I was a homemaker for years, until I lost my husband to testicular cancer. He was very young - only 40 years old - and I am now all on my own raising our two daughters. The funeral costs pretty much wiped me out, so I am back at work after 10 years off the job. I am working as a secretary, but I just don't know if I can do it. I never learned much about the computer or anything - I just left it all to my husband, assuming he would always be around to care for us. I know this is what God has chosen for me, but I can't help and feel angry sometimes. Do any of you out there have any tips on how to get back into the swing of work after an extended period at home?

What an awful, agonizing, infuriating turn of events. And work? Obviously you are not one of the few who has, by sheer luck, or perhaps God has chosen them (and don't we hate them for it?), who love their jobs. I hope you can control the situation enough to seek help if your anger consumes you (like therapy, if you are one of the luck ones who has medical insurance)
It is your kids who are the most important. in the whole wide world. It is for them that you take the abuse, watch the clock, and feel like you are spinning your wheels--the blood, the sweat, the tears. They were your gift, and now you must survive solely to provide for them. They may not be capable of showing their appreciation--that canít matter. You may not succeed--there is that chance. You will do your best for them and we will be watching, no, cheering for you. They need you. Hang in there, dammit!
