I’m feeling really depressed at the moment and kind of heading to alcohol. My current job is temporary and it finishes next month, they won’t renew my contract because of financial reasons but I don’t really want to be there now. In 6 weeks I’ll be without a job which puts me and my family in a financial mess.
I’ve worked part time while my wife works full time on 50+ hours a week (which although it’s a really good job, we hardly ever see her - our kids have seen her for 30 minutes today and it’s currently 10:30pm so they’re all in bed, and it’ll be the same again tomorrow) as it worked very well with childcare but my wife moaned that we were tight for money which makes me want to get a full time job.
I’ve applied for in excess of 60 jobs this week but heard nothing back which puts a real dampener on it, but by getting a full time job it means that I won’t get to see much of the kids as they’ll be with family or at school.
