Response to Renew Deal (Original post)

Tue Nov 6, 2012, 04:20 PM

55. Well...

I am unable to work due to an injury and the resulting surgery.
My benefit period ran out on October 4. I am the only wage earner in a house of 5, so we have an income of $0 for the last six weeks.

Last week I had a nice conversation with the deputy who brought me foreclosure papers. I have until December 11 to come up with $11,000 or the house goes up for sale.

Yesterday I spent 2 hours at the food shelf to get three bags of food, over half past its expiration date. Luckily the shelf also gives out pet food.

My Dr. clinic called to tell me insurance had left a huge gap in payments. I cannot schedule an appointment until I pay the $3000 difference. I cannot return to work (and earn money to pay the bill) until the doctors signs off that I am able.

Today I received a disconnect notice from the water company. I borrowed gas money from my disabled mother in law (the 5th member of our house hold) so we could go vote.

On the way home we took some of the pet food to the dog tied in the back of the house that had a fire three weeks ago. We are afraid no one is caring for it and animal control would just put the poor thing down.

Were can I send an IOU?
