It's their loss girl. I don't make a lot either and I routinely feel mad and anxious about never having any money. I don't even know where my college diploma is I'm that mad at it. I can't imagine even spending $5 on an Ikea frame to frame such a waste of time. But only in America are we ever able to feel education is a waste. My grandma didn't even go to middle school. Don't let your job or money consume you. I'm pretty poor too and life is a lot more than money. And I get how ridiculous that sounds. I think you'll be just fine.
Thanks for writing. I think I am just frustrated and depressed because there has been no personal growth for some time. I took a huge pay cut to be closer to my family. I haven't made any friends since I moved, and I haven't been on a date in years. I want to believe that things will change, but honestly there's a part of me that's already given up.
As someone who has depression, you sound like you might qualify for a clinic depression diagnosis. Do you have some form of health insurance? It might help to talk to a professional.
Ballerina - I hope your docs are able to find you a solution that doesn't require you to be on pain meds.
Remember when I had all that sinus pain from the infected tooth that needed to come out? Well, the antibiotics I was prescribed before got rid of the fever and chills but the sinus pain migrated from my cheekbone up to my brow bone. Now I'm on more antibiotics, mucinex, and 800 mg of Ibuprofen. If I don't take the ibuprofen every 8 hours as prescribed, the pain is almost debilitating. If it's not better by tomorrow, I'm supposed to call and get my treatment plan changed. I'm almost wondering if I need to go in for a CT scan to make sure nothing else is going on - the pain is very localized.
