Well, I've talked about this before to someone but it still bugs me. I've been stressed for the past few months due to several things, and I feel like my brain is melting.
Here's the major things:
- We might be losing our apartment because my mom is way behind on bills. I will be selling a lot of the games I don't play anymore or have never touched since I've bought them to help out, but that will only cover the rent and not the other utilities. Plus, my mom has to go into the hospital because she's sick again. But the landlord doesn't care, in fact he thinks my mom is LYING to get out of paying him. All he did was stare and threatened her with moving out but said he'd 'think about it' and would get back to us. I hope we won't get kicked out and we'll have to live in the van...I mean, it's near winter and we also have a dog to take care of.
I wanna punch that landlord in the face, it's strange he's acting this way because even when we first moved in he was always really understanding and very kind. And we've lived in our apartment for almost 5 years now with no previous threats or problems, but I think the reason for the trouble we're going through now is because we lost the money that I had and I saved to help pay for the bills in the first place.
- I know I have to get a job soon, but even if I were to get one within the next day or two I wouldn't get the money in time to help pay off the rent. Plus I know finding a job will be difficult since I break like a twig under pressure and my skills are very limited outside of clothing/house design (which I will eventually go to college for but I'll probably never work in that field because it's too much work for me). The most I'd do is re-stocking shelves, I'd never be able to do a cash register if my life depended on it.
Plus I'm upset about my mom having to end up buying the Sun/Moon games I preordered a few months back. I told her to cancel them, but she knew how hyped I was for them so she is saving up for them and has over the past 2 months now. It still makes me upset, and again even if I got a job I wouldn't make enough money in time to actually buy the games myself.
- This one's a bit of a long one, and it's the major reason why all this is happening. Let's just say that a 'friend' of mine went all 'wolf in sheep's clothing' on me and we all realized too late (if you get the song reference then I applaud you). She stole my card, then stole all my inheritance over ONE week. We didn't notice until the end of the week because we hadn't used it in almost a month, and my mom found out when she wanted to get a new tire for my van.
We already got all the evidence and everything, she's in jail, and I got a restraining order out on her because she tried to break into our house more than once. Oh, and my 'friend' is a junkie so you can guess where all that money went. Plus, I just found out recently that the bank might be lying to us about how we'll get all that money back. They said she had to pay in 'restitution', but now I'm going to see if the bank has a 'fraud department' (I think that's what it's called?) and they should be able to pay it back.
- I'm still worried my 'friend' has hidden something inside our house due to how many times she tried to break in before I got the restraining order. We gave her all her stuff (we threw away the drugs because we could get in trouble just for having it in our house even though she brought them in without our permission), minus a few things that a neighbour of mine kept because that neighbour had housed her for almost 4 years and it was mostly stuff that the neighbour bought for her.
Plus, my 'friend' stole all my WiiU games (which includes Mario Party, Mario Kart, and Pokken Tournament which btw we got on the day it came out in the US) and was going to steal my mom's jewelry. I'm just glad she's in jail right now, and no one is even trying to get her out. But I get paranoid easily, so just knowing that there might be something in our house she's trying to get makes me want to go completely nutters.
I'm completely stressed out right now. I don't know what to do, I just wanna cry but we've been through WORSE than all this (honestly our current landlord isn't as bad as the previous one where he threw away all our stuff even though we told him beforehand that we were moving out and we paid 2 month's rent in advance...my mom lost her breathing machine and wedding rings, plus we lost all out clothes and toys which we were planning to half give away and half keep). I was just hoping we'd finally be better off since I got my inheritance, but I guess when you think it'll only rain a bit you'll find glass shooting at you from the sky as fire is set under your very feet.
I'm gonna go cry for awhile...maybe eat some ice cream....have a cup of hot cocoa....take a nap...
