I recently was laid off my job. I'm trying to deal with it some days are better than others. I said I was going to spend some time with my kids while they're out of school and my mom is coming to visit from New Jersey at the end of the month and after that I will look for another job, but my husband is not letting me get my few minutes, constantly telling me about jobs that are posted,updating my resume. I'm starting to feel like he's trying to push me into another job already!  I've been working full-time for the past 9 years, being let go from a job is a first for me now I want little off. He's causing me to feel a lot of anxiety, depression, uneasy about my decision to take a little break.  I'm going to go back to work, I want him to get off my back about work.

Girl hang in there I feel that you should take some time for yourself and spend some time with your mom.... If you have been working all that time and never had a break than you need to have a little time for you!!!! He would just have to get use to not having that Xtra income..... "If you work your self to DEATH than who's going to be there for him and your kids" Ask him that.................
