Need to Get Out Need to Get Away!

I am a newly wed.  Two months after our wedding Day my husband lost his job.  I work a commission job and business is slow I have no other skills to go anywhere else.  He's unemployment is not enough at this point.  No one seems to understand how hard this is.  the only bill we CAN pay is rent and electric.  lost our health insurance, my parents are paying my car insurance.  We couldn't pay my husbands car insurance so he can't drive now.  I'm constantly borrowing money from my parents.  I'm crying all the time, my husbands depressed because he can't get a job.  It's one NO after another for him.  We're young and we don't have the experience to keep our heads up and see that's it going to get better.  I just want to get in the car and go. The anxiety is getting worse the panic attacks and break downs are every other day.  I can't take this anymore.  Bad news everyday.  We were excited about getting our tax return back but it was rejected something was put in wrong and we were counting on that money so who knows what will happen now!  I don't know what to do, say, act or function at this point.

Is there anyway you can stay with your husband at your parents until life is a little easier? We were the same at the beginning and had to suck up our pride and stay at my father-in laws. At the time it felt like UGH but after 6 months life changed and we found our feet and were able to make it alone. It hasn't been easy since but the pressure was lifted enough and our self-esteem stronger.

Stick it out- don't bale.
