Waiting for another shoe to drop

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Hi SP Friends.

Ah, such is life.
It has been one challenge after another for way too long.

The end if March a car drove three feet into my kitchen and nearly killed my Granddaughter.

That led to PTSD which is no fun.

I had to pack all my dreams and belongings making ready for the temporary move.
My condo had to be completely emptied out.
My home is uninhabital the way it is.

I lived in a hotel for almost three weeks and lived on takeout food.

Half of my belongings were moved to temporary housing while the rest was delivered to temporary quarters.
I am now in a townhouse with a set of steep and narrow stairs.
Lots of furniture was too big for the narrow stairway. More stuff in storage.

I have condo insurance that is supposed to cover all of the damages.
That is not necessarily so in my case.
I was assigned the insurance adjuster from hell.
She is questioning everything including cleaning supplies and meals along with almost everything else.
She has refused to authorize payment for most everything.

Still haven't been able to get me car repaired which was hit along with the condo damage.
I will have to put that on hold for a while.

I found out that my niece passed away Monday. So sad for the family.
Her mother was killed by a drunk driver several years ago and now this.

I am supposed to leave for Germany for a visit with the family on Sunday.
May have to cancel the trip.

Have been diagnosed with hyponatremia again. Third time in four years.
I have most of the symptoms which are very uncomfortable.
I most likely have to be in the hospital again for treatment.

Will it ever end??? Sure hope so and soon!

I have gained almost 15 of the 70 pounds lost as a result of having to rely on takeout foods.
No kitchen yet.

As you can tell, I am not a happy Sparker nor should I be given the circumstances.
This too shall pass and be put in tolerable perspective.
It will take time and I have to remember to practice patience and tolerance.

Thanks for reading my saga.

    I am so sorry to hear about the death of your niece. On top of everything you are going through, that grief must be especially hard to bear.

It sounds like you are caught up in a nightmare. I am so sorry all of this is piling up at this time. Is there anyone who can advocate for you or help you navigate the insurance maze? I would think that it's not just your condo insurance, or your auto insurance, it would be the OTHER person's auto insurance as well, and possibly the condo association that should be helping you with expenses.

If you can "escape" from all of that, even for a little while, it might help. Get outside and take a walk. Or read a book. Watch a movie. Do things to offset the stress. Can you find a take-out service that specializes in providing healthy food? Good nutrition, some gentle exercise, some good sleep, and some time spent in doing things you find fun might all help you offset the negative things going on.

    Wishing you better days. I understand this type of life all too well. It's been non-stop for me as well.

    Oh my gosh Janae! That's more than anyone can bear! I am SO very sorry about your niece and your sister, the disaster that took away your home and peace of mind, no car, no kitchen, no home. emoticon emoticon emoticon

There was a time in my life when I lost everything and had to go to court to keep the car (also one of my cats was dying and my MS was acting up with seizures and lost my job....all within 2 weeks). I searched the scriptures for comfort, and wrote TONS in my journal about everything plus my prayers were very honest to my Father in Heaven about my anger, hurt, confusion and even hope. Ultimately, I moved where I needed to go, for me, a place I would have never considerate.But it was hell and I had to find any and all my strengths to make it.

Hell is hell and I am very sorry. Please keep coming back when you can. And, you know? Yesterday I thought of you and wondered how you were and had forgotten your name so I am glad you wrote here today. Know that I am not the only one thinking of you.

Love, Chelsea emoticon

    Life without a kitchen is truly hard. I will be without a kitchen for over a month while it is being remodeled. At least I get to give it advance thought, plan as best I can. You may have the insurance adjuster from hell, but at least you have insurance. I am on a condo board, and you would be amazed at the number of people who choose not to pay for insurance. The master policy only covers so much.

    Your life just sounds horrid right now. Think I would have just a terrible time coping. A talk with an attorney is definitely in order. Many will see you for an initial consultation for free. Ask around to get a good one who handles these sorts of claims. You need a specialist for this, just like you wouldn't go to a dentist for a broken foot. Please keep in mind that there is a huge community here to support you. emoticon emoticon

    WOW I'm so sorry to hear of all the bad luck with the condo and car. Also my deepest sympathies for the loss of your niece. May God Bless you and watch over you during this very trying time, don't worry about the weight , living off of take out has to be hard and it's not your fault.
I'd go after the car owner that drove into your condo for whatever your condo insurance doesn't pay, they are responsible for the accident not even sure why your condo insurance is paying for it when the drivers insurance should be paying you for all damages to your home , car and displacing you.
My prayers go out to you! emoticon

    I am so sorry about your niece. I hope memories of her comfort you.

Re the insurance adjuster - you need to talk to a good attorney immediately. Trust me, it's their job to give you as little as possible.
