You know what I could do without right now?

All the drama! I have a decent amount of family drama going on right now, not to mention some friend drama. I'm going to be taking a break from the affected parties... we'll see if it's temporary or permanent. But I am not dealing with their crap right now- screw that. I could write a novel about the issues I'm having with these people right now, but I'm not going to. Let me just say it's very disappointing, and also very frustrating. It has nothing to do with the last post either, this is whole new drama. (*sigh*)

Then, there's the issue with money. We'll survive but I'm really not comfortable with how tight it is at the moment. My medical expenses right now are pretty hefty, not to mention I haven't been working so we're out that money too. I mean normally with me not working it's not a big deal, but add on all my medication and appointments in addition to the loss of income? And we've lost about $1,000 a month in total. Ouch.

On top of that, we had to take our car in to get it worked on. Thankfully my mother is helping out with the cost of that, and loaning us her car until we get ours back (hopefully by Friday!) but it still sucks. We never have to ask anyone to help us, we either work something out, cut back, or do without... but we always figure something out. I don't like asking for help. But in this I had no choice- we need our car. I'm hoping there's nothing serious going on with it right now, because that'd just be the icing on the cake.

So everything feels like it's falling to rot with the drama, the car issues, the money issues, the Clot of Destruction... but I'll live, and everything will be okay just as long as I have my husband and we don't lose the baby. I really really hope we don't lose the baby.

I remember so well what it was like to lose my income and have the added cost of the high risk doctor and the diabetes stuff. So miserable. We found a way though. One of the things we did was auction off my husbands Transformers on ebay. We made ummm I think 2600 or 3400 it was a lot. And came in very handy. Not to mention it freed up a lot of space we needed for the baby. I don't know if you ever took my advice and joined Swagbucks, but with you being on bedrest and probably spending a fair amount of time browsing the internet- that can really add up. I would suggest joining AND I would also suggest putting a button on your blog. For everybody that joined and used Swagbucks you would get 1,000 points. Which really helps. I use my swagbucks on amazon. You have a lot of followers and I can tell you swagbucks is legit. I was suspicious at first but my sister and I have been using it for a year.

When I was on bedrest with my son I was forced to quit my job also. I just called the hospitals that I owed bills to and explained that I unexpectedly lost my job and they have financial assistance or charity people. If I am not working, we have always qualified. I had to mail them a lot of paperwork like W2s and bank statements. I also had to show my termination letter. Also, with your meds, I have found that the by mail places are cheaper, I use Freedom Prescriptions.

Praying for you to stay strong, and for that baby to stay stronger. And hoping that you can find some peace and true rest in the midst of all the drama. Hugs x

Finances are so freakin' stressful. My husband and I had the epic battle of all battles last night because I want to go off work earlier than disability will cover. My job sucks and I cry EVERYDAY over something my boss does. CLOT OF DESTRUCTION WILL BE DETROYED I hope you know that somewhere...cause a baby that has such a kick ass mom is gonna ninja that clot out of his space!!
