I'm sorry to hear that you're having such a tough time of it. Don't give up, that is never the answer. I don't know if you mean that some events have happened to cause you to be struggling with the rent or if you are just barely making it on a normal basis. If you are struggling regularly to make the rent, it may be time to consider making some changes. You don't want to be in a situation where the least little thing will cause you to wind up without the necessitys of life. Maybe you should think about finding a roommate? If that's not possible, maybe you should consider finding a place a little less expensive. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news or anything, but it does concern me that you are just barely making your rent.
