I am an employee for the VA. I have been struggling financially for the past couple of years. I have gone through a counseling money management company that is assisting me in my debt. The reason I got to where I am is because I had to charge groceries when the gasoline got so expensive a couple of years ago…which of course is back to being expensive. Not receiving cost of living raises is going to place me either in bankruptcy or losing my house. I am a single mother with an elderly parent, teen, and grandkids living at home with me. What will become of them?

I’m so sorry, Gloria. I wish you the best of luck.
