I saw my psychologist yesterday. I'm showing all the signs of depression again. Can't sleep, can't concentrate, icky stomach etc.... My husband and I just received some very bad news concerning our finances. It has hit me very hard. I can't see a psychiatrist until aug 31, as my old one left the clinic, and the new one isn't there yet.
 
I am going with my husband on a work trip a couple of states away, on thursday. We do get a couple of days to do what we want while we are there. I'm hoping this time away will help me.
 
Anyone have ideas on how to just "let go" of this news about our money situation? I'm thinking about it all the time.
 
Thanks.

Hi there sweetie,
 
I guess the best advice I can give is to stay in the moment of what you are doing.  It is going to be hard to get this out of your mind, but practice makes perfect.  So practice staying in the now. 
 
I know that financial problems overwhelm us.  It is hard to get them out of our minds.  I have been there.  But I have learned to take each day as it comes. 
 
I like Siobhan's advice about doing things with your husband.  Get into eachother and try not to worry.
 
Know that I am thinking of you and praying for you.
 
Hugs, Karen

Thanks for your advice, ladies. We will be staying, for most of the trip, with friends who live out in the country/woods. It will be very relaxing to have coffee out on the patio and talk about other things besides money. This trip won't be costing us much at all, as we have $100 gas gift card.

Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.

We just found out from an attorney and it seems our only option is bankruptcy. So.....that is what we are going to do. This has been 2yrs coming, and I'm actually relieved that it's all going to be ending soon. My husband had a crooked ex business partner - he is the reason all this happened to us. He fled the country with all the money - we got the bills. Crazy world.

I am sorry that you have to file bankruptcy, but sometimes that is the best way to go.  It will take time to get your credit back and your rating back up, but that actually goes by fast. 
 
I couldn't file bankruptcy because I owned my home and they would have taken it, but I was in a financial bind a few years back.  I settled some of my accounts and the others didn't get paid, they have finally left me alone.  Every now and then I get a call about a credit card machine that I had, but I think that they have given up.  One credit card I did go to court over to settle, but they didn't show up so they dropped it.  So if it seems like the end of the world, it isn't.  You guys will get back on your feet.  It just takes a little time.
 
Best wishes to you.
 
Hugs, Karen

yes....we are going to lose our home back in Wisconsin. We will have to stay in Michigan now. Hubby gets housing with his job. This is a rather sad day, but I am glad to finally see some closure. Thanks for your words, Karen.
