Ouch, now I feel like a jerk for talking about it. ^_^;
Still, we were kind of in the same boat as well. My mom got let go by the company she was working at as a graphic designer for their ads. Then they tried to steal the design template she used for them, and it got into a big legal battle. Nearly drove my mom broke. And my dad's been living on L & I for his dual carpal tunnel surgeries. But afterwards my mom got new business from a nearby company and a newspaper a ways away, so it's gotten better. Heck, my dad's going back to school to get a degree so he can get a good job and get out of debt!
So don't sweat it too much. Life will get awesome soon enough.
