So, yesterday, in a fit of money-induced melancholy (also known as financial stress), I vented online in what I thought was a facetious post. Turns out, there is no font for hyperbole or exaggerating-for-comedic-effect.
The exact post was:
Just did the math. I may not get to eat this next fortnight. *weeps*
I also feel very guilty.
So, first, let me apologise to everyone I scared or made stressed on my behalf. I thought I was being clear in my facetiousness, but clearly was not. I'm so, so sorry! While, like most adults in this economy, stressed financially, I'm actually not starving, nor am I likely to starve. I do have a loving family nearby who wouldn't let that happen, if I ever did get that desperate.
I'm stressed, but fine.
Thank you all so much for the flood of awesome I received last night. Hopefully I won't have to lean on it, but it's really lovely to know that I have an amazing group out there willing to lend a hand.
You are all really wonderful people and I'm so, so grateful for you.
I promise to be more clear about my humour/mood next time I post, and I'll try not to post when I'm frustrated. I'm sorry if I made anyone worry!
