"The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it." - Brene Brown
As a matter of fact, I don't think there is anything wrong with quitting your job and staying in school while receiving cash aid & food stamps. We actually encourage our clients to do this for the short term so they can finish school faster and then get the higher paying job where they won't need aid anymore.
So, while you are stressed, just remember you can give one thing up, and that's ok.
Sorry you are feeling so stressed out. ((((((hugs)))))))
Laughter will cure life's ills. Have you had your laugh today?
So what would that teach yourself and your kids? Do quitters ever win? Don't you want to show your kids, family, friends, and yourself that you are stronger than any of the BS that has been put on you? Yes, it is/can be very hard, anything good takes work and dedication.
Your not alone in what your feeling. Think what your kids are going through. You MUST become a leader and a role model, and we all know you can do it. Take a few minutes to gather yourself when you feel like this then hit every challenge head on. Stay strong, your kids are depending on you.
Hang in there.
(((will get by)))
Hang in there. Only you know what is right for you, but don't feel bad about doing what you need to do, and I'm sorry, but dental health IS VERY IMPORTANT and if that is what it takes to get their dental needs taken care of, then I am good with it. Dental problems can cause other problems in the body so regular check-ups and cleanings are important.

I hope you feel better for having vented it.
You know that if you REALLY wanted to give up, that is what you would do, not come here hoping for understanding or chastisement.
Do what you need to do. No fighting or anguish. Look at the big picture, do the right thing for now and do the right thing for later, later.
You are smart and strong and I trust you to do what needs doing.
Sometimes I just want to run away from home
I just finished a college program where when I get my license can do travel jobs, anywhere in the US. Recruiters find you a job, they find you housing, there is med. insurance, travel reimbursement and each gig usually lasts 3 months. I was thinking of going to Alaska
But I can't run away. (not right now anyway) My kids need me,(and my elderly Mom) I think of them first, plus running away won't make the pain go away, just time will.
