My mom is 44 years old and she is depressed. She and my little sister live by themselves. In February she quit her job and they currently have no income at all. She has been living off of her tax refund. She was supposed to use this money to buy a car, (she had been walking to her place of work because it was close by) but instead she used it all on bills and now she doesn't even have enough to buy a car. She is almost broke and will soon have no money to pay her bills. She doesn't even want to try. She lays in her bed all day and refuses to put job applications in anywhere. I recommended that she try signing up on disability but she wouldn't do that. She won't leave the house. Won't even go grocery shopping. I don't know how to help her. If she doesn't do something, and soon, she's not gonna have the money to pay her bills even.
I want to help her but I don't know how. I have very little income, a part-time job, and I barely scrape by myself every month. I live in an apartment building that is strict on how many people stay with you, so it's not like I can move her in. I have no idea how to help her, or make her want to help herself. She won't even try anymore.
