I have been on foot for 3-1/2 years (my ex got parking tickets on my car) and was told I NEED a car for clinicals because all of them are not accessible by public transportation. So I spent my entire tax refund check to pay them off (not enough left for a car lol). But I still smile...

I too want to become a Nurse Anesthetist. I am from Texas and would love to move north so UIC was actually one of the schools I am hoping to apply to. That is if I make the grade; so far I am off to a good start. You seem to have really made it through some tough time and I hope I can be just as strong. You are an inspiration.

And my husband's sister lives in Texas where he wants to move to be away from my family (which honestly is never involved in our lives at all)...but another story...You remind me of me when I only had myself- which is the same as now. Let me know any questions about UIC and I'll be MORE than happy to assist you.

your living expenses now include payments on outstanding bills (credit cards, medical...).
you spend more than you make
It is irrelevant how you got there. the real question is
what are you going to do about it now.
no one is criticizing but these are the facts of your financial situation as you posted them. You cannot make financial decisions based on emotions OR excuses.
you would be wise to investigate some financial sites that deal with getting out of debt and the roots of overspending.
