Incase the text is too small: I am an Illustration major junior in college. I have Fibromyalgia, epstien-barr virus, I get sick constantly, and i’ve had bells palsy for 4 months now (second time!). I have medication for the fibromyalgia, a nice dorm and house, a wonderful family, and I am happy. I am very scared too. I can’t find a job, my parents are supporting me. I don’t even know how much money in loans I’ll owe after I graduate, let alone how I’m going to make enough money to pay them. I’m scared that we’re going to run out of money. My step dad came out of retirement to help support the house. My mom works 3 days a week, 12 hour shifts, occasional overtime. She also runs her own business. My brother isn’t going to college anytime soon. He’s already had heart surgery and gets anxious often. He’s 17. Besides that we don’t have the money to send him to college right now. My dad works construction. I worry for him the most. He can barely afford where he lives (My mom and step dad have been close to the edge). If he doesn’t pay enough child support he’ll go to jail. He doesn’t have a car and he got his license taken away because he owes so much child support. He can’t find another job. I worry for myself, my family, my friends. But most of all, I worry for the economy, for the country, for every single one of us.
I AM THE 99%
