Aww! Kitty! Hugs! I have that issue too. I felt like this in Chemistry and Calculus as well. I was about to PM you to see if you wanted to skype tomorrow. I can't tonight cus I have my Botany test tomorrow to study for, but I am sure if we can get each other REALLY comfortable with the material we won't be as miserable in class.

Yea, Viva- I want to figure out all my body issues one by one in hopes of eliminating some of the current problems I am dealing with. That way, if one issue is causing another, I can cross that off my list and not have to go to a specialist for it. I told my BF about the consultation to see if I need a sleep study done, and he is like "Yea, you probably need to do that" -rolls eyes- lol. Poor him though, I probably give HIM sleep issues with all my tossing and turning.. :P

AGREED.

Not meaning to detract from what you have going on, but I've got a story about those people... A couple of months after my mum passed away back in 2006, we started getting harassed by the phone company, demanding for my mum to contact them. We'd sent a copy of the death certificate to them, changed the bills into my grandmother's name, gone through all the proper procedures, but they kept sending bills addressed to my mum as well as to my grandma. They were doubling up on charges, and demanding she contact them, threatening to send debt collectors to our place to take things in lieu of payment... Eventually we cracked it and my grandma yelled down the phone that they can send their next bill to Brighton Cemetery and see if they got a response (naturally we were still very emotional).

Yep, bill collectors can be ridiculous... Sometimes you come across one that lets you work out a payment plan, but that's if you're lucky. Hope you find a solution to whatever is going on ASAP, it sucks being in that position.

I don't know what to do about it. This woman had the nerve to tell me she knew that electric companies will work with you for payment and that I could pay something. How the heck does she know what I can pay? I got an electric bill for four hundred dollars. I have been on payment plans before. She is just an overpaid moron who wouldn't know what real struggle was if it hit her in her pointed head. I told her I would pay the full amount when my income taxes came and she acted like I was a liar. I hung up on her. How long do I normally have before I get sued? I'm so mad right now.

I'm not sure. My only bill that went to collections stayed in collections for quite a while(atleast more than 3 months) before I got hired. My dad had taken me off his health insurance and didn't even tell me. I had a serious case of the flue and needed some antibiotics. The bill normally cost me $50, but it cost me over $200 because my dad yanked my insurance without even telling me.

Can you call the electricity company to work out something regarding that bill, or have they decided it's too late? I really don't know how it is over there, but I've had some success with the companies themselves being somewhat sympathetic in comparison to debt collectors, having dealt with both. I'd love to offer more advice, but given that I don't know how things work over there, and assuming you've already tried liaising with the company, I don't know what else you can do except pay anything when you have the funds available to do so.

This is what I get for wanting to clear some debt to get a house. Jerk debt collectors who are rude and disrespectful. That's what I get for trying to get out of this tornado magnet I live in (mobile home) and into a real house.
I have tryed to get help from the electric company but the only help they will give me is a monthly bill of three hundred dollars. That doesn't help seeing as my bill goes way down in the summer. I would be paying three hundred for a hundred and thirty dollar bill. That is what I tryed to explain to this scumbag of a creditor but she kept talking over me disrespectfully. Why don't these people have morals enough to get a respectable job. I would rather live under a bridge than make people feel like they are trash and the best part. She recommended I forgo my electric bill for a month to pay her! I am not going to let my utilities go to pay my husbands old phone bill. Trashy woman,

I may be planning a trip to see a doctor soon. My issues with heartburn/reflux are now causing me grief when I am at home. I have been feeling so sick the past couple of days because of heartburn and other related upper digestive issues. I don't know how many people realize how hard it is to motivate yourself to do something when you get persistent heartburn. I don't feel like doing squat as of lately. I also know this is something I have to keep an eye on because it is prevalent on my dad's side of the family.

If anyone knows of some good home remedies for calming heartburn, they would be appreciated. Tums don't seem to do much for me and I cannot take pepto bismol.

FishyFishy, that is exactly how I feel. I just want to bury my head under a pillow. Not only am I having heartburn issues lately but I woke up this morning with a headache to boot! ><!!!
