Taking Back Control
Saturday, May 23, 2020      5 comments

This past Thursday, my friend and I met up at her new house. We measured the 2 non-master bedrooms (either of which I can take). Then we went a furniture store. The worker was very nice. We looked at the beds, dining tables, desks, and dress... Read more
Reached My Pre-Vegas Weight!!!
Thursday, May 21, 2020      5 comments

Today, I weighed in at 164.3 pounds!!! My goal was to reach 165 pounds or less!! The last time I weighed 165 pounds was right before my 2019 vacation to Las Vegas! To be frank, though, I haven't been putting too much effort to lose weight; I ... Read more
Worked It Out With My Friend
Tuesday, May 19, 2020      6 comments

I haven't blogged in a while. I have been thinking about not blogging on Spark anymore, because most of the time, my blogs aren't even weight related. Also, I have been very transparent about my life on here, and I'm not sure that that's a goo... Read more

Last year, before my friend bought her house, she and I were thinking about renting a 2 bedroom apartment together, but due to my limited income, I couldn't afford it. Then we started talking about my possibly renting a room from her once she b... Read more

Please see my previous 2 blogs. I called the SSA worker 1 more time, and she actually picked up this time! :) She was very nice, and spent an hour on the phone with me! Since I have over $2,000 in assets, my Medicaid will FINALLY get cut o... Read more
Okay, It Wasn't A Scam After All
Tuesday, May 05, 2020      2 comments

Please see my previous blog. Just now, my dad got our mail, and gave me a letter from SSA. It said that I indeed had an appointment today at 12:30 pm. :( I called the lady back right away, but she didn't pick up, so I left a voice mail; I apol... Read more
Scam?

Today, I got a call from a nearby city (not mine) from an unknown number, so I didn't pick up. The person left me a message; she said that she was calling from the Social Security Administration (SSA) in regard to "our" 12:30 pm appointment. S... Read more
Got My Treatment Plan

I went to my second appointment with my orofacial pain specialist today. My CT scan results were ready. The doctor said that I have tension headaches exacerbated by TMJ. So, now I finally know that I do indeed have TMJ. :( He said that my pro... Read more

I want to say something. Some of you may know that I have come a long way financially. I grew up on welfare; my dad was unable to hold down a job, and my mom only worked part time at their church. We lost our house when I was 8 years old, and... Read more

Yesterday, I was just about to post another blog, but unfortunately, my computer crashed, and I was too lazy to write it all over again. I titled that blog "Grateful", because I realized how privileged I have become. Yesterday, I went to A... Read more

Last night at dinner, I casually asked my dad if he spent the money my sister and I gave him for his birthday, and he said that he lost it! This broke my heart, because we each gave him $100, and that's about a day's pay for me. :'( My dad thin... Read more
To Rent or Buy?
Saturday, April 25, 2020      5 comments

Growing up, my family didn't have a house, so it has always been my American Dream to buy my own home. However, I live in LA, and even though I project that I'll crack $60,000 a year within 3 years, I don't think I'll ever be able to buy a home... Read more

It was 95 degrees in Los Angeles today! Thank God I work in an air-conditioned building! When I got home, I opened 2 letters from Medicare. They refuse to pay for any of the services I got from Kaiser (my hospital) recently. I'm not surp... Read more

This morning, my dentist finally called me back. He again recommended that I see the orofacial pain specialist, so I finally made an appointment (for today!). Thankfully, the specialist's office is only 10 minutes away from my apartment. ... Read more
