Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" Yeah, we thought FL would be amazing... then we realized that there were almost no jobs in some places. ... [snip!] ... we had no other way of surviving, SO's pay was all going to utilities and we couldn't afford to eat when we lived there. "
We're on FS right now. We may be poor as hell, but at least we can eat. Even if he applies for unemployment, we won't survive the winter. Not without help and I absolutely HATE asking for financial help. I just feel like I owe that person, even if I pay them back. His dad helps us so much already that I just can't bear to ask him for anything else. Our central heat and air box (outside) is broken so we're BARELY keeping the house warm and we live in a double wide that's almost 30 years old and suffered major flood and termite damage. Not only are we struggling to pay bills, but I worry that parts of the floor are going to fall in.
I just seriously get depressed staying here all day and thinking that DD has to grow up like this. If it weren't for people letting us borrow movies and games and having a PS3 gifted to us for Christmas last year, I might just explode of boredom and rage.
