Can you dig into your feelings on this a little more?

- What part of the idea rubs you the wrong way?
- What do you think would be a better alternative to help you protect you from scams or splurges?

I decided against it. I like being in control I found out once started its really hard to stop. Probably have to go to court. My case manager doesn't think i really need it.

Good for you! Do you still have a few guardrails in place that you yourself have control over?

Well, Aviza, it seems to me like you are approaching this with your head on straight and your eyes open. I am in favor of you meeting with the finance guy. Meet with him and see if you like him or not. He might be full of all sorts of great ideas to help you manage your money successfully.

Remember, honey, this is your decision to make. Like I said, it seems to me like you are going through this carefully, getting feedback, and thinking as you go. You are there, this is your income you earn and you see your life from the inside. I think you'll do great at it!! xoxox
