As most of you already know I've lost my job over being 'sick' and now depend on my family to send me cash. I've tried getting another job but no luck . Those unfortunate enough to chat with me a few weeks ago know I had no money or food for like two weeks and I was a complete bitch to be around. I lost five pounds from eating so little, felt too weak and anxious to go far from the apt. The worst thing you can do to me is starve me, it messes me up really bad.
My grandmother came through for me though and sent me a bit of money so I was able to buy some decent food. I think my stomach shrank because I ate less than I did before the fast It was good and before the money got low my mother sent me $30. Just last Thursday I depositied $20 and kept ten for myself- which wound up going for a medication I don't think I even need but that's a whole 'nother rant.
Today I was thinking about maybe ordering delivery or going shopping because I'm running low on food- I call my bank to make sure I have money in there and it tells me $19.80 has been taken out! At first I think some idiot must've put in 20 cents instead of 20 dollars... but after looking into it a company I had gotten stuff from has decided it has a right to randomly take out money > . So I tried their website, nothing about billing there (of course) so I tried calling.... After listening to their sales pitch for 15 minutes they say the queu is 18 minutes and they plays that stupid waiting music. I called my bank back and am like "These bastards are scamming me, get that money back, etc." I have a good bank and they're doing what they can do, closed my card, sending me a new one (Of course it'll take up to two weeks to arrive) and I can get a handy card that's only good at ATMs (At least I have over ten bucks in the bank now, I have $10.01 exactly) at my nearest bank, but they can't credit my account with the money the crooks took until the investigate... I tried calling that company again and the wait went from 18 minutes to 90 minutes... so full of bullshit they are. They don't intend on talking to anyone.
So I'm back to being low on food and practically broke. My Mom is sending me money but it'll be a few days. I don't wanna go back to this fasting thing. If I'm strong enough tomorrow I'll hit a soup kitchen/food pantry.
