I am so sorry you are feeling this way and I can toally relate. While I am only 25, I feel very much behind my peers financially. I went to school for 6 years, spent $70 grand and now I am in my career job and I only make $22 grand a year and I hate the job. I have only been there 2 months and I’m already thinking about going back to school. I am a teacher and for some reason, even though I am very well educated and was on the Deans list..I cannot find a job outside of my field. My loan debt (at the cheapest rate and even with one loan on forberance) is $500 a month. My Fiance didnt go to college and he makes $15 grand more a year than me. I work long hours 12-14 hour days, I’m too exhausted to go to the gym, I’m 30lbs heavier now than I was 2 years ago.My Fiance is working a second job just to help me pay my loans and for our wedding.

I TOTALLY can relate. We would like to have a baby in the next two years but I am afraid we wont be able to afford it OR I will be back in school. 

Life is frustrating. I’m glad I’m not alone. 

To cheer up, take a bath, drink some tea/wine, read a book, look at wedding stuff or pinterest or whatever gets you our ‘fix’. lol. 

Good luck girl!

I can relate to what you’re going through. I am 34 and have a ton of credit card debt (most of it was accumulated from July of 2010 till this June, when I was out of work). My sister, who is 5 yrs younger than me, just got a substantial raise. She will be making SEVENTEEN thousand dollars more a year than what I make. I am currently renting a basement apartment w/ my SO, whose financial situation is a little – but not much – better than mine. This is *SO* totally not where I thought I’d be at this age  =(

I am so sorry you are having a bad day ๐Ÿ™  I just wanted to say something regarding PCOS.  I do not have it, and I did conceive my first child with no problem, but in our quest to have a second (which never happened) I had 4 miscarriages.  The dreaded “unexplained infertility.”  I just want to say that when you are ready to start trying, do NOT waste your time with your regular OB, no matter how much you love them.  Get an RE (reproductive endocrinologist) from the get go.  They will test you for a million more things than a regular OB will and they’ll look at far more regarding blood work and levels.  I know so many women with PCOS who have easily had kids because they were with the right doctor who was looking at the right things ๐Ÿ™‚  And for the record, I had my son when I was 31.  It’s not old, lol!  If you get in with the right people especially since you already know you have PCOS, chances are you will be fine!  Hugs!!

**hugs** I am in almost the same exact boat.

My boyfriend and I have ALL of our credit cards maxed out. Well, I should really say all of HIS credit cards maxed out. My credit is in the 500-range from bailing on student loans…

I don’t work because of anxiety, so I receive disability. I feel so crappy because of it. I’m seeing a therapist (which costs $80 a visit. So I can only afford to see her twice a month.. honestly? it’s not helping at all.) My boyfriend has a decent paying job, but it’s almost impossible for 2 people to live on 1 middle class income.

I’ve set a budget with every penny accounted for every month, with no room for errors…

…so of course, with my luck, we got in a car accident a couple of months back which completely totaled our car.

It wasnt our fault, some guy hit us because he FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. We cant even sue him because he was visiting from another country. So we lost our only car and got injured and have nothing to show for it besides debt and more debt.

I feel so inadequate compared to some of the girls I went to HS with. A lot of them living in $500,000+ lavish homes and already have 1-3 kids.

I’m 27, I have no degree. I screwed around bouncing from one college to the next, changing my major along the way, dropping out every other semester due to anxiety and depression. I’ve finally decided on a major, and will hopefully be starting my final journey next spring. It’s gonna take me 4 years, but it’ll be worth it. Better late than never!

About the PCOS, both my sister and my mom have it. I’ve never been diagnosed… but it’s probably there.

Even if magically my boyfriend proposes to me, we cant afford a wedding. My sister got a magical $30K wedding (she’s 11 years older than me) because that was back when my dad had a really good paying job… now he’s retired and he and my mom are struggling for money.

I feel like giving up almost all the time because all roads lead to dead ends and more debt and money we just don’t have. But… my boyfriend is really supportive, and encouraging. He says the same things too… “don’t compare yourself to others” “things will get better” “dont be so worried”…

I guess it’s worth living just for the hope that maybe, just maybe, things will get better, and life will finally give me a f*cking break. lol
