Hi. I am almost 50 and my husband and I are losing our home. We raised our children here...and I feel very down and sad. I know that circumstances are beyond our control and we can chalk this situation up to a bad economy and health issues. (My husband had to have open heart surgery last year). The mortgage company refuses to modify because we submitted modification/hardship papers two times.
What can I do to get out of the funk I am in? I was crying today as I packed up my pots and pans. We are moving into a rental that is 1/2 the size of our home so it will be difficult. I have to pull out my 15 1/2 year old from his high school to another district.
Don't get me wrong...I can see the glass as half full. I have my husband alive and well and I am grateful for that. I am just having a bad day. It seems like everything is crashing down around me. My husband was recently diagnosed with bipolar II so I have to deal with that on top of his heart disease. I recently took off the semester at grad school because I can't pack up a house, move and do both. Any advice would be much appreciated.
