Somebody PLEASE HELP ME, help in time of need: I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I

I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I learned that even though life is not always full of what you want, it does not always mean you should quit. I think that my will power for issues surrounding my life have definitely been put into perspective. Once I knew I set my mind to further myself educationally, personally and in a big life changing way, there is just no stopping me from achieving that goal. If I fail than I will just have to try, try, and try again.
On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for my family and myself, I thought it was going to be almost impossible.
I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to become in my future. I have always been excited about the medical field, diabetes particularly, and the medical office is the area which interests me most.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read about myself. I understand also that you have lots of requests that come your way throughout the year not just during the holidays. I am working on myself to make the best of my years to come and I really believe that my new year 2014/15 has something great waiting for me to keep me financially healthy. I will give back without question because I am one of the many out there that have fallen on trying times and looking for someone to just lend a helping hand. I am thankful for any kind of assistance and wish you and yours the best and greatest of faith, strength and love.
RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT-- I am in a very depressed, my anxiety is over the top and just DO NOT feel like me... I don't know what to do-- I have a 45 min. session talking to a therapist- which right now doesn't seem to help me.. I was approved for the gym and I been going but its NOT WORKING.. I went to see my dr. yesterday and still NO GOOD NEWS
I feel there is NO HOPE FOR ME and I don't know what to do, my life is on PAUSE or something its STUCK thought and felt like I was going to be ahead but in reality.. I'm just barely gliding by on tippy toes

MaaaaaaaaN.. what?? what is it?? what did I miss?? what am I missing?? where or what is it that I'm not getting?? UuuuGH, every time I get lost in my thoughts over these questions and NO ANSWERS to suffice what I feel...

Soooooo NOW: its from inside to GIVE UP.. OK- I GIVE UP--- I JUST GIVE UP.......... I won't ever be ahead I won't ever finish school, I won't even get to be healthy enough to even enjoy my life....... Uuuugh

CHRISTMAS HELP, PLEASE HELP MY FAMILY: Not sure if I post it right, might just be description, sorry if repost

Not sure if I post it right, might just be description, sorry if repost but very much in need....
I'm a disabled mother if five wonderful children. Recently I was told I have MS as well other health issues that have plagued me for the last two decades. Just recently I was also informed of a mass taking over 60% of my liver. We only have my husbands income and when I have the seizures he has to stay home without pay to care for me and the two of our five children that are too little to attend school. We have just applied for food stamps and heating assistance but were told there is a huge back up and it could take months to get the much needed assistance. We are so broke, and now the holiday is upon us. I had been saving every penny and had barely 200 dollars saved up for presents. But two days ago I was in a car accident, I slid on black ice and went off into a ditch, the tow truck to just pull it out was $135, and the front end is damaged so I have to pay for repairs with a $500 dollar deductible. I don't have anything anymore! I don't know what to do, most of the charities( ironically that I have devotedly given to for years) have November deadlines, so no assistance there. I don't have family other than the kids so no one to borrow from either. I just need alittle help, Please! My illness causes so many hardships and heartbreaks, my kids never complain but I know they wish our lives were better, that I was better, and they could have even a fraction if what the other kids at school have. I hate the fact that I am such a financial burden on everyone. I don't know how long I have left, I don't want them to have an empty tree and that be the last Christmas they remember with me. Can anyone help me? If you can, I don't know how to thank you! You will always be in our prayers. And if you can't then I wish you happy holidays for you and yours. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I need help for Christmas?I contacted my local salvation army food

I need help for Christmas?I contacted my local salvation army food pantries with no luck in help.They all state,to recieve any help you must apply by Dec 18th 2013.
I tried finding online sites for help but,seems they all give the option to donate but,no option to ask for help.Seems they all accept donations but,none explains how to recieve donations for help.All the sites won't let you give out your contact information to recieve help.How can one help another without any contact information to help them is beyond me.A person a can post on a site all day long "I need help for Christmas?"but,without giving a word of contact.No help will be given to that person in need.What can I do?How can anyone help a person in need without any type of contact information?
I'm not a greedy person to ask for sums of money.I careless about my self.I don't want a thing for Christmas other then seeing my wife & kids have a Christmas.As long as they are happy I'm fine.If I can't ask for money for my family?Can I ask for gifts instead?People feel more safe giving gift then money and I'm not greedy.I can really use the help?If you can mail (122) a gift (Warsaw) to my (St) family would help us in a big way to have a Christmas.I (Laporte,Indiana 46350) Godbless you all and a Merry Christmas and prayers to you all.
