Fun fact: I just realized Wednesday night I have A LOT more medical debt than I actually was aware of. So just as I figured out a game plan to get my life all situated and ready for progress, I’m hit with the cold truth I have three times as much four-digit debt than I assumed.

And you know what?

That being said….

I’m still working on getting it all paid down or off, so that I can move forward. I would love to have my own home in the next year or two, but financial circumstances keep getting me into weird messes. And even though I have no plans to quit my job right now, things are getting pretty rough here, and I can’t even promise they’ll keep me if push comes to shove.

So, what will I do about all this mess?

The answer: The very best I can.

I will continue to live and travel and plan and make myself happy now. Because you know what? I need to be happy NOW. I can’t be guaranteed that there will be a tomorrow if I don’t take care of myself today. My body freaks out under stress now, something I used to handle A LOT better pre-Sjogren’s flare-of-doom in 2012. But now I am constantly reminded: Cut back on some stress, or it will only continue to get worse. My body has made this point to me, too.

KIDNEYS

Yet, stress keeps building: bad news, big news, dread, debt, work, health, everything.

Last night and today have been particularly rough, and I want nothing more than to go curl up in bed. But duty calls, and I must do that which must be done before I can focus on my body.

And while I do have some good news to share, that will come with the next post.
