Dh lost his job right before thanksgiving. We have to get back on food stamps. I never thought we would ever be back this low. I have been skipping meals just to make sure we have enough till we get our food stamp stuff. I feel myself resenting my husband. And I shouldn't. Its not his fault Find myself sleeping a lot lately. I lock myself in my room just to get away from it all. No point in this really, just need to get it off my chest.

So many families are suffering from job loss and money problems.  I am sorry that this is your situation right now.  But no one knows what is right around the corner.  You are isolating which is what depression thrives on.  Your husband is probably pretty depressed himself.  Make an effort to talk to a friend or family member or even clergy to vent and get someone else's thoughts and suggestions.  Please keep posting here and let us know how things are going for you.  Love and hugs and prayers to you.

I'm sorry you and your family are going thru such hard times. Try to have a little somethng, even some soup when you aren't eating as much til the food stamps. I hope your dh will find a job and things will improve for you all real soon. You and dh need to give each other lots of hugs going thru these hard times. Hope you feel better

I'm sorry, I feel your pain. My dh hasn't worked in a year, and it's getting pretty bad, I'm starting to get really angry at him.

I'm so sorry things are rough right now.  I hope things improve soon.  Is your husband looking for work?
