I am not one to complain a lot about bad luck, but it seems some times just get it all dumped on your head all at once. Late August of 2011 I broke my ankle, and there have been a lot of complications after the surgery that have slowed down my recovery (the latest of which being that I developed bad tendinitis in on the inside and outside of the ankle, and in the foot, which is really hindering my therapy). I finished my last semester of school anyway, but have been hit with bad financial problems as well. I had to move back in to my ma's house when I broke my ankle, as I no longer could take care of myself, and she is absolutely broke as well, and cannot work because of a disability. For the last two months I have been applying for jobs while going through therapy, but still have had no luck. The grace period on my loans is going to be up soon, and I still have not been able to find employment. I have had to borrow several hundred from family members just to pay for my gas to go back and forth to therapy, and for a suit to wear to job interviews, and I don't see how I will be able to pay them back any time soon. My car's tranny needs to be replaced, and I don't have the money, so my brother has been letting me borrow his spare vehicle, but now his tranny crapped the bed too (what are the chances of that happening at the same time?) and he needs to use his spare car, so I cannot drive to interviews unless I can find someone willing to give me a ride, and I cannot go to therapy till I get this sorted out.
I got a bunch of unpaid medical bills, and they are threatening to send them to a debt collection agency. My Aunt and one of my cousins both died last month. Some #$*@ drove by my sister's house two days ago and shot my dog with a shotgun. (He was my dog, but when my sis moved to her place out in the country, I let her take him, so she could have a guard dog (he is a 120lb rott/pointer mix) He is alive, but the vet bills are going to be very expensive, and she needs money for them (I am debt almost $200) to her. My poor dog is in a lot of pain now, and is constantly terrified of everything around him.
Because of all the compression bandages and the splint when I broke my ankle, I developed an ingrown toenail that my podiatrist did not properly remove, and now I found out that I need my father toenail permanently removed. (I dread to think about how much this is going to cost, considering that his botched job of clipping the corners of a toenail cost me nearly $300.)
I am trying my hardest to find work so I can get myself out of this rut, but I cannot stand for more than a few minutes without being in a lot of pain, and because of the tendinitis in my foot, my arch is flattening and I am developing a flat foot. I have chronic tendinitis in both arms, and cannot do heavy work with out crippling pain that eventually gets so bad that I literally cannot move my fingers if I try. Because of this, the types of jobs I can apply to are fairly limited. I am not eligible for SSI, or any other benefits that I am aware of.
I have never been one to complain about my circumstances, but right now, I don't know what the heck I am gonna do. It is the uncertainty that I find the hardest.
