Who is this crazy lady?

Well, my name is Jen and I’ll be your tour guide for this interesting trip.

But first a bit about me.

I’m 36, single and have no children. In Oct 2008, I left a bad relationship with nothing more than what would fit in my car. I had no idea what I was going to do or where I was going. Currently, I’m living on the converted porch at my younger sister’s. It’s rough especially on the bitter cold nights (porch doesn’t have heat), but I get thru. And it’s a hell of a lot better than what I left behind.

I’m disabled, not something I like to talk about a lot. I’m on disability, which makes things rougher. The amount I get every month is about what the cheapest apartment in the highest crime area costs. Yeah, not fun. Not to mention my prescription and doctor costs every month, ug. So I’m currently waiting for low income housing (which I’m still not sure I’ll be able to afford), and it could be months.

My sister has given me until April to get out or she’ll throw me out. No, she’s not doing it to be mean or anything. When she agreed to let me stay here, it was for 6 months. I understand, she’s young, just got married. She shouldn’t have to be dealing with me and my issues. And she feels bad because of the housing arrangements. Honestly, I want to be out too. I want my own place and to feel like I have a life again.

Despite everything, I try to keep pretty upbeat. I know things will work out, just maybe not as fast as I would like, lol, but it’ll happen. There are times when I get down, but I really try not to stay there or let it destroy the work I’ve already done.

So that’s me in a nutshell. I hope you will all stick around and see how my story goes. I started this blog just to have a place to talk about my life, my thoughts and the world. I guess I think of it as my safe place to talk about anything I want to.

Thanks for reading.

Jen
