After her son was laid off in September, Kuras started giving him 30% of her monthly income so he doesn't default on his mortgage. Kuras, 69, lives with her son, his wife and their 4-year-old grandson in Pawtucket.
I'm on a pension. I'm trying to help him out, but it's hard. He doesn't want to lose the house.
I can't pay my bills. I've cut down on food. I used to buy clothes for the baby, but now I can't do it like I used to. I don't have as much money as I did. I buy less and I don't go anywhere.
I feel bad, but what can I do? I've got problems too.
