but, i'm posting this as a way to release.

I am just sitting here crying, I seriously don't know how we are ever going to make it money wise. Every Time we get a great opportunity, we can never get it. Someone else does.. I see people that I personally know all the time that are mean and vicious and they get the jobs. Why? I got my email about not getting the job I interviewed for today, and dh got his phone call about his job today. His job offer would of changed our life. We had to spend money on a rent-a-car just to get him there (yes(for the snarky people), we tried other options before that and it just wasn't possible.)..money we didn't have.

I just don't ever see anything changing. I see people complain about having 3k a month. For us, that would be being rich.We are lucky if we see 1k a month (I doubt we do). I am however thankful for what we do have, there's others out there that are without healthy kids, a apartment, etc.

I just don't know what to do.

Please don't bash me. I see women in this group do and say things that are ridiculous in my opinion but I still offer support.

I hope one day it'll change. I am only 21 but it seems like others my age seem to have it together. I know looks are deceiving but still, it's not a comforting fact.


also, yes we have cut out everything that we could. Yes we are doing all that we can to change the situation.

It always works out.

We make just enough. I can't work & it hurts us a lot :( I'm almost to the point of forcing myself to work at the bar in town :/

Anyways, your not alone. It will work out. Have faith, stay positive, keep trying

Have you tried applying at Walmart?

My boyfriend works at the distribution center (driving a forklift) he makes good money. They trained him and he got benefits after 1 month I think. I'm sure there is a distribution center near. Or just apply at the store because they are always hiring. It may seem like a crummy job, but the benefits make it worth it. Plus you get 10% off at the store.

You'll find something just keep working at it.

It'll get better hun *hugs* try to stay positive. My husband, our daughter and I have been living with my parents for the last 4 years because we haven't had enough money to move out. My husband would get a great trucking job just to get laid off a few months after. He just took an over the road trucking job last month and thankfully makes $450 a week after taxes and after paying for our health insurance (which is $130 a week for the entire family) but now we are paying catch up in bills. I've been employed for 1 1/2 years and still get unemployment because of how bad it is here in Vermont. I'm 25 and my husband is 28. I graduated with a lot of people that have everything that I could imagine BUT they aren't married and don't have children so I would rather have my family and daughter and just barely be able to pay all my bills then to have money to spend on whatever and whenever but not have my family and daughter. It is hard but stay positive something will comes ur guys' way soon :)
