Bad To Worse

Things just went from bad to worse. I went to buy lunch today. My debit card was declined. I found out that some how my bank account was -$643. Yeah.... thats a negative. I thought I had my finances in check. I was VERY wrong. Very. I sat in my cubicle and cried for 30 minutes. My boss gave my a $1000 advance. Rent is coming up and thats $800 and then I have to pay $220 for my car. Im going to ask my aunts for money. If that fails. I dont know what Im going to do.
I'll have to move out. And move in with my dad. VERY horrible thought. Him and I dont get along. He has a dog. Im allergic to dogs. I have two cats. His dog dosent like cats. He also lives 55 miles south of me. I would have to quit my job. I would have to pay 2 months rent in fines. My credit is in the tank. I cant buy a car. I cant rent another apartment. I have thousands of dollars in credit card bills.

I thought I was on my way up and out. Now Im in a bigger hole than ever. And the thought of not being on this site every day is not to pleseant either.

Dang Sushi, I'm sorry. I've been there, believe me. It's hard, very hard. But, it WILL get better, just keep your head up and just take it day to day. God never gives you more than you can handle, even when it seems that you are about to lose it all together. Just know we are all here for you if you need to vent.
BIG HUG for you!!!

DS- I'm so sorry to hear that things are getting worse. Is there any way you can call your credit card companies and ask them to lower your interest rate or work with you on some sort of payment plan? Maybe if you can hold your head above water until your lease is up, you can move out and find somewhere cheaper to live?

On a positive note, I think if your job was in jeopardy, I don't think your boss would have advanced you $$. Good luck, we'll all be thinking of you and hoping good things to come.

Thanks again everyone. You know it seems like I write a horror story every month. And.... yes.... they are all true. I dont think too many people would believe me if I told them all at once. Is it just me? Do all of you have this type of life????

OHHHHHHHH Yeah!! I forgot my pager in my car after I got home. So I went to get it. I saw a nice dent with a BIG red streak on the side of my Camry. This guy next to me opened his rear door into mine. So I called the police to make a report. That took about an hour.

Well, Deadly Sushi, you are getting hard to top, but, yes, I have had such times in my life when everything seems to be going wrong, and all the trouble seems to attract....more trouble. All I can tell you is that what texasgirl said to you is true, and htc gave you some good advice. There is light at the end of the tunnel and you always have some choices (even if they seem lousy at the time). Hang in there. Sandyj

No sushi
you are not alone. I've been there. It's not fun
but it will get better! You're a great guy and good things
are bound to happen for you.

I wish I was closer so that I could give
you a nice big hug. Please know that I'm sending
you virtual one right now.

smiles, Trish

sush i'm gooing through it right now. i may lose my job in the next week or two. they're talking about closing the store and going non-union. which means either all new people will be hired or we get cut down to minimum wage which is less than what i started out at. saturday i came home from work to see 25 1/4 inches of sewage water in basement. lost our dryer, hot water heater, furnace, furniture, a dresser that can never be repplaced. had to take off the paneling and remove the insulation from all the water damage. about 10,000 dollars worth of damage. so yeah i'm having a streak of bad luck too.
