My financial armageddon has come. I've been slowly slipping into debt with my medications that are over and above what I bring in in a month along with housing and feeding my sons and I. I've done everything I can to keep us afloat and am happy to say I just managed to get back to work. The back to work transition went smoothly enough but there have been some extra costs like work clothes, paying for parking etc. That along with a son graduating has put me under. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to cut off my internet in a couple of days unless I can figure something out.
I know I'm not much different than anyone getting through these tough times but my circumstances have been extreme. Just because we escape cancer with our lives doesn't mean we escape all the aftermath. I've tried so hard, to be a good mother and to take care of my financial responsibilities. I want nothing more than to pay down my debts and be able to get ahead one day. I'm not sure if I'll ever get the opportunity. I escaped near homelessness 2 years ago but have run out of options now. Getting well enough to get back to work has been my focus but I'm still only able to work a very limited amount. It's just too little, too late.
My resourcefulness has finally hit a brick wall.
