Margaret, it does cause a little pain in my chest when I read your post, I can tell you are a Social 4, (probably with a 3 wing), we are always thinking we are the lowest failing Sh!t on the face of the earth. But I have looked around and seen that there are so many many people doing and having and being less by our standards -- and, in fact, since many of them are NOT 3s or Social 4s, they are often pretty content with who they are! they do not look at themselves and say LOSER, and if they know that others consider them losers, THEY DON'T CARE --

If you really have a big problem that makes you feel like a Loser, I would get help through counseling. For instance, I used to have a big debt problem (over $10,000) that hounded me for years, then, because of the 7-10 year statute of limitations, the problem literally disappeared, but I didn't know that until I went to debt counseling a year ago. Now I have less than 2 grand debt (by choice -- 1500 credit card lines) and it feels wonderful. There are happy endings!
