I want to thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. My husband will be applying for unemployment in the morning, and I will be making a trip the Dept of Human Services to apply for food stamps. As low as I feel about doing that, without me working we need every bit of help we can get.
I also am going to call first thing in the morning to set up an appointment for Disability. Then make phone calls to doctors and hospitals to get medical records.
My husband was laid off 2 years ago and we did ok but I also was able to work nearly full time hours. WIthout that extra income I feel like we have no safety net. I know God will provide. But it’s hard not to feel scared. We were supposed to go to Mayo clinic this spring. I may have once again rely on the generousity of my parents in order to afford the trip.
I know this sounds awful but it’s hard not to be hurt (and sometimes even angry) at my inlaws. My dad has done more to help my husband then his own father. He’s more supportive and understanding. My parents have helped more times then I can keep track of through our marriage. My inlaws are sitting on $10,000 from my husband’s grandparents will that they will only allow us to use for a down payment on a house. I’m praying that they change their minds and let us use some to pay our insurance cobra payments which will suck up more about half of my husbands unemployment checks per month. I can not be with out medical insurance.
It feels good to have my online “family” to support and pray for me and my family during this rough time. Thank you all so much! God Bless you and your families.
