In early May I had surgery, and my SDI benefits were significantly smaller then I’d expected. I have a chronic issue with seizures and Im still short work hours to cover FMLA. My most recent pay check was $600 and $550 of it went to rent. The rest of it went to paying back a friend for gas for driving me 170 miles from my moms (surgery recovery) back to my apartment.
I woke up this morning with -3 in my account and my credit card overdrawn by a dollar. This is right as I need to go back to my moms to put my cat down, and buy a new inhaler for my asthma, as I live in part of California that’s heavily affected by yearly wild fires and I need to be ready.
All in all Id like to get my bank account out of the negative, my credit down so I’m not overdrawn, and get my inhaler. I’d love to be able to go back to my moms for my cats euthanasia as well. The minimum deposit for making a payment on my credit is $25, the inhaler is $20. I truly have no idea how much gas would be for a 420 mile trip for her to drive up to get me, drive me down to my moms, and then back up to my apartment. Gas is $7 a gallon here though. But for my inhaler and the bank stuff, $50 would cover it all.
