Joe and I have money problems. Kinda like the majority of Americans,right?!? Well,ours is because I dont work. When we bought our house,I was working....pulling in OT hours,etc. I havent worked outside the home since 2002...I enjoyed working...it wasnt my choice to NOT work. I am NOT a lazy person...my health problems have over taken me.

Well last night we were talking about how to get our bills on track and what we need to do to get our credit in order to attempt to purchase a ranch style house in about 5 yrs. Well....during this time Joe must have mentioned five times about ME not working and ME being sick.

This is depressing! I fee like I am the root cause of all of our finacial problems. How can I feel like an equal in our partnership/marriage when I feel that I caused our money problems. Because of ME and MY medical bills we filed bankruptcy in 2004. Because of ME and MY medical problems we will never have as much as we want. It's just not right...why is this all my fault? Like being ill isnt bad enough already!

I'm so sorry you are feeling guilty about your family financial struggles. It's not your fault. You did not ask for your illnesses. It's not like you woke up one morning and said you would rather be sick and not work than be healthy and work. I totally understand where you are coming from though. It's hard not to feel guilty. You shouldn't though.

Do you have a degree?

One way to better your finances is to try and work from home. There are a lot of career opportunities available. Do you like writing? You should check out the WAHM board on here. They have lots of great resources.

Everything will be okay. I promise!

No,I dont have a degree. In highschool I was in the OWE program. Ya know...us students that knew we didnt want to go to college and we had to work and got to only be in school a couple of hours a day. Thats what I did my senior year and to be honest,if I wasnt involved in the program,I probaly would have dropped out of school. I went to school until 11am and then off to work the rest of my day. I loved it! loved working!!

I have checked out several work at home things...but alot of it looks fraudulant. Things I have seen have been pay them money for me to make money. I cant do that!! LOL...
I will definetly check more into that board here...I have lurked a little,but only once or twice. Thanks for the ideas!!
