I thought I was doing better. Now I have been knocked down a few pegs and don't know how to get back up. One of the problems was my car but I got that fixed. I'm just stuck and don't know what to do.

Oh Mandy Sad wish I knew what to say to help. You know you always have friends here who will listen if you need to talk (sometimes it's easier to talk to someone you aren't as close to as 'real life' friends). Sending you love and hugs all the way from the UK xxxxxxx

Here's what's mostly been going on. IRS took even more money from me that I didn't have, now ex-boyfriend wasn't paying his part of rent which left me even more broke and hungry. Broke lease, ended up living with an ex-coworker who is now kicking me out, I was originally given a week to vacate. I still owe money to the apartment complex and haven't made a single car payment since April. Now ex-boyfriend basically left me and didn't have the nerve to face me after break up. Car was majorly broken, like the brakes didn't work like they should and for a little didn't work at all which led me to use Lynx for my transportation (very frustrating for the most part). Since May, most of us have been getting 32-35 hours a week which doesn't really help me at all.

Thanks to you a great paycheck for the week of July 4, I had enough money to get my car fixed which ended up being an easy fix. I was able to find a new place to live before the first deadline which should be a better living environment and now with a really awesome paycheck, I can afford to move into new place and hopefully start a road to getting my finances back on track. I now make a little bit more an hour and have an opportunity to move somewhere else within the company as my role is changing which hopefully bring me more training along with more hours. It's been a really frustrating few months and now there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This is my first reply as I didn't want to respond incase I put my big foot in it.( expert at that ) .Now that I've read the complete story, I understand what you've been going thro..I've been in kinda similar situations in life, like during my divorce way back, having to sell off various things and cash in policies to come up with the finance, ( the female gets everything here in Scotland LOL) ...But as i sat at my friends funeral yesterday and listened to the preacher doing his thing, I knew that there's always someone worst off than yourself..My friend laying in a casket..54 years old..Keep fit fanatic..Had done several marathons including London and Paris..never smoked a day in his life..never drank heavily...And as his 8 year old daughter held her moms hand leaving the church it brought it all home to me how life is so precious..So I'am glad that your story, just like a Disney tale, has a happy ending..May it continue and I wish you lots of magic in your future..

Hopefully all the bad stuff is done now, and it's your turn to shine. It sounds like you've been really level-headed in a trying time, so keep it up. Sending lots of stars and bighug your way.
