Anyone here have to deal with watching their savings dwindle to less than half because of circumstances out of their control (ie: medical bills, plane tickets, etc)? how did you deal with the accompanying low/depression that followed?
Recently (2 months) ago i had a procedure done here in taiwan that cost me almost 2,000CAD. None of it was covered by NHI.
THen i went home for the holidays (money wasn’t used out of my main savings) and ended up spending almost 2,000US on a different problem that i had no idea about.
Now, here I am in shock and depressed that a year’s worth of savings (10,000 CAD) is almost at half… of course, it’s good i had it to cover my ass, but it’s painful to see it almost gone.
I know i can save it again, but i’m still really bummed nonetheless and i feel like a loser teacher who hasn’t a pot to piss in at the moment. No work until feb 14th cause not enough students signed up for winter camp…
