without me. Whats the point?
i spent the day trying to call every church, government program, charity, ministry, community group, united way, etc...... I heard NO alot and some told me not to call back.
I am tired of this and am ready to call it quits
I cant take it any more. I hear alot about Gods goodness and his providing hand, but all i get is bad to worse... no real tangible help, I get to feeling like there is no point,. I cant go on with ALL negatives and no help.
I dont need encouragement that feels empty from people, what I need is a tangible move of God on someone's life for me. I have stepped out in faith many times and frankly, it gets old feeling like things dont get better...I have had it... for real
What I need desperately is $1000 just to repair this car. This is not a good thing. This is not what I need to be happening at this point. Can it get any worse????
If it does, I am completely through trying and cant take any more. Anything else and its over for me.
I am serious and have had it. I am no longer at the bottom of the barrell. I am under the barrell
NOW..... ugh! So now while driving my car I blew a hole in the side of the engine! Now I have no car and no money to get it fixed. I need a new engine and someone to put it in. Here we go,.... bad to worse,.
I have prayed and still do. I have believed and kept the faith. God answers prayers, right? thats what I believe, but when is it my turn? I am not asking for a million dollars or a brand new car... God knows my need, in know cause I tell him all the time. i do take things one day at a time and have been doing that for over a year. things have only gotten worse. i am not trying to fix myself. but i wonder if maybe I should be trying to fix myself. no one else is stepping up to help and I havent heard from God on this depsite constant asking and seeking and listening
i am tired of hoping for what seems like will never come. i am at the end of everything, ready to give it all up.
I apply all the time for jobs and I have not even been called to interview for minimum wage jobs. The problem is (and here is the bottom line), i feel beat up by this situation that most (i not all) of the fight in me is gone. The fight to keep looking, keep hoping, keep trying... I cant do this anymore. God knows my need, I tell Him all the time. I ask Him not just for help but for understanding and patience. Why cant He at least throw me a bone?
Without financial intervention, I cant continue. I need a good paying job but that wont even matter if i cant get out of the mess I am in. i have applied for assistance, food stamps, etc... but it takes a long time (so it seems) and thre doesnt seem to be many programs or people willing to help a down on his luck middle aged white male. If I was a woman, i would have help, if i was black or hispanic I would have help. If I was elderly I would have help.
I have nothing. and frankly i need more than words of encouragement. I need a miracle and God doesnt seem to be doing those... at least not for me.
whats the point... of any of this?
