I have no one to turn to. I'm trying hard to find relatives to ask for help, but I'm not sure if there are even any surviving relatives to ask. I am the caregiver for my 76 year old grama who has stage four cancer. I need help because I am at my breaking point. I need to find a way to get money so I can get another person to come in and take on some of the responsibilities. I feel like I'm drowning...

I am so scared! In January 1992 I lost my husband of 23 years, Bill was my best friend. We had our ups & downs but we worked hard to give our 2 sons the best life we could. When Bill was 47 he went into the hospital to have surgery on the main artery to his brain. During surgery Bill had a stroke and slipped into a coma & within a few hours Bill was brain dead. This all happened on my 41st birthday. Our sons were just 13 & 15. I wasn't sure I could do this alone without Bill I was only half a person. The day we were leaving to bury Bill our home insurance company called to tell me that they were denying the bennifits because Bill lied saying he didn't have hypertention. Bill and I both knew he had high blood pressure but never knew it was called hypertension. I tryed to fight it because if Bill's blood pressure was the reason for his death they would not have taken his heart and other organs. Because I did not have the money to fight this with a lawyer we were stuck. Bill actually died because he had a birth defect all the ateries were the size of a stirring straw instead of a drinking straw. When they opened the artery it fell to pieces and there was nothing they could do to save him.Sat. after Bill died our furnace was blowing black smoke I didn't have the money to get it fixed so the kids and I slept in the kitchen with the stove on, Monday the motor in our only car blew up. Two weeks later my pipes frooze so I had to go under our mobile on my tummy with a hair dryer to try to defrost the pipes whn I finally got to the pipes the extention cord unpluged. So on my tummy I had to turn around go back out to plug it in again.By this time I was crying wondering what else was going to happen.:( I continued to work my full time job plus a part time job on weekends just to make ends meet. When summer came and my weekend job ended I picked tabacco all weekend. We lived in the country at this time with an acre of land the upkeep was really taking a tole on me so after 4 years of trying to do it all we decided to sell our home and move in to town where my parents lived. after a year of being in town I was injured at work and had to have my knee replaced. It did not take me long till I was back to work. In 2000 I was d'x with MS. My sons are married and have given me 5 beautiful grandchildren. I was determened to not allow MS to keep me down! I could no longer do the job I had so I went and started to apply for other jobs. I got one, it's seasonal decorating cakes. I work from Feb to the end of Oct. It doesn't pay much and I only work 2 to3 hours 3 days a week.I am getting Social Security but that is only $906.00 a month. I have been at this job for 11 years now. I work evenings so I offered to take my mom and an elderly 93 year old to all their Dr. appointments. Recently my car died, the thing that upsets me the most is that I don't want to let my mom & Ida down. Ida is 93 and everytime I pick her up and lean across her to put her seat belt on she kisses me and tells me that I am her Angel.
Where I live I pay for the fuel and this year the bill was over $1000.00, I have no idea how I am going to pay it. I have never wanted for much. I used to tell Bill I wasn't a fancy diamond ring person all I have ever wanted was to be able to pay my bills and maybe once or twice a year go out to eat somewhere nice.
I have not talked about what I have been through in such a long time. I do write in my journals which helps a lot. I really needed to release some of the fear I am feeling everyday.
Thank you so much for giving people like me a place to vent.
I pray all the time asking God to help me get a car ( it doesn't have to be fancy, would like to have heat though) and help me with these outstanding bills.
Thank you again, God Bless you! Barbara McEvoy

 in response to friedapplepie...   Lol! No I never did! I don't know what really, really kept me out of that loop, meaning is there actually someone/thing out there watching my back, or....... Im a lucky girl?!! I just kept stumbling onto what I needed to make it thru the day, (gas, a bill pay, etc...) literally out of the clear blue sky! Anyway,,,, I got one of my stupid waitress jobs back and my family (sis) jumped up n saved my ass and my babies as well! I'm thinkin the whole panhandling, homeless thing could very well be the basis for my college thesis! Hence, Graduate!!!1 hee hee
