Well as many of you know or dont know by now My name is Kristin and I am a 23 yr old Lung cancer survivor.... 1 yr and 2 months cancer free... I have been havin problems lately just with life. I am trying to finish college and tonight is the last test of my summer classes to which I thank God its almost over. I have 4 classes left and stressing because I have no been able to work and not making it by I am not used to bein in debt and if I need money I have to ask my parents and they have never been willing to fork over money on me. Thats why I payed for college and worked since I was 15. Its just every month when I get my credit card bill and the only money I get to help is a check for the min payment on it from my mom is stressfull. Its just I feel like I am in a position that I feel that like those 2 times my age deal with and not those who are young. I am not used to worrying about things I cant fix myself right now. I have no life because all the things my friends and I did for fun I cant afford let alone all the fun things that didnt cost I thing I cant do because of the nerve damage in my left leg. The difference is I found other things to do and I am happy but I justhate dealing with finances that I have to debate if I need to try getting a job that I know I prolly wont be able to do.I guess it gets to me because I managed to get this far and have 4 classes left and was able to get through everything and get back to school and my doctors told me it was school or nothing because if I work I risk hurting myself more... and I got denied from disability because my foot showed more then a 25% improvement I guess..... I just dont know if anyone is in a situation I am..... or knows how I feel.....
