I agree, this is what what I would say too. It's up to you to tell people what is going on for you and ask for help and extra support. Tell them why and express your gratitude at having so many people to be there for you. People come out of the wood work when people are in need and ask for help. I can see no reason that anyone should not say what they need and give when they can to other peoples needs when they can too.
