  • No it's not worth my life. Things can be great things can also be bad. I would go get help from the state. Good Luck

  • Suicide is never an answer, and if you are truly feeling like it is, then call for help. All the stuff you said were issues are only temporary issues. Not only that, but suicide is a selfish way to push the responsibility to clean up the mess onto someone else in your family.

    If you are that desperate, get help now from a credit counselor, a suicide prevention hotline, social services, whatever.

  • No and if your thinking of sudicide you need to call the national sudicide hotline and talk to someone. If your on here then that means there are kids. Do you want to leave them without a mother?

    First stop and take a deep breath and stop listening to the news. If you believe in God then pray. Go find a job any job. You just keep applying till your feet are sore from walking. Job hunting is a full time job. Go to job & family services. Go to a local church (even better if you belong) and ask for temporary help. Ask around. Then take it one bill at a time. Remember to pay in this order: Food, shelter, (lights, heat, water). Check to see if you qualify for free phone, lose internet if you are not using friends/library. Just keep going. Its all you have. Suicide just creates problems for those left behind.

  • Stop answering your phone. Don't talk to collectors you can't pay.
    401K loss? Unless your within 5 years of retirement age, you have plenty of time to make up that money. Now if the perfect time to put more money into retirement. This stock is on sale! 100% of the 10 year periods in the stock market have made money. Step back and breathe. Things will get better.

  • Things can be more difficult than we feel we can handle. No one likes to lose money, or be cold at home or deal with family members and all their problems. We all get ill and we ache and we get sad. But as long as you have ONE SINGLE person who loves you and cares for you, then you have hope.
