I have not had the heart to come on to myLot or even to check my mail in about two months or more. I almost lost my home and the bill collectors are calling right and left. I have been just to depressed to do anything. So I took out my yarn again and started more afghans. I have done three and on my way to four. Do I feel any better you mite ask. Well yes and no. Got the home thing almost under control the credit cards no. But if they will hang on and wait then yes. I got laid off to first shirft again. Lost twenty five cents a hour. But at least I have a job. My renter as no job. Temp once in a while. Son's car broke down so now he is using my van to go to work after I get home. So that is why I have been missing. Just to depressed to do anything. I have missed all of you. Your friend onlydia

I am sorry that this has happened to you. I know that the economy has hit a lot of people hard, and I am sure that a lot of people have been depressed about it. My fiance and I worry about money but we don't have any bills to pay so we shouldn't worry. I think that it's normal to worry but I hope that you can be happier again soon. Have a wonderful and lovely day, and try mylotting more to get your mind off of things!

Well, it is getting tough. Every day brings something new that I don't need to hear. Now it is my dryer is broken again. But the good news is I made it all week at work. So can pay house as promised. I give them my hole check each week until caught up. Good thing I like pasta. I don't really like rice much. You have a great day.

There you are! I've been wondering what happened to you! Sorry to hear that you're having so much trouble. It's good, of course that the home is under control, that's the most important thing. Credit cards will wait. If you start getting collection calls, ask to have all contact via the mail. That will avoid harassing calls. Some credit companies will reduce payments for a period of time, other won't. But it never hurts to ask. With the way the govt is working with the banks, you think they would return the favor with their customers, wouldn't you? Good luck girlfriend, you were missed a lot.

Here's a little tidbit of info that you might like. If you ask them NOT to call you at home (or work), and they continue to do so, that is harassment. The calls should stop immediately.

I hope that things improve for you soon. I know how depressing it is to have all of those bills and those collection calls. It can be very hard on you and cause you to not want to do anything. However, please know that you can do things to help improve the situation and this is one of them. Use the money that you make here to make one payment on one of those cards per month. It is not easy to make payout here,but it can be done. We have missed you and we will look forward to your responses and discussions here now that you are back.

Well, thank you. Now I do things in small ammounts as on mylot 10 and then go do something around the house come back and do some more or go play a game. This way I don't get overwhelmed as I did before and If I miss some that is ok. As there is no way to keep up with all my friends as I did try. I just couldn't do it. I sat here one day and looked at my email and I had over 300 I shut it down. I shut down as well for about two months almost. I now feel better. It is ok to miss a few. it is ok not to make everybody happy. You have a great day. Your friend onlydia

Sorry to hear you have been having so much trouble. It seems like the economy is hitting everyone hard, and sometimes it can feel like there is nowhere to turn. I am trying to be optimistic and hoping that things will get better soon; they'll get better for you, too.

You are really going to like this I got a new credit card in the mail today. I mean really. So that was my laugh for the day. I cut it up right off the batt. You have a great day. Yes I have tried working with most of them. But they get greedy. I told them I'm paying each one off one by one. two are paid off. I was happy. I could file the big B but I'm not like that. I will pay it. YOu have a great day. Your friend onlydia

I am sorry to hear about that. I was worried about you. I hadn't seen you on here for a long while. I can understand how you feel. We are having major money issues ourselves. I don't care about the credit card bills, I just ignore the calls anymore. Thank God that you still have a job though. I hope that you come on here more now. If for anything just to get some earnings for participating. Hang in there. It will get better. It always does. Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

Have I told you how much I dislike first shift. I was only on it for my son. I have never been a morning person. I would get up at about 8:30 9:00 am maybe on a good day. Not go to bed until 4:00am. Now I have to get up at 5:00am and be working by 6:45am get off at 2:45pm rush here lines no matter where you go. I liked it when they laid me off to second shift. Now back on first ICK. But the bills will work out I pray. I had to swith to free member on winster. But that is ok. your friend onlydia

I got overwhelmed with it all. I tried to keep up with all my friends here and go and answer everyone and play on winster and do survey and go to work and pay a bill here one not there. I shut down I couldn't take it anymore I couldn't please everyone so I just shut down. I'm ok now as I know that I can't please everyone and it is ok not to answer everyone on mylot. That my friends will understand that we all can't get to each other all the time. So now I go and do so many here and there and maybe play winster and maybe not as now I'm not paying for it so I don't feel like I have to anymore I just can. I pay a bill here and there. All my checks are going to my house payment until april 3rd and then I will be out of trouble sort of. Then at least back on track. Wish me luck and say a prayer for us all. Your friend K/onlydia

I just got laid off on tuesday the 17th how rude. Got a plan all done to save the house and bang shot in the butt as have to redo it. They can't get me down now. I was down for two months almost. crying and doing the math. yelling at credit card people. now back to square one. But I had a back up plan. That is good. And if this one don't work then back to the other back up plan. Run for the hillscatch me if you can. Just like you son all grown up so sorry son on your own now Mom is gone if plan B doesn't work. Your friend onlydia. I really did miss you.

Making the effort to do something is the best remedy for depression. I know depression. Its awfull but you must try to get the better of it. I also know bills I can't pay. I have some of those now. You just need to pray and keep going.
