It's been three and a half months since I received child support. Three and a half months. I don't know what's going on with this. Seriously, something has got to change, or... well, I just don't know. I'm not getting any money from that, even though the county is supposed to be collecting for me, my paycheck today was only $600 for two weeks, and next week, I'm only scheduled three days.

It's going to be a very very lean month again. I'm behind on bills again, too. I can't do this. I just can't. Meds... I need them, but the cost of doctor visits and prescriptions and all that stuff is just killing me. The poor can't afford to live. We should all just die off like we're supposed to, right?

Ugh, I'm so sorry, your situation just sounds terrible, frustrating and scary. I'm working on getting some auction work up for you, but right now the sever that houses my art is down and has been all evening. :/

You've laid out your finances and things are extremely tight; is there any sort of prescription assistance programs that you can sign up for? You're probably above the threshold on a lot of assistance but I've read that help with prescriptions is easier to get.

Hand to mouth living is stressful, I'm doing it myself at the moment and it does sometimes feel like society is stacked against you unless you were born on third base.

*hug* I have no useful advice. But loads of sympathy!!!!

I know what you mean about meds. I am really lucky that right now my doctor's been scoring free samples for me. Although that means our predatory pharmaceutical industry is making so much profit they can easily give the stuff away - to doctors! Heaven forbid they give it to the *patients*.

I sometimes wonder if we'll all make it to when this so-called health care plan is supposed to kick in, and if so, is it really going to be an improvement? Or just one more fee??

Ah, Rana. I am so sorry. You know you are one of my all-time favorite fandom goddesses of awesome. Not to mention such a fun person to visit! Please hang in there... I feel so sad that things are stressing you. *hugs you some more*
