Years ago my husband made a couple of job choices which turned out to be not-so-wise. He left one job to create his own business; realized after a few years that he didn't have what it takes to run his own business; got another job and worked for a couple of years before he was terminated; and now works making less than he did before he started his own business. While we tried to live within our means at each venture, not much was saved, and a period of unemployment drained our little bank account. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but don't have any real cushion. I'm too close to retirement to try to get a better-paying job now (and would probably have to start a new job at a lower salary than what I'm getting anyway). I just hope we can hold out a few more years until we can retire (and hope social security and pensions are intact).

Working full-time and going to school with lots of homework, leaves no down time.

Working long hours with a tedious commute that culminates in not being able to pay the basic bills required to exist in this world at the end of the month, is indeed, extremely stressful and dauntingly despressive.

Nancy, it looks like it may be time for either a new job or a life adjustment. I went through that too but then got a new job and moved across the country. Good jobs are hard to come by. Try Monster. Sticking to a bad situation isn't worth eroding your stomach and esophagus linings.
