well a few weeks ago my income had dropped from around $700+ a week to about $350, with all of my bills,expenses and very limited Christmas shopping, I have been broke and owing money to friends. I have had to make a hard decision to raid my food reserves to save money. This sucks all my expenses have been going up, I owe taxes that are beyond my ability to pay, I have so many things I would like to get, like a new mattress, gym membership, gifts for loved ones. I feel depressed with my financial state right now. I hope things turn around soon, and gas stays low thanks for listening.
