I'm sorry you're feeling that way. I know I've been there myself... But when I had a craptastic job where I barely made enough to pay the rent and get some food - I sure as hell didn't have phone or TV let alone the internet. I had plenty of books and movies to keep me occupied on my down time. Maybe you should start looking for ways to cut back on costs until you can straighten everything else out? Or maybe there's a chance for advancement at your work? Keep checking the papers for better jobs and cheaper apartments/houses!! If you pay car insurance, make sure you shop around every few months so that you know you're saving as much as you can. Other than that stuff - do you have friends and family near by? Maybe you just need to get out of your "routine" and do something new or explore a new part of town or something simple to get yourself over this slump. It would be a lot easier if you had a friend or 2... or 10, by your side! And last but not least - the hardest but the most rewarding - try and look at things a little more positively! I know we all need a certain amount of money to get our basic necessities... but its not all there is in life :)
