Hello, fellow mom.  Maybe AmeriPlan can help you save some money on your family's many healthcare costs.  AmeriPlan has a nationwide network of providers and our members get discounted rates. Members can also use our Hospital Advocacy program to negotiate special discounts on hospital stays - even ones from the past if you still owe over $2,500.  All the info is at http://www.deliveringonthepromise.com/40466086.  Best wishes, Rosie

Mother of 3 beautiful children

Hello to all and many thanks for your time.  My family (husband, 3 children and myself) are in much need of financial help.  We have fallen behind on our bills, thus do to major medical expenses for our 8 year old son.  It is taking every bit of $$ that we earn to make our mortgage payment (late) keep gas in the vehicle and pay for our sons rx's each month.  These alone after our insurance pays is still over $250.00 per month.  Our son has multiple medical concerns that include Crohns Disease, Asthma, vision loss 20/70 corrected (since birth) Osteo Genesis Imperfecta (age 2) Migraines (age 3), and most recently Complex Reginal Pain Syndrome (age 7) following a left Navicular foot fracture.  All of the listed above require much dedication, chronic care, and a lot of $$.  As you can see this is nothing new, as he has suffered since birth, but all tend take it's toll.  I have contacted gov. agencies to only be turned down.  We fall into a lower middle class income bracket.  Nobody seems to take into consideration the extreme amount of $$ that is going out each month v.s. the amount coming in.  We have always struggled and even had no choice to file for chapter 13 BK then converted to a 7 in the past.  I have thought of doing this again, however fear of losing our home.  It seems that our son's most recent diagnosis has got us in a hole that we can not dig out of.  My telephone is ringing and I'm afraid to answer.  Collection agencies can be so cruel.  I've explained our situation, but they seem to have heard it all and offer no sympathy.  I have never ask for any type of hand-outs, and have always felt that some how some way all will heal.  I have realized this is not the case.  I loose sleep, and I am literally feeling ill.  I'm trying to be strong as much as I can.  I know that my son needs me.  Honestly his smile keeps me going, however I'm not sure how much longer I can front this pain.  If there is anyone out there who can offer assistance to my family, I would be forever greatful.  I know we all have a gaurdian angel, and I also believe that there is an angel in all of us.  Please I beg of you can somebody be ours??

Now your talking, people love to eat, and love sweets,  and home baked made goodies, you are a amazing person, and you do not give up, which is the quality that will help you get your much needed , and much deserved help.  If this works and it should,, stores, even friends, people throw away bananas , when they start looking to ripe, scoop them up my friend, freeze them, it be very cheap., also zuccinis people throw those away, zuccini, carrot and banana bread are good sellers, if you do the auction thing, make up  a few small plates of cookies in stead of one big one, you will make more money...  also maybe that church you told me about that helped you, tell them your idea, because for one, they see you are more then willing to help yourself, people tend to help people that they are trying, and you oviously are.  Then they could have a BAKE  GOODS AUCTION, at their church, and if they told their congregation, a little about your story, and had the auction,  you might surprized they may even want to get in their and bake some things, and donate them to your aucton, wouldn't surprize me in the lieast.  You will be shocked at the money that can come in..  Honestly awhile back at my church, which isn't large, but some people have money there, I would be  not  be one of them, but my point is they had a baked good auction, for a a few people that were trying to get funds to go to Peru.  My daughter came by and was shocked as well,  the least amount they got for anything was 5.00, and they let that go, because I wanted to help and get something and I haven't got money to spend like they did. They took in over 2,000 dollars in a  about a hour, people were having a ball , they were laughing at each other it was really fun.   outbidding each other trying to get that pie or that  loaf of banana bread, the bids got outrageous, 50 bucks for a  homemade pie, 70 bucks final bid for  some chocolate things.. all things are possible, and I saw it happen.... So my sweet friend,, talk to that church,  you said  it was Hope something,, talk  to them if you like.  and if works, then you can take the extra little money that may be left after you bills,  and get  some more stuff to   to  it again, churches as I said will sooner do that sometimes, because they see you are putting forth the effort. The best to you.   and I  can't wait to hear how it goes for you..

Make it  be the BEST DAY yet for you,  I will be saying a prayer for you....You made my day! thanks

God bless

Going Crazy

I have never seen the economy so bad as it is today. You walk into a job interview and there is at least 25 people for the same job at 10 appointment.  All young just out of school and in walks in a middle ages woman.  Gee guess who they choose, young people don't expect a large salary , most live at home.

And I live in Miami if you don't speak Spanish you have a double whammy.

Thank you so very much for the definition.  You know all of this time I have been using LOL when I send off cards (birthday, sympathy,etc) I would write a note and sometimes add LOL.   I thought it meant 'lots of love'.  Oh well, that shows you how much I know!

I really enjoy & am inspired by your beautiful words of encouragement.  I well keep you in my prayers.

God bless you,

Hey Who Knew,

I know this is a really stupid question.  But I honestly don't know what it means.  I see people use it all the time on the internet.  I am not very internet saavy & I don't do the text message cell phone thing.  So, here goes, what does BTW mean?

Thanks,

There is a lot of despair, but there is also hope. How did we become this way? I don't know, maybe in the rush to commit "financial suicide", we forgot what was truly important. BTW I like that term, A LOT! If only more people were open, honest, and giving there would be no need...

A degree from Harvard is truly prestigious, there are too few who have the same opportunity. Use it wisely. In the near future, you may be able to open doors for others who are not as successful as you. Remember your time here, however brief, it may impact your future.
