This morning was mother's chemotherapy treatment. We got to the place to have the treatment at around 11am. They took her back at 11:15am. She stayed from 11:15am until about 2pm.
I was regulated to the hallway today as all the recliners were full as were the extra chairs. That upset me a lot as they need to make considerations for the caregivers that come to be with the chemo patients.
Anyway, after we left chemotherapy mom was a little hungry as expected so we stopped and ate lunch...and knowing our money situation is extremely tight right now...she made me pay the check.
Two salad bars and a diet coke for me (she had water) were seventeen dollars with tip...seventeen dollars for a salad...that ridiculous!!!.
Anyway, on the way home I told her that I wanted to stop at the bank and cash in some change and also stop and drop some books for donation and credit at half price books.
I also told her this before she and I even got to the medical building where she takes chemo.
She forgot about it. And when I reminded her of it, she got really, really angry at me (I did not one damn thing wrong) and said rather hateful "you don't even have five dollars in change to cash in", really nasty.
Anyway, I also told her that yes, I would like to go to the bookstore and cash in on those books (I had maybe fifteen dollars as I am getting rid of an e-reader I don't use) and she said that she would take me tomorrow to do that instead of today.
I do feel bad for her on these days she does chemotherapy....But, I am not asking for the moon, I just want enough money to last until the end of the month.
Right now I have only fifty dollars total to last until June 3rd when my social security check comes.
