    Hi all,
    I'm suffering terribly as I am going to lose everything and cannot seem to stop worrying to the extent that I cannot sleep, stay still I just keep pacing the floor. My husband is divorcing me and we are going to lose our houses. I'm worried as we have an 18 and 21 year old both not working. I don't believe I can work now as I have MS and a mental illness and both are at an all time high. Loss of use of left hand and cognitive reduction also I have lost all my confidence and have very low self-esteem.

    I would be open to any advice and support if you can help me please?

    Thank you

    Hi, welcome

    Ok, what is the worse scenario? Bankruptcy? Such fear is more fear than reality. When made bankrupt you can still operate normally in life but with limits on finance borrowing. It's not that bad.

    Many people we never hear about fall on bad times. When it happened to me in 1996 I separated from my wife, lost my full time fatherhood and lived in a 3 metre long caravan. The sadness stayed for 3 months then it turned around- how?

    Well in my case I found a new direction in a block of land and built a kit home but it could be any number of activities that allow you to progress. The important thing is to a/ accept that your situation is temporary b/ that you need to remain positive and c/ that worry only produces ulcers.
