I have never came to a board to seek this type of support but I don't know what to do. I have no one to guide me so I am reaching out to you all. My husband and I of 5 years have one son that is 2 years old. About a year and a half ago we went from living in a row house paying $300 a month mortgage to a single colonial in a upper-middle class neighborhood to be closer to family and are now paying $1800 in mortgage alone! This seemed like the ideal idea at the time but I most certainly regrete it now. We barely scrap bottom and we both suffer from depression (me being much worse). So us not being happy has really taken a toll on us as a family. I am having a hard time admitting to my husband that I was wrong for insisting on buying this house when my husband insisted that we couldn't afford it. Now we are living a nightmare. We want to move out to Vegas but can't do it now because well lets just say I just found out I am pregnant! What timing right! So now I have to wait till February to have the baby then move to Vegas. Plus we have to put our house up for sale. Houses have doubled in price in my area since we bought it so we should have some good equity in the house.
Anyway, I am so depressed. As you can tell it's late at night and I can't sleep at all cause I am so scared! I want to cry and scream but I have no one to lean on. This has to be the stupidest choice I have ever made in life. Really I am scared that I am taking us down a bad road. We also have nearly $30,000 in credit card debt. I've become depressed and suicidal about this and I don't know how to stop it.
Sorry for the long story but I just don't know what to do I'm scared.
