Personally I have been going through it. My emotions are all over the place, this does nothing but wreck havoc on my finances. I hope things will settle down soon in my head. I have not been able to blog a few times per week as I would like. There is not much going on in the finance department. The emergency fund is still in tact. I am still working at the part-time gig, and paying down my debt.

One bit of good news..... a small unsubsidized student loan now has a zero balance. There is another unsubsidized student loan that has a balance of $987. I hope to pay this off before I go on vacation in June. The interest is lower compared to my credit cards, but at this point I need the pay off letter for the emotional boost.

congrats about getting that one student loan down to a zero balance.

I hope everything else goes better for you also.

I admire your hard work.

Don't be discouraged. I know that this is a difficult time for you but, look at what you are able to accomoplish. You have paid off some debt. I think that is a reason to smile :O). But I understand the whole emotions going everywhere but where you would like them to be. I'm going through it right now. I know what I have to do but it hurts too much to do it. I have trying to drown myself in work but, when I go to bed and wake up in the morning I am a mess. I can't hold it together. I am just trying to hold it together till the weekend and then I'll let the flood gates go and have my boo whoo fest. :*O).

Just remember that for each of our lives a little rain must fall. It won't last always. We both just to learn what we need to learn from these situations to make us stronger

Keep breathing deep, spring is coming, you knocked down a debt to zero, this is just a low patch...may not help you feel better but it bears repeating: you inspire a lot of people with your example and this blog. Me, for example, I admire how hard you are working...thank you.

Good luck with dealing with family. It can be very frustrating dealing with them individually and collectively. You've done so well so far, you deserve to be proud of what you've accomplished!
