I am one of the federal employees who is out of a job while the government is shutdown. I just moved to a more expensive apartment because my asthma requires a nonsmoking, non-marijuana property. Unfortunately, those requirements in a residence do not come cheap. In addition, I have had a lot of injuries this year which required a lot of appointments and an expensive MRI. I haven’t met my deductible yet nor received most of the bills. If they come in the next two months, I’m not going to have enough money to make it. If I can’t make my finances, I will be under a security investigation and could lose my job permanently.
