Heart In desperate need of financial help

My husband has serious health issues. He had a liver transplant in 1994. He had a heart attack in October 2006. Both of his kidneys are shutting down. He is unable to work. Put in for SSDI & SSI. They lost the paperwork twice. Did all of the paperwork and have been waiting for over 2 years. I lost my job in April of 2007. We have sold everything. We have used credit cards in order to pay for my husband's medications. Without one of them, prograf, he would die. It costs about $600. All of our credit cards are maxed out. We have zero (0) income. I have put in resume's since April of 2007 and have had a few interviews but no luck yet. We are behind in our mortgage by 4 months. We are going to lose our home without help. I do not know how we will pay any of our bills now. I pray each day and constantly look for work. I try to help others by doing something nice for them, such as holding a door open etc. I have always been able to find work but this time it is so different. I am hopeful that we will touch someone's heart and they will help us. God Bless You All.

It hurts to read posts like yours... I simply don't know what to say, and there is not much that I can do to help, besides keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. You live in a beautiful area, quite close to the Kissimmee. Have you thought of possibility of running a B&B? I know that at this point this may seam like an idea out of this world... but sometimes an idea is that one thing that can get you going again.
In fact, my advice to anyone who feels like they are at the end of their rope... is to take a good, hard look at anything that is still positive in their life. Look at your abilities, your knowledge, your education, and even your hobbies. Make the list of things that you KNOW. That knowledge could be the answer to your troubles! Someone may need that knowledge. YOU are a goldmine of possibilities! You just have to tap into that resource. If you could earn some income as opposed to not earning any income at all? Would you try it? Shift your way of thinking from I can't find a job... to: If I can't find a job... I will create one! This is the time of opportunities! They are just a bit different opportunities. Believe in yourself. Everything happens for a reason, and you are strong enough to get through this.
God is right there with you, holding your hand through thick and thin. He will open that window, if all those doors are slammed in your face. Stay strong, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I agree w/humber if you cant find a job you can creat one even if you think it impossable or a crazy idea,I have been trying to find work aswell with no luck,then I love to bake so the idea came to mind to sell cakes being the stores charge an arm & leg and something I thought was a crazy idea >>>I already sold one and have orders for 3 more next month.take something you enjoy doing and find a way to make money in it.it is possible.I wish you luck.God Bless
