I hate people calling and asking for money. I know that it's a bill we made and we should pay it, I know God doesn't want us to have debt or owe people money but doctors and hospitals should not charge so much. I think they take advantage of the situation. 99% of the time we have no choice but to go to the doctor, we're sick or having a baby. Then even AFTER insurance we end up with $4,000 worth of medical bills. Then we have five different people calling us trying to get us to pay them and then I freak and tell the poor lady trying to get me to pay that we are living on one SMALL income and there are seventeen different places trying to get our money that we don't have. can you tell I just got off the phone with one? grrr. I wasn't a very nice person. I didn't cuss or say anything bad to her but I got very emotional and told her there was nothing I could do. She tried to get Eugene's information about where he worked and stuff and when I asked her why she needed to know that she stumbled all over herself for an answer, so that made me more mad. But I told her when we got money I'd send her some, but for now to stop calling my cell phone. I need to win the lottery or something. do you have to play the lottery to win it? I guess the odds are about the same either way huh?

Awww, they probably wanted to know Eugene's info so they could garnish his wages. It's a good thing you didn't tell her or you'd be getting an even smaller income. I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you could look into getting a loan? It depends on whether or not you'd be able to make the monthly payments. It'd be better than having to pay $4000 all at once, though.

Hmm... I've never had a comment that said I was Josh AND Beth... Wonder when that started?

Is it fixed now?

I don't think getting a loan would be a good idea, because then we'd be paying interest on our doctor bills. if we just make monthly payments to the doctors we don't have to pay interest then we save a lot of money. see?
