I wish there was a smilie for sobbing.

I woke up in pain and also with a headache that a tv commercial couldn't cure.

Finally , the pain calmed down. I was going to get a ride to the PO to pick up a package and to drop some off-surprise pressies for some very special YT angels.,

Well, I went online to see if maybe I could splurge on some bismarks when I see that my bank account is in the red for an awful amount.

I owe taxes because my job had required all kinds of overtime and well, claiming 1/1 was NOT what I should have done...had I known I was going to be working crazy hours....but what can you do..hindsite is 20/20

Anyways, I am recovering and THOUGHT when I explained to the IRS why I can't continue to pay, there was an understanding that, OK, not working because of an accident is not your fault. When we have a job, we will continue with payments..and of course, the penalties and interest would continue to accrue, but that's OK, I understand that.

Apparently not. Between bank overdraft fees, bounced checks(and those fees incurring) and draining my account dry, I am in the red, which will only increase...

*cries*

Lil, as serious as a heart attack.

And lets not talk about the check that Mr Bush sent that was just deposited and that's why we had written all those checks

Oh gosh, hun! What're you doing to do??
14 yrs ago - Friday 5/2/08 - 11:25:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ugh, awful.

How long until you think you can return to work?
14 yrs ago - Friday 5/2/08 - 11:26:28 AM EST (GMT-5)

Nothing. There is not a damn thing I can do.

Crying helps. And looking at the bright side and saying, well at least it's paid off is ok, but bounced car insurance checks don't let the bright side shine through.

Plain and simply, I am going to have to take it day to day and count my blessings.

At least another 8 weeks.

Guys, it wasn't just the plow and removal of my spleen that I am just healing from.

While I was in the hospital, I caught MRSA and some of my abdominal wall was removed...

It's going to be awhile. But I am healing fine. Thanks goodness the vanomycin worked for me, sometimes it doesn't

Lil...I am home now.

The irony of working in a nursing home/assisted living for 20+ years and then catching MRSA in a hospital is not lost on me

I am still waiting on the state to get back to me to see if I can get unemployment. I got a letter in the mail a week ago saying they are "investigaing" whatever the hell that means.

My medical bills and meds are being paid for due to the accident...so what's REALLY needed is taken care of.

Everything else, well, somehow it all works out. It usually does.

*repeats 100 times*

For obvious reasons, I can't do my old job anymore..and I loved what I did

*sighs*

This too shall pass-

How to people without faith endure times like this when it seems to hard to cope with!?

one step at a time.
gosh i'll never understand how you do it falc. i'll never understand how great your gift must be to have this big of a price tag.
14 yrs ago - Friday 5/2/08 - 11:56:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
is it because of the lifting?

can you go somewhere else where just your skills are the important part?

has your employer fired you? that may need to happen to get unemployment started
