A Prisoner to Money

September 10th, 2015 at 05:51 pm

I am really unhappy at my job. I don't trust the people I work with. And was told there is no money coming my way for a while. Unfortunately, I don't think I can go anywhere. I don't think another place will let me come in at 9:00 so I can continue to work at my second job. And I need both incomes. Plus I don't think that I will find someplace paying me what I make now. I have my feelers out but hope is dim.

And in other news...my EXDH lost his job this week. I am no longer dependent on him for child support, but he is supposed to pay 1/3 of DD's rent at college and the kids health insurance was through his work. So I have until the 15th to come up with $220 to get the kids covered on an Obamacare plan...not a great plan but at least it is insurance. And I have to come up with 2/3 of the rent for DD on Oct 1.

AND...my sister who was paying the other 1/3 of DD's rent isn't going to be able to pay anything on Oct 1 either. She was finally approved for her disability and her insurance stopped her payments that she had been getting. Problem is that she won't get her first disability payment for 45-60 days. So her rent this month needs to be covered and I don't know how she will come up with rent on Oct 1.

So when it rains it pours. I don't know how I am going to come up with DD's rent. I know some of you will say she should help...she has a job but they have severely cut her hours. She is looking for something else right now but hasn't found anything yet.

I am sure everything will work out. I just wish I knew how.

    I'm so sorry. That is a tough bunch of things hitting you. Wish you could find another job that would make you happier. No fun going to work and feeling under appreciated or distrusting.

    No advice but hugs, and hang in there. I would keep looking for a better job, in the meantime appreciating what you can out of the current job- if nothing else, it is paycheck. Good luck figuring out DDs rent, it sucks when you count on others to do their part and it falls through Frown

    I hope things improve soon. I can relate as far as the job. I keep my feelers out as well. You never know what may come your way!

    Someone once told me that if you don't love what you do, they love why you do it. Stay focused on what the money you earn is doing, for you and for your family.

    I am sorry your ex and your sister are not coming through for you. In the long term, can DD get a cheaper place to live? It sounds to me like you're going to have to rely on yourself. That's a hard lesson I learned myself, not to depend on other people. Sad, but true.

    N.GA Girl... maybe you can ask your Ex to deliver pizzas as a quick job to help you, for now. *thinking of the Dave Ramsey words right now.
    I'm sorry this is all hitting at once...
