trying really hard not to freak out in front of my kids right now...

I am sooooo upset right now. Its really hard to hold it together in front of my kids...I know Im gonna break down as soon as they go to bed. I normally get child support every other Thursday...well today was the day so I went to check my account online this morning, and nothing. I was like ok, dont freak out maybe its late because of the bank holiday yesterday. Well I checked periodically throughout the day, and still nothing. I tried to stay calm all day, and when my kids got home I asked them if their dad had said anything to them about his job or anything the last time they talked to them. They told me he said he was thinking about quitting because he didnt want to do physical labor anymore (he is an underground coal miner). Well, I guess he went ahead and did it. I am a single mom and a full time nursing student...until I graduate (in 5 weeks thank God) and get a job, child support is my only income. I am so mad and upset right now I can hardly sit still. I have no idea what Im going to do! I just did the grocery shopping so thank God we have food for about 2 weeks, but after that...and I need gas to get to school, not to mention Christmas is in 6 weeks!!!! I am so pissed at him for doing this to us right now! He lives with his parents and has no bills, so I guess it's no big deal to him. What a pathetic loser I chose to marry and have kids with. Thanks for reading...I just needed to vent

Ok, Im not trying to be mean, but why should your ex-husband be supporting you?  I mean yes its bad he can just choose not to pay child support, but you shouldn't be living all CS either.  You should eb contributing to your kids welfare the same way that loser you married should be.  JMO.

I'm sorry to hear that. My daughter's father is also a complete loser. He has NO income so i have NO child support and have not recieved a dime from him. Thank God for the rest of my family or i have no idea what i would do .I am also stressing about christmas but i figure as long as they have a few presents under the tree, they won't be upset. Kids are kids, they'll be happy with what they get!  Hope things get better for you mama!

This....I am sure that it is really tough but it shouldnt be up to him anymore to support you. I hope you find a way thru this and congrats on school!

I agree with this,  why should he have to pay all of YOUR bills for you.  I understand helping out but not paying for everything.
