I graduated from college last year from a highly respected university. I was told that my degree would be in demand and that there was no way I wouldn't get a job coming out of college. Fast forward and the recession hits, I've been living at home with a huge amount of debt that I've been barely able to ding anything out of with my $8.40 an hour McDs job I don't know how much more of this I can take, I've applied to everything in the world and haven't even heard back from anyone. I want to kill myself, this pain and embarrassment has gone on too long. I don't know what to do, I've tried everything I could to come out of college successful, but life had other plans. I didn't even party or socialize that much in college either, I just studied and worked my butt off because I thought that's what was needed. I was wrong. I am screwed, I want to die. If it weren't for the shame it'd put on my family I would end myself in a heart beat.
