Medical bills Looming

Is it strange that being on a budgeting site for this long, I'm still struggling with keeping money?
I just got a new job in the beginning of November, but I haven't gotten paid yet. I just got my mail from a friend of mine and apparently one of my medical bills told me that if I didn't pay by the DEC 3 (which was the day I picked up my mail*) I'd be forwarded to a collection's agency for payment. I know my credit is probably down the tubes now... But instead of paying part of this bill I ended up spending a 110 check... 20 on a bus pass, 20 on a phone card for more minutes, 10 for a friend, and about 25 on fast food for me and a friend. I still have the remainder... I just don't want to pay that bill yet. I have 35 in a check I need to cash now.. But I want to buy food-groceries specifically... which I haven't done since early october. I wouldn't get more than the basics.
It doesn't help my job isn't going to pay me nearly enough to pay off much. Let alone get me back on my feets... its irritating. I have so much looming over my head right now and its something I'm just going to worry about until things can even out... I don't know how I'm going to pull this off... But I know I can... somehow...
