Just need to vent a bit!!!! I'm feeling blue not sure if I posted this before but my hubby just lost his job due to economic cut-bucks but not only did we lose the job but with this job he had a work vehicle, a cell phone, and a desktop so all those things are gone, BIG BLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but the worst part was the awesome insurance he had that paid for over 80% of my surgeries, appt. and meds. this will all end at the end of the month so I have no idea where to go to get help with getting my meds Money is tight and we were use to living pretty well so on the kids it's confusing, due to only having 1 vehicle now I can't even get out to drive just to the local Walgreens which was my big outing!!!!! And my hubby's way of dealing with this is to stay away and get his mind off it by going to friends homes or to the lake to swim which I can't so I feel very lonely, he's use to being so busy that staying home makes him crazy!!!!! Last night I tossed and turned until 5:00am and slept until 3:00 this afternoon so I know it's depression~ well thanx for listening it helps to know alot of you can relate to some of my issues!!! :(

  • i am so sorry to hear of your economic downturn. from losing a job to losing insurance. it must be very frightening. i would suggest you try to get on state-aid to help with medical bills. surely there will be some unemployment to help put alittle cash into your home. this does not help you from feeling alone through this desperate situation. i wish i could just turn him around into your arms. stop him in his tracks and have him stay. whisper to you that he is afraid just as you are!!!! keep your spirits up however you can. i will be sending lots of positive energy your way. Best of luck! Jenny :)

  • It makes me feel so much better so to others understand I appreciate the good wishes~

  • I'm so sorry that your husband lost his job and all that went with it, including the medical insurance. Hopefully, he will find another job soon, one that he likes that includes good benefits. I'm sure he is dealing with all of the stress in his own way, but it's a shame you are going in such different directions right now. Unfortunately, some men seem to be from another planet than women when it comes to dealing with problems. I do hope you are able to talk to each other soon and can support each other through this tough time. I'm also hoping that things will improve very soon for your family.

    My best to you,
