DEAR ABBY: I’m at my wits’ end. I have been unemployed for almost two years. My wife has been working during that time. We have two girls I take care of as a stay-at-home dad. Although I have consistently searched for work, I haven’t found anything, and it’s driving me crazy. I have edited and re-...
