Help! My life is stuck in a rut

By on Dec 12th
My husband and I are happily married with two dogs. He works as a full time security guard, and I've spent the larger part of the last three years unemployed or working minimum wage jobs.

We feel like our life is stuck in a never ending rut of my student loan repayment and unemployment. (I apply for ten jobs a day just to do something, but I always hear that I'm either not qualified, overqualified, or my credit is too poor).

We are desperate to move into our own place but it never seems possible; we live with my dad and he is beyond driving us insane. He wants us gone as well, but we are barely staying above water as is.

Has anyone else ever been stuck like this? How did you find a way out, even a place to start? -Ducky
