Bitch and moan

Money.  Gah.  I have been feeling super stressed about money lately. 

We have crappy insurance, which doesn't pay anything toward sick visits until we pay our entire deductible (which is $6000).  Guppy was sick for the entire month of February, which entailed multiple visits to the doctor, a chest x-ray, a nebulizer, and various medications.  The bills have started to roll in, and we owe roughly $1000.  ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS for a cold virus.  It makes me sick.

My husband fell and injured his wrist about two weeks ago.  We thought he had just hurt it, but two days after the incident his fingers felt numb.  Fearing that he might have broken something, he ended up going to an Urgent Care center after work to have it checked out.  Turns out that nothing was broke, and he is feeling a lot better now.  The bill hasn't arrived yet, but I am certain that little visit will cost us a pretty penny.

As if that wasn't enough, my husband also paid two bills late last month, which resulted in two $25 late fees.  I was IRATE.  We had the money to pay the bills, but John was just "too busy" to get around to it in a timely manner.  His laziness cost us $50!  AND THEN he got a speeding ticket yesterday for another $100.  What the fuck is up with my husband.  Is he trying to piss me off? 

I haven't been in a very good mood lately and all these money woes are not helping to improve my mood.

We're drowning in medical bill debt, too. And we have decent insurance. Sucks.
