This year sucks...

2017....let me begin by saying Thank you for thanking the time to read this. So this is my first, and hopefully only time to ever do this...here goes. My name is Donna and this has been my worst year ever! It started with me going to the hospital on Christmas day and not getting out until New Year's day. After which I had to be off for two more weeks. Which isn't bad , except I had just started a new job the Monday after Thanksgiving. Work was great about it, and I'm very thankful for that. March, my mother passed away, I'm now the only person left from my childhood family, both brothers and parents are now gone. Understandable, this hit me kind of hard. But, it's all a part of life, I get that. April, end up in the hospital again, and miss out on a trip to Tennessee we had planned. July, fell and broke two bones. One on my right foot and one in my left leg, so off work again. This time for six weeks. Hoping to go back on the 17th of this month, after Dr. appointment on the 16th. Also in July...termites! $1500 for that, then the water tank blew, then another $1500 for car repairs and inspection. On my 2004 Chevy cavalier. Then a trip in the middle of the night to the emergency vets with one of our dogs, $739. She's better by the way. Now, the AC goes.....stick a fork in me cause I'm done. Over $3000 for the medical bills, time off work, termites $1500, water tank, emergency vets $739, car repairs $1500, air conditioner $2200 ...our unit was built in 1979!....I'm afraid of the next four months. I've never been a person who looks for the down side, I'm usually the one trying to look for the good ; but this is getting ridiculous. If you can help at all, I'd appreciate it. Never done anything like this before, and if you can't help that's ok too....just please send some positive energy my way. That would be helpful too.
