I don't know if this goes in this section but I believe most internet marketers deal with tons of stress. It comes along with the business I suppose.
Anyhow, I've been at this for 10 years. I've had some great years, decent years and this year...this year has been extremely troubling for me. I went from making probably 70k per year to barely making $300 per week at this moment. I blew a lot of money in the past but I also saved some, just in case. My money has just about run dry now and at a bad time.
I was hit with a child support order yesterday in the amount of $540 per month...I know that does not sound like much but when you're struggling to make $300 per week and you have a mortgage, car payment and utilities where does that other money supposed to come from. I don't have any extra money to take care of myself now.
I'm not shying away from what I'm supposed to do and I never will. I want to take care of my son. I have him 50% of the time. I love my son to death...but I'm afraid. If I can not make the payments, I could face jail time. I've never had any problems with the law in my life. I am afraid now.
I've never had to depend on anyone for anything. I always help my family members. I do what I can....No ones in a position to help me, not ever. It feels bad when there's no one there. My sons mother, after we split, she started collecting welfare, section 8, etc., all her living expenses are paid by the gov't....my son is on her medical insurance policy which is why CSEA came after me for child support....I just feel as though the system is screwing fathers...I've always taken care of my son...Today was the first time I've ever felt like I completely have enough....I could barely look at my son...it hurts..
My advice though, if you are making good money online, put it away, dont blow it...I was rolling at one point...look at me now, scuffling for $300 per week article marketing...I never thought it would ever come to that.
I apologize for the rant but I don't have anyone to share my feelings with. I don't want to harm the integrity of this forum...but..I'm just having a hard time today...
