My partner has no health insurance, and they keep cutting hours at his supposedly full time job. I have health insurance because my mom would lose hers if she took me off it.
I am going back to nursing school full time to get a job that was supposed to be stable and in demand, but no one is hiring anymore.
We want to get married, but we keep trying and failing to get on our financial feet. I’m not sure that will ever happen.
I am afraid of my sick father-in-law dying. His family would have nowhere to go but us or the streets, but how could we support his disabled mom, disabled brother, and kid sister when we can barely make ends meet in our one room studio apartment?
Recently, someone told me they got a 20,000 dollar raise. I laughed because it would be too painful to cry. Most of my friends are unemployed. The most my partner and I have ever made combined was 24,000 USD. That was a great year.
