Hi everyone! 
I feel like i am kind of in a slump.  I have a good job, but i can't get ahead of my debt.  I have great friends, but sometimes i can't talk to them about what i feel.  I worry about everything!!!  I am always scared that I might have hurt someone's feelings, because i feel that i always am saying something wrong, or something i wasn't suppose to say.  i sometimes tend to have a big mouth!!!  Then when i am alone i just sit and think of all the things i have done wrong in my life. I am a very nervous person.  I don't know if this is the right site for me or not, so if you could let me know, if this is the kind of site that listens and lends a helping hand to someone who needs someone to talk to and lean on when times are tough!  thank you!

Of course this is "that" kind of site! We're here to listen and to support and to encourage and to care, my dear. While I feel a little fuzzy in the brain department right now (it's Sunday night, and I'm a college girl...enough said), I do want to let you know that you'll be in my thoughts...and in the thoughts of everyone else here. Please keep posting, keep us updated on how you're doing, and don't be afraid to talk to us about how you're feeling!

Much love,

Hi Worrywart,
Welcome to HW! This is a great site for listening -- and lots of helping hands tapping away on keyboards too! :)
You sound a lot like me ... I'm in my own slump. I have a good job too, but every month I send a huge whack of it towards paying off the debts I went into to get to this point. I pay off more than I have to, but I just can't stand being in debt anymore and I want to get it all paid off as soon as I can -- so there's never a lot left (no nice treats for months -- scrap that, *years*!) One thing that really helped me to get some sort of financial plan together was advice from a site called The Motley Fool ( or if you're in the UK). Loads of info that I never even considered before, and my finances are *definitely* on a better footing than they were a year ago.
As for my job... well, it doesn't make me happy at present and deep down I know I want to change (well, not very deep don these days!), but the finances stop me from doing this. So I'm sitting it out till they're in order and I've made up my mind what I want to do instead. I get the sense that I'd go for anything just for a change right now, and that ain't good!
I get very nervous and play things over in my mind too -- or at least that's what I was doing to a really excessive degree until I went back on anti-depressants about a month or so ago. Things have got a lot better now. I still get nervous, but the depression has lifted a lot and I'm not having panic attacks and such. Have you ever talked to a doc about these things? It might help you to go on something for your anxiety for now, just to get you through the slump.
Really good to meet you.

When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded...
