The on the male TV presenter got me laughing when the man was being interviewed.

It is like the man being interviewed was having ä giggle too, in his own way.

Don't think can get a serious interview in Australia, as always some comedy thrown in.

There is one. She wrote the cleaning schedule. It's hanging on a whiteboard on the front door. The one I stick to but she ignores. She talked with me about doing more cleaning, and then gradually stopped following the schedule.

The reason I don't bother trying to talk with her about it is because she knows she doesn't clean, she just doesn't care about the mess and isn't bothered by how it's affecting me.

It is the light she longs to find,
When she delights in learning more.
Her world is learning; it defines
The destiny she’s reaching for

People that want to clean stuff constantly, do they not realise its only gonna get dirty again, its an exercise in futility, dust & dirt is the natural order of things : /






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Ugh. Dumb ACT app did a ****ing upgrade in the past year and now charging for subscriptions when I already paid full price years ago. And of course the developer mysteriously cannot be found to give me access again. Annoying. I really want to use the app, but damn if I'm paying $10 again. It's the ****ing principle.

Miles to go before I sleep. Vale.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Some people take power naps (10 minutes) after work which helps with energy levels.

Can't pay my bills and I'm worried. Trying to come up with reasonable solutions. It's scary.

Due to time of year or lack of funds?

If time of year, usually pay a late fee if pay it late.

Lack of funds, can pawn something and buy it back later or not.

Lack of funds. Trying to sell stuff on Ebay. Just hope I can pay my rent, utilities, and minimum payments. My rent went up and I was cutting it close, as it was. My stomach is in knots. Bad way to start the year.

Ok.

It will be more of a temporary thing if sell stuff to cover the increase in rent.

Need to adjust budget somewhere else to compensate for rent increase.

Like could:

- Cut back on food. Many who struggle to pay bills do this or buy cheaper food (food on special).

- Power use. Turn lights off and only turn on if in room, which does save money each month.

- Use television, accessories less as saves power and turn fully off, as on standby it chews power.

- Use of car. Combine trips, use less if possible.

- Pay rent first as is more important and other smaller bills later on, if can pay that way.

Talk to land lord about amount of rent after looking at contract to find something you can use to negotiate rent amount. Or ask for explanation of increase in rent.

I've really tried all those things, but thank you. I appreciate all the advice and maybe I can see a new angle or some piece of the puzzle missing in them. I'm trying hard not to stress out, because stress just seems to freeze my brain up more.

Ok. You're welcome.

Not worth stressing over. Just normal life issues we äll go through with paying bills.

Maybe there might be a smaller room or apartment you can try which might drop the rent?

Or rent a room out if an apartment (check contract to see if can do that)?

When there is a will, there is a way. I'm crossing fingers, toes and hoping you sort this out. Stay strong through this.
