For me, not having a job is the most stressful and frightening thing imaginable. I lived, when I was young, always on the edge of poverty. My husband grew up so poor, that they lost their home, never had enough food.

I worked constantly since I was 16. Three years ago, I was laid off due to state budget cuts. I entered a nursing program while I collected unemployment benefits. But I realized that nursing was not for me, so I quit the program and totally freaked. How am I going to support myself?!!!

Then my former boss called and said the budget was restored -- did I want to come back to my former job? I nearly cried, I was so grateful.

I can't imagine being unemployed and just taking it easy. How do you support yourself? How do you deal with economic insecurity?

My husband's poverty as a child was so bad that he lives in fear of becoming homeless, even though he has been working steadily for years now.
