Sorry in advance if I am whining. We have been having a really hard time lately. DH is really making money at work & this has been on for about 3 months. He is totally stressed & depressed. Our relationship is VERY strained. We have reached the end of our ropes. So to make things just that much better this morning I had a seizure while driving DD to the bus stop. I am humiliated & so, so worried about DD. She was scared. The wreck wasn't bad on the car. I was idiling around a corner I thought but

I'm so sorry you are having a tough time right now. Hopefully you and DH can work things out, I know when money is tight it makes everything else seem worse. Is counseling and option? I'm really glad you and DD are OK.

No I am almost positive that counseling is not an option. He works 6 days a week. He just hasn't been getting the customers he needs. (he's a car salesman...see?) Then last week I had the seizure & now my car is gone to the Service Department. The newest bit is bill juggling. It will get better someday. It just has to.

Ugh... DH was in car sales for a while and it was rough. I hated that he could be there 10 hours a day and still not be making anything, long hours, spotty pay... probably our worst time of our marriage. Hopefully things turn around soon and he can get some sales.

Wow your DH really was in car sales! You have described our life lately. He is one of the best there. He sold 2 last week so we are being carefully optimistic!
