2009...feeling the pinch?

February 9, 2009 8:31am CST
I spend a month in southamerica visiting my family and my very ill father just to come back and find the big economic crisis we are living in. Obviously I lost my job by going away more than a month away and that ment I now owe a lot of money, cant find a job, I have been depressed, sad, and the worst thing is that i cant sleep at night. Because Iam a person from another country, the department of work and pensions wont help me even if I have a daughter who was born in the UK, for that reason Im taking it to tribunals tomorrow and see if I can get all the benefits that correspond me and my daughter. I have heard my next door neighbour is going to get her house reposes,!! and Im about too aswell!!! I just cant believe this whole crisis is affecting me so closely, Im trying my best to find a job but it doesnt seem to be much work around. Sometimes I do think that things can not get any worse but then my ex comes in the picture and threats me of taking me to court to ask for full custody of my daughter, how can the world be like that. So yes! like you are hearing, Im a wreck, im sad, sad, sad, im loosing everything including my daughter, and how can I fight her custody if I dont have money to pay a proper solicitor!! Who else is this world is loosing about almost everything? (and please also im looking to see if I can get an unsecured loan from a company that dont ask for a guarantor, please advise) thanks for reading.(at last i keep my smile)
