First off, while I understand this might not mean much to you right now, I am praying. I know (believe me, I KNOW) how hard things can be. I also
know that things can get better. There are programs to help refinance, but be VERY careful of scams, or places that want you to pay them to help.
Legitimate helps costs you nothing. It can take time, but it can be done. For the financial needs, try a local church for some help. Some have
funds available to help people in real need. Many more can offer food, to defray those costs. There could be other resources in your area. Don't
be afraid to look, or too proud to ask. We all need a hand from time to time. Talk to the power company, and explain this is a real hardship, and
see what they can do to work with you. Some companies will stretch a bill out over months, and as long as you meet the current and that little past
due added on, will work with you. Some places have laws that don't allow them to shut it off, in hardship cases, in cold weather, too.
If there are people praying, I would hope some are trying to do more than just pray. I know a lot of people have things really rough these days, but
even a little here and there can help when it's really bad. If you need to rant more than the boards allow, feel free to PM a rant any time.
Complain, gripe, whatever. Sometimes, just being able to talk about it can help alleviate the stress. Hang in there.
