Well, I opened a checking account on Saturday, but I didn't make any progress Sunday, and I'm a bit more worried. The more I consider the visit to the lawyer, the less I feel we accomplished. She got paid to give us an hour's sales pitch, but carefully refrained from giving any unequivocal advice. Now I'm living off my brother's charity but have no guts to take the next step(s).
I have to keep focusing on being positive and telling myself that I'm worth it, that this is just a temporary pause.
