Especially money you owe and don't have. Went to pay one medical bill last night and found two more, all from my eye problem when the glob of clear gel in my left eye decided to pull away from the retina. After insurance, it's about $1000.
Meanwhile, the "bad spot" on my left upper jaw has flared up again, with the skin opened up and a lot of swelling and pain.
All this tells me I'm going to go into work and suck it up. Gotta pay the bills. Gotta keep the animal running. I'm damned if I know why, other than it's lousy to be sleeping in a cardboard box under a bridge, but I hate being cold at least that much.
