Been anxious

I've been kind of anxious the last few days. There's been a lot on mind. If it's not one thing, it's another. Things are just pilling up, and I'm getting tired of it. It's getting a lot. I wish it would just slow down, at very least.

A lot of it has to do with money. We owe quite a bit. We're just trying to pay our bills and it just doesn't seem like we're making much of a difference. At least, I'm working now, which will help. But I'm still worried that it may not always be enough. It's getting frustrating.

My husband has been out of work since the beginning of January, and I know he's getting discouraged, when it comes to looking for work. The last contract that just ended was only for about a month or two. I know he's getting depressed over the situation and I don't blame him. We're both just really worried.

I know that we're not the only ones in this situation, and I do feel sorry for those who are. It's not an easy situation.

Thanks everyone for reading. I needed to talk about it and just share.

Anxiety can be hard to deal with because often there isn't a specific thing you can say "If I just do this, I won't need to worry", it just leaves you feeling worried about everything! Hope things improve soon.

Anxiety is definitely hard to live with. There's nothing you can really say. You can't just snap out of it. It's hard. I hope things change soon too. Thanks for your comment.

I live on the edge every day and night. Actually I can relate to your husband being out of work and your anxiety about making it through a rough patch in life. I will pray for you both. I will also say, Hang in there. Things will get better once this economy does a 180. America's economy effects world economy and no matter where you live, jobs are few and far between.

I am also anxious! I am kind of retired, so I don't earn any money, even though there was a time when I was working and I did. My husband is what they call "My carer" so the money we get goes to him, not me, which I don't think is fair.

Thanks. I appreciate your kind words. It's nice to know that other people can relate. We definitely try to hang in there and stay positive. Hopefully things will change soon.

It's always nice to talk to someone else who goes through similar things. I'm sorry that all your money goes to your husband. You should be able to keep some of it, in my opinion.

Centrelink is a bit delayed sending/giving the money, so I have to be glad my husband is buying some of the crafts I embroider, as he is very understanding!

It's nice that he has done that for you. Hopefully you get your payment soon.

Don't give up, never give up, Colibry21 ! We also had a very bad 2017, from the very beginning. And I know a lot about anxiety, believe me. But remember there is always a solution, although it might seem difficult, there is always one. About work, it's the same here, in Spain, it's really terrible. I can't tell you a lot about earning online, but, in my case, something that really helps us with our "economy", at home, is that I teach Spanish online. In case you know about something you can teach, there are quite a lot of sites where you can create an account and start teaching. It takes some time, but it could work. A few are Italki.com or VerbalPlanet.com (for languages) and other, with more options, like Tutors.com. (just google it, it could help... I hope) And if you need to talk, just contact me! Best!!

Thanks. It's nice to hear that it's not just me. I'm definitely trying not to give up. It's what we're doing. We are trying our best, and things are hopefully going to pick up. Thanks for sharing those links. I will look into them.
