here and there
It's the holiday season and everyone is supposed to be so happy, but my just life seems to be getting worse. It started when I got a notice of eviction. Then the clutch in my truck blew out. Then I over-drew my account to pay for the parts to fix it. (Which really irks my bosses) And now a close friend of mine is in ICU and probably won’t even make it long enough for me to visit him after work. On top of all this I still have no idea where I'm gonna come up with the money for Christmas... How manly would it be if I were to curl up into a little ball and cry until New Years?

Yes, but if the rain doesn't stop, you end up drowning...

As Raiderette said, you can only go so far down, before you have to start looking up.

You have friends here to support you.

If you have a job, why aren't you able to afford rent?

It's complicated...
The house was my mother's and then it was forclosed on because she became disabled and couldn't work to pay for it. Then I was trying to change it over to my name and moved into the house to take care of my mom and long story short, things didn't work out and I get to move again.

That sucks. Sorry to hear that. Look on the bright side...you have a job and won't be going hungry! That's more than a lot of people can say.

Have you tried contacting legal aide? With the disability and everything else, maybe there's a way to stall this and give you some time to either make things work or find someplace else to live.

Also, have tried talking to HR or a friendly boss to see if there's anything the bank can do by way of a loan to cover your od's? If talking to them is not your cup of tea, do you have an Employee Assistance Program or something similar? The one at our fi is totally confidential and they can link you up with all different kinds of help. The help is out there. Don't be afraid or ashamed to ask for it. We've all been there at some time or another.

Good luck!

I'm surprised that the bank isn't working with you. If they haven't sold it yet, usually they're foaming at the mouth to get a property out of REO. Tell them you'll assume the mortgage and pay lawyer fees to get it out of hoc.

I agree with Truffle Royale. You may need to look for help in places you wouldn't normally look to get through this rough spot.

As far as Christmas presents go......who gives a poo if you have things to give this year! I hope that the people in your life will b understanding enough that you don't have to feel bad. Try and make this a creative Christmas where you do small favors for people instead of "gifts".

Hope you feel better soon (Hugggggggggggs)

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Do the best you can do, Guy, and don't worry about the rest. Try to think about what you CAN do and the positives in your life. We are all blessed who have a job, food to eat and shelter.
You can always give certificates for Christmas - "This is good for one trip to the movies redeemed during 2006" or something else that person would like or maybe needs to have done. Homemade gifts are okay too. We'll be making a number of cakes for Christmas presents this year. Everyone has unexpected company and could use the extra food.

Thanks for all the support... I'm actually feeling quite a bit better. As far as the house goes, it's already over and done with. There is really no reason to keep it, I was planning on moving (to a different state) before everything happened with my mom and the house. and so now I'm following my plan and will be moving Mid-March. The only problem is where to live from now to then...

I am sure that a friend could put you up for a couple of months. Have you asked anyone? Any other relatives in the area?

Hang in there, things will improve.

Just keep plugging away, one day at a time. March will be here before you know it, you'll be moved and getting lost in a new city

My motto is "It could always be worse...", and then I think up something really bizarre, like "...I could have hair growing out off all my moles", or "...I could have been kidnapped by Hari Krishna's and forced to wear orange all day."
It usually makes me feel better!

I know exactly what is missing for me, but I am not even going to go there with this crowd. I am the biggest Scrooge ever this year and that is horrible.
But I hope things get better for you Nunz, I really do.

Don't be scrooges. Turn on the TV to ABC family in the evenings and watch cheesy Christmas movies, they're great. Go out and look at lights, find friends to go caroling with and then have hot cocoa w/butterscotch schnapps and watch an old movie or have a tree decorating party. C'mon guys, you are too young and beautiful to be down this time of year.
