My husband and I had roommates for the first 8 years of our relationship. We had to.

I'm surprised no one has proposed this as a new back. "Millennials are buying homes with this one weird trick!"

My generation, the latchkey kids, or the apathetic generation before we were renamed after the boomers ( first called the me generation).

A real lot if identification with the aggressor, or Stockholm syndrome if you will.

I am old enough to remember when Rolling Stone magazine was calling y'all the "Slacker Generation" and the "Reality Bites Generation". My birth year at that time missed the cut off, and now I'm considered a Xennial.

This is exactly what happened to my best friend from childhood, we'll call her Alice. She is an ER case management nurse, but other than that, I had to do a double take.

Her husband, too, fell down the Q Rabbit hole and it ended in divorce. I mean, if you ask me, he was always a jerk. Imagine your wife's best friend since age 7, drives 60 miles to come over and be with her while she's recovering from surgery, and you don't even introduce yourself or say hi or anything for the entire time - just play Dungeons & Dragons.

THAT'S the kind of husband he was, the Q was just the straw that broke the camel's back. She's better off without him, and so are you.

This worries me, as my payments were made through a 3rd party during Covid - via check, I believe (my servicer website just says "other", where all the payments I made myself before the pause say "online"). My servicer said then the refund would come to me at the address on file, same if someone has since changed banks and so on...but they could not provide in writing anywhere that said that. I went ahead and requested and we'll see what happens I guess.

Yeah. I was surprised to hear what she said. It's not a big deal to me, because I only paid $400. I still would have preferred to have it, if $10K forgiveness becomes a thing, but it won't be a huge loss either way.

Welcome to the gap... I fell into that crack as well, for many years and just went without. One thing you can do is look into Health Sharing Ministries if you're religious, but be really careful. Under the law, they have to be pretty clear they're not insurance, so you lose a lot of the protections that you have with insurance, because they aren't regulated the same way. I think Decent out of Austin, TX might be a secular Health Sharing Ministry. I had my son on that, because wait until you find out what they do to single parents with disabilities and their coverage? I couldn't even legally opt into ACA plans (as a MediCARE recipient) and in the state I was in, I couldn't get my son coverage unless I had it, too. Talk about rock and a hard place!

Other than that, I'm just not aware of anything if you fall in the cracks. If you have to go without insurance, there are FHC (Federal Health Care Centers) in most areas of the US and you can go there for cheap cash care. And for ongoing needs, you can look into something like K Health where it's $59 a month to access medical care that's done over chat and remotely, and use GoodRx discounts to fill the scripts. For catastrophic, all hospitals have charity programs, so always inquire about that.

Yep, I'm finding that out. The really fucked up thing is I keep getting repeatedly told that if I get pregnant, THEN they can help me and then I can qualify because its considered a "life event". Why cant I get help without having to pop out a kid to be considered a human being? I hate Kentucky so much. Ill look into that, but I really, really, am apprehensive about anything to do with religion right now.

I wonder when inflation will hit the job market. We haven't seen salaries inflate for more than 40 years.

Executive Assistants at Twitter. They make $160K a year and spend a few hours a day doing actual work, like Google calendar. I live in the area so I know. Issue is, you have to know someone to get in.

And they're probably all laid off right about now, so they don't make that anymore.

I am a handy man that charges $50/hr with a 3hr minimum, a couple months ago I got a call for service that consisted of changing 9 smoke detector batteries, 2 light bulbs, and re hanging a picture. I felt bad taking the money but the guy couldn’t have been happier to have that stuff finally done. He asked for my card and is now a very good client

I mean? The thing is I literally wouldn't be able to do all the things you just listed (due to physical disability) and I don't expect people to work for free, soooo... Thanks for the work you do. And if you ever "feel bad" you can do some of it gratis for impoverished seniors / people with disabilities. There are also programs to help them afford repairs and handiwork, so you wouldn't necessarily even need to do the work gratis.
