Thank you for the thread and for your thoughts and empathy towards others going through hardship and stress despite going through a tremendous amount yourself. I admire that, as I know for myself I sometimes get so caught up in my own stresses I don't even feel I have the 'energy' mentally to think about the stresses others are going through.
I've just had the most difficult 2 years in my life. In this past year my husband decided he wanted a divorce, his family cut me off immediately and I did not see or hear from them again, I still had to spend a year in the same house with him as an upstairs/downstairs "roommate" situation because I had no where else to go and neither of us could afford the house alone at the time, I started working two jobs and 12+ hour days. I got a puppy (before I knew I'd be moving), my puppy got malignant cancer at the age of 6 months. I took on a mortgage on my own so I could keep my babies and move closer to my family, leaving everything I have known for the past 11 years and going to an area I have never been in with a higher cost of living (my mom and stepdad moved to this area originally after I moved to MN so this is not the area I grew up in).
There are a lot of good things too, but it's just been so much. Now I feel so tired. So incredibly tired right now it's hard to function, hard to think. I know it will smooth out though, and God has done a lot for me, and I have been blessed with friendships I treasure deeply.
