currently, i am dealing with receiving no payment of Unemployment Insurance benefits since June because my previous employer incorrectly submitted my paperwork showing i was laid off. my bills are currently due with no money to pay them. i cannot start a job because a prospective employer does not have a copy of my 25 year old HIGH SCHOOL diploma and the school system can’t find my records. the job is working temporary for the company that i was laid off from. i worked for them for 10 years and NOW they need my HIGH SCHOOL diploma?! WTF! i deal with ADHD and Bipolar on a daily basis with some days being debilitating. i need to spend $60 monthly on medication and more on doctor’s visits, which i cannot afford due to no income.
now, i want some condescending asshole to come flying through here with their mouthful of platitudes telling me how things are going to get better and there are people out there doing worse than me.
so FUCKING WHAT! that’s like me being grateful that i just got shot in the stomach and didn’t get shot in the head like Joe Blow who lives down the street from me!
i say all of this to say, i am thankful for the thoughts and well wishes when they are constructive and meaningful. i do not want to hear it just because my situation makes YOU feel uncomfortable!
