Second this, childcare especially since it pays well and there isn’t an expectation of medical knowledge like with elder care.

OP, what is your situation? One second you’re saying “if” then “when.” First off, start by only paying minimum on any debt. You should be in survival mode right now. If you can’t land something design try a grocery store, Amazon delivery, or maybe a Census worker. I had a friend just get hired on for the latter and although temp, $17.50/hr is better than nothing. Maybe use any additional free time you have to learn a new skill (coding, UX design, video editing, maybe a new language, etc.)

$17.50 is what I'm making now😅

I do not wish to panic-monger, but I do want to make some plans while I’m sober minded.

Good luck OP. My current attitude is: if government is going to shut down the economy my student loans and rent are not getting paid. If they demand I tighten my belt, they can do the same.

So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year.

And this job was his first "professional" job and now that's out the window. While I trust in his potential, he's not dumb or anything. He's a bit slow (not very aggressive, quiet). I just keep climbing up the ladder so the gap is
