I just give up.....if it wasnt for my kids I wouldve walked out the door and disappeared already......I dont know what to do right now. We are so screwed....not to mention homeless but screwed....it was too good to be true....I shoulda listened to all you when you told me that........we are getting a uhaul and sticking everything in storage, and where we go from there is anyones guess.......the weather has been decent enough so we can sleep in the van........kids are sick as he**......one needs to be back at the ER, but we have to pack a hual today and with no help, unfortunatly my kids health has to wait.....I feel so lost....so very lost...I cant stop crying...I have no one to call......cept those who will say "I told you so"..........I just need this whole run of bad luck to end.....I need a hug.....I need to stop crying...I need to be strong for my kids right now....but I cant even be strong for myself.

I'm sorry you are dealing with this. Is there any way you can go to a campsite and camp out for a bit while you figure out what you next move will be?<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

If one of your children needs medical attention, please do that first. While you are at the hospital, you can ask the nurse to get the hospital social worker for you so you can talk to her. THEY WILL HELP YOU!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> to you.

I know he needs medical attention....hes been sick going on 2 1/2 weeks now....ive changed 9 diarreah diapers since 8 this morning.....hes wheezy and has a fever...same fever he has had off and on for the 2 1/2 weeks....same diarreah.....wheezing is worse...we were in urgent care 2 days ago getting meds...they arent helping.<br><br>
Weve thought about camping but the weather is still unpredictable here right now, and with the kids being sick, I need access to electricity for the one kids breathing treatments and I need to stay close to medical care.

We signed up for that when we were in a bind 3 weeks ago, but didnt qualify cause at that time DF didnt have a job. Now he does, he just started work 1 1/2 weeks ago. But like a PP said, they take awhile to make a decision.<br><br>
Df should be home from work (had to call him home) in a few minutes and then we will head to the closest ER....they dont take our insurance, but I am not in the state of mind to go the 30 minute drive to one that does.
