I am a single mother of three children. I put myself through school and have an engineering degree. I have had a steady good paying job for the last five plus years. I made enough money to support myself and my kids. I do not get any support from the father. He is not involved with the children. I have a house and a reliable car. A couple months ago I made the decision to quit my job because of some issues that were going on. There is no amount of money that could make me sacrifice my morals. I live in an area where I have no family and few friends. I have not yet found another job. I feel, I KNOW, i have excellent credentials, but I just haven't found anything else yet. This is beginning to take a toll on my emotions. I have always prided myself with being able to hold my own. I have these three kids and I handle it all myself. My day used to start at 5am and end at 11pm when I would collapse from exhaustion, but I was doing my thing and proud of it. My bank account is now down to nothing and I have defaulted on my bills. Although I do not regret quitting my job, I am starting to feel bad about myself. I cannot try to get help from anybody. I feel my children are my responsibility and I am a grown woman. I do know that if you set your dreams you will achieve them. I will get past this. I want to know if anybody else has been in a rut like this - I could use a few good reminders so I can keep my head during this climb.
