Hi Jamesbrown

GOOD FOR YOU! you are moving forward.

Sometimes it feels like slogging through molasses or sand.

I know this from experience. Back in 2000 I was 'released' due to no budget for my position... it was TOUGH, mentally and financially! but, it got WAY better in 2001 :-)

Keep going. You can do it. I trust it will get way better for you, too. :-)

Each month, you might review your budget and ask yourself if there is ANY amount that you can put toward the school loan?

Or, if it makes you feel better, start rebuilding the emergency fund/investing nest egg? You know, drip small amounts that you can afford, into it, just like you would DRIP into a DRIP account? This progress that you can verify, might make you feel better about yourself, your financial future, and just life in general?

Those are just suggestions. Sometimes, it's better to just hunker down and be static for a while. :-)

anyway, again, GOOD FOR YOU! Keep going :-)
