Well let's see...In the past 3 weeks or so,
My neighbor almost burned her apartment down (we live in a fourplex). Fortunately we just got some smo ke damage and the neighbor's apartment did too because, get this, the fire started in an outlet near her fishtank, the tank broak from the heat and the tank water put out the fire. There was even a bit of water left in the tank (it didn't shatter, just cracked) and two fish survived.
I am arguing with some medical providers over bills that my insurance already paid on and thus I should not have to pay the whole thing. Bu even the amounts I due ow add up, considering that my husband and myself both have chronic illnesses. And of course everyone wants the full amount. Interesting factoid of the week: 47% of all bankruptcies are filed due to medical expenses.
And then, my husband and I our having some troubles, but I am not going to air our laundry here. Suffice it to say I am trying to talk him into goin go counselling
So that's my sad tale of woe. However, I tell myself every minute that no matter how bad it seems there are so many people who would be greatful to be able get medical care at all and to have somewhere to go to if thier house burned down, and who have people that can take them in, who have a job and food to eat. And I have all those things. So I guess I have a lot to be greatful about!
