by the grace of god and the charity of friends, both real and pretend, the cable is reconnected and Tom’s van is fixed (as far as the heater is concerned). I am so grateful to those who can help and willingly do so. We have benefited from much needed cash, groceries and gift cards. Tom has work this week but this is a long process since we are so far behind in everything. Our credit rating is tanked, we want to move to somewhere less expensive but can’t pass the credit checks at the moment, and cheaper rent means having to pay utilities, here we only pay gas for cooking and electric. It is all so muddled and mixed up it makes our heads hurt and I still need to do our taxes, even though he made considerably less money this past year we have to count gifts as income and we will still have to pay tax April 15th.
Not that any of you need to read all of this but it explains my next statement. I am depressed. And yes I am off my meds—-Tom needs his more and we could barely afford that this month at 135$ a month for one and 68$ for the asthma inhaler , his involve his physical health, mine are just for my mental health. But when I am off the meds I don’t cope as well with the little things that crop up.
