If you raised your kids right, they won't mind at all to help out. You've been paying for them for decades, so there' no issue. An ungrateful little asshole is different though.

It happens, my pops needed about 500 a few years back and I just told him to keep it.

He's helped me out enough.

weve done that several times now...she had it to spare for three weeks.
she saves her money and has no kids to have to pay for.

think of it as the universe found a way for you.
as long as you pay it back there should be no reason to feel bad.
hes not a baby anymore, hes living real life and is probably VERY HAPPY to have been able to help you.

the ONLY thing that should upset you over this situation is if you dont pay him back.

be thankful.

Had no other source to borrow from.

I will pay him back, but I feel so bad about having to ask him
for help.

Bingo.
If you live long enough and experience enough rough breaks, you will get to watch your kids help you.
If you also live through that, you will get to see your kids be helped by paying them back.

Re: I FEEL SHAME: I am 62 and had to borrow $500 from son to survive this month
I randomly mail things my mom needs so she doesn't have to ask, because she won't. That makes it hard because I never know exactly what she needs. There are times I go without just to make sure she's ok. We should take care of our parents. If I had my way, it would be like in other cultures where the whole family lives together and share responsibility and resources.

So if you have a son who wants to help you, let him. Really. It's okay.

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

This is so sad to read about a father having to borrow from his child but this is what our elected officials are doing to us.

Someone in D C is reading this thread and just rubbing their hands together with a big smile on their face I bet.

If you were my old man Id tell you to stop being a mooch and pull yerself up by your goddamn boot straps.

I didnt ask to be born, raised or any of that shit, it was done against my will, I dont owe my parents a single dime for screwing and having me.

For the last couple of years of my father's life I took him out to nice restaurants about 3 times a week.

It was the least I could do for all the years he took me camping and fishing.

Everyone needs a little help sometimes, don't get too down on yourself. I just recently had to pick up some part time landscaping work to make it, my personal business is faultering pretty badly.
Don't feel ashamed!!!
