I don't need the stress.

I lost my job of 7 yrs 6 months ago. I've been applying for jobs & have only had 1 interview in that entire time. Now I realize my dh's has alot on his shoulders, but he comes home for work & starts yelling & screaming at me. (my sister is disabled & isn't getting any money but she gets food stamps) I'm limited to what kind of job I can take because of medical issues~~but he thinks I should just ignore those & just take any kind of job (but the unemployment office is telling me no I don't have to & I'm not suppose to take any job under $18 a hour) see the problem?

Over the last year or so I've delevoped high blood pressure, he's not helping with all of this nonsense. I had it checked today at a free clinic & it's high still {but not as high as it was}~~and as my mom died of a stroke at age 58 & I'm going to be 53 in 2 weeks. It almost feels like he's trying to push me into one. Not sure what I can do~~I've told him repeatedly that he is only stressing me out & I can tell when my bp is rising. Asked him tonight, what would you do if you keep stressing me out & I end up having a stroke? He just looked at me & walked away.

I didn't know you'd lost your job. So sorry to hear that. I hope something comes along for you soon. It would be nigh impossible to get a job around here for $18/hr. <<< I don't know what to say about your DH. He sounds like trouble often enough. I hope he lays off you soon....
