Single mom with kids..almost homeless

mom2them started this conversation

I am a single mom with 2 beautiful children. A 3 yr old daughter and an 8 yr old son. I lost my job a couple months ago and have been unemployed til about a week ago.I havent paid my September or October rent and am being evicted. I have no family at all. I called the local shelters to see where we could go when we get thrown out..and found out that the only shelter in my area that allows women with children is on a 6 month waiting list!! We have nowhere to go!! ive been to EVERY social service organization here and have been turned down for any assistance with paying my rent to avoid being evicted because I was fired from my job! I have a job now and would be able to start catching up on my bills...but in the meantime i only needed to be able to pay the 2 months i am already behind..and there is no way to do that. I dont know what to do! I have always busted my butt working hard for my kids..have been in management for the last 18 years..yet now that Ive been unemployed we are about to lose everything that we have. I dont know how to tell my 8 yr old that in a couple of weeks we will possibly be living in our truck..this will devastate him! We moved to the state that we are in in January because my ex was abusive...I tried to move here to give my kids and I a fresh start and a better future away from the abuse...HA! When i got here I tried to get help from a local domestic violence organization but was told that since I had gotten away with no help that they cant help me either..part of me is actually considering going back to him just to avoid my children being homeless..and i know that would be a terrible decision. I just dont know what to do..and i have no options anymore. I need help so badly..and i have nowhere to turn and no one to talk to..I am so alone here..

Walmart has 3 types of diabetic insulin which you can puchase if you know what you need without a prescription it's called reliOn brand or slow or fast acting Novolin N and R for 24.99 a bottle. My husband uses it it's not as good as some but if you test your sugar a lot you can use it well without problems,,Just call and ask your local Walmart about what they carry at that price in insulin
