      If you are comfortable with answering:

      How do you get poor enough to have utilities shut off, but not qualify for help?

      My ex and I were self-employed and he spent money hand over fist (he made plenty) on stuff other than the water bill and surprise, surprise – it got shut off. And he had no intention of turning it back on….. I got a loan from my dad for the immediate “turn the water back on” – and then went to work at a temporary job (it was at a garbage dump, but as I had no way of taking a shower prior to interview I couldn't be picky) – sent him the whole paycheck for a week and we were good….

      There are ways to keep your utilities on – you may need to think “outside the box” but don't despair.
