I FEEL LIKE SUCH A LOOSER

In October, we have a counting for heat and water bills. As I hardly ever put on heat and control the water I use, the past 28 years I’ve had money back 3000kr ( $442, £ 361, €400) I always calculate with the money for Christmas.

However, this year I am SOOOOO Screwed.

My heat bill has increased with 27%, as another company has bought the company, so instead of getting money back I have to pay 1500kr back. In addition, my monthly payment on heat and water has been raised by 280kr a month.

On top of that, I have extra bills to pay at 2500kr (that I don`t have) and the percentage help I get with my medication ( I buy for more than 17.000kr a year) ran out in mid-October, so I have to pay 1500kr myself in November before I get into the percentage help again.

As for Christmas and postage just to make everything even more depressing; The Danish Post office have elevated postage on a single postcard to four times the normal rate; and that goes with envelopes and presents.

So I have to cut back on Christmas presents this year, both Danish family and you my family – I hope you`ll understand, if you only get a card this year.

I am so sorry if I disappoint you, but I am so low and out of money for November, and we are not even there yet. Therefore, if you know Santa or one of the Guardian Angels I would love you to send them my way.

Oh sweetie, don't ever worry about things like that! You don't have to send me anything at all, ever ever ever! I'm just glad to have you on the other end of an LJ comment or an email, you never have to send me anything!
I'm so sorry that all your payments have increased so much. I'm still struggling with money myself or I'd offer to help you out, I just don't have anything spare at all lately. *huge hugs*

Thank you so much honey, for your kind words and all.
I hope it will get better in a few months.
But you and your Mum are on the - short- list that will get a card and presents.
For being such an awesome friend and writer and for being so awesome and supporting to Sarah. And because I want to ;)

Oh, honey!! I'm so sorry the costs have skyrocketed on you!! And no worries about such things as presents and cards...we are happy to have YOU. And we would be happy to help with the expenses any way we can. What a shock those hikes must have been!

Thank you Darling, if anyone know how I feel you are the closest.
We didn`t have any warning with the heat bill. I always get a lot of money back, so I was just smacked when I got the bills.
I´ll be sure to send you a card though....
Hugs and Love ♥

It is always a nasty shock when something like this happens...makes things all the tighter - like they weren't tight enough to begin with!! Arrghhh...

Aww, darling. Only if you can. Tis the thought that counts with me - and you always give of your heart. I refuse to pick your pocket at the same time!

*SNUGGLES*

Don't worry about sending stuff. I'm not going to even be able to send out cards this year I simply don't have it. Anyway rather have you as a friend. I hope your money situation gets a lot better quick! Keep us informed, we love you.

Don't you worry about it at all! You need to take care of you first. *hugs* Life is sometimes unfair and money worries plague all of us at one time or another. I hope things get better soon, but in the meanwhile don't worry about sending anything. A nice comment with a hug is more than enough!

Thank you honey.
I have an arrangement, with someone that will send my post from Germany, for 1/4 of what I have to pay here from Denmark, so when you get mail with German stamps it might be from me ;)
I also have cut back on presents to people..
Kisses♥♥

That sounds like a good deal. Thank goodness for friends that can help out!

No worries about presents. I'm happy enough just chatting with you here. ♥

Hon, cut back on doing stuff for others and take care of yourself first. People who love you understand and people who don't understand don't deserve your kindness anyway.

You can always offer to send Christmas Cards via email this year. it's not the same, but it's the thought that counts, isn't it?

Thanks Sweetheart,
I have made an arrangement with a guy, that will mail my cards from Germany, for 1/4 of what I have to pay here from Denmark.
I also have cut back on presents to people, as they will be mailed from Denmark.
But I have a list of presents to send, and you are on it ;)
Love you♥
