Today was REALLY hard. All I did was cry. I went into work, then they sent me home after 2 hours because we were slow. Half of me was happy because I was ready to bust into tears again so it was best that I leave, but the other half of me was disappointed because i need the money. I’ve been apartment searching but keep getting turned away because I’m not making enough. Most place require a person to make 3x’s the rent and as a cook at a restaurant, that’s not going to happen. I’m struggling to make ends meet and am very disappointed in myself for everything that I lost. I just need help. Financially and mentally. Is there anyone out there whose been through this (with children, may I add), & gotten through it? I need to know there’s hope. I’ve been on my own since I was 21. I never hit rock bottom like i have now. I can’t believe I waited until 30 to fail. *sigh* I’ve been wearing myself out with job hunting and worrying myself crazy about money and a stable place to live.
