But you just said you don't worry about money because your husband takes cares of the finances... which basically implies that you have nothing to do with the money.

I meant he pays all the bills, balances the checkbook, things like that. He deposits the money. He physically handles the finances. I just sit there and watch. I know everything that happens, I just don't physically handle it, is what I meant.

If something were to happen and he were to lose his job, I'd stress the f**k out about money, then.

I am learning very quickly to say no sometimes. It's not my responsibility to cover for every shift they can't.

Finances, for sure.



A close second is being overweight and needing that spark to get me to chance my life and make me healthy.

Living with my parents. Its the best situation we can ask for at the moment, but it still sucks. Long story short: my dumb ass wanted a baby ASAP after we got married at 19 almost 20, while I was pregnant my MIL died suddenly and left Sean a sum of money in life insurance which has saved our asses, we had both quit our crappy jobs though so rather than waste money on rent we moved in with my parents. We pay for everything we use, just no rent. We didn't plan on this baby until we were in our own place but shit happens. Now Sean is getting into a career he enjoys and makes good money so things are looking up for sure. We hope to be in our own place next year.

Quoting Twin's Mommy:" I don't really have any stressors. DH handles finances, I don't have a job, and any health things that would concern me, are out of my control, so I don't stress about that, either."


I'm kind of the same as you.



I stress about raising my daughter right, making sure I'm doing what I can to make sure this bun in my oven is as healthy as I can make her... but other than that, my hubby is in charge of finances (I have complete access to everything, he just is the one that is actually making out the bills and figuring that out because he has some complicated financial dealings that I would rather not have to figure out).



I am completely capable of doing my own finances-- I did all of my own bills, mortgage-ing/financing and budgeting from age 18 until I was probably 24, or when my hubby and I combined finances.

I could do them, if I wanted, but he actually likes doing it. He's an oddball like that. He's good at it. We've been together since 06, and have only paid one bill late, in that entire time, and that was because my mom's dickhead ex SO was supposed to bring me my credit card bill, and to get back at me, he threw it away instead. Douchebag. As soon as we noticed it never showed up, we called the company, and it was due the day before. I was so friggin pissed off.

My self esteem about my weight and looks is my biggest stressor. So my mental health. It is the root cause of my marital problems and with my job too. :x

My job. The money is nowhere as good as it was a few years ago, and one of my managers is an a*****e. He is clearly sexist against women, but unfortunately, nothing is blatant enough to report. He is, by far, the most inept and unprofessional manager I have ever worked for in my almost 9 years working. When someone is injured or has a serious family emergency, all he cares about is getting shifts covered. He doesn't care what happened to the person as long as someone can replace them. I'm going to be job hunting on my maternity leave, if not sooner. Just thinking about him stresses me out. :?

Mh biggest stressors right now are a huge conglomeration of work, money, an time management.
Mostly work. I work so much I don't have much time for other stuff, like spending serious quality time with my son. I don't get paid for one of my jobs (my apprenticeship) so I'm broke all the time working 60+ hours a week. I'm stretched pretty thin.
