I’m 61 years old, never married, no kids, closest family members have passed away. I had a very good career, owned my own home, etc. Over recent years have lost about everything, Can’t find a job. No one wants to hire me because I’m too close to retirement age, insurance would probably be pretty expensive, and with my experience, it’s cheaper to hire someone else fresh out of college. I owe some big taxes from better times and the feds are coming after me for that. I can’t pay. I can barely pay my rent and bills on a part-time, no-benefits job. The feds say they’ll garnish my wages — take what they say I owe from my check before I get it. I won’t work that way, as their slave, and really can’t afford to. I’m thinking of suicide as a nice way to just “check out.” I’m sick of it. I’m tired. I see absolutely no future for the USA and no hope of getting back on my feet with this kind of economy. And it’s not going to get any better with the people now in office. I don’t know how I can hold. What do you do when death looks more attractive than life?
