I just wanted to write because I am extremely depressed, anxiety ridden, scared, angry and many more emotions because my husband lost his job two days ago and now I have to go back to work full time so I am no longer a SAHM. And my full time job isnt even going to cover living expenses. It is EXTREMELY stressful and not being able to spend a cent on anything but extreme necessities (food,gas,clothes & utilities) has become very hard and tiresome. I know I should be grateful for what we do have (and I am) but its very hard to be optimistic :(

I'm so sorry that you are going through a tough time. My family is going through a similar situation. I am trying to find a full-time job to make ends meet as well. My children are in 14 and 16 now. I have been a SAHM for the last 10 years. My husband has a job, but it's pretty shaky right now. The company has put a pay freeze on the employees and have already let several people go. My daughter will be graduating next year and going off to college. We are only buying necessities and you are right, it is very, very hard. I am having a hard time finding a full-time job.. I worry and get down and then I just pray about it and try to leave it in God's hands. My husband and I keep open communication and try to build each other up. Just because things seem bad now doesn't mean it will last forever. THINGS WILL GET BETTER!!! Think of this as a temporary set back and stay strong. Attitude is everything.
