I am 45. 6 kids. 2 at home. I have an Associates Degree.   My husband screwed me over so bad financially. I just lost my house , car and all of my posessions. I am literally starting with nothing and have to build a life for myself.  I have a back injury, I’m sort of disabled. I stayed home with my kids. I want to work soooo bad. I have a large family w/ no support. I just moved in with my mother. I have no guidance at all. I feel like I am 12.  I can not manage my own life. I have no idea which steps to take as far as disability v. staying on pain meds and working,  fighting for $ from my ex. My identity is gone. I’ve had children since I was 18 and now I HAVE to find out who I am, what my talents and assets are. I need help! I’m not ugly but I also do not want to be needy and grab on to just any man!!!! I want a house, a job, independance before I meet any one.  I do not want to be alone forever. But I will attract needy men if I am needy. If anyone has been thru this and can help, I am willing to listen I have a very open mind.  I feel very alone.frown

    • Dear Jolynch6,
      You are not alone, many of us have been where you are but every woman’s situation is different. In your position the one blessing is you have a place to live I know we as women don’t like that idea but let it give you peace of mind for now. I would look for employment doing anything credible until you find what you really like.  

      You are a woman, a strong woman. Look at you with a new attitude there is something you know how to do that will make money for you. Housewives have more skills than they realize.

    • As 47 said, you are blessed to have a place to live.  Fighting the ex for $ always costs more than it is worth.
      Just take a deep breath and take things one step at a time.  If you want a job, go find one.  It may not be something you like to start with, but you’ve got to start somewhere.  You can do this.  Gradually things will fall into place for you.

    • How are you doing now.. This post looks like it’s from a while ago. I’m sorry you are or were going through all this.  

       The only thing I can say that’s worked for me and most of my clients and friends is FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT.  Do your very best to stop focusing on your losses and what you do not have.  This is not easy..but whatever you focus on is what you get...start focusing on what you do want and you’ll get more of that.  I say this because I’ve been there before and it’s what worked for me and so many others. If you need me to share more...let me know.
