Help Me.... I'm Poor!


So, in case you didn't know, I am actually currently out of work.

I left my job because of an inoperably stressful situation.

So that means I have no paycheck.

Since I didn't get fired, I don't get worker's comp.

So my only option is to delve into my savings until I can figure out what in the world I am going to do with myself.

I used to be married, living in ______ with my husband and my three dogs, and working at a big poshy financial firm, in a big complicated service area.

But, now I am divorced, living in DC, with my parents and son and two dog, working nowhere.

My, how the mighty have fallen.

I get a little spousal and child support each month, but lately HE (who shall not be named) hasn't been paying on a regular basis. So, basically I've been getting just enough to get by...

I guess my shopping habit doesn't help.

I really want to stop shopping, but it feels so GOOD!

I am totally embarrassed when my packages come to the door because my mother looks at me like "I thought you were broke?" and I have to go into some long-winded unnecessary diatribe about how this and that, and this and that, and I am planning to take it all back..

Yeah RIGHT!!!

Well, I still have most of my clothes in my house in ______.

When we divorced, my ex gave me the house. I thought I was lucky, until I realized I had to pay the mortgage on it, and would be stuck with trying to sell it for an amount to cover what I owe.

So, basically, getting it all in the divorce is not always all it is cracked up to be.

So now, I stay in my childhood room, with two clothing racks and a closet full of clothes. Wondering what kind of career I want to go into next....(Definitely not financial services - ugh!).

I've thought about perhaps opening a thrift/consignment store for plus sizes (Full-figured..whatever!), but that requires money and a responsible attitude. Both of which I have none...

So for now, I am stuck here, broke, yet fashionably dressed, wondering what my next move will be.
