Hi Beth -

Thanks for your question. Sounds like you are double stressed between the issues at work and the financial troubles in your personal life. That doesn't sound easy.

There are some basic steps that you could consider taking right away in this EmpowHER share from Brionna Kennedy titled "Don't Let the Stress Get to You: 5 Factors to Calm You."

Professional resources are also available to help you, if you feel you need them. For example, in some companies there are Employee Assistance Programs, or EAPs, which are confidential counseling services from an outside company. If that's not feasible, then a private counselor could be very helpful in providing a safe, secure place to talk about what's stressing you and to get some practical, concrete guidance on what you can do, based on your own personal situation.

There are also financial counselors who can help you with assessing your situation, building a budget if needed and some help people negotiate lower rates on debt. If you do decide to get this type of help please be sure to check the company out very carefully through consumer organizations such as the Better Business Bureau.

You can find several articles about stress in the Stress Section of the EmpowHER site. Why don't you look through those too, as there may be some that relate directly to the specific issues you're facing right now.

Does that help? Would you like to share more about your situation? - it might help you in getting more suggestions.
