Cant keep up with bills

Elberton, Georgia

My title says it all. I have more month than money. We are out of just about everything. I wrote an email to contact us on the Fingerhut website and told them I've been on hospice for over a year and my bill never comes down, not even by a penny. I told them I can't make anymore payments due to financial hardship, that I can't make ends meet. Picture is mine. My pic is ugly, so I used this one

Do you have a food bank or Salvation Army place that you can go too for help? I wouldn't worry about the Fingerhut bill and would cancel the account.

We do but SIL, my daughter's husband is too proud to use one. He filled in with a little food last night.

I am sure you can receive some help and get most of what you need from some charitable organization. It takes a bit of searching, but I do believe help is out there for those who cannot pay for what they need.

I could if my SIL would lower his pride some. He has too much pride to go to a food bank or food stamps.

No don't worry if you can't make that payment, then you simply cannot Charlene.

It won't happen. Every month it gets like this but it is temporary.

Most of us can't keep up with the bills these days! It is good that you contacted someone to let them know your situation It seems many of us don't want to use our photo if we don't have too @OreoBrownie

Did they even care or did they want their money anyway. When my first husband was dying from cancer he owed money to this one place and my friend that was a lawyer told me not to pay any money on any of his bills or I would owe the money. They have to make a payment plan with you. They can not touch your Social Security.
