I noticed how stressed and sad you were from a post you made on another thread. I am so saddened to know that you feel this way right now. Sometimes we all need a good cry (and a large windfall of cash), but the money can't be helped right now.
What I can offer is a shoulder to cry on. I had my good cry tonight (when I honestly thought my husband and I were giving up the fight). Chronic Pain has taken its toll on our marriage in so many ways. We pretend most of the time that things are great, but sometimes it is just too difficult for me to do everything expected when I can't stand to get up from the recliner to even move.
Like you, I feel overwhelmed, under-appreciated, in pain, confused, and generally like life is not worth the battle....BUT IT IS. My daughter (who inadvertantly began the lovely argument wih her pre-teen mouth) must have told me a thousand times tonight how much she loves me and how much she appreciates me. My husband, so often selfish about doing things that he feel are not his responsibility, actually washed the dishes and cooked the supper. It was just bacon and some type of sandwich (so I guess that's not much cooking), but the gesture made me feel better.
I'm not telling you my story to minimize your hurt/frustration/money issues/family concerns, but to tell you that you are not alone and that you are needed and loved....even when you feel useless and unwanted.
I wish I could give you something that would help your situation, but we are unfortunately in a similar situation. Money is insane everywhere.
You are a great person and a pleasure to talk to here on the board. Please know that you are loved.
