What Happened????????

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

I never thought I would be dealing with this again in my life. My DH was laid off 2 weeks ago, and we are now living without health insurance, and on my income. I am a waitress and my wages don't even begin to cover our monthly bills. The stress level in my home is unbearable, and I just want to sit on my couch and forget everything. I have my DD's who are both in college, my oldest is pretty much on her own, and pays her own bills etc, the other however has no job, and is not doing much to find one either. I am not only scared for my children, but for my DH and myself. I have too many issues to not have any health insurance, and don't know what I am going to do once the time comes to refill my prescriptions.

GGGRRRRRR I believe that the lord will provide, and that he will watch over us, but some days that is hard remember.

Some days I feel like the whole world is falling down around me. The state of Wisconsin is going through some rough decisions, and that weighs on my mind as well.

    I feel for you. I was laid off last week, and this is the first time in my life I will be collecting unemployment.We were fortunate enough to get on my husband's health insurance in a pinch, but it's costly. Feeling pretty worthless, and for the past few weeks (with knowing the inevitable) I was piling in the food. In my second full day of unemployment, I have been trying very hard to count my calories, but it is not easy. It is stressful here too. I hope your DH finds work soon. I am starting to look in the Cities (relocate?) and as far away as Rochester and Eau Claire.

    These are very, very difficult times. I am waiting for an economic turn, but it seems so far away. I'm with you though. Good luck to you and your family.

    Have no fear my angel.....

    Surely there are some kind of agencies in your areas who help people out with the cost or some of the cost of prescriptions, like a local community health centers or church's near by. Hopefully you have them in your area.

    I know this can be scary times BUT the BRIGHT side is that at least you are TOGETHER and not going thru this challing time alone, seriously.

    with his unemployment and serverance pay package and with your income.... please remember that income is income, no matter how much or how little.... it is better than Zero, my angel.
