I don't know your story but I do know that you shouldn't give in to the system. yes it does suck in many ways. I guess I would be upset too, but think before you act so that things are not worse for you.

I'm just feeling dark tonight. I think I'll keep to myself for the rest of the night. Good night all.

The help is here. But I keep getting denied. It's such an absolutely ridiculous system and I've had it! Tomorrow I will either get the help I need, or get arrested. Either way, I'm about to cause the biggest scene any of them have ever witnessed. I can't deal with it anymore! I paid into this Effing system for 18 years. And when I actually need help, not because I'm some sort of deadbeat or degenerate, I'm denied as I watch the parolees come and go for their freebies. I hate this country!

I am sure it does. I am having a hard time that things are not in your area --they fill the web/ media / all these programs to help/ sometimes I just don.t get it/don,t get me wrong I know if it was there you would find it, there is just a gap in help in many areas I have noticed this in just speaking to people across the country
Now what size does your son need pants and shirts there are many places here I can go get things if you could let me know sizes,annie46

I have to spend it all on clothing. I don't need any, but my son has outgrown everything seemingly over night. They didn't have a single pair of jeans his size, and only 3 pair of other pants. That's what he needs the most. I wouldn't even mind getting pants that are too big and altering them if I had my sewing machine. This is just so surreal. I have at least $60k worth of possessions being illegally kept from me. I can't get legal help so I filed the lawsuit on my own. But the court date isn't until June 11! I just can't make it that long. As it is I have no idea how I'm going to pay any bills, or get the things we need. We haven't even had any meat to eat in over a month. We've been out of milk for 2 weeks. Days like today make it really hard to stay positive :'(

Yes, it's a $100 voucher to the Salvation Army Store. I can only use it at this location and I have to use the whole thing in one trip.
