23 Mar Illness – Time Off and Mounting Bills
In December 2014 I became really ill and was starting to have regular days off work because I felt so weak.
Wage Drops – Full Time to Part Time
Work was understanding but eventually I was put into a part-time position that was only casual. My wages dropped from $70,000 to $45,000. My illness will not allow me to go back to full time employment in my old job.
On the Mend – Bills Start Coming In
I am now starting to control my sickness and the medical bills have stopped coming in, however I still have to spend a fair bit on going to appointments and ongoing medications.
Mounting Travel Costs
Work has become steady but my casual position is about 60km from home which is costing me a fortune on car expenses.
Talking to the guys at Active Debt – they helped me to consolidate my date into one monthly payment. My stress levels have dropped and I am focussing hard on getting a job closer to home to reduce costs as well. When everything was going wrong I just couldn’t find answers it was all too hard. Now I can plan out my time and money and life is getting a little easier.
