Thanks for the encouraging words.I am angry at myself for getting into this position and scared I will never get out.
  It helps to hear about other people's sucess. I am single with 2 cats. I own a home but I got a 97% loan so I have
 minimal equity. I spent my 401K when I lost my job(bad idea) and just paid off the huge tax penalty. 
I have a wonderful aunt who is willing to give me $5000 to put towards my debt.  I have $221 in savings for emergencies. 
Where should I put the $5000 and what else should I do? 
 Here are my numbers.

My net monthly income is $2735
Monthly expenses:
Mortgage $765
Utilities   $103(elec, trash etc)
Car           $160(ins + gas)			
Phone       $108(includes home and cell)
Cable TV $55
Groceries  $200
Eating out $25
Church	      $100
Medical      $100
Earthlink     $46
