"Sometimes your knight in shining armor ...is just a douchebag in tin foil!!"
Just got an email today that 3 student loans that I put on an extended graduated payment plan while pregnant are going back up to their regular payments in a couple of months... doubling what they are now. I had to do that option because my XWH jackass wouldn't sign forms for me to put those loans on forbearance...but I found a loophole where I could at least cut the payments in half. I had no choice. I had started my job like 4 months prior and my employer was more than generous in holding my position and being understanding about my pregnancy so soon after being hired.... but I had to take 6 weeks leave without pay. I had to do something drastic!
I found out this week also....that my health insurance is going up about $100 a month and I found out my daycare expense is going up about $25 a month....even before I make my first payment...so basically I will be paying out in daycare what I used to pay out in rent.
I'm feeling slightly discouraged. I will actually be in a worst place financially but luckily my dad will be there for support. I will be paying more out a month than I did before I had to pay for daycare and more student loan debt.
I just hope that things improve... the next few years are gonna be rough.
