A moment in my life..

Angelo heard that some student loan lenders will forgive loans due to serious illness. Since I have major student loans we thought this should be something we look into.

So today, I called one of my lenders. I told him my medical situation and that I was wondering if there was anything they could do to help us with the balance. He said absolutely, there were 2 ways to proceed, first if you are unable to work for 5 years or more, and the other, he gently said, would happen if the person with the loan passes away.

He was very kind and sensitive to my now teary voice. I quickly told him I understood what he was saying and I would get any further information from their website.

I hung up the phone and wanted to lose my mind, but decided to take a long, relaxing bath and a nap to clear my head. I did both, and they kind of helped…

    So sorry, honey. It must be unimaginably hard when the more everyday things start to feel malicious and overwhelming. You continue to be smart about taking care of yourself, and I’m glad the bath helped a bit. Love you very much.

    it really does come at you from all sides, doesn’t it? these are the things that the rest of us couldn’t possibly know about, or understand, except when you bravely let us in to your world. i keep reminding myself that i can be distracted by my life and not have to think about you having cancer…you and angelo can’t hide… my wish for you today is that the movie Bridesmaids would hurry up and come out on dvd so that you can have a good laugh with your friends! if there is a movie out there that will force laughter, that one is it! until then, i send you a gentle hug and the wish for more smiles than tears today. i ❤ u
