Not only did I get the news a few days ago that my student loans ran dry and now I can't finish my bachelors ever til I pay off that 57k I owe, my dear pet rabbit suddenly died in my arms yesterday.

How much is one person supposed to be able to carry? Seriously.

I've sobbed more this week than any other.

How could it get worse? Well, you could have kept borrowing on your student loan and gotten further into debt. What kind of work are you planning to get into? What prospects do you have to begin paying it back?

I am deeply sorry about your rabbit, though. I love animals too.

edit: This is not meant to be harsh, I am honestly happy that you are not getting yourself further into debt. Even bankruptcy won't make it go away. It's a trap.

My dear I do feel your pain...I Truly do...but in life today it can get much worse. I have lived the past 5 years with loss of income and loss of my mother and father. Do what I do stick with the people that love you...family and friends...it is the best medicine. This comes from a guy 58 years old that has been around the block. Remember Loved ones! They make life better. I will pray for you.

How did you spend $57,000 and not get a bachelors degree?

Working for a college (although a community one), I can tell you, that most, if not all, colleges are raising tuition, because the gov (state gov as well as fed) is cutting fed and state spending to the schools. This is still happening where I work, not only that, but we have not gotten a raise in two years. This situation is much worse then most realize.

So, to answer the question, it is very easy to spend 57K and not get the degree.

I know you've had a hard week... please know that yes, it can be far, far worse. You could be in a country where they don't allow women to step outside of the house without an escort, or get an education in the first place. Your beloved pet gave you friendship and plenty to smile about.. it would crush me if my furry companions were no longer here, and I've lost not only a husband but the best cat ever in the span of a month before. You have friends, even here at the wild and weird ATS who understand the pain and despair. Don't ever, ever give up though! Take time to let the dust settle, let your mind rest and heart heal. Be still, then the path you need will reveal itself.

I don't know your beliefs, but regardless of what they are, I have learned a hard lesson in life. At least in mine.

Never say those words. The ones in your post. I don't speak them, I refuse to think them, and even reading them almost feels like a curse.

Every time I have, I got my answer.

The answer is yes.

It's almost like... opening a door... or something. Hard to explain.

But, when you say those words, and I have seen it with other people, it is like an invitation to trouble or something. It never fails that almost instantly, something will happen to answer your question. And it is always doubly compounding your trouble. You may have to learn this lesson the hard way, I know I did.

I would ask those same words, over, and over as my life almost seemed to spiral out of control to the depths that alnost seemed unrecoverable. I stopped asking. One day, I realized the pattern. I talked to my husband, and he did too. We agreed then and there to never ask those words again.

I know it may sound odd, but really, it's true.

Of course bad things still happen, but not on the magnitude they were. Nowhere even close! Call it superstitous, call it Murphy's Law, call it what you will, I just so firmly believe in it I felt compelled to share my warning with you.

I am terribly sorry about your Bunny.


I do hope things get better.
