It's been a month now since I lost my job, so here's an update of sorts.
My unemployment is still denied, and I am getting more and more worried. This means I have no money coming in and I am living off of my old 401k, because it's the only money I have. Yes, I know it's a tax nightmare. Being homeless would be much worse. Since I was sick before losing my job, my savings were already depleted, and that's how I got into this mess so quickly.
Today I got a donation of 24 cans of cat food. I was so relieved I cried.
My weight is going crazy, No matter how well I try to eat, things have been crazy, and my body is Not Happy. My food money card should have been loaded today, and Some time this weekend I will shop for food.
I no longer have health insurance.
I'm still crocheting blankets for the cat shelter down the street, when I'm not too stressed (I received some donated yarn, and found some random yarn in boxes at my apartment). It seems I can't crochet when my brain's friend. The good news is, I started one yesterday and got a lot of it done today.
Thank you to all who have left me notes in the last few weeks. I am trying to hang on by my fingernails. You help. Thank you.
I am still hopeful that April will turn out much better than March was.
