Heya @dustb0wldance thanks for sharing all of that, definitely a lot on and no doubt you're feeling overwhelmed but there IS a light at the end of the tunnel amidst this chaos this I promise you
I actually have been in a very close to identical position. Lost job, lost house, lost relationship etc. One thing I would like to focus on though is this - "the more it all falls apart and I keep telling myself that something's gotta give but every time something does the universe just takes again" .. This is amazing to me. People who fail/struggle/uphill-it are actually the people who try to better their lives. I know a bunch of 20-somethings/30-somethings who live at home with a stack of cash because they're too scared to leave home as things could "go wrong" or it'd be "too hard". So straight off the bat, well done on attempting to better your life. And do remember the journey is not over yet, and hooray for your lovely partner who I am sure understands your stress at the mo
Pep talks aren't super useful right now however so I am going to link you up to some services below
- Emergency Help [click here] - Emergency relief can act as a safety net for people experiencing financial distress or hardship and who have limited means or resources to help them alleviate their financial crisis.
- Money Smart Free Financial Counselling [click here]
Also is there a way you can chat to the old job and say you're super keen for more hours? thinking of you
Is rent and bond paid? If so you would have approx a month to sort yourself before more rent is due? Can you put a hold on direct debits for a bit? The free financial counsellor listed above would have more info on this.
Remember Lifeline, KHL etc if you need further support.
