Exclamation what on earth do i do? - December 27th 2016, 10:16 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Edited because too revealing

I am 22 years old, unemployed and living with mental health problems. I'm trying to get into a program that helps people with mental illness get a job, housing, and a community. Right now though I only have about 20 something dollars left. My father went on a 3 months vacation. He did not leave enough money at home. I have 2 sisters living with me. My oldest is self employed and doesn't make enough. My youngest has scholarship money that she can use but not sure if she will, as it is her money. My father used all my savings I had and has yet to pay me back. Relatives disowned us. Soup kitchen I used to volunteer at offers only dinner. I don't know of another soup kitchen within walking distance. Plus no pets allowed there and I have a 10 year old cat that I can't give up. I'm scared

Hey!

I'm so sorry that you're going through this over Christmas. Christmas is already stressful for most people without adding extra stress to people. Do you guys have food banks down where you live? Do you think you'd be able to get on disability or welfare?

Let me know
Brittany

Hey there,

I would suggest that you and your sister's look into food banks and see if there are any around you. I know that might be difficult but we have few around here and my grandma used to go to them and get some food. They give some decent stuff though. Other than that I am unsure about what you can do. Is there anyway for you to contact your dad and see if he can send you and your sisters some money?

I'm sorry to hear you were scarce on money and food. I'm also glad you and your sisters were able to get in touch with your dad.

Hopefully things are better for you now.
