Proverbs 31:25

  • Mood:
I need help.

To make a long story short... I just got out of a 3 year abusive relationship, which left me the single mother of one wonderful little boy, Aidan (he'll be 2 in November). Paying for diapers, groceries, etc. wasn't a problem while I was in the relationship, but for my own health I had to get out of that.

Now, my problem is, I'm working, but I can't afford diapers, food, warm clothes, or anything I need for my son. I can barely afford the gas money to get to work, on top of babysitting $ and food.

I guess what I'm asking, and I'm sorry if I'm coming off sounding like a beggar... but if there is anyone out there who is better off than I am, if you could help me out in any way, I'd be VERY thankful. I don't have much support from my family and I really don't have any friends who could help me out, most of them are younger than I am anyways.

This is my last resort. If you could please help me, my email is, or I could email you if you comment with your email address.

Again, I'm sorry for asking, I just don't know where else to turn.

Are you on the welfare system at all?

I ask because my mom was immediately left pregnant with twin girls, my sister and I, when my dad found out she was pregnant (she was 34 then). What dh did was quit working, for the first few years, and we lived off welfare. The money and necessities were very limited and tight, but we somehow made it.

My mom became a thrift shop expert. That's all we wore and used - used things. Household appliances, but most nice, just like new clothes.

She stayed home and played with us, held us, and didn't plop us in front of the kids program on the tv and leave.. she sang the songs along with us.

What really ruined my life is when she began working when we were five. She then had to pull double time just to make ends meet, and we NEVER saw much of her, very literally.

I'm not sure what your exact situation is, or how this compares, but I felt a personal story would perhaps give you a few ideas, and help you feel not so alone.


You are very strong to leave an abusive relationship, so my kudos to you!
