Life sucks

Posted by annon at May 7, 2012
Tags: 2012 May  Relationship

There is so much to say about my life, but I will just talk about what happened recently. I am 40 years old, just graduated from graduate school with a PhD. I may have a job, but I am not sure. It was hard for me to graduate and now I feel that I just squeaked by and have no future. I am divorced and have a 10 year old from that marriage. I got pregnant by accident and had a baby a year ago with a man I didn't really want to be with. Now we are together because of the baby and sometimes he makes me sick. He tends to drink too much and doesn't make much money working contruction. He is not very stable and I am afraid he is going to get fired and we will have no income. Because I was busy with school and children, I have no friends and I am lonely. I am stuck with a man because I need him to help pay the rent and I have a baby and just graduated at the age of 40. I see people loving their lives and having fun and I always feel that I have the short end of the stick.

You completed your PhD, and at the same time you slept with a person who drinks too much and works in construction. Granted, the enormous of hormones can make for strange bedfellows, but it is no excuse for not using protection. You might have a PhD, and you probably are good academically. But this one decision probably means that you lack some common sense. I think if 40 years and a PhD have not thought you the wisdom to use protection, then i find it really hard to muster any sympathy for you. Hope you find an opportunity that will provide you with peace, but i think you will probably end up kicking it in the nuts.

I was going to say the same thing, you didn't know how to use a condom at 38/39 years old. Come on. You made your bed, now lie in it for the next 18 years. I hope you can find a job, after completing a PhD you should at least get a good job out of it. Good luck.

Shut up you idiot. Most people today are superficial she's not going to be happy with anyone who's just concerned about their own personal affair. To the OP i think you just need a bit of the night life. Go out there and party!! Forget about all the shits in your life. Let loose.

with a PhD at your age. I imagine it would be tough to find job if you don't already have connection. What kind of research did you do? Can't you get your prof to hook you up to some companies in the field?

your man is not going to change. But you can. Focus on landing a job for yourself first. That is key to changing your situation. It sounds to me you don't really love your man. Once you have a job. You can reconsider your situation.

Forget it, just get wasted.

How can you feel like you have no future after getting a PhD? What did you study? I know several folks who have PhD's, but you're the first who seems unsure of what to do with it. Your age shouldn't be a barrier. I'm 47 and age doesn't stop for me getting good work. Get up and get on with your life. If there are things you want, go out and get them. No one is going to come knocking on your door and hand you things. And why do you assume everyone else has it good? Everyone has problems but it might not seem that way just by looking at them. If you ever get out and talk to people, you'll see.

Girl...get a job and then leave his ass!! With a phd you have to be able to find some type of work, even if its not a dream job at first. Don't stay with someone who makes you sick.
