What's on your heart and mind today?

 in response to tgray1976...   you joined here yesterday and put that you were 18, Is today your birthday is that why you posted that you are 19?? You also say you are homeless but living with your parents... that is NOT homeless, some kids live at home alot longer than the age of 18 or 19, ever considered student loads and going back to school? That would help you too!! Then you can get a really good job! glgl

 in response to elisabeth23...   You live with your parents?? They arent willing to help you out? Its weird they would put you up and not let you have anything or help you out... Do you fit in Your mothers clothing?? if so , borrow hers til so you can find a job and when you get your first paycheck you can buy your own... Do you live in a city or small town? If in a city there should be buses to get you around cheap, Im sure if you were heading to a job your mom or dad would be willing to help you with bus fair to make it to work.. Anyways, gl , I hope everything works out, you are still very young, lots of opportunities out there for young kids, even flipping burgers at Mcdonalds!!

What's on your heart and mind today?

Well Its been awhile since I needed to be here... This last month was hard because i didnt have enough money to get my girls what they needed for school and pay bills at the same time.. Im regretting not paying on my lights because now I have a disconnect for Tomorrow.... How did that happen, well it was a broken payment arrangement and they dont send out disconnect notice on a broken arrangement they just come out and shut you off, so i had no notice.. They do not give extensions either, this is all what the first lady on the phone told me, I got disconnected due to lightning, so when i called back it was someone different and she said no to the extension too and I asked if i could have until tomorrow, she put me on hold and said yes, a 24 hour notice and thats it, he will be here tomorrow for payment or i get shut off...

Thats why im here, I really need some emergency help right now.. I have in the past had some very good help here by a few different members and that will never be forgotten!!!! But I so badly cant handle losing power right now.. If I get shut off tomorrow they will need 844.84 to turn me back on and a reconnection fee!!! I dont even get 844 per month, I get a measly 649.00 now after they cut it down on me.. that does not leave me anything extra each month!! Oh yeah, I get ssd and ssi which the total together is the 649 i get..

I have posted a photo of the 24 hour notice he gave me today so you can see but i have blocked out account numbers and address so not anyone can have it.. If you can help and would like to them send me a message and i will contact you with my paypal or I will give out my account number for my bangor Hydro electric company and you can pay direct to them (this is what i would prefer!) That way you know its going directly for the purpose you chose.

Please help, if you dont want to pay directly and would rather send through paypal , then my email address for paypal is tgray1976@netzero.com

Thanks for Reading

What's on your heart and mind today?

Hey everyone!!!! How are you all?? Hope things at the least, are alright. So I ended up getting all the money I was suppose to get from SSI and SSD, After SSI took $7000 from me and I paid my Lawyer $3000, i ended up with about 11k. I paid up most of my bills and ended up only paying off half of my land, $8746.00, the rest did the bills. Now im receiving my monthly SSI and SSD checks, thats nice to get, except the fact that now that i have some money coming in they cut my food stamps from 432.00/month down to 82.00/month.... Soooooo, I can pay my bills but we cant eat, lol, (not really funny), the system is messed up how they do things, If they can feed a family of 3 on 82.00 a month I wanna shop where they are!!!!!!... Well anyways, things are a bit better now, trying to budget a few dollars somehow to buy some food but its not to easy, We'll make it tho, a bit hungry but we'll make it. I have hit a couple food cubboards in nearby towns (about 20 miles away) at the beginning of the month, but they dont really give you alot, but it helps.

WEll there is my update, It took me a while because i had lost internet connection for a bit while i sorted things out here at home with the money situation. Thanks for all the help I have gotten in the last couple years here, I appreciate it. You all helped me make it through!!!!
God Bless and Take Care

P.S Im willing to help with advice or questions anyone may have about the SS system and how things happen or any questions that maybe i can answer for you about this longgggggggggggg process. Just message me!!

I've been praying that we could get the help for my lights and easter, in 2 1/2 hours it will be to late and i wont receive the money through paypal in time for easter. My 11 yr old and my 5 yr old are going to be heartbroken. I dont want to have to explain this to a 5 year old especially. I was really praying i would have some help , I see its not going to happen. I appreciate all that read my post tho and im sure you'll still hear from me. I plan on helping others go through what i have for the last 2 1/2 yrs. I thank God for this website because i have gotten help here in every form possible. Thank you all who have read my posts and helped all this time. I have love for you all, Hope you have a great Easter.

What's on your heart and mind today?

reposting today for some help if i could get it. Easters on Sunday and i have nothing for my girls yet, not a thing!! I have no money and no options to get money other than hoping someone will help me here. I also need to come up with 300.00 to stop the shut off on my lights, I just called them and they are scheduled to come shut me off on monday. DHS is helping with 150 but they dont pay that until i come up with the other 300 to stop the disconnect.
I am willing and soon will be able to pay back any help i can get. I have received my letter from SSD stating i will be getting 10,070.00 in back pay from them and Im still waiting to hear how much i will be getting from SSI in back pay, but it should be higher than that, maybe close to double that amount. I will have no problem at all sending up to 500.00 back to anyone that can help me. Im just stuck in the social security waiting period!! I have my letter i can show you that proves that i have been approved and the amount for SSD i will be getting back if that will help in your decision. The money for the lights (300) can even be paid directly to the company!! I would prefer that to ease your mind about the reason I really need help.
If someone can help with easter that would be great too but it would have to be done today considering it takes 2 days for the money to get to my bank account and sunday it never shows, so saturday would be the last day for me to get it. Please if you can I will sign an IOU and even add interest if you like, not much but some!! Please help me if you can...... my paypal email if anyone needs it is tgray1976@netzero.com thanks for reading

 in response to mamashe/sheshe...   i have mentioned many other times that I will pay someone back if they helped. That offer still stands definitely. I cant imagine it will be any longer than 2-4 weeks and i'll have my money, I will promise to pay back to anyone that will help me.
If someone is willing to help, they should do it very soon because if its sent through paypal it takes 2 days to get into my account. If someone is willing to help, I promise i can pay you back if you'd like. Let me know, thanks very much

What's on your heart and mind today?

good morning everyone. Well so far from social security, I've gotten , the judges approval letter, ssd's letter stating how much i will be getting for back pay from them and how much my monthly payments will be and that my first payment will be may, 11th.. YAH !! SSI hasnt gotten in contact with me about my checks each month yet or the amount of back pay i'll be getting. So I havent gotten any money yet which stinks because Easter is sunday, my lights are on disconnect and they are coming to shut me off if i dont come up with $450.00, I did get 150.00 worth of help from the dept. of human services but they wont pay the 150.00 until i come up with the other 300.00.... I tried calling local chuches and the penquis CAP program. They cant help me because i dont actually have a written lease, this place is basically a rent to own through the owner. Social Security definetly makes you wait alot longer than you expect. I also got approved for medicaid and that started April 1st of this year.
I am here to update you guys on my waiting process and situation and to ask for help if anyone can. I need help first with my light bill shutoff. I need 300 for that and I will give you the account number and you are more than willing to pay directly to the company, I would actually prefer that because then whomever does help knows where their money has gone. The total needed for that is 450.00 but like i said the state of maine will help with 150.00 of that and its already been approved. The other thing i need help with is Easter. I was really hoping and praying to see at least some of my money before easter, but thats not going to happen. I was hoping to get the girls bikes and a few pieces of candy and of course the eggs to boil and decorate and hide. I have none of that as of right now. I dont know if anyone can help but if you can that would be great. I'll check for messages later if anyone can help me let me know. I have paypal but also wont mind gift cards or pre-paid cards. Im almost to that point of being able to pay my bills and plan for these types of holidays, Im only waiting on them now. Hope its soon, cant be to much longer, about a couple weeks to a month from what they tell me. At least i know its coming. I can show anyone my approval letter if needed so you know I havent gotten my money yet and that i still do need help. Also the disconnect notice can be shown. Thanks for reading. I hope you all have a great easter and god bless!!

What's on your heart and mind today?

still waiting for my ssd and ssi money, this is going to seem like it takes foreverrrr....lol...... at least i know its coming!! Federal Government is cutting our food stamps AGAIN, as it is we dont make it the whole month, they cut me 40 dollars last month and i just got a letter stating this coming month (april) im losing another 50 dollars, which has nothing to do with my receiving ssd/ssi.... just new state and federal cuts. to me it doesnt make much sense to cut down on the food to feed the poor. As it is right now i only make it 3 weeks on what we get.... im afraid to see what this next cut does, as it is i dont buy any snacks/soda/juices etc. I buy all meals and the cheapest food possible and also use many coupons that i print from online.
We are getting low right now on food and not sure what they expect us to do. I would go to food cupboards for help but that takes gas because in this small town there isnt one, i'd have to travel 26+/- miles aprox. to get to one. Thats not possible!!
Cant wait to get my money, wish i could speed these people up!!

What's on your heart and mind today?

gm everyone, I finally went to court in front of the judge yesterday morning with my lawyer about my disability. I finally got approved, I will now be receiving ssd and ssi. What a hugeeeeee relief this is finally over. They owe me back pay all the way back to jan. 3rd 2009. Now its just a waiting process, my lawyer says that it can take up to 6 weeks for the judge to send out the approval letter to Social security department, myself and my lawyer, then Social Security will call me when they get the approval letter and set up a phone interview, shortly after that i will receive my money. Im really hoping it doesnt take 6 weeks for the judge to make out this letter but even if it does, its ok. I know now that the money is coming and will forever come every month. I will be able to pay my bills again and have the necessities we need. Im not sure yet how much i will be getting. I just want to make sure i thank everyone here that has sent me advice or help of any sort. I had a place to vent when i needed to and that in itself was a relief. Thank you all for everything, God Bless and take care of yourselves.

I dont even have 3.00 in returnables, sighhhhh, I also need to reschedule my daughters follow up with her doctor so they can recheck her blood now that she is almost out of her antibiotic, she is half done it and will need to see her pediatrician soon. Also need to go shopping on saturday with my foodstamps and i cant get to town and we are very low on food right now, i will make it to saturday with what food we have but after that if i dont get to go shopping we will have it a little rougher than what is needed. If someone can help, just message me please, I will even do a loan deal with someone so as soon as i get my money i will gladly return any help given. It would be up to you how you wanna do it.

Same post as 2 days ago, just reposting for help please

Things are tough right now and i could really use a little help if anyone is able to. I go to court on the 16th for my disability, im really anxious about it. I havent been taking my daughter to school because i havent had the money lately. She cries some mornings and it makes me feel badly. I had some gas in my car but i was saving it so i could make it to court next week. Well this weekend i ended up having to use the gas to take my oldest daughter Kassidy to the emergency room, she was vomiting over and over, and had a pounding headache. When we got there her blood pressure was high, and they were concerned of something being badly wrong, they immediately gave her an IV with fluids and did some blood work. Then they did a cat scan of her head they were thinking something may be wrong up there. After about 5 hours and some antibiotics in her IV they finally told us what they think was wrong. Cat scan came back with no sign of any tumors or anything but they did find that her sinuses were extremely swollen. Her blood test came back also with her WBC ( white blood count ) being 21.9 , and a high WBC is 10.9 so she was more than double the high count, which shows sign of a bad infection. They put her on antibiotics and some anti-nausea medicine and last night she was finally feeling a little better. Well now i have no gas, im suppose to take her on wednesday to see her regular doctor for a follow up, Saturday is the day i get my foodstamps and i wont even be able to go shopping without any help with some gas. I have 2 other appointments next week other than my court date. I have physical therapy and I have an appointment on next friday to see an orthopedic surgeon, they think with my carpal tunnel they can fix it and reduce or eliminate the pains in my hands. We'll see. I woke up at 3 this morning to the sound of vomiting hitting the floor. It was my youngest daughter, Dakota. She has now thrown up 3 times in 2 hours, sighhhhh. I dont know how i will ever get her to the doctors if we have to go.. Bills are all due and on shutoff. I will no longer have car insurance on the 18th of this month. I know it will probably take a couple weeks after my court date before i see any money from SSD. If anyone wants to help me it would be so needed and helpful. Im on dialup now and for some reason it takes hours to get to my messages here on aidpage, it hates to load for me, so im just going to leave this page loaded so if anyone would like to help, i will be able to hopefully just connect to the internet and wont have to reload the page. If you can help me, the sooner the better please. Just in case i have to take Dakota to the ER or her doctor too. Thanks for reading

Finally got my court date for SSD claim. March 16th is the day. Hopefully all goes well, lawyer think it should be quick and easy in there. Im so broke.....No insurace, lights are on shutoff ( but they cant turn me off right now because its the middle of winter), garbage is piling up. Phones due, internet is back to dial up and about to be shut off with the phone. I changed my phone number because my other phone was shut off due to the bill not being paid. Its very hard right now for us. I just keep telling myself only 2 more months and this will be OVER. My poor daughter isnt even able to attend her preschool because i dont have gas to get her there. my oldest daughter called home from school because she was sick and i couldnt even go and get her, she had to sit in the office sick all damn day. Im a failure!!

well christmas is coming and im miserable right now, cant believe my internet hasnt been shut off yet. Phone is gone now. I've been driving illegally cause my insurance has been shut off again!! The good thing is that the light company cant turn me off right now in the middle of the winter so im not concerned about that. I went to take my daughter to preschool this morning and my car wont start, im not sure what it is but the battery is fine, i do know that, it just wont turn over. Social Security Disability said when i called them a few weeks back that i should be getting my court date this month and that when i do that it is usually about 20 days til im in court. I cant wait to just get this over with and not be struggling so hard. I just thank god that my car started yesterday when i had to go shopping and i made it there and back, it would have really sucked to have broke down somewhere other than my own driveway. Not sure how im doing christmas for my girls, wish i had a phone but they want 275.00 to just turn it back on, sighh. The month of January has to get better for us.
I havent been here in a while, just to depressed to keep typing and asking for help when i cant really find any. Been off my meds for a few weeks now and the depression is getting bad again. I dont know where to turn , i just keep telling myself that it will be over in a month. I dont know if anyone can preform a christmas wish for me but I wish I could get my phone turned back on and have a couple hundred to buy my girls a few gifts for christmas, I dont mind gift cards either, they will serve the purpose , walmart, kmart, target, it doesnt matter. I am going to take a nap with my daughter, i hope things are going better for all of you then they are for me.

im feeling bad today, i dont have costumes for my girls or gas to take them trick or treating this year. No idea what im going to do for christmas either. I really dislike this time of year. I cant believe none of my utilities other than car insurance have been shut off yet. I dont know whats wrong with me but ive had a headache for over 2 weeks now and i cant get rid of it, its in the right side of my head in the back and down my neck a bit. Ive taken my fioricet and even tried 800 milg. ibuprofen, nothing is working, i go to sleep with it and i wake up with it. I was going to tell my dr. about it last friday but I missed my appointment because i had no gas to get there. I rescheduled for this coming thursday but i dont see me making that either. Something needs to give and quickly, Its unbearable to think what winter is goig to be like.
