  • Oh, yes.

    I'm there now. DH has been out of work for nearly five months now. I'm working two jobs.

    There are definitely days that I want to do NOTHING. But crawling under rock would only dig me deeper, you know? You can't just curl up and die. As Dory said, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..."

  • When my 1st husband left me I was really down. I had never completed my college degree because his came first and he would always support me. I ended up having 3 teenage daughters at home to take care of and people telling me I'd never be able to hold onto my dreamhome. I let it tick me off without ever telling anyone. At night I'd cry but in the mornings I did everything I could to show my ex and everyone else that I could make it on my own.

    I have only 10 years left on my 30 year home loan (5 year early payoff!) and am doing great. Don't get discouraged but realize that there is an end in sight and you can make it.

  • remember a hard time that YOU went through, it seemed huge then, but i bet it seems smaller now, find strength in yourself, you have been strong in the past, you can be strong now

  • You are strong enough to get through this.
