After years of unstable living, a user shares, “I still get massive anxiety with money even though I can save almost $900 each month after all expenses…It never quite leaves you, does it?” “Don’t think it does,” replies another.
One fellow keeps a thorough monthly “budget book” but still wakes up in fear now and then, afraid that they’ve forgotten to pay a bill. At times, they’d get out of bed and double-check despite knowing everything’s been taken care of.
A user shares how their dreams include the vision of getting paid, but the money goes right into the wind because of the debt they owe for everything. Unfortunately, it’s not just a nightmare because it’s true.
One member mentions having significant anxiety about their problems as they wake up between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. every night. Their rent has increased four years in a row, now at a staggering $2270, with the power bill being $800 monthly.
