being single in this society comes with a mess of problems on its own.
birthdays are suppose to be a celebration but since i am turing 26 i am dreading the day because it means i am losing my insurance. being single means finding and affording insurance on my own. cancer threw a bump in my road to a career so insurance through work isnt an option. how do you get/afford insurance on your own?
i also live in a studio on my own. i have always lived in a fairly sterile environment so finding a roommate that can live with my medical issues is beyond terrifying. i have had roommates before and i feel very lucky for that but it is no longer an option. i have been trying to find someone for about two years already with no prospects. where i live the cheapest studio is about 1000/mo. not something a single person can afford. does anyone else live on their own? do you have people who check on you regularly during/after treatment? who drives you to appointments? if you cant work, how do you afford rent and utilities?
food is another issue i am snagging. i really want to eat healthy but who can afford it! fruits and veggies are expensive. i dont even bother buying meat. i mostly eat oatmeal, bananas, apples, and yogurt. i splurg on yogurt and apples. i try to buy lettuce but it always goes bad before i can eat it. im allergic to bread so sandwiches and pasta are no good. where do you shop? are there any farm fresh programs? i know they have some programs up north, i am in so cal.
since i am not working i decided on going back to school. so i will at least have student loans to live off of. where do you find income?
lots of questions just signed a new apartment lease so im nervous. especially with insurance looming over my head. i already cancelled all my summer vacation plans to cover moving costs. gives me about a month to find 1000 for my schools insurance policy. and about two weeks to figure out how to stock my apartment with some healthy grub
