  • Your welcome

  • Yep I do. I get irritable when my bank account is below a certain amount. It's usually not related to wanting to do anything specific and not having the money for it.. its just a general feeling of anxiety.

  • YES stress and worries about finances really gets to me...and it impacts my relationships with my kids at times. I want to do so much more for and with them but money does not allow. As a single parent...the challenges are real but no more real than in 2 parent households. Just that I do not have a mate to fuss with.

  • No. I try and budget wisely so we are not in those positions. They still happen. The difference is though I know that there will be times the plumbing is in need of a plumber, or brakes need to be fixed etc. They have to be done. Why be upset about it?
