Careless mistakes due to stress

December 9th, 2012 at 02:16 am

I have found myself not paying attention to what I am doing with money lately and also not checking receipts and being over charged on many things.

My mother has terminal cancer and I spend my time between her house and my own. I stay at my parents house three to four days a week and then home the rest of the time. My parents live 70 miles from my home. It is very stressing worrying about a loved one with a terminal disease. I'm so thankful I don't have to work a full time job and try to manage that as well, I just don't know if I could do it.

Just in the last week I have been over charged $87.00
for prescriptions, I didn't even notice until I had left the pharmacy and had to return for a refund. I've been charged twice for the same thing and didn't notice until later. I can't account for my money, who knows what I've bought or where I've put it. I found a one hundred dollar bill at the bottom of my purse that I didn't even know was there, normally I'd know every penny that is in my purse.

I hope by using this blog I can keep my mind focused more on keeping up with this and not over spending in areas where I've really gotten careless.

    It's understandable, with your mind on your mother. Be sure to take some small breaks for yourself to help clear your mind. Maybe short walks on that beautiful property of yours to renew yourself.

    Of course, it is understandable that money might be lower on your list. Family and people are the most important.

    Take care of yourself, too.

    That is an incredibly stressful situation, so it is understandable that it could lead to some forgetfulness -- please do not be too hard on yourself. (And hey, it is far better to have some insurance of finding $100, than wondering where $100 disappeared to.) Take good care, and I wish you well.
