Oh sweetie... I know it is stressful to deal with idiocy and also with family. The best advice I can give you is to ignore people. I don't suffer idiots very well and we would have a " Come to Jesus meeting." . You do have control over some of these things- you can just wash your hands of #3. It does not sound to me as it directly involves you or your children, so I wouldn't worry about it or stress over it. As far as your Mom goes... I've had to cut my Father from my life in the past 3 years due to his choice of doing drugs and cheating on my mother- I send him pics of the kids 2x a year and talk to him maybe 1-2 times per year...he lives about 30 minutes away too. It's hard to cut ties with a family member, but sometimes it is the best thing for everyone involved. 

Most people work with idiots! LOL ..... I did when I was in the restaurant biz as a Chef so I understand. As far as your boss cutting your checks- you can probably do something about it. Is there someone you can appeal to? Maybe talk to an attorney if you are not getting your rightful pay? 

I can't help with the depression other than to say to eat well and exercise and maybe that will help?? I don't know much about depression..

I'm sorry that you are having a hard time. Keep your chin up gal! You can vent to us all you want to and we will be here for you.
