Hi...I feel very weird and humbled to be on this site. I have never been this down and out in my 39 short years. I am a single mother of four, lost my job several months ago and was working for a friend up until two weeks ago at her office. I have nothing at this point, under my tree or in my bank. Not even food. I am so depressed and ashamed I feel like a failure as a mother. No matter how hard I try the bills just keep coming and I cant seem to catch up. We are living off the basics now, water,electric, garbage. I have no heat and haven't for some time. Praise the inventor of the space heater:). I don't know what to tell my kids. They don't understand. I have always pulled a rabbit out of my hat no matter what. I have the hat, but no rabbit this time. My 16 yr. old son battled depression last year and attempted suicide. As a result of my caring for him I lost my job two days before my six year anniversary. It kills me that Im not working. I have applied to numerous places, revised my resume, even applied for jobs Im overqualified for and nothing. I just got a rejection email from Lowes. Maybe it's my age? Although it seems Im young it may look different on paper? I dont know. Im grasping at straws now. It can leave a person very discouraged to say the least. Well, I just needed to vent my thoughts/emotions for a while. I have no family and few friends and I will not breakdown around my kids who truly are the lights of my entire being. If no one reads this, oh well, if someone does and can relate, you are not alone. It could be any one of us anytime. Thanks for the shoulder....Me

How old were you when you found out about santa? how old were your kids when you told them the truth about santa? Im just thinking maybe this could be a little bit of help to some parents including myself. Im thinking about telling my 9yr old the truth but i would like opinions before doing so. I know our 12yr old just found out last yr??? Opinions welcome bt don't be rude there is no need for it please?
Hello everyone me and my husband are not working and working hard to provide for our 19 month old daughter Makela, dad tries so hard that it makes him sad to see that we can rovide a christmas, or christmas tree for our baby this year, this would be the first christmas that she recognizes what christmas is about. Every christmas commerical is a party for her, but a hurt piece for me and my husband, but we dance along anyway to keep her happy. please find it in you hearts to help us with gifts this christmas, even if one is all you can provide. That one gift is plenty to our family. Philadelphia, PA

hello, i lost my job, my apartment, and my kids to my ex-wife. I dont have anything for christmas for them, and on top of that my son's birthday is December 19th. They are ages 4 and 5. I dont need anything for myself, my only wish is that they have a good christmas. If any one can help my kids it would be truly a Christmas Miracle. God bless you. May all your wishes come true and have a very happy holiday.
