Terri, Does you state have a children’s insurance program you can apply for? I know some state’s have that. My youngest daughter has adhd, sensory processing disorder, tourette’s, non verbal learning disability, and anxiety disorder and dypraxia.
my oldest daughter we are having tested for add and dyslexia. and i myself take lexapro for pmdd. so i understand what you are going through.
the gals here are pros at saving money on groceries………i am just learning. i have found that if i go to the websites of my areas grocery stores and find out what is on sale, and print it out then i am way ahead. i saved $65.00 off my grocery order yesterday by shopping sales and using coupons.
It does take some time and effort, but well worth it. I’ve decided that if I don’t have a coupon, or it’s not on sale I am not buying it anymore unless it’s something like Milk.
Although my store has the buy 6 gals of milk, get one free program. I am hoping to be able to achieve the kind of savings some of the gals her do on groceries…….they are truly awesome at it, and have it down to a science.
The other thing is have you heard of Angel Food Ministries? You can order food through them. You spend $30 and get at least double that in groceries (mostly meat).
Anybody qualifies, you do not have to be under a certain amount of income to qualify. Not every state has it, but you can check and see if Texas does. http://www.angelfoodministries.com Kelly

posts as I possibly can and thought I would take a minute and
introduce myself. My name is Terri. I love in the DFW area of Texas.
I am divorced and have two children that I work hard to support.
girl is 11 and my boy is 9. She is talanted and gifted so that means
shes 11 going on 15 and has an attitude to match. My boy is ADHD with
dyslexia and thats probably pretty self explanatory.
Two kids at two
extremes. I do get child support. Dad hasnt seen them in about 6 yrs
but he sends Christmas and birthday.
Hes an alcoholic. My daughter
and I both suffer from anxiety and depression. I live in the house I
grew up in and without too much detail have been
recently disowned by
my own mother and my dad follows her strong will.
I have one terrific
brother who I love dearly. He has a terrific job working with
computers. An example of what he does: All those cool tvs they put
into walmart at the counters etc., to give you something to watch
while waiting in line…he helped to set up and configure all that.
He used to make trips to the 84th floor of the twin towers to help
Cantor and Fitzgerald every few years.
Ive had a difficult time
financiallly, especially the past 6 months or so and when your mother
disowns you instead of offering some sort of parental support it
hurts. I cant afford Ins on my kids but I get them what they need.
They eat before I do. I went very much in the hole and am trying
deperately to get back on track.
Im tired of Ramen noodles and
spaghetti. I keep in my cabinets only what we need. The barest of
food and essentials.
We do eat out sometimes. I
can buy a Ready to go
pizza at Little Ceasars for $5.00 for a large cheese or pepperoni.
THat less than most Red Barons are and its cooked and fresh. I make a
great and simple potato soup…
I am looking for ideas for meals and saving,,,Ive found some great
I did find a program that will pay for a childs eye
glasses. My daughter broke hers and we didnt have the money to go in.
We found a program that referred me back to her school and since we
get free lunches we qualified. They paid the entire amount fo my
$420.00!! They allowed her to get transition
lenses and scratch proof, etc. I would love to use coupons they way
some of you guys do.
All three of us have to see a psych for all of
our medications. Mine is paxil. $4.00 at Walmart, My sons is Ritalin
which has just recently been put on the $4.00 list and my daughters
is Zoloft-not on the $4.00 list but I have fopund that with some
you can request a bigger dosage pill if its scored to break in half
and you can actually save a few dollars that way, so instead of
getting 25 mil, I ask for 50 mil and break them in half.
has the $4.00 list and Walgreens says they will meet the price even
though they dont have the list.
Im here and eager to learn…
Thanks for all the ideas so far.
