You bet! I'll make a whole plate and set out a buffet. But Sush gets the first, most special plate.

I want a new life. I owe $400 for my electrical bill. I was on a deffered payment program. Well I was 6 days late. They took me off and now they expect the WHOLE thing. I have $700 worth of medical bills. I owe the state of Illinois $242 for providing me too much unemployment. I owe the US Government $611. I owe credit card companies $5,100.00
I owe my bankruptcy lawyer $800 from 3 years ago. My rent is $800 a month. My car is $212 a month. Phone & broadband is $60 a month. Cable is $10 a month.

I dont think Im going to make it. Im so afraid. I dont know what to do. And no one can help me really.

It's tough when you suddenly realize that you have all those bad things happening at once, DS. It might help to divide and conquer. You're overwhelmed because you added them all together and it scared you. Try to take one or two of the bills and/or bad situations and take care of that one or two. Then move on to the next. I think that might make them a little less frightening.

Sushi, do you have family anywhere near? Have you thought about a debt consolidation/counseling service, maybe through your church? We had a family member who did that and it has worked out well for them. What denomination are you?

Bluecat I have thought of that. I have been thinking about the right tactic. Right now folks, my bank account is close to zero. I dont have enough cushion. And I dont have healthcare yet either. What happens if I get injured? My credit has tanked too. I keep trying to put all of this out of my mind, but today everything hit at once. The accident THEN I had to pay to renew my license plate sticker. That was $95.00

It just never ends.

Im a non-denominational Christian. Debt consolidation might work but I hear that destroys your credit worse than bankruptcy. Is that true? Yes, I have family. They have given me about $2000 in the last few years. I cant ask for more. They live about an hour away from me. I cant move in with them. My job would be VERY far away.


I cant see a way out of this.

Sush - you get on the phone and talk to these people. Be honest with them - see what the least is they will take.

$95.00 for a sticker???? Ours is $22.00 - wow, that's a lot!

Call these people - you'd be surprised at what some will take as long as you are honest with them.

Any chance of getting some kind of job to make some money - any amount of money will help right now.
