I have been reading your blogs for some time now and enjoy them very much. I've felt your pain, and yes, ----felt some jealousy at your success!! (Please forgive me).
I am a 63-year old widow on Social Security and I have a parttime job teaching mentally challenged adults which I enjoy very much.
Unfortunately I am unable to buy medical insurance due to a condition which disallows me from buying any. A year ago I had two surgeries, a D and C, and by for worse, a colon resection due to diverticulitis. I had been pleased without myself for being able to live on $20,000 previous to these surguries, but now life seems like a nightmare. I pay ten creditors $25.00 per month in addition to having to buy a used car (my last one literally blew up). I have heard from horrible creditors and have learned to deal with them, but I know I will never live long enough to pay off the approximately $18,000 I still owe. I assume that when I die this debt will be paid from the sale of my house. If anyone has faced the dreariness of a situation I would like to hear about it, in particular, how you stay upbeat about it all. In the meantime, thank you for all the enjoyment you have given me as I have read your blogs and I am looking forward to the friendships developed here.
Where Do I Begin?
