A blues song would explain how I am feeling....

September 21st, 2009 at 08:51 am

I wanted to do a clever title, and yet, I felt I should hold onto that thought and save it for another blog entry.

I checked my bank account today and due to my spending over the weekend, I will be a little under $100 dollars short for the bills I need to pay this month. Sigh. I am stressed about this because my bf doesn't have money to give to me, and because my bank account doesn't allow me to use my atm card because of the whole theft/fraud issue. Sigh. And I STILL haven't received the fraud info from the bank. That upsets me because they have records of some man calling pretending to be me or something, and then hanging up. Sigh. I also haven't received any calls from SSA about the fraud. Grrr....so I am still dealing with this a few weeks after the fact.

I feel like things are falling apart.....I am worried about money and the prospects of getting a part-time job in an area where unemployment is 10% is not very good. Sigh. I don't know where me and my bf will go....he has some family things to take care of, and I really do worry that once the storm passes, he may decide to move out and he may decide that he doesn't even want to be in a relationship. I am feeling crappy physically, and what I want to buy to feel healthy, I cannot afford. And, my apt is a mess. Like, seriously. I am frustrated at how messy it is. All of this plus a higher workload is stressing me out.

I wish I could afford a massage, but usually my muscles are so tight that massages really hurt me. Is that normal?

I am just trying to take it easy and hopefully things will get better.

    Best wishes! I was at our local mall this weekend and saw several signs for stores that are hiring part time help. I'm sure there are opportunities out there...if you look.

    Have you tried flylady (I think it's dot net) for the house-cleaning stuff? Also on there she has a section for getting your finances in order as well.

    You can do this.

    Is anything you bought this weekend returnable?

    Panic time means it is time to stop and breathe!

    Reassess your resources and see if playing a game of 'changing around the order of things' can get you out of the corner you are in. Do you have anything you can sell to come up with the shortage? Blood? Loan from a parent?

    Good luck to you. If there's something we can help you with let us know!

    Tackle the mess. That will give you a sense of acomplishment and will lift your spirits to see how nice it looks once its tidy! And, who knows, you might find some inspiration as to a solution!

    What about a hot bath? With candles, incense, and maybe even flower petals? I find that they can be cheaper and more effective than massages that you are too tense for.
