A bigger pile of do-do

I've been trying to hold off writing until I had something good to write about, unfortunately, this won't be a happy post.
We got a letter from the bankruptcy court saying we were in default. We didn't know it but you can't just tell them you can't pay for awhile and then pick it back up. Silly us. So now we have a meeting with our attorney Wednesday so he can tell us what's going to happen. From what I can understand, we will be put on a strict probation period of 6 months making our own attempt to pay the $151 a month payment. It was being taken out of Patty Lou's check automatically, but without her working it stopped. We didn't know the place where they're holding her job for her was suppose to pay it and then get it from us. It's all screwed up. So if we default on the probation, the creditors (mostly the IRS) will sue us, take a lean on our property, and ...well, we lose the place. I still haven't found work yet so making payments and living too is getting all the more difficult. Stopping living has entered my mind on many occasions lately. I just can't keep being this sad about everything that's jumping on me much longer. It hurts. I hurt. The question was asked, "What does it mean to be a woman." All the transgirls that answered failed to realize they brought their job and their knowledge that was acquired when they were men. Strip that away and try and start over from scratch and life as a woman isn't near as much fun. I can't fall back on my old life, and my new life is tearing me apart. I'm truly stuck in the middle.

Sorry to hear your troubles are getting worse. We've been barely dodging bullets here too. I've been considering the idea of doing the guy role again to help us get back on our feet. I love being a woman as I'm sure you do too, but I'm starting to think about basic survival mode. It wouldn't be the end of the world.

You'll know the way back when you get financially comfortable again.
hugs, Teri

I'm so sorry. Things have been so tight for Nikki and I for awhile, so while I can relate, it certainly seems that your situation is much more dire. I wish there was something I could do. You'll be in my thoughts, and please, please hang in there.
