Hey all, just an update (none of it good!)

June 9th, 2009 at 02:27 pm

I haven't been here in a while. To say things have been crummy would be the understatement of the century.

On the financial side, my finances are in complete ruins. I'm in such awful shape. I've been a member here for a while now, and things have gotten worse. Work has been painfully slow. I work the second job still, but not as many hours are available as before. Basically work has been so slow my pay checks are HALF of what they used to be. When they were big paychecks I never had money left over, but at least all the bills got paid. I can't even begin to tell you how far behind I am on some bills, how far the interest rates that were already high are jacked up, etc. There's a lot of whining I could do on the subject, but you guys know the gist of it.) I'm just glad I can pay the mortgage, keep the electric and the heat and water on...

This is SO incredibly stressful, just everything right now.

On top of the financial issues, on a more personal note, my husband and I are separated. A few months ago his health issues started to disappear, which I was super excited that we could FINALLY be a 'normal' couple and he could get a job again!!! YAY, right? No. All I will say is "secrets, secrets are no fun. Secrets, secrets hurt someone." After he said he wouldn't go to marriage counseling, I told him I think it would be best if he left, and he happily went. We're just in limbo now... he's still not working and I'm here by myself trying to pick up the pieces... glad I stuck by his side endlessly while he was sick all these years, being the only one working and supporting us!! Nice way to say THANKS. >: (

Think I'm going to go clean, balance my check book and try to figure out how I can pay some freaking BILLS!!

    Oh, I'm sorry things are not looking so good for you. Keep your chin up, and take one day at a time. Sometimes it's hard to see what the future will hold, and it's often brighter than you think it will be.

    ((hugs)) I'm sorry to hear things aren't going well. Is there any way to find a different job(s)...higher paying? Good luck. Keep moving forward.

    oh i am so sorry to hear about your troubles. i had wondered about you. i know it won't help anything financially or physically, but everyone here supports you and is hoping for the best. just keep focused on the light at the end of the tunnel, and as overwhelming as everything seems, just do your best to get through it all.

    Perhaps having your husband out of the picture will help you focus on what you need to. I hope things look brighter soon.
