I need help, I dont know what to do. I am 17 years old and live in california. My problem is that my mom got layed off right before christmas and she has not been able to get a job. she is a nurse and cant fiind a job. she is also disabled, but she cant get disability because she has not worked long enough to get disability. my parents are divorced and before they got divorced the owned there own business, but they made the checks in my dads name, and because they did that my mom cant get money from that. and now she is starting to get very low on how much money she has. I really dont know what to do. I know everyone here really cant get my mom a job, but this has just been stressing, and i needed to vent.
