  1. I have just 1 question ! What is it like not to live payday to payday? Literally I got paid Friday & it’s gone . I don’t get government assistance at all . I’ve been a single mom since the day I found out I was pregnant. I work hard to give my daughter better than what I had . And not material things just by being there as much as I can. But I have to admit I have failed her as a mother. She is a miracle & deserves so much better than what I have given her . I can’t even keep food on the table sometimes. So my question is what is it like not to livepayday to payday ?
