Capitalism: A sad story

Money is the route to all evil.

We don't have any money.

It has lead me to think about doing something bad to myself.

The only thing that stops me is my family but I really don't care anymore.

After I get paid this week are bank account is still 400 in the red

[Admin here --

I spent a long period of time when I was younger dealing with constant money struggles. No matter how hard I tried, the bills were always late, the utilities were always about to be shut off, and the collection agencies just kept calling.

Regardless of why you find yourself in this situation, there IS hope. Money problems are so oppressively stressful -- I completely understand why you would feel like there is almost nothing left for you to do. All I can say is that after several years of struggle, I finally realized that the overwhelming depression associated with being poor all the time had crippled me to the point that I hadn't considered how to get out of it permanently in years. I ended up moving back in with my parents and dumping a partner who couldn't/wouldn't keep a job OR be responsible with what little money we had. I worked two jobs for a long time, started making on time payments religiously, and three years later, I had my credit restored to the point where I was able to buy my first house. Things CAN get better -- you may have to look at options that you would rather avoid, but it's worth it. Each small step is one step closer to a long term fix -- and it may take years, but being financially stable in three or five or ten years is better than never. I sincerely hope that you pull yourself out of this. If I could, I'd give you a hug. It will be okay, someday!
