I'm having such a horrible, horrible day today. It's raining, so I'm hurting physically. I'm also hurting emotionally right now. Got the news that my son lost his job. He has a baby almost a year old. I know that I will have to support him financially until he finds some work. I'm retired and live off investments I inherited. Well, with stocks in the toilet right now, I'm afraid I won't have enough to support him and myself. I also have a daughter who lives with me (I'm paying the mortgage, light bill, water bill, insurance, etc.). My husband of 34 years died 10 years ago and I'm crying about that today too. Sorry to be so negative...I'm a Christian and should have a better outlook! I'm ashamed that I'm feeling sorry for myself. I just ask that those of you who are Christians please pray for me today, ok?


  • Thanks for your kind words, but I feel like a failure. Too involved to get into all of it, but I do apppreciate your response.
  • :) Joy, i am sorry you are so down today and even though it feels terrible this to shall pass. #:S i am sure you have been a loving mother, grandmother and wife. those are alot of hats to wear at your age. i am sorry you are missing your husband. i have been married for 28 years now and am still madly in love. can't imagine life without him. so you have good reason to be on the sad side today. more is in store for all of us with the fall of our money and housing system. i know the fear you are feeling about not being able to even get by. :''( it is scary!!!. please let us give you what comfort we can and we want to hear from you. shed a few tears, hug yourself tight and start a new day!! >:D< Jenny :)

  • I really appreciate hearing from you guys. Everyone is so kind and caring. I hate it when these days come when I just want to have a pity party all by myself. I don't want to talk to anyone, go anywhere, etc. But it's great to be able to get these feelings out by writing and knowing that people are out there who care. Most of the time my kids don't seem to care whether I'm hurting or not...or at least that's the way it seems to me. I'm usually not like this...I'm actually a pretty content person most of the time. Again, thanks for being here.

  • So sorry you have to deal with that when you need to be focusing on your own recovery!

    It is hard to know that your children - regardless of age - need help and not provide it; it is also hard to know how much help is too much - for both your good and theirs! When faced with a similar situation a friend reminded us that it is important to not jeopardize your own care and future - your kids have many more years to save for their retirement! Hard decision.

    I hope tomorrow is a better day for you!
