I ONLY want to get something for my kids and wife for Christmas-I think ive sold about all thats sell able of mine-Ive dug through everything-Im disabled-And can not remember the last time ive ever seen any money from my government check-And as far as credit cards-What a mistake those are-People and places say you have to establish credit first in order to get a loan-Then you get them-And they still dont get a loan-So you use them and use them-Then your overwhelmed in debt-But without them-we would not have been able to buy fuel oil last year-Living in VT is costly now days-The jobs are just not here-And neither is the pay-I just do not know what to do-I can not even afford to help pay to get my son to come visit us on Christmas from Fort Hood Texas-And hes going back to Iraq in the spring-ANYTHING would be nice-And if this gets over looked-I do understand-And i feel so bad about asking-It makes me feel like a beggar-And adds to my depression-Because being on stupied morphine patches 24/7 and confined to the house 24/7 is depressing as it is-Ive lost so much-like not being able to fish/hunt/watch the kids games at school/travel/walking/It just takes a toll on a person-And as far as programs for the disabled-Theres just not enoufgh of them-But even if i get nothing-I still have my four kids and wife-And wish for all of you to have a verry merry Christmas-And a better year-than this one was-And a BIG holiday wish goes out to all the members of our military-Because we know what its like not having your kids at home for Christmas-Because we know what a parent feels-Thank

We have 5 children and no money either. I guess it is just the way the world is right now. My children know that Christmas is about family and friends and I guess at the young age of 5 my son has to learn a hard lesson about Santa. I am going to school trying to get a degree but untill I finish in 1 in a half years we will struggle and probably loose our house because we are only making about $500.00 a month for our family size of 6. In any event we know we have each other and will continue our faith in god that we will make it through this TOGETHER and not let money or hard times tare us apart. Good luck and may god bless every one of you in hardship. Those of you who really deserve and need the help I hope you recieve it.

I'm not very good with these things, but what the heck, my children deserve a try.  Im a 31 year old husband and father to two kids, a 8 year old girl and a 6 year old boy.  When I was 7 years old, my mother passed away because of an aneurysm blew in her brain.  This past Febuary, my biological father had an aneurysm burst and was barely saved.  So, I went in to get checked for one as well.  Low and behold I had an aneurysm waiting to burst myself.  So, on May 20th, I went in for a procedure called Coiling.  They pack in the aneurysm with small coils so that the blood flow doesn't go in the anuerysm.  There was a 6% chance of something happening during the procedure, and during the procedure, I had blood leak from the aneurysm and caused me to have a cerebral hemerhage and a small stroke.  I woke up with tremendous pain in my head and could not see correctly out of my left eye.  I also had tingling in my hands, feet and mouth.  Since then, I have gotten a little better, but am told I might have severe headaches for the rest of my life.  Well, my wife makes just over $8 an hour and my Long term disability only pays 60% of my former pay.  This Christmas I am just happy to be alive, but, my children went through a lot that month as I was in the ICU for 7 days and they were not able to visit me at all.  I feel so bad cause I was off all summer and wasen't able to do anything because of pain and other complications I had with the bleed.  I will probably have permanent damage and will never be the same again, but like I said, I'm just happy to be alive. 

 

Any help would be seriously appreciated!!  As my wife doesn't make much and my pay check has been cut by a lot, we barely have enough left over to pay for rent, we have asked most of our family to buy our two kids stuff for school, food, and other necessities, but I do not really want to keep asking for stuff and there pretty strapped as it is.  Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.  We live in Maplewood, MN and if you want to contact me, you can send me a message at here or at my website under Ironman..

 

THANK YOU!!!!

My name is Alexus and I have a family of five. I have worked every day of  my life since I was sixteen and I can prove it. I own my business and work long hours. I have a 17yr old boy, a 18yr old girl in resource classes. and a twenty year old daughter with the mind and abilty of a 13yr old. my parter has not been able to find a job for about a year now. I support all of us and I.m behind on every bill we have... I pray for relief no one will help us because they go by gross not what I bring home or how much I have to pay out. My kids are older and want bigger item things but theres no way I can get what they want. I know there are people out there with bigger problems and more needs then mine. This is probally our last Chirstmas together and once more I am going to let them down. I keep telling them every year it will get better but as usual I've lied to them again.
