My life has been pretty hard since Dec of 2009. My husband got hurt at work and has been home since. He was on workmans come for 6 months then went back to work and then was diagnosed with Epilepsi, and ended up loosing his job. He has been on unemployment since. I have looked for a job and have not been able to get one. I have had interviews, but havent gotten the job. We are barely making it finacailly. I starte selling Scentsy to try to make some extra money and its not going very well. I am starting to loose my strength. My family car is getting repoed, we have another car but there is 6 of us and the car only fits 5. Easter is coming and I cant get my kids anything. Tonight was the school carnival and we couldnt go because I didnt have the money. At play group today I asked a lady what she does to get parties. I said I wanna make fliers but I dont have ink, and they said to to so and so its only like $5. Right now $5 might as well be $500. Im so tired of all of this. I try hard to be postive and I remind myself that people are worse off then me, and living on the street. But this is just about rock bottom for my family. I need to be strong. But I feel like I am about to loose my control. Im not asking for help I just need to vent. I feel so alone. I dont have any help. My parents died when I was 16, my husbands parents are just as broke as we are. The one person I could have asked for help from died almost a month ago unexpectedly. I need something to look forward to. If I had something to look forward to Id be ok. I could gear my energy into thinking about the good thing thats about to happen. But nothing I try pans out. I just really need to vent. I need to get this off my chest or I will loose it and end up being mean to my hubby and my kids.
Please dont tell me to count my blessings and that things will look up. I do count my blessings every single day! I try to think things will look up. I know people are trying to be supportive when I they say that and I appreciate it but I just cant hear that anymore. Thanks for taking 5 min out of your life to read this. Hugs to all!
