I am just so stressed out & need to vent. I decided to leave my job cause they were just causing me alot of headaches (I was an admin asst for a property manager). Yesterday, my husband tells me that his friend got a letter from where I work saying that his application was denied for something. I was so mad cause I had been told that I could allow certain things on people's applications and while I was out sick for a couple of weeks they undermined me & made me look like an idiot. How great is that after I busted my behind for that place!! Today, it's just getting worse. Our friend got side swiped while driving. She's OK I guess but it's not what I wanted to hear. On top of it all, my older brother is disabled right now. He was working for a friend doing some construction work and ends up breaking his leg. The guy won't help my brother at all and the medical expenses are out of this world already. I had to go buy groceries for my brother & his family today and will have to go pick up his medication later on. He has no medical insurance so I will be paying full price for his meds. Thing is that he & I have always been the ones to take care of things in the family since we lost our father in 1980. I was only 11 but I took on alot of responsibilities since my mom needed to work 2 jobs to support the family. I continue to take on alot from my family as well as my husband's. It's been so stressful! I can't back down now cause I'm the only one that they can depend on. Thanks for listening.

Wow. Take a few deep breaths. Ok...can I vent too? It feels so much better to vent. Well, my husband and I are having issues. He hides things from me even though he knows it hurts me. Me and our one daughter and infant son have been sick. two weeks ago the kid i babysit came with pink eye and now i think my daughter has it. which means we'll all probably have it. then my other daughter had to come home from preschool because her ear hurt. so now i have to pay my sister to come down and watch the baby so i can go to the doctor and spend $40 we don't have on copays to see if one has an ear infection and if the other has pink eye. And to top it off my mother insults me by telling me its my bad housekeeping that caused it all. (and it isn't that bad). ok i feel a little better now. i hope things get better for you.

Pink eye isn't caused by bad housekeeping. If it was, we'd all have it by now. Hope things turn around for you too!! Yes, it's terrific to vent!!
