Hours Cut Again - Darkness Falling

I am doing everything right. I have never been late, never been written up. I am nothing but praised and thanked from most management and all staff doe my job and efforts. Yet even with added duties, my hours are being cut. I can't do this, I need to be able to support my family. I work nights and up almost all day with my 18 month old because we can not afford childcare (husband works days). Yet I keep getting less hours. I can't take a second job in the day because that would mean we would need to pay for childcare (1500 a month in my area). I don't know what to do. It took me a while to find this job. We want to move so bad because people from CA and TX are coming here in droves. There are not as many higher income jobs due to this, and the prices of everything are going up. Food, housing, everything. I feel like I am being backed into a corner and there is this feeling of darkness that feels like it is crushing my shoulders. I won't even be able to afford my therapy soon because of this, and I am already paying the lowest price possible every 2 or 3 weeks. I thought I was in a good place, but I guess not. It was a lie.
