TG Day Planning & Financial Fears

It looks as though Raul's heading south to his family for both TG and Xmas, whilst it appears I'll have Ms. Blau's company during his away time.

TG din-din menu plans:

1. Tofurkey
2. Stuffing
3. Mushroom Gravy
4. Cucumber Salad
5. Mashed Potatoes
6. Candied Sweet Potatoes
7. Pecan or Apple Pie
8. Pumpkin Pie
9. Cauliflower Au Gratin

This is just a rough guide, depending on my health and capabilities of course.

I've been even more sick than usual and it feels pretty horrible. Having to spend all my available energy just on getting out of bed is tough on me in every way, but I'm still struggling to take each day, hell, each minute it sometimes seems, as it comes.

My financial situation seems to get worse on a daily basis as well. I'm struggling with the cost of COBRA which is a heavy monthly burden, as well as my medications not covered. This next week I need to find out if the removal of that cost will help or hinder. My teeth are my biggest current financial burden, but it is truly the piling on of the above and the unmentioned which have me getting so fearful and frustrated I get afraid of each day I face.

On the plus side I've had Raul, Carl, & Ms. Blau on my side, helping out when they can. If I get IHSS approval it will make for a huge help that I desperately need. So here's hoping, and here's thanking, and now to wrap this up and move forward through this pain.
