Lost at sea

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      30 comments

I lost my apartment on Sunday. Nobody was able to help me get the amount of money they demanded, so I left on Sunday so I wouldn't have an eviction on my record. My friend Sacha got me a motel room for Sunday and Monday, and today the shelter ha... Read more

More developments

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      28 comments

Tomorrow my social worker is coming over, and she said her office is paying for some groceries for me. On Thursday I'm meeting with a case worker for the organization that may help me with my rent, getting Meals On Wheels and other services. And... Read more

Plodding along

Saturday, August 01, 2015      20 comments

Trying to keep moving when I feel totally inert. Today I got the pots and mixing bowls washed and the dishwasher emptied. Right now I'm trying to get the dirty dishes into the dishwasher. The batch of meatballs I intended to make became a h... Read more

Floating

Monday, July 27, 2015      23 comments

Still floating, waiting for things to develop. Dealing with government offices takes a LOT of patience. Of the first two batches of bread I baked, I have half of each to friends. Tomorrow I'm making spaghetti sauce with a mega-batch of meat... Read more

Update

Sunday, July 19, 2015      23 comments

I know I've been MIA for a long time, but a lot is going on, and most of it is good. On Tuesday one of the women from the rental office came to me and said that her manager said, "we need to talk to her, this isn't like her not to pay." And... Read more

Hitting the bottom

Friday, July 10, 2015      20 comments

My disability payments this month weren't nearly enough to cover this month's rent and I have no hope of coming up with it, so I'm almost certainly going to be evicted. I'm terrified -- I'm 62 and disabled. Today I washed all the dishes and made... Read more

Bleary Monday

Monday, June 22, 2015      14 comments

Yesterday was a mess. Fathers' Day is always hard for me. I had a horrible relationship with my father, so it's always emotional. Also, yesterday would have been my 40th wedding anniversary. We've been separated for twenty-four years. It was def... Read more

(Almost) back to life

Saturday, June 20, 2015      23 comments

It's been an extremely rough several days. I have to be brutally honest -- Thursday night I was so miserable I gave thought to just swallowing all of my meds and get it over with. I thought, "I don't want to live like this." Then I guess the Iri... Read more

Scared stiff

Friday, June 19, 2015      11 comments

Since I got home from the facility I'm scared to death. Yesterday I used the bathroom and couldn't get off the toilet. I had to shout for two hours to be helped. I can't sleep, I can't get in or out of the shower and I have to stand over the toi... Read more

Have you missed me?

Thursday, June 11, 2015      30 comments

Day ten here. I'm getting the boot next Tuesday morning, so apparently they think I'm sane. Little do they know. I'm on three different meds (Zoloft, Gavapentin and Trazadone). They appear to be working very well. My old therapist Arthur to... Read more

Update and other stuff

Saturday, May 30, 2015      21 comments

I talked to the facility yesterday, and they say it will be one to two weeks. I thought it was cute that they made a special point of telling me the food is very good! Yesterday my friend Paolo bought me a new coffeemaker, so I'm enjoying m... Read more

So you know

Friday, May 29, 2015      17 comments

Letting everybody know that next week I'm going to be going into a residential treatment facility for about a week. Please don't panic when you don't hear from me. I should be back week after next. ... Read more

Even more

Saturday, May 23, 2015      15 comments

I may or may not have next month's rent. That aside, I barely have $500 for food, gas, phone, cable and electric. And now my coffee maker has broken and I can't afford a new one, so I can't even enjoy a hot cup of coffee. I have had no slee... Read more

The ongoing story

Thursday, May 21, 2015      20 comments

The leader of my therapy group said two things about me yesterday. I talked about how I feel weird making an elaborate crocheted lace project that isn't going to be a gift for anyone else. She said I need to consider this part of my therapy, to ... Read more
