My family's struggle: We're shutting your electric off -

My family’s struggle: We’re shutting your electric off

Today was going so well and now it’s been flush down the proverbial toilet. In yet another epic parenting fail, AEP has come out to shut us off due to my inability to keep up with the bill. 

This is my fault and I’m working really hard to address these problems. 

To AEP’s credit, the technician that has come out to shut us off was very nice and treated us with respect.  I appreciate that.

Now that the boys are in school full time again, I can devote my time to bettering our situation.  My new job is going to begin paying off in the immediate future and all I have to do is make it through until then.

This is not something unique to my family.  There are  countless families out there going through the same or similar struggle. 

We are hoping beyond hope that we can get a medical certificate to get us through the month of September.

Please say a prayer for my family and all the others out there going through similar struggles.  Thank you so much and remember that if you are struggling, you aren’t alone.  I’m sharing this with you to not only raise awareness for my family but for yours as well.

Amanda Larson a medical certificate gives you 30 days. It has to be signed by a doctor but it prevents shut-off and buys you time to pay the bill.

Never heard of a medical certificate,


keeping you and yours in my prayers.


shawneerenee31 thank you very much.  🙂


MikeNYvetteKennedy thanks Vet. No worries, we always figure things out.  Wise words though.  🙂


I am sending my prayers your way. ((((((BIG HUGS))))) to your family.


I am sorry that you guys are going through this and I am even more sorry that there is nothing I can do to help.  I love you guys and just stay strong…they say what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger so you guys should be able to lift the Empire State Building right now and they also say it gets darker before the dawn, so hopefully the light at the end of the tunnel will mean great things and is just around the corner. <3
