My DH & I are in a horrible financial condition & virtually nobody knows. He has major debt, partially from a divorce but also from some very bad decisions he made. He is considering bankruptcy. I have school loans & a personal loan. We are just a mess. We have to move b/c our lease is up & our landlord wants to sell the house, not rent it again. I have no idea how we are going to swing the deposits or even if we can find a place to rent with our credit histories. DH & I both work but we can barely swing the rent & I have been know to search my house for change so I can buy groceries.
So, my question is this? Is anyone else drowning? If so, does your family know? How did you tell them? Is it better to keep it a secret & just struggle along? Did you end up asking anyone for help? If so, who & how did it work out for you?
Sorry to post anon--I rarely do, but I am too embarrassed, even on here. Thanks.
