As most of you know, I've been in and out of ERs and neuropsych units since October 2006. During this time my husband went on FMLA so he could try and take care of me. The company he works for was supposed to give him his 40 hrs of vacation time and pay him a portion of his wages under the FMLA rules. The woman who runs the HR department is a piece of crap and doesn't know her head from her a**, let alone how to do her job. We had all of the FMLA paperwork filled out by my therapist and he turned it in. Now Ms. HR says he needs more notes to excuse him from work from my therapist stating EXACTLY the same thing as the stuff she already has. I can't stand the woman. I used to work where he does and she really did a number on me and caused me to lose my job in the end. This was several years ago.
So now we are in trouble with paying our bills. I'm having horrible anxiety attacks and am in a funk. I can't seem to see the end of the tunnel that I saw a week or so ago. I'm sitting here looking at the bills wondering where the $$$ is going to come from. I have good credit and don't want to ruin it. But I'm going to be behind in a couple of weeks. I will have run out of $$$ and have no choice but to be late with some things. Granted taxes will be coming and I'm waiting on a $200 reimbursment from our insurance company. This will help. I just don't know if I can hold out until these moneys come in. I'm going to try my hardest. If it doesn't work like the way I hope, my only alternative is bankruptcy. I know nothing about this as the rules have now changed. Is there still a chapter 7? Are they all chapter 13's now?
Any advise would help. I'm feeling very lost and upset. It feels like the weight of the world is sitting on my chest, I can't breathe. There are butterflies in my stomach working their way up into my throat. I hate feeling this way. It sucks.
Take Care,

sorry things are so difficult, as you may know, any benzo tablet disolved under the  tongue will stop an anxiety attack dead in its tracks

maybe the local charities can help out

That feeling is so awful :-( I'm so so sorry you're going through an awful time... Know you're in my prayers!! Its not immediate help, no but...there IS light at the end of the tunnel. you have to believe that and keep moving - no matter how slow - to achieve anything.
like the person above me said, you should reach out to your community. you'd be amazed at how much people are willing to give... i know. my family went through a crisis of sorts a year ago.
