2 years ago my X cheated, I fell apart personally, I thought it was all my fault and did all I could to "fix" things. My job suffered, and for the first time in over 12years I became unemployeed.
@ the end of my job I was falling behind in support payments, I lost time due to weather, s/t that had never happened before so the X was telling her lawyer I had the $$$, I just wasn't paying. It took 2mo to get before a judge and straighten that out and now I'm not looking forward to going back to work to get behind in payments...but we need the insurance. I live in IN, in this state they look @ what you made the previous year, divide by 52 and that's ur payment. Well I lost the best, highest paying job I'll ever have so why go back? I'll never get that job back and just being a worker won't pay the same, I'll make $30,000 less but they'll expect the same support $$$$.
I'm not a deadbeat dad but I'm not stupid neither, I did my best to keep the job, but the stress was just too much, I couldn't keep my mind on my job while I knew she was w/ another man. I'm past that but still how do I get back in the game w/o being over charged on money I'll never make again?
I just had a new hip put in and I don't have a work release yet but the day after I do I want to go back to work.
