Thus far, no agency has really helped us

since I still have my job, full time and we “only have 1 child”. Apparently, agencies are not set up to help folks like us. The thinking seems to be that if you have any income at all, you make “too much money” (We have actually been told this) and also that we “only have 1 child” – WTF???? As if we had 6 kids, it would be better? Cold is cold.

I did contact the energy company today and they are going to accept less $$$$ this month (same due date) and then divide up the remainder and add it onto the future bills, month by month. So, in the future, we have even higher energy bills! Yippee!!!!
