I Need Help Paying My Bills

I need assistance with paying my bills. Up until about a year and half ago I was able to draw food stamps. Unfortunately the job that I had at the time required that I drive 25 miles each way back and forth to work. With the ever increasing cost of gas I was forced to move to a job that was closer to home. It was costing me about $30 a work week just to get back and forth to work. At this new job I make 25 cents less per hour but I work more hours. This resulted in me making every bit of $11 more a month than I was before. With this $11 they said that I was making too much for food stamps. I went from getting $200 a month....to ZERO. I realize that of course these things are based on how much you make. But I can't understand why the think that with that additional $11 a month I no longer need any help ! This $200 or so now comes out of my own pocket and is less money that I have to pay on my bills. It is my goal to make it to the point where my car is paid off and I can have some room to breathe. Thank you for taking time to read my story. - See more at: http://www.crowdrise.com/INeedHelpPayingBills/fundraiser/cherymaldonado#sthash.DhQFbGeF.dpuf
