Everythng I try is not good enough, My home is in impending foreclosure, my budget is a hopeless disaster,  I love my husband but we can't communicate well, I go looking for work but can't find it. I worry that my daughter is suffering from all of this too.I have clinical depression, and  been in counselling several times but can't afford the co-pay or my medication right now. Oh, and I live 300 miles from my family and found out my father is probably dying.
I feel like I  am complaining a lot but it is ALL true. My religious beleifs won't let me hurt myself, but I have never felt so helpless, or so afraid  of the future.
 
Does anybody know how I can get help?

Hi Drama Mama,

The best thing that I can advise is to take your life one day at a time. One moment if you need to. This relieves a lot of stress. And remember you aren't in this alone, your husband can share the burden. Looking for another job is a good idea. I wish you luck with that. Right now people are hiring extra people for the Christmas rush. This might be a good time to be applying for work. Maybe at a retail store or something. If that is the type of work that you do.

I wish for you the best. It is truly hard around the holidays. Never give up hope. But most importantly, ONE DAY AT A TIME. Focus on one thing at a time. Maybe some meditation is in order. Or relaxation techniques. Breathe...

Keep posting hon.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Drama Mama, I am so sorry to hear of what you are going through. I too have lost my job.

I know it is hard and now with you knowing about your father's health, must be adding on to your depression more.

Why don't you talk to your daughter and see how much she is suffering. Let her feel that you know how hard it is. Sometimes, I find, no matter what the situation is it is best to talk to the children and make them feel strong.

And for your situation, is there any kind of social group to help you find a way to pay for your medical bills. After all, you need it.

And last of all, big hug to you..... and hope you will get through this soon.

I know a job loss can be really hard, and with this bad times economically, it is even more depressing.

Hugs...

UPDATE

Thanks for your responses.

My Dad is doing very well with chemo.

As for work...I am about to take a major leap of faith....I paint (which is also wonderous therapy) and I hope to try and start selling very soon.

My daughter is amazing and resilient, and she's also wise beyond her years. She's doing well.

My husband has been getting OVERTIME, which helps.

Two days before the foreclosure sale date we got a posponement, the lender is taking the time to look at helping us----which translates to time to find some other way out.
meanwhile ...we got a nice sum of money we were not expecting. Things appear more stable.
Life is hard, but I beleive in God, and He is GOOD.


Thanks.

I am so happy to read that life has turned around for you. Having faith in that helps us true. Things do get hard, but they do get better as long as we keep trying. I am very happy for you.
