<< I do not have much invested in this account, only several thousand dollars, ...I stopped my small monthly contributions a few years ago but am wondering what to do now.>>

I have generally found that when you step into a trap, the best thing to do is to gnaw off your leg and move along. ;-( In your shoes, I would be inclined to pull whatever chestnuts I could retrieve out of the fire, and invest whatever is left in something better.

One of the common errors that people make is to stick with a bad choice in an attempt to save face and to avoid recognising a loss.

Good luck,
