I know that I'm not the only single mom out there that works there butt off to provide for there family. But I'm seriously frustrated; I do have a good paying job. I'm a Registered Dental Assistant and I have been working in the dental field going on about 14 yrs now. I normally work M-Th and there are Friday's that I fill in for one of the other assistants that call's in sick or has something they need to do. I even fill in for some of the front desk people thinking that it will be a little more on my pay ck. I've even since taken over cleaning the office at work to make even a little more extra money to help me out and yet the more that I make the more in taxes gets taken out so there for I am back to square on. I'm also learning how to do financial services and teaching people how to be able to be debt free and saving for retirement with in a certain amount of yrs and I'm not making anything with that yet. So basically I'm working 3 jobs and still struggling financially. I can't get help from any of the local places because they say that I make to much money.
Is there anyone else out there going through the same thing as I am that can give me some hopeful advice? I seriously live pay ck to pay ck and never have anything left over. I've never taken my son on one trip and he is 15 yrs old now.
I'm feeling so discouraged and depressed and feel like I have failed myself as well as my son.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
