Help Us Survive

Lillian here. Though I have traditional 9-5 employment and Merris is working as hard as he can, we're just not going to make it in July. Two huge expenses have come up and even with asking for extra hours at work, there's no way I can personally earn it all. We have taxes due on our house and Merris's medications have cost us over 300.00. We can't afford insurance and my job doesn't offer any. I can't make my car payment. Last night the car that I got after my mother's death in February, started making a grinding noise when I brake. It's now got the same issue as my other, non drivable car. I will soon be without transportation and thus without a job and without a way to pick up my kids. I'm trying so hard and working even on my "time off". I feel completely discouraged. Without help I honestly have no idea what we're going to do. I hate hate hate asking. I know a lot of people are going through a hard time right now. I wish I could help. I can't even afford to get my youngest son a birthday gift. Here's a breakdown of what we need: 275 for our taxes 100 for a dental appointment for Merris to get an abcessed tooth pulled (I'm looking into charity clinics, however they're all over an hour away, and with the car needing repairs...) Roughly 600 to get the car fixed 380 for the car payment In updates I'm happy to provide receipts. I'm asking for over the total amount just to make sure I have enough because I always seem to come up short (taxes, hidden fees, car repair is only an estimate etc) Even if all you can do is share this or send positive thoughts...I appreciate you. All of you keep us going even when obstacles are thrown our way. Every day I pray our situation will improve so I can give back. I really love you all.
