lost my job

So i just lost my job due to the glorious economy and Im pretty bummed. I mean I didnt like my job or the hours (i worked nights). I never saw my bf and I was so tired 24/7 because I was up all day with my son, but I made decent money, I could save for things, buy my son nice things, and I could go out to dinner with my friends or bf occasionally not to mention I HATE asking my bf for money. Before I got this job I worked about 10 hours a week beacause I didnt have a sitter for my son and me and my bf fought all the time because I didnt bring in any money. I mean we can make it off what he makes but we are gonna have to start cutting corners. We were living comfortably and now we wont be. He said he isnt mad at me now but I know soon it will start,not like I can just take my son in for an interview if one should arise. I like working and I want to work but I dont know how long it will be before I can get a job. Some hugs would really be nice right about now!!

 I know how you feel.  I was laid off back in October, and it WAS a job that I loved, and made good money.  I had to take a paycut to get back to work as soon as I did (not much of one, but the paycut still hurt).

Your BF should NOT be mad at your for this.  The economy is terrible, and things are probably going to get worse before they get better.  If he's going to give you a hard time, finding another BF might actually be easier than finding another job right now.  That's JMO, but he needs to be supportive of you, not bitching about you not having a job.
