Depression & Stress

Posted by cordeliaVorkosigan , 31 July 2012 · 73 views

Well, my pay check is being garnished for an old car loan. I surrendered the car to them a long time ago because I couldn't afford the payments. I have to file bankruptcy now. I don't make enough to pay my bills now. They are getting way too much every month. I hope to have it filed by the end of this month so they only affect two pay checks. I can't survive much longer than that. Stress over financial problems is getting to me. I couldn't sleep last night. I won’t loose my place. I will survive. We won't end up back in the shelter. It's just that I can barely keep gas in my car to go to work. One step forward and two back sometimes. This is temporary. After I file, I'll be so happy to be out from under the financial strain. That doesn't stop me from falling apart at times. Knowing I am strong enough to weather this storm too isn't enough to make me smile and be happy. I'm angry and miserable that I can't get us things we need. I'm angry that I cannot provide everything we need. I'm angry.
