Not that they can't defend themselves, but I think that Dale and Eric were just trying to suggest that you take on an additional part-time job to supplement your full-time income. Believe me, I often think that they come on a little strong, but in this case I think the advice is worthy of consideration. It's not an uncommon suggestion on this board (I think Leviathan has been the champion of the supplementary income in the past.) Anyway, my point is that in reading their posts, I got the impression that they were giving you another way (albeit a difficult one) to avoid having to file for bankruptcy. about 10 years ago, I was in a position similar to yours -- I made arragements where I could, and when I hit a brick wall with some debts, I took a long look in the mirror, lowered my standards and took a second job at Friday's. Was it fun? No. Was I embarrassed? You bet, I never wanted to see anyone I knew while I was there. But it had to be done, because I wanted a real life for myself, with a house and wife, and a car -- and bankruptcy would have made all that further away.Fight on! I personally would hate to see anyone declare bankruptcy becuase it seems like running up the white flag, and I hate to see people give up on themselves or their situation. I hope this works out for you...keep us posted.
