I meant to give y’all an update about this awhile ago, but I’ve been way too stressed out to make any posts regarding it.
We lost more than we thought we did to the fire. All our food was destroyed, as was our ionizer, tower fan, several kitchen appliances, and various other things. We spent over $400 replacing all our food and a few appliances. Some of our furniture was damaged in the move but the movers made the repairs because they caused the damage. My bicycle’s seat was melted off, the basket destroyed, and the handles are damaged. Several of my coffee/tea mugs were crushed and broken in the fire.
The housing agency hasn’t sent our adjuster their invoice…and it’s been over a month. The movers/cleaners sent their yesterday. Our adjuster rarely answers my calls and never calls me back when I leave a message. He hasn’t responded to emails either. I understand he’s incredibly busy right now, but we’re losing our patience and completely broke.
We’ve maxed out the credit card, owe my parents money for helping us, we have bills that need to be paid, etc. We really need that money. ASAP. I hope it’s enough to pay off the credit card. After we get our money we’re going to the insurance company’s local office and having our policy moved to our new home and increasing the coverage as well. We’re in fire country and really don’t want to deal with a total loss and not enough money to cover it all.
Needless to say we’re incredibly stressed out and it’s wearing us down.
August 6th I had the worst seizure in over a decade. It was a tonic-clonic, lasted over a minute, and I wasn’t breathing when it was over. My husband said my face turned blue and then purple. Thankfully he has CPR and First Aid training. He saved my life. It took almost a month to recover from it. That very day I had seen the neurologist and had my medication dosage raised 50mg. I took the medicine right after recovering enough to swallow my pills. I had been in survival mode since the fire, and on August 6th we finally got into our new home. My brain deemed it safe to finally let loose and threw me into a seizure. I have a very low seizure threshold; it doesn’t take much to set them off. Our current situation is making it very likely I’ll have another seizure, though hopefully not as severe. BTW epilepsy is deadly if untreated. People die because of their seizures.
We’re unable to do our laundry (Thursday is laundry day) because we have no money to spare. We go to a laundromat because we don’t have a washer or dryer. My husband is going to work in dirty work clothes. Thankfully he works in a kitchen, and the smell from his clothes goes largely unnoticed. He feels very disgusting though, and when he comes home the smell is unbelievable.
I have new items available in my Etsy shop, and I ship worldwide. Please consider making a purchase. We need every dollar we can get.
