Good luck with the job - hope things start to settle down a bit for you. I hope your new employer is understanding on your behalf and maybe the stress will be much less for you now that you have a job.
(It is absolutely none of my business but if part of your financial problems are related to not keeping or sticking to a budget you might want to think about
working on that. It is soooooooooooooo difficult in this day and age to try to make ends meet on one income and two incomes are needed without a doubt. I just mentioned this as I have personal experience with some family members who are just horrible with money and part of their problems would be much less worse if they stuck to a budget.
Many many years ago when we met with a financial planner to develop a retirement savings plan one of the exercises was to not only enter all the fixed expenses but also keeping a diary of what each of us spent on a daily basis. It is amazing the things we do sometimes out of habit and don't realize the drain it has on the income. Of course I am not trying to say not to enjoy life either. Just a little balance sometimes can help make a difference. This is just an opinion and some advice..... and no response is required.)
For instance....This is evident with Starbucks closing so many of their places as people are finding some of those little luxuries they enjoyed each day needed to go by the wayside due to the price of gas and the cost of living hurting so many people.
