When the recession started my parents lost our house and all of our money that they had. Now the three of us live in a small apartment, and my parents never went to college so they have crap jobs. We used to be able to have fun and do whatever we wanted, now it's like a miracle if we even go to the movies. As for me I can't get a job. I've applied to almost everywhere in the small town we live in, but no one's interested. I had to stop going to college, because of my parents inability to pay, but I can't qualify for financial aid because my parents make "too much". We have a lot of medical bills, because my parents are older and have major health problems. And I'm not a single parent, military, or a minority, so there's no scholarship potential either. I have no luck with dating, and since I'm no longer "rich" or whatever like before, all of my friends disappeared, because I can't pay for all of them anymore. I've gained about 55 pounds since high school ended two years ago, and I yo-yo weight all the time due to past anorexia-type eating problems which have probably killed my metabolism. I never wanted to be anorexic, but I had chronic stomachaches growing up, so I couldn't eat without feeling like I was gonna die. And everything is pretty much going downhill with my parents, and it always seems to go from bad to awful. So yeah that's pretty much my life...sucking.
