It Feels Like There's No Way Out

The plumber just fixed the pipes in my kitchen and charged me $375 for about an hour's work. It takes me 3 or 4 days to make that much money. I feel ripped off. How can screwing some tubes together merit such a high amount of money for labor. It's more than a lawyer would make in an hour. I make less than about $15 per hour, and I have to work 10-12 hour days to make ends meet. I graduated from college in the top 3 percent of my class with a degree that apparently is useless in terms of a better paying job, so I drive a truck. I feel pain in my head and chest, like I can't relax for a minute. I can't find anything to comfort me. I'm not bad because of this however. This doesn't make me a bad person. I feel like I don't matter. It feels like someone hit me in the face with a bat, with the force of a tank.

Our ac was out. It was unbearably hot. I could not afford to call the repair man. So we suffered for a week. When I had money I called. The guy came in and was here for 10 minutes. Said someone hit the shut off switch. He just flipped a switch. Then he charged me $100.
