Things have not improved on losing my home to condemnation. But, there are a few spots of hope to keep me from just collapsing from the burden. First, the not so bright spots.
*The law firm where I knew I could get help was dissolving Friday, their last day. Two other attorneys said it would be a conflict of interest for them to represent me.
*People I thought were true friends no longer stay in contact. If I call to enquire about their health and catch up, these friends never ask how I am doing. One cannot stand that I am getting a disability but her husband has had one since he was 50 and is still doing manual labor all the time...under the table. Another has asked for years why I just don't....anything to do with money...get a loan....go get new tires.... She has no concept that money issues are why people don't do things like go to the doctor. I am not and have never hinted for money when talking to these people.
One friend listened to me several years ago, complaining about money problems. She finally offered to give me money. I was just horrified and refused it. Now, I would accept...lol.
*Alignment problem means I need new tires 3 months after I bought new ones. Yes, I had car aligned and tires balanced! Yes, I complained. More later, another post!
*I cannot sleep. Actually, it is more like I don't go to bed and set the alarm to get up, missing lots of sleep.
*I cannot afford to get the melatonin I like and need. Natrol is the best, the one in the purple bottle. Try it; you will like it.
*Maybe the prospect of not being here is making me not germinate things.
*Still cannot afford the lift chair I need. Legs and feet are losing feeling, a bad sign.
***Brightest spot. Someone that I don't even know who follows my blog contributed to my paypal fund. Thank you sooo much.
*The sinus problem that was plaguing me for a week has subsided a bit.
*I decided to no longer deal with guy who did alignment, but go straight to corporate since this was a national chain.
*No one has come to my door to evict me.
*I treated myself to a $1.98 strawberry plant. The $7.95 plants were full of strawberries already but too expensive. I have seeds to plant, but needed this plant to give m some hope.
*I will germinate plants and then repot in containers.
*Potatoes are growing from the compost where I was going to plant tomatoes. Since I have no idea what a potato plant looks like, I pulled up one plant and found a pea-sized potato along with the original potato put in the compost. Now, I will just put potato eyes in that raised bed.
That's it. Just me, worrying around here, spinning my wheels as far as solving the problems besetting me.
Like I said, suggestions are welcome in email. I have tried everything mentioned, even reverse mortgage. Other comments are welcome here, concerning my problem with condemnation or anything else..
