That's an old pic. 

I've been in a personal situation very similar to hers (only worse) so her request comes off like she's just lazy. Plus she said she likes to cook. There are people on etsy that sell baked goods for money. I'd give her some advice, but that's the most she's going to get.

Bisa can:
a) start a home daycare in her apt w/ a few kids to get some extra money
b) get a full time job w/ benefits such as med insurance to get help for her depression
c) suck it up and live in mom's apartment--atleast mama isn't actually living there
d) get a job on the busline and drop the cable.  ( I have a Roku--saves lots of $$)

In short Bisa can grow up, act like an adult and earn some money for her family.

She has cable hol up where was that info?

She needs a job in this day and age only middle aged well off people can successfully live with 1 income

She needs to move to a cheaper part of town (hood) that's it

And I guarantee she gets more money from the govt because she has a baby so at least they can eat

From the link in OP Bisa whined she has a $150 cable bill

This past month my fiance Erick and I moved with our 8 month old daughter from the West Side of Chicago to the Northwest suburbs, about 25 miles North of Chicago. Despite not having very much money (I'm a stay-at home Mom), we made the costly jump from “the hood” to “the burbs” in the interest of our daughter's safety. I'm sure I don't need to detail Chicago's crime rates for you, the news is doing a bang-up job of that already.

We made this move thinking it would *slightly* more expensive than living in the city, but worth it in the long run. My mom had offered us the use of her car for Erick to commute to work, so that we might be able to save some money to buy our own car. Well wouldn't you know it, that fell through, and we had to buy a car 2 weeks after we moved, in order for Erick to not be fired for “lack of reliable transportation”. We had about $1,000 saved at the time, and had to put all of that plus an additional $250 that we literally did not have (they held the check for a week until we did) down as a deposit on the car. In addition, the first payment of the car insurance ended up costing $150 more than the other installments, again a down payment of money that we did not have. We still haven't purchased the $55 city sticker, because we can't afford it and I'm praying that we don't get a ticket.

After paying all this money that we couldn't afford for a car, we have no money left for our bills. This month's rent is $1208, and after that is paid, we have $26. Just $26.

We still have to pay a $225 gas bill (from our old house), as well as our phone bill ($186), Comcast ($150), not to mention gas for the car and money for incidentals (laundry, toiletries, diapers, pet food, etc). We are already on food stamps, but that doesn't go very far because we have to also buy formula for the baby, and my 17 year old brother is also staying with us right now.

We have now realized that we can't stay in the apartment that we just moved to, because my Mom (whom I have an incredibly strained relationship with) retains ownership of it and comes and goes as she pleases. When I confronted her about this last week, she informed me that it was still her house (though she now lives in a different apartment in the complex), that she would continue to do as she pleased, and if I took issue with it my family and I were “free to vacate the premises”. Essentially, she was letting me know that my house is not my own (despite the rent that we pay), and if we did not submit to her wishes, we could kick rocks. That is the sort of relationship we have, and I'm sure it's understandable why I wouldn't want someone with that attitude randomly popping up while I'm trying to go about my day. SleepyWe still want to live in the suburbs of course, but we now need to come up with enough money for a deposit/1st month's rent in order to move again, on top of all of our other bills.

 Needless to say, all of this is taking a toll on our family. Erick already works 2 jobs for a total of 63 hours per week, and he gets to see his daughter for maybe 2 hours each day. I have been battling severe depression and anxiety on/off for the past 10 years, and due to insurance being totally sh*tty, I can't see a doctor until we get married (and I get coverage thru him) next year. Obviously, stressing about money is not healthy for anyone, much less someone with my issues. It is taking a serious toll on my mental health, and lately I have been getting more and more depressed, to the point where I am literally crying myself to sleep because I don't know what to do. I have thought of suicide recently, but it's not because I want to die. It's because I can't envision a way out of this hole and sometimes I think that not waking up would at least be less stressful than this.

 

Please help us. Even $1 helps, and the money that you donate will go towards paying off our bills, moving to a less anxiety-filled environment, and maybe giving Erick a day off so that he might be able to spend some quality time with our daughter.

nvm.  yeah the bish is a mess.

why do they have to wait until next year to get married? she needs insurance because she's depressed, suffers anxiety, and suicidal, but that takes a backseat to a real wedding??? ConfusedConfusedif you don't take your ass to the court house.
