My Life in a Nut Shell

3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

Embarrassment and Help

If my parents were still around I would have gone to them for help.  But they are gone.  I think the only time I've used the internet for financial help was when my van died and I needed a new one.  And that wasn't necessarily started up by me but by a wonderful triplet Mom friend who I will always be eternally grateful to.  So it is with much embarrassment and humiliation that I now ask for help.  Unemployment still hasn't kicked in but for one week and I'm now 4 weeks out from being laid off.   I do have a job to go to in August but that leaves me being stuck for right now.  My rent at the latest is due on the 15th and I don't have it.  I'm behind on my car payment, LG&E and car insurance with my car tags renewing this month.  That makes me about $1300-$1400 behind.  I have a paypal account set up because in the past I used it for things on ebay.  Some wonderful friends donated some a few weeks back that helped me pay for some things but I am desperate.  If you are able to help my paypal account is under my email address:  

If you feel offended by this request, that is fine and I'm sorry.  But I need help.

I'm tired of living this way.   I'm tired of needing help.  I worked my ass off to get us to where we are at but this setback is hard.   I'm hoping to turn things around.  I'm working to turn things around.  In the meantime I need help and if you are able to give it I would appreciate it.  If you feel more comfortable writing a check directly to my bill then I will forward that information to you.  I'm not asking for vacation money, or party money or for my nails.  This is survival money for us to catch up and keep rolling until I start my job in August.

Thanks in and advance.
