Anyone else stressed out?

Well, we here at "Stressed is the New Black" are not ashamed to admit that the financial situation that this country is in has us VERY STRESSED!! That says alot. You see, I have been in a constant state of stress for almost 3 years since the real estate market started sliding in late 2005. As most of you know, My dad and I are partners in a real estate business and have been in the business literally forever. We have never seen anything close to this and unfortunately we saw this coming a long time ago. Our country's leadership has totally let us all down. Now, we are all left holding the bag and there certainly is no money in it...VERY scary times indeed.

People and businesses are not able to get credit. Credit lines are being frozen and lowered and students are having a horrible time getting student loans. As business owners we are dead in the water. We need change and we need it now!

I feel sickened for people facing retirement or are already retired and I feel so worried about our children's future.

I am talking about this on my blog because this is so important. All of our financial futures depend on it and none of us are exempt; none of us!

Get involved, speak out and most of all vote for change in November.

You know where I stand on this situation! Yesterday was pure hell.

November needs to bring about some huge changes. I don't know how much more our country can take.

I hear you loud and clear and the stress level in my house over finances is off the charts. It is truly scary and I am completely freaking out about how am I ever going to afford to continue with the adoption. That's my reality now and I'm really worried.

I already sent in my request for an absentee ballot. The US situation is affecting the entire world, just look at the global markets yesterday for proof.

We are stressed out about it too here in WI, it's a total mess and so worrisome. Hoping that change will be coming soon.
