This is a bit urgent...

I know I haven't posted here in forever.  I haven't had a lot to say.  Today I do.  This is pretty important, on a personal level:

I have been supporting my mother and her expenses for three years.. rent, utilities, the whole thing.. all atop my own.  The money I was using for this - my late father's IRA - has run dry as of this summer.  I am now being compelled to take a second job just to keep myself above water.  I'm not sure how long I'll be able to sustain this situation ... a few months at most before my body likely rebels and breaks.  I'm not in my twenties anymore, after all.

I strongly doubt I'll get any response from this, I know few -can- help, and even fewer -will-.  But... I'm putting this out here:

If I can get help for Mother's bills, in some way, from the community, or anyone that can help, she and I will be eternally grateful.

She will be willing to make something for anyone that does help.  The bigger, the better.  She does have a lot of craft skills she can pull upon.

If you can't help, or don't feel like it, I will understand.   (Though two hundred posts of "no, can't/won't help", won't be that useful)
If you -can- help, contact me here, or off-list:

I am hoping that I won't end up having to move in with her, quintupling my commute time, and not really saving much money either.

Sorry to worry you all.
