I think i might be depressed. I have 3 children and they are 4,5 and 6. my hubbbies to busy at work and i dont feel i get enough attention as I used to believe in a fairytale like living but of course reality is quite different. I am now looking for a job but the market is very tough out there. I have been out of work for a while now and desperately need a job not for money but my sanity and stimulation of the mind in another environment and to have a bit of a social life outside the family. It seems like its a no win situation though,cos I do love studying and I am a bit of an academic, but my husband keeps telling me i wont be able to complate a degree cos i wont get time and I am determined to do one but the money has to come from him. Were doing our house up and he is spending so much on the house and it hurts that he cant give me that little bit to perhaps do an online course even(distance learning) as an alternative to uni.please help. I think im going to go crazy if I dont do something soon!
I'm sorry you are going through this- sounds like a really hard situation.
I think you have a few options- first of all, have you contacted your local community college? There are also online studies- both could be done part-time with a lot of flexibility for your schedule. Do you know what you want to study? A lot of degrees are subsidised for people wanting to get back into work- I know people doing nursing degrees this way. Things like volunteering or a new hobby are also a great way to spend your time.
