I’m writing this with a heavy heart, I’m ashamed of my actions. I want to live a gamble/ debt free life for the sake of my 3 year old.
I lost control and lost $700 that was intended to help my family.
I want to feel better again, I don’t want to have these suicidal thoughts, depression and fear anymore.
I want to be healthy for the sake of my little girl.
I need to find a way to pay back the $700 and take control of my life.
I stated gambling because I wanted to get of financial problems but found myself in even bigger problems and pressure, I can’t sleep and eat properly because my problems overwhelm me.

I haven’t gambled since accumulating the $700 debt. I’m pleased to say I feel great, I want to do right by my little girl. I have paid $500 of the debt I owe and will surely finish the balance real soon.
I will be healthy for my little girl. I’m wiser now, I don’t want anymore stress.
