Post Military Isn't Easy.

Hello! I'm Melissa and I've been married to my husband, Doug for almost 15 years.  He is a hard working man.  He joined the US Navy when we got married so that when we had kids, I could stay at home and raise them.  Unfortunately, last year he was forced out. We survived as long as we could on his "severance". I got my first job in 13 years. I had to start at the bottom making minimum wage. He's back in school full time. I'm paying $320 a month for health and dental. My paychecks are not enough to pay the bills. Luckily, his GI Bill is paying his way through school. But for now, we're stuck in a very bad spot. We have no idea how we're going to pay our bills next month. This is a last resort in an attempt to be able to have our own place. We don't live near family, nor do we have the means to get back to them as they are about 800 miles away. We don't want to ask for help, but at this point we really need it. All we ask is that you donate just a small token to help us. I work 40 hours a week plus whatever overtime I can snag. I still don't make enough to pay rent, not to mention other bills. Please help.
