Bought my second house, contractor is a crook. Situation with house is not reparable and is kind of the neighborhood lemon being used to screw people 3 times at least. Asked for eminent domain from city to buy it as unsafe due to electrical problems which could shock someone and just have it condemned…Sad, really lovely house but cannot find anyone locally I could trust to work on it as no one returns phone calls. Ran out of $$$.
Trying to pick up more clients for social media/desktop publishing businesses so decided to take Virtual Assistant stuff too as I have experience. Can work 20 hours on SSDI … My psychosis never stopped at 13 years medicated or not, insomnia is hard to treat and meds rationed. Had to give up life/death work that used to support me as just not safe to take these jobs any longer and really just not good work here any more with bad staffing/low pay for risk involved. Virus wiped out lots of computer equipment in May so in lots of debt. Was given hard time at college here and kind of exhausted after so much BS/hearing it too long so probably find a more skilled and inspired worker if they tried but keep trying so I can live independently again in couple years.
Living with family. Moved to take bad apartment choice and not safe to stay. Couldn’t afford better place. Stinks as I get MUCH better work in city immediately but happy to work at home as no discrimination/harassment/hostility. Have to dig out of more debt.
Working through the frustration to exercise daily and eat better.
Lost my father in June. Kinda still in disbelief. I’m 43 so going through the middle age thing. Hate uncertainty. I’m not used to as my 20s were okay around here with stable work and self support/independent living…
Lots of people my age around here have similar story so know it’s just tough area.
