constant state of stress

June 30th, 2008 at 08:31 pm

I can feel the stress all over my body. Out of money, bills to pay, what bills to pay first, what is the most important right now? My dog needs to go to the vet. I can't seem to get rid of worrying about money money money. Food is an easy way to spend alot of money. There are only two of us, but needing to keep nutritious food at home is important. When it was just me, I could live on a tortilla with butter, in the oven. Or just cheap food. But with a young son that is growing and needs 5 fruits and veggies a's getting way to expensive to live. is it just me that lives paycheck to paycheck?

This is a sad situation.
