    Did these medical issues just appear over the last 4 years after you were discharged from your job for stealing? In case you forgot what you posted in 2007 on these boards, here's the link to your thread where you stated you couldn't find employment because of that issue.

    Need extra cash to live on? Several options avialable to you-if you have cable TV, cancel it. That's extra money in your pocket. You have internet service and paying a provider. Cancel that and there is extra cash there too. You can also do away without telephone and there would be more money in your pocket from that also.

    All of the above are luxuries, not necessities especially when you're supposedly struggling to stay above water financially. You need to get your priorities in order to learn how to survive your financial crunch at the moment.

    I will try to reply respectfully even if you will not offer the same courtesy to me. I was fired in 2006 for allegedly stealing. In 2007 I posted here seeking advice. In 2008 I acquired IBS-D. I do not pay for cable, internet, or phone, so there is no extra money there. I don't think you know what order my priorities are in but I would appreciate it if you would not make rude assumptions when you don't have all the facts.

    I appreciate the advice. I just felt that Mustang was being a bit rude.

    Not being rude Scott, just offering up some common sense alternatives on how anyone could cut costs and save money.

    I can assume someone is paying for your interenet connection, since you're posting here. I can also assume that you must live with your parents, since you use the word "we" on several occasions while posting, after speaking of your mother & father.

    I can also assume from your other thread "Pretty Scared", it is fact, by your admission that you were fired, it's now on your record which you believe stops you from getting hired anywhere, you stated.

    There is no need to defend yourself for my sake either. I'm just not buying into the excuses you give as to why you cannot work. Irritable Bowl Syndrome is managable and people that do have it, work.

    I've had IBS for years. I hasn't stopped me from working.
    Well,... it has, actually, a couple of times, but then I get back to work.
