I'm really scared about our financial situation. Yeah, I know...join the club. Here I am, not working, and bills keep piling up.

We've never struggled...still aren't at this point, but it's not looking good for the future. We've lost 45% of our retirement savings. That is scary.

I pray that Richard's company stays afloat, but who knows what is going to happen. Ugh!

I think I need to wait on Jake's orthodontic treatment. I feel bad, but I can't afford it and my ex can't help me much at this point either.

I am really stressed. Very nervous.

I know you don't know me, but (((hugs)) just the same.

I have 2 daughters and 1 step son to support, only half of what you have, but I understand the fear that creeps up when you have kids to support. If it was just us I wouldn't worry so much, but the kids... they deserve the best. It's tough.

One last ((hug)) because if ya ask me, you can never have too many when you're feeling down.

I feel the same way. I haven't been sleeping well this week because of this financial stress. And those of us who have tried to do the right tings (save, not overspend, etc) are getting the worst end of it. We are down about 45 -50% too. And i have two kids heading to college next year. Insane times.
But, love your blog. I'm not sure why you don't feel good at it. I have liked what I have seen!

I am right there with you. With two back surgeries in the past year, I'm so limited as to what I can do. I can't sit for too long, and standing is the same. My mom and I are working on launching a business from home, but it costs money to start a business! Yep, right there with you on the stress and nerves.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog - make sure to come back!
