If you are feeling suicidal, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK http://www.Suicide.org
To the person who found my site by searching ‘I have so much debt I want to kill myself”, please get some help. I could interpret that statement as hyperbole, but I don’t take that statement lightly. Hopefully by searching for such a thing, you are looking for others who are going through something similar, but I beg you to also seek professional help. There are many counselors out there that can help you work through this issue. If you don’t have health insurance, or can’t afford counseling, research your local university, church or community services. Oftentimes there are services for reduced cost. When I was going through my own very dark time with life, I went to counseling for $5 a session.
The resources are out there, you just need to find them. There are people out there that want to help, you just need to find them. I’d love to hear from you, so please feel free to email me.
I understand how you can feel completely overwhelmed and paralyzed by massive debt. The helplessness, guilt and self-doubt that comes along with debt can be debilitating. But whatever you do, don’t kill yourself over debt. It’s not worth it. Be strong, find a community and get help. Reach out. Talk it through, and just remember it’s just money. You can’t take it with you. Killing yourself may seem like the easy option, but it’s not. If you feel like no one cares, I hope to prove you wrong, because I do. This blog is dedicated to working through some of those deep, dark feelings around debt and I value everyone who is on this journey.
