I recently lost my job. A job that I loved and was good at. Now because of an untruth that one person reported I can't get anyone to give me a second look for a preschool teaching job. So I'm looking outside the teaching profession, but so far no luck. I can't even get hired at the local party store, because I'm over qualified. I'm trying hard to maintain my "everything's going to be ok" attitude for my kids, but that's beginning to fail. I feel like I'm letting my family down. My husband has been the only breadwinner in our family for the last month, and the stress of that burden is getting to him. If my ex-husband would only be consistent w/his court ordered child support payments, some of the stress might be eliminated, but that's doesn't seem to be happening. All I want to do is to stay in bed and cry. My boys are in high school, and I know that they understand, but I don't want them to have too. My friends and family just keep telling me that something better will come along. I'm beginning to feel like no one can relate to what I'm actually feeling. I don't know what to do.
