We have been living under less than ideal conditions for the last year.
I am trying to get disability and I just can't make it with the little I have been getting every month.
We have been living on less than 500. a month and more like about 350.
To hook up power they want a thousand just to connect to a powerpole because I am in an rv.
The cost of a pole with meter box is about 350 dollars. Then there is about 150 ft of wire needed and a 50 amp rv plug in box and post to mount it on.
I am also considering going with solar and a wind generator and putting in a swamp cooler (no electric bill)
As it stands right now we have no working refrigerator because it needs twelve volts for the control panel to run on propane.
We have no way to cool the trailer without electricity.
I had a generator and the pull start broke on it and I could not afford the gasoline for it.
Its been a struggle and I've missed appointments and other things that would have helped me get disability already because of struggles with vehicle reliability issues. When I'm not having problems with it I am with affording the gas to put in it.
Besides dealing with those struggles I have been dealing with complex PTSD, anxiety and depression.
Buddy is my hero and at times when I've thought about just ending it he's why I haven't. He doesn't care about my history and when I am down he helps lift me up.
I really want a better life for him and don't want to give him up. He is like my therapist and kid in a fur suit rolled up into one.
