I work two jobs. One is weekends the other is Monday to Thursday from home (independent contractor so I only get paid for the time I'm hired. Or in "tips" part of getting hired involves time where I may not be getting paid for that time like traditional job such as PR/advertising) I am exhausted but we are struggling. I always feel bad that we are in low income housing. But with dh in and out of the hospital. Him getting a job isn't possible. I'm tired and exsauted. And yes I've gone to college. I work with disabled persons, I went to school for this because its something I enjoy.

Dh can't get disability due to our (minimal) savings. We have talked to a few lawyers. But they won't help us.
FYI I am not in the states and the only disability is not based on pervious income.

I saw other welfare posts. not everyone on welfare is a lazy bum.


I guess I am just tired and venting before I start work.

What was your major? You have a great many grammar issues in this post, which makes me question the validity of your post. 

How old are your children? How old are you?

I've not even heard of that as an advanced degree option in the US.  Is it a certificate? 2 year? 4 year? 

How long has DH been disabled? What's his disability? 

It doesn't seem like you have a full time position at all?

I know this sounds terrible, but could your dh get disability if you divorced him on paper?

No. We have common law here. So we would have to totally split. And I'm not leaving him.

You need to find a job that's full-time and forget all these part-timers jobs.

I wouldn't think you would, just wanted to see if it would help legally. Sorry you are in such a tough spot, it sounds like you are working your tail off.
