being with my husband is making me depressed because of constantly putting us in debt.,and his vices. I have 3 children. No real education or job experience. I want to be independent and stand on my own, but how? Even if I got a job(basically minimum wage, I could never afford child care) My youngest is 6months-six yrs. till he's in 1st grade.
We live in a great neighborhood, excellent schools....leaving would put us at best in a one bedroom shack in a bad part of town...how would that ever be better?? I wish I could figure out a way to make money from home.....been looking and looking.: (

DISCUSS THIS ISSUE WITH YOUR HUSBAND, TRY USING YOUR SKILLS SUCH AS BAKING IF YOU KNOW HOW TO DO THAT. OPEN UP A CHILDCARE CENTER, NOW IF THAT DONT HIT THE SPOT ND ITS AN EMOTIONAL THING THEN THERAPY SHOULD HELP I HOPE AND IF THAT DONT WORK, WELL ITS OFF TO THE WILD BLUE YONDER.. TO HELL WITH THE FANCY HOME AND CARS, YOUR FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE AND YOUR CHILDRENS WELL BEING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT THAT, IF YOU GET MY DRIFT..

How about discussing this with your husband and telling him how unhappy you are and that if things don't change, you will do the changing? Go to therapy. Do what you need to. I mean if you don't love him any more, that is different.

Get on line and check out college courses and figure out what you want to do. Get into school. Improve yourself so you can have the lifestyle that you want, independent from your husband if need be.
