    So let me see how I can put this all in a nutshell:

    Starting last yr; I experienced lumps in my breasts. An ultrasound and mam. later; non-cancerous; thank God!
    Every 6 months mam. from now on. However, then in January; my 21 yr old daughter was kicked out of where she lived and
    came back home. She has type 1 diabetes and is very hard to live with. She has other (medical) issues but is not working, not really helping around here w/o mouthing and is NOT taking care of her diabetes correctly. She is covered under my husbands work insurance for now.

    Oh, husbands work...yeah..after 13 years working at walgreens, being loyal and just calling in sick; about 3 times in 13 yrs...they decided to do away with his position. He could take a 25% paycut and be demoted to team leader, quit & not have any unemployment OR could stay in his position, be reassigned to different stores until his position is phased out, then he would have NO position, but he could reapply for a lower "ranking" position... so..guess what? his last day is June 5th. (so that takes care of our main 75% income for the household AND our medical insurance. Which now means that Britts insulin she takes 4 times a day to stay alive, needles, testing strips are all coming out of our non-existent paychecks.) AND I found more lumps...another trip to the specialist determines I have a fibroidal breast disease; which I need to take meds for (birth control typ meds) OR control by eating no carbs, no fats, no dairy ...so I guess I'll lick some grass..but I'm sure thats wrong too...

    AND in Feb I think it was or maybe March...someone opened up our coop door overnight; we lost 25 hens to an attack..that was fun... :-(

    My home based biz. is entering the summer dry phase...it will pick back up in Sept/Oct and hot/heavy in Nov/Dec. ...

    one of my best friends was given the option to A: Call hospice in and let nature take its course.. OR try to qualify for a double lung transplant..sigh..

    THEN...we have a rental house we had rented to a friend for his workshop..he hasnt paid "rent" for a while but we went over today to check it out..and this is what we find:

    Sounds like life is kind of rough for you right now. :(

    Hope things can work out. Can you get your friend to help clean up his place? Or up the rent so you can be monetarily compensated for cleaning it yourself?

    That's awful that your husband, steady worker as he is, is having a pay cut and possibly being laid off. :(

    Tell us of any updates- sounds especially troubling given the medical situations of yourself and your daughter.

    Hang in there! [​IMG]

    Thanks! I know God is in charge of this all...and that we arent to worry;..but human nature always seems to worry dont we??

    However, I have a large peace about this all...June 5th is my husbands last day of work..so...I just have trust in my God, our Provider...
    i cannot imagine if I didnt have God to lean on during this...however, it is still frustrating..

    Frustrating????? OMG I would be LIVID!!!! Sue the pants off those people!!! How dare they do that to you guys!!!!!

    On an up note, there is a lot of stuff I see in all that mess that could be a profitable garage sale.

    The renters? Make sure someone is there to oversee them. They have already destroyed a lot of that house.
     
  7. What kind of "friends" do that!

    Prayers for you and your family.

    Ugh. This is why I never loan money to friends, loan items to friends or rent to friends. You need money and I have it, it's a gift. You need something I have, I am more than happy to come operate it for you.
