Can I please puke now?
Simply put it has been a LONG day.
Jacob is still dealing with a million and one diaper changes. He is keeping milk down for the most part, but his poor rear is red and raw. I took him out quickly (with a bottle of Pedialyte) and got him some Aveeno diaper rash cream. It seems to be helping a lot more than the A&D cream was. Hopefully things will continue to get better and we can go back to eating and drinking normally, but at least he’s nursing some.
Then all H-E Double Hockey Stick broke out this evening. Hubby got a credit card in the mail that he did NOT send for. We called the company and thanks to a zillion red alerts knew that his identity was indeed compromised. We called all of the credit bureaus to alert to fraud and then called the police. So an officer came this evening to take some notes and told us what to do tomorrow and call him back.
*sigh* Why is this world so complicated these days? Why is it SO darn easy to be a victim? Why so many questions tonight?
I am just getting started! My mind is going a million miles a minute.
I guess the real thing that bothers me is that our "lovely" government does not allow US as consumers to put freezes on OUR credit accounts for free? In other words we have to pay to have a freeze put on and taken off if we want to open a line of credit assuming we want to safety net ourselves.
OK I know why – but it is STUPID STUPID STUPID – greedy pigs complicating things which leave us the citizens exposed to all of this garbage. How nice that all of the big corporations can dictate what our government does, thus making all of us so susceptible to this crap!
Oh no! That’s my worst fear! (The identity theft, not the diaper rash . . .although I’m sure that could easily become my worst fear too.) Good luck . . .it always seems like you can’t do too much to protect yourself, which is such a shame.
So sorry! That sounds really frustrating. Hope things get sorted out quickly and painlessly.
Shawna: At least I know the diaper thing will go away. This other garbage could haunt us for a LONG time.
Ugh, it is turning out to be our worst nightmare. Lots of the day spent on the phone getting no where with the pathetic credit card company that we never wanted to do “business” with. The sad part is it is thanks to people being greedy that we are not able to protect ourselves.
Citystreams: Thanks! We shall see how things go when we meet with the detective to further investigate things and fill papers so the credit card company will disclose more information.
I’ve been way behind on reading/commenting. I’m so sorry you ended up in this kind of mess! Is it any closer to being straightened out?
Kim: Hope you are feeling better :)
Thanks! No, we are just scratching the surface now. SO much more to do it makes me dizzy. The layers of BS that you have to do in order to try to put the pieces back together and prove who you are is sick!
