- Wedding: August 2012
I am 100% overwhelmed. I’m so overwhelmed I don’t even know where to begin, so forgive me if this is totally incoherent.
To give some background: I’ve been in my career for almost 5 years. It’s not my dream, but I make very good money and have been able to support myself. I own my own car and home. I have a masters degree and several certifications. My car and education are paid off.
FI is still in his undergrad. (This never bothered me. He worked for several years, and decided on a career change) He is at a community college getting his associates….which he’s been working on for FOUR years….and he has another year to go. Well, he failed last semester. He took a summer course to make up for the grade, and failed it again. He has no idea if he’s going to lose his financial aid. He has no idea what to do. He’s thinking of switching his majors again.
He’s also unemployed and having a realllllllllllly difficult time finding a job. I’m bringing everything in. AND we’re paying for the entire wedding ourselves. Everything is booked, all downpayments made. But it’s getting harder and harder to do EVERYTHING by myself and I just want to curl up in a ball and cry.
Don’t get me wrong, FI is trying. But there’s only so much one person can handle by themselves. I don’t know how to cope by myself and I feel very alone….
