It's kind of ironic, isn't it, that I have such an interest in money, how to save money, how to conserve money, how to get out/stay out of debt, etc., and I suddenly find myself married to a man with a bipolar disorder, who has such an overspending problem that it could be compared to a hardcore alcoholic needing a drink!

I guess once again I should "count my blessings", because if I didn't pay so much attention to "all things financial", we'd probably be in a much darker place. As it is, things aren't pretty, and I get discouraged, but every once in a while I see a glimmer of light (for just a brief moment) at the end of the tunnel....it's been so hard adjusting our two-income middle class bills to a one-income, almost lower class income. But for the most part, I've succeeded. It's just that discretionary income has really become a thing of the past.

But all things considered, I'm reasonably happy with my finances (today anyway!)
