I am so scared, Christmas is coming and I have no money and no job. I do not know what to do. The bills are piling up faster than I can possibly come up with money to pay them. My kids are not going to have a Christmas and it is all my fault. Please help.
I am freaking out because I have no job and no money

in response to Sandala... Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!! I appreciate having someone truly understand what its like...we will make it. I just have to believe that. I am feeling a little better now, still in the same situation but I have got to continue to have faith. You have faith too!!!
in response to Bdaa... I am also 59 years old, laid off from my good job, and I have the same unemployment situation! I know how you feel. I go from being depressed to hopeful and then back to depressed again. All we can do is hang in there. I also am praying for me and you. I was a retail district manager. I have applied for so many things. I am either over or under qualified. Maybe we and others in our situation should put our heads together and come up with something we could all do. Its worth a shot.
No job no money, living on what friends and family can afford to give me for help. I am so depressed, 59 years old laid off from my good job, no unemployment they say I was overpaid last time that I was out of work in 2008, and so I will not be able to collect unemployment again until 2014 aint that a bitch...I appealed the decision but I lost...I am so depressed I thought about hurting myself but I cannot do that to my family...I am praying for me and all of you.
in response to DEADBROKE216... I hear ya...except I'm in much, much deeper than you. 10 yrs. of college. Over 100,000.00 in debt. Working a part time job that pays approximately $500-600 a month. No handsome career on the horizon. Not even a glimpse of it. I've been to over 30 interviews. Unsure of how many applications, resumes, cover letters, etc. that I've sent out, but all of them have led me to no other place, but further in debt because I've shelled out an arm &amp; a leg to travel across the country (no exaggeration - I've been to a handful of out of state interviews). Still NO job offers. Not sure why I went to school. The job I have with an enormous degrees pays less, offers no benefits, and is putting me further behind because I can barely afford to live. I made more money with a high school diploma. I had medical, dental, and eye insurance with less education. Again, I ask what did I go to college for?????
I Don't Have Any Kids, But I Guess That's A Blessing FOr Me Because I Can't Afford No Children... I Been Unemployed For 10 Months, Zero Income,... Most People Think You Can Just Lose One Job & Jump On The Next Job With Ease, But It Doesn't Work That Way... Me Being A Young Black Man With A Criminal record, The System Believes That Young Blacks Are Unable To Better Themselves.... It's Tough Living In This World Cuz Everyday You See Things You Want, And You See Other People Who Have Those Things... And You Don't Wanna Have To Break The Law, You Wanna Get Things By Earning Them... If I Had Kids, I Would Probably Be A More Vicious Criminal, I Can't Let Those Who Rely On Me, Starve... It Seems Like When Your'e Broke, Friends Walk Out On You, Family Loses Faith In You, Females Won't Talk To You, etc.. For Those Reasons, I Can't Help But Feel Like A Loser.... I'm So Depressed Right Now....
in response to jayday1216... I agree 100%.. My job had a cut back in 2009. I went to school for medical assistant and completed the course with honors. I have filled apps. online and at every hospital from Revenna to Cleveland.. $15k in school loans and still no job!!!! What the hell did I go to school for!!! I'm sick of the system also!!! They tell you to get an education, but it takes 2-4yrs to complete a course(How do you eat between that time) and you have to pay them back for 10yrs..you struggle for the first 5yrs after college.. And just think when you went to school for the 1st 12yrs. Not even enough education for a career to afford and feed the family!!!! Thanks OHIO!!!!
i was feeling sorry for myself until i read some of your stories. my prayers are with you all. i dont have income either. im married with kids as well. how bout we all come together and figure out how we can make some real money. we need to understand the law and work around it. the gov. aint gone give us shit. im tired of working for them but they never come through for me. we need other alternatives besides stealing, killing, and borrowing. please share your ideas and let's do this together. put race aside and help each other.
