2009 is a downhill spiral and it's a million things adding up. Well I had to take my dog to the vet yesterday because his shots needed to be updated. I was told it'd be $100 for the visit, no problem I had a bit of money for that. I care about my dog because right now in my life he is truly all I have. I take him there, it ends up being almost twice what they told me on the phone! :huh: So now I literally have $20 in my pocket, no gas and its hard to get to places for a job interview without any money whatsoever. I'm not on unemployment so I can't collect that, my mom can't help me because of her abusive husband, and my dad can't because he's struggling himself. And to top it off... I applied for food stamps 3 weeks ago and the caseworker said they'd come in a week later, never received my card. I tried calling her and she won't return my calls. I really just want to give up. I can't pay my bills, I can't buy food.... I'm screwed and I have nothing to sell to even make some money.
