    So sorry to vent....I just have to . Both hubby and I have been off of work for over 7 months . We do have money in savings...but don't really want to touch it because we don't know when we'll be back to work . Hubby has been fighting work comp for over a year now . He slipped and fell on his wrist last Feb. , they did 2 shots , then last Oct. he finally went in to get it fixed . Work comp closed the claim without his knowledege...we got a lawyer...they offered $30,000 . The lawyer is going to take $6,000 and the surgery and rehab will cost over $17,000 . We were going to take the money , and file a second claim but work comp lumped in all of the contractors over the last year ( we're UNION ) so that we can't do a second claim for paying for his wage . He had his surgery 2 weeks ago and the doctor told me it was alot worse than he expected . Now I'm concerened that our insurance company will make us pay the surgery bill if we take the $30,000 . Not to mention my shoulder is acting up again ( tore the rotator 4 yrs ago ) and am afraid that I'll end up encurring more bills . Mine's been going on for a week and getting worse . I can't even fork out the hay for my horses . My best friend moved in 3 weeks ago....and she just told me she might be pregnant ! Her mom is moving out of state ( no work here ) and her boyfreind is a "rodeo" cowboy . Not to mention we need to refinance the house in 6 months.....what bank is going to carry us when we haven't been working for so long ?!! Please tell me things will get better....I know hubby's parents will finance us for another year....but what if I have to have surgery also ? So sorry to come off whiny......I just can't portray it to hubby right now .[​IMG]

    The trials and tribulations of life are sometimes so very difficult to bear, I wish I could offer you advice, but I will keep you in my prayers, and I do hope that things get better for you sooner rather than later, and I pray that your health and your Dh improves.... [​IMG] to you.....

    Oh I'm sorry you and your hubby are going through this! Sometimes it helps to share the things that are troubling us, so don't feel bad about venting! You and your family are in my prayers, I hope things get better soon.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am so sorry to hear about your difficult situation. You really needed to vent, [​IMG] .
    Things always happen for a reason (it's easier saying that, than believing that) but it's true.

    Things will take a turn, everything is a test- you have made it together this far, something GOOD needs to happen, you deserve that![​IMG]
    good luck. [​IMG]

    Ohhh.....I'm not trying to complain too bad . At least I have someone who loves me dearly , we have some money in the bank , and have family who will help out as much as they can . I'm just tired of feeling like there might be a ray of sunshine coming up , only to find out more clouds are coming ! I feel VERY gratefull that we still have a roof over our heads , can afford food , car payments , etc , when so many others are worse off than us . Just needed to vent...hoping things will turn out better , and we won't have to be the ones asking for help . Been there , done that .

    Thanks to eveyone ![​IMG]

    You are pretty amazing really.

    I know all of this stuff has been going on in your life for such a long time now, but you have always remained positive and strong.

    Thoughts and wishes are with you that there is not just a ray of hope on the horizon soon, but a whole rainbow.

    Just get your self and your husband well and healthy again, and remember the stress you are taking all on your own shoulders will make this harder. Be kind to yourself when you can and I am sure it will come right in the end.

    All best wishes.
