Feeling Depressed.....

  1. I realize that there are more important issues than the ones that are presently occurring in my life such as sudden death, world hunger, war, abuse, genocide, etc.....but I really need to vent.

    The dependable car that I have been driving for the past 6 years started to have major mechanical problems that would have incurred more costs than the actual value of the car. So I took the plunge and treated myself to a new, 2006 Toyota Corolla last week. I fell in love with the car's smooth suspension and wonderful gas mileage.

    I had the car for only 6 days when someone ran a stop sign and destroyed my car, rendering it inoperable. I am now stuck with a rental car. My insurance company has not even started to handle the claim because they state that my policy is "so new". I have had to miss school and work due to the lack of transportation, aches, pains, and isolation. I am also paying hefty fees out of my pocket for the rental car because my insurance will not yet pay the rental car reimbursement. If the Toyota is a total loss, I really need a check right now to cover the loss. If the Toyota can be salvaged, I desperately need it repaired soon because the wait is too long.

    Perhaps my sweet Toyota was never meant to be. I want to cry.

    Thanks for listening to my vent. I feel angry and sorrowful right now.

    So sorry you're going through such a bad patch. Sometimes when it rains, it pours, and every rotten thing that can possibly happen seems to hit us all at once. But thank God, you are ALIVE and in relatively decent shape......as we all know, not everyone makes it out of these things in one piece!


    Here's hoping for brighter days ahead, my dear. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    That's awful!

    I was devastated when my new Chevy had a (very tiny) ding from some idiot opening his truck door too wide in a parking lot. I can't imagine how I'd feel with a six-day-old car completely totalled with me in it!!

    I hope you're ok and without any injuries, and I hope that the insurance company can move quickly to help you.

    Would it be any help at all to talk to the dealer who sold you the car? Because obviously, you're now in the market for another car, and maybe if he's real nice, he can keep you as a repeat customer....

    I'm so sorry to hear about your car (but I'm relieved you're not hurt)! I have no words of advice, only that I hope things will get sorted out SOON. Hugs.

    That is really a rough week!! I am glad you didn't get hurt though. Keep on those insurance people- you can't help that the other person ran a stop sign!!! and I hope you get a chance to celebrate a good Thanksgiving.

    That is enough to depress a person.

    I'm so sorry... you're in a bind, for sure. I do hope you can get things straightened out with the insurance, etc., so you can be up and running the roads again real soon. :kiss
