Sick, Infected and Broke

I’m running on little to no energy these days. My health is slowly beginning to deteriorate and it’s definitely got me in a funk. It started as a migraine and turned into nausea, now it’s a full blown sore throat and a pounding headache that just won’t seem to go away. I know exactly where it’s all coming from but unfortunately I don’t have the money to fix it. My filling came out and now it’s infected so I’m using all of the antibiotics that I have from previous dental visits to get the bacteria to die. I’m hoping to get out to Maryland sometime over the course of the next week and go to the Village of Hope clinic because they have inexpensive health care. There’s nothing in Delaware, not even a damn payment plan option just to yank the stupid tooth so it doesn’t reek anymore havoc on my system.

I also have to go to the DMV and get a few things changed over so that’ll be a Monday trip for me. If I can make it until Tuesday I may do the Maryland trip the following day. This is all based on an important factor though, job interview on Friday. I don’t want to go back into retail but that’s the only job I can find down here that doesn’t require me to truck it all over the state of DE. If I’m lucky it’ll be full-time but based on how things go around here I’m sure it’s going to be two part-time jobs if I happen to hear from another place I applied to.

At the same time, I’ve found two freelance positions for design work – I submitted my resume there as well. I’m beyond desperate for change these days.
