My name is Kelly obrien and I am a mother of 2 beautiful boys. After my 2nd son was born unfortunately I went into a very bad post partum depression, for months I refused to say that something was wrong with me and pushed through what I had to do. I went to work 5 days a week at a deli at 430am so I didn't have to pay for babysitters. But eventually the depression took over and I couldn't function. I had completely burnt myself out and it was affecting my family. I had no choice but to leave my job and seek treatment. My fiance gets to cover the bills but it's just not enough. We have fallen behind on bills and the electric bill has gotten out of hand. I have tried to make a payment agreement with them after i had my rate lowered due to being approved for food stamps but all they would allow was an additional 220 on top of my monthly bill until I caught up further on my bill. But when I don't have anything an extra 220 on top is impossible. I have no one in my life to help out financially and my church went on fire so I can't ask for help when they need all the help right now. I'm just so scared to lose my electric with two young children. I'm jus hoping for a little help no matter how big just so we can have a chance to catch up and start fresh with one less problem. I'm in the process of finding correct medication for myself and this is all I am focused on and I'm petrified.
I pray that someone may be able to help in any way possible no matter how small and when we get back on our feet I can do the same in return.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story
