All Work And No Play

I'm so sick of everything. I too have had added responsibilities at work. I run a mailroom for the army national guard. In the past year my work duties have doubled. I did finally get a very small raise...2 pay days before the 2% social security tax increase which put me almost exactly back where I was. It's so frustrating trying so hard and literally watching your pay go down. On top of cutting back more and more, I still can't afford any fun. It just sucks not to be able to afford going to the movies (example) which barely qualifies as fun anyway. Literally have to sit at home and do nothing simply because I can't afford to do anything else. You can only go on so many walks and other free activities to try and trick yourself. As many other people do, I find myself asking whats the point in trying anymore? I really don't know what else to say other than good luck to all my brothers and sisters out there in the same boat. I'll keep trying to keep my head up and press forward. Keep hoping there's some light at the end of the tunnel somewhere. I just feel so lost and hopeless!

Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for what I have because many people have it a lot worse and I do realize this. Nonetheless it's still very frustrating.
