    I've been thru detox and am still fighting the bottle. My van was hit and badly damaged last week and I'm sick as a dog with a bad cold. I hope the rest of the new year goes better than the first four weeks.:sad: Financial depression on top of mental depression is unmanageble. Suicide is only an escape fantasy cause I promised I wouldn't do that to my kids and dogs. So I'm forced to stay alive, barely, tho I don't call this 'living', it's just existing.:sad:

    Can very much relate to this, 2008 feels like it came up and smashed me over the head.
    Have to ask myself, can it get any worse:blink:

    well on top of still feeling sick, I went out to go somewhere this afternoon and my van wouldn't start. So now I have to get that fixed...:sad::mad: Every time I think it can't get any worse, it does. I feel cursed. So now the jobs from early this week that I rescheduled for tomorrow and Friday may not happen if the van needs more than a 'jump start'.:sad: If it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have no luck at all...

    I just paid $40 to have the van jump started, the last money I have, and I let it run for a while to charge up the battery, then I just wnet out five minutes ago and it would n't start. I have no more money and can't get to my job this afternoon to make any more. I'm ready to just give up. I can't take anymore shit.:sad::sad::sad:

    You should have bought one of those battery jumpers. I picked up one for about $40 and it works great.

    that hits close to home. it tears me up inside to hear that you are struggling so much. you are in my thoughts and prayers. :hug: i am here for you if you EVER need to talk.

    Well for the bargain price of $163.24 I got a new battery in my van so it should start every time i get in it... so far... Now all I need is... somewhere to go...:blink: And something to do once I get there... that makes money, hopefully...:unsure::blink:
