Facing Financial Hardships

What a week! But it’s not over yet, you head out to the mailbox to get the mail. You’re hoping something good comes and not another bill that you have to figure out how to pay. You get your mail and as you're thumbing through it on the way back to the house, not really paying attention to where you’re walking, you trip and fall. In trying to get up you realize your right arm is hurt. You manage to get up and get into the house and it is decided by all that a trip to the emergency room is in order. You groan from the pain and from the additional expense this is going to cost.
Once you’ve been seen and your arm x-rayed, what you feared as happened … you’ve broken your arm. This means a visit to an orthopedic doctor, follow up visits and more money that you will have to come up with, not to mention how this will limit what you can do to help during this time of unemployment.
How are you going to deal with this unexpected expense?
Where are you mentally?
