Is this normal
my live doesn't make any sense and the S*** isn't stopping, and i feel that everything is a big waste. I was molested as a girl by my step dad. I lived through 2 devorces, I went to 8 different schools. After school things just got worse, I've had 8 jobs already and i can't seem to keep them, so I started my own business (my dad says one should never give up) and today at 25 I have R20000+ dept I can't even buy food, we stant to loose our house, I suffer from PCOS (I've already had 2 opporations the first when I was 19) and Ulsritive Colitis, I have problem wisdom teeth that keeps me ill, I can't afford fancy doctors. I can't get a job, my business is failing, I might never have children. So my question is: WHAT DO I DO? WHERE DO I START, HELP, suiside seems like the best solution but then I leave my family with all my dept.

OK, cins, you've had a tought life, as some of us do. Suicide, as you recognize, is not an option and certainly not a solution. Because you have complex and interacting problems, you might profit by arranging to be seen at your nearest Medical School, Dept of psychiatry, first, to ask for a comprehensive assessment and advice on treatment to help these different problems. Treatment there should be free or related to income which, for you, may well be free.
And wouldn't it be worth your while to see someone at your bank(s) to discuss your debt, and get better advice on managing it ? If you owe a significant amount of money, the bank would rather make a plan with you to get their money gradually, that to push you overboard and get none of it, so they ought to need to want to help you.
