    I'm having a hard time today. I know others have far worse things going on in life, but in the heat of the moment its hard to see past myself.

    I work as a drug and alcohol counselor. Recently I recieved my licensure which in my contract I was then supposed to recieve a $1 increase in pay. That was back in January. I was told last week that everything went through and I would recieve a retro check this week. Today, they told me it would not happen till mid-April. In the mean time, my bills are piling up and I'm getting discouraged and pretty stressed out, I got kids to worry about. If it was just me I wouldn't care.

    So, I began writing on Hubpages in hopes of trying to supplement my income, though its difficult to find the time to write. I don't know what to do, guess I'm just looking for words of encouragement.

    Seriously, I'd quit wasting my time writing hubs and use that time to work a real second job that paid some real money.

    I agree with Disturbia.
    You can't possibly earn a substantial amount in such a short time on HubPages, and sometimes not even after a long time.
    Better would be to take on a part-time job until the bills are paid. You can go back to Hubbing when that's done.

    Being a writer was never a reliable profession, unless you hit big and become famous. Untill then I second Camlo and Disturbia. You need a stable job.

    Before the economy went south, I had two part-time jobs as well as my full-time job. Thats the problem, I cant find a second part-time job.

    I'm already feeling better, just needed to vent. I know i'll get through this, I've been trhough worse. Thanks for all of you letting me whine!
