As much as I wanted to get a new heating and for our home, I knew every one of us couldn’t afford it.
My partner and I were retired, and unfortunately, our credit had been maxxed while waiting for our retirement and his disability to go through.
I cursed the government for making us wait for more than five weeks before every one of us could get any help, however every one of us knew every one of us should have been saving. Now, all every one of us could do was wait for the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier to come out to try to repair our gas furnace, just one more time. Now too long ago, I was talking to a buddy of mine who was living with just a space furnace in their home, for over a year now. They had a couple of fans in the summer time and a space furnace they carried with them in the winter. She said they couldn’t afford to purchase a new gas furnace, or to have their Heating and Air Conditioning system fixed. They did what they could, however her partner’s health came first and they didn’t have any money or credit left. I swore this would never happen to our partner and I, however it did. Doctor bills had to be paid, and the insurance never paid all of the bills, however every one of us still had to pay for the insurance. The two of us sat shivering in our home, while every one of us waited for the Heating and Air Conditioning to try to get us some heat. I had a space heater, however it didn’t heat even one room. The two of us thought about moving anywhere else, however every one of us would need to pay rent, and at least our loft was paid for. The two of us will just need to wait for the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier.
