other advice (post new situation)
"I have nothing!"
This is so embarassing for me to discuss I do not want anyone around me to know my financial situation I am just looking for advice from someone who may be able to give me some good words of encouragment. I lost my job about 6 weeks ago. At the time my boyfriend had just broken up with me and our lease was up on our house. I had no where to go and only enough money for one more car payment. My ex boyfriends parents told me I could move in to their garage apartment if I needed to. So here's where I stand...I have NO money...and by no I mean maxed the credit card, my bank account is $300 negative, and I think I have two quarters in my wallet. My car payments are 2 months behind, my gas tank is on Empty, and my cell phone has been turned off. My ex-boyfriends parents live in the country which is about 20 miles from the nearest Walmart or restaurant to find a job at. I have applied for 24 jobs and have not heard back on a single one. I have no family to help me. I feel like I have lost all hope. Can anyone out there give me any advice? Thank you so much in advance.

If you have any girlfriends, call them. I wouldn't move into an aptartment belonging to my ex-boyfriends parents. Like you said, no work; but also a degrading situation to watch him come and go w/different women. Go to a shelter, look in ads for a roomate. You are not alone. Head up, chin high and pray. You don't always get what you want you get what you need.

Try to contact your own parents and ask for a small amout of money. You dont have to tell them the full problem. Keep applying for jobs and SAVE whatever money you get. If you cant get employed by a facility then you can do some jobs for your ex's parents or other people around you until you get a real job.
