I need some advice and opinions please. I am so confused.
My family is in a bad way financially. My dh is suffering from severe depression and is not working. I am in the process of getting him either in patient or partial hospitalization treatment, but this is going to be a long road. I will support him through it, that is what a spouse does.
My salary is NOT sufficent to support us, we are drowning. His mother has offered to allow us to live in her house till we get on our feet. My plan is to attend LPN school for a year and then make enough money to support us. She is actually the one who suggested this route, she took it herself when my dh was younger and she had 2 kids to support.
I found out last night that a local college has a scholar ship program for the field that I really WANT to go into, but it would be at least 2 years more of school then I already have. The clincher for me is that the terms of the scholarship are a commitment to work for a specific company for 2 years after completing the program. It is the company I want to work for! It would make good money. But I don't want to be in school for 2 years if it means his poor mom is supporting my entire family for that extra time. My dh is a good man, but his mental health is very poor. He WANTS to be well and is trying, but I cannot count on his ability to work. I hate that, but it's true.
