I’ve been watching season one of Battlestar Galactica. Good stuff!

So the hospital bill for my mom? Not including doctor’s bills, lab work, or tests? $70,000. Bahahahahaha! Good lord. I…I…I don’t even know what to say to that. It’s just reached epic levels of hilarity. I also owe another hospital a few thousand for my gynecological surgery. I’m just pretending none of it exists because I don’t have any other option right now. My financial motto, at the moment? “Eh, fuck it.”

My damn flickr pro account expired. Rawr. I can’t access 99% of my photos, which is really irritating.

I can’t pay my rent this month. Once I paid my insurance and bought some groceries yesterday, I was left with $75 to get me through to the 18th. Yikes.

Oh my god, I cannot wait to get my shit back in order. Ugh, I’m so sick of chaos and fear.

In other news: I’m weirdly addicted to anchovies in olive oil. All I ever want to eat these days are those and cereal. I have no idea. Not at the same time, I should point out.


  1. I hope somebody from the hospital has told you that you will not be held responsible for your mom's medical bills! We had to give the hospital/nursing home/hospice my mom's social security check but that was it. That's the last worry you need.

  2. You aren't responsible for your mom's medical bills. And if bill collectors start calling, tell them that.

  3. you are not responsible for your mother's debt.....I know in your heart you would pay it if you could but you are not responsible...
    Continued good luck on purging your stuff and getting back to a good place.

  4. Last year I was strolling down the street when some jackass hipster reamed me with his Vespa, breaking my leg. It got infected and required surgery and a hospital stay of a full week, and I had no insurance. The bill was 38K, and literally all I had to do to have it waived entirely was to explain to the account dept that I had no money and no way of paying it back, and prove it with copies of my unemployment checks and bank account balance. I also know two people who had their payment reduced by 80-90%--one of them was actually approached by hospital staff in the hallway of a courtroom where he was being sued for nonpayment and asked if he would be able to pay off $900 of it.

    Might be worth a shot. Good luck, I'm rooting for you!
