I feel like shit even coming here and posting this, so close it out now if you dont want to hear me whine about my life...
I'll start with the tiny spot of good news- which is my workplace has given me a promotion! It will be effective as of two weeks from tomorrow, and it includes better hours and a pay increase.
The bad news is that, until then, I'm drowning in 14-hour days, scheduling hell, constant paperwork and shuffling and running around.
And also, on Tuesday, I had to make the heartbreaking decision to put my cat, Kiki, to sleep.
She had a UTI that I dumped $600 into fixing because the very said she had another infection on top of it. She was at the office for observation and fluids after doing poorly for a few days, and on Tuesday evening, shortly before the vet office closed, my mother called me and told me that they had done an x-ray and found fluid in her chest and around her lungs. They suspected cancer was the culprit. I had to make the decision to have her euthanized, so she wouldnt suffer, but I didnt get the chance to say goodbye to her. My mom and my little brother were there to love her and kiss her goodbye. But I missed that chance. I know she's in a better place, but I think not being able to hold and kiss her one last time makes this incredibly hard...
And on top of it, the expenses for her care completely wiped out my savings. I have made a Ko-fi if anyone feels like helping me recoup my losses, and hopefully get gas for work this week. Every penny would help... I hate having to beg, but I cant look at adding another job because they have me working such long hours at this one...ko-fi.com/mego1060
Thanks guys... I'm hanging in there. There's got to be a bright side to this somewhere, right?
