      How are you coping iwththese difficult time?I am like many women I know who are the primary bread winner.I heard on TV the other day that more men are losing their jobs than women.As for us,I am a nurse and my husband a self employed painter and not much work for him these days.It has put a lot of stress on us both as he is with me all the time.How are you all dealing with the stress..

        • Haha.. we lost our house to a fire. 100%. Living in a rental house with EVERYTHING rented! I had to quit my job to deal with all the problems we are going through. My husband works for the movie industry and broke his back (but the industry is dead anyhow). My daughter is a Senior in High School and having a horrible year...StReSs? What’s the next word on the scale, because I passed stress months ago?

        • Hey Sunshine and Dalemarie!  My husband lost his job (on Christmas Eve - nice, huh?)  He hasn’t been able to find a job since its so horrible all over! We never used to argue about anything and now money has become a major issue.

          You have to remember to take care of yourself so you can continue to take care of everything else!! I find that if take half an hour to an hour to work out it releives alot of the stress and I’m not so bitchy.  I also take my motorcycle out for a long ride helps.  It doesn’t completely make the stress go away but it sure helps!
