Mabey it's just me but I don't think the lady is depressed, I just think mabey she's lived a lower/middle class lifestyle all her life and dosen't know how to be extravegant.  She may be a little depressed or regretfull of all the media attention but what's done is done.   And as far as a life coach I personally think their full of it.  She seems to have her head on straight and is caring for her son and his well being, far better than some rich celebs!  I think mabey she's a little co-dependant on her son and needs to get out and have her own life.  She needs to learn it's ok to go out on a weekend on her own and let loose.   Not go out drinking every night, but take a night out with friends or a romantic date and go eat at a nice restaurant and have a bottle of champagne.  You don't have to go all out and spend your money in crazy ways like David Edwards,  but what's the point in having a pile of money if you can't enjoy a few of the finer things in life?? Just my 2 cents.

    She is being a decent mother and not going off galavanting around the world. She is maintaining a somewhat normal life for her kid, and yet folks misinterpret this article with such rhetoric. She isnt blowing the money. I empathize with the idea of being hounded by the press or hand out stories. No one needs to endure that on a daily basis. Hats off to her for winning and for NOT blowing it . No where did she personally say she wishes she didnt win. No where did she personally say it was a curse to have the money. 

    No one need ask anyone to feel sorry for her. Its the press that is creating this air to this story and as a reader some of you really read way too much into it then was actually factual.

    When the time is right she'll make good of her fortune.

      Come to a small rural newfoundland Canada town and you will be just fine. We do not care how much money you have. We are a great bucnh of poeple and we are loved by many.

      Life is great here!


      Something to consider... you could move here and blend right in and no one would brother you unless you let them.


      You can never win too much Money... Decide how much you want for yourself and just give the rest away to a good Charity that will give to all charities.


      Keep Just want you want and go public about it...

      Let everyone know you gave it all away and just keep enough for your self.


      Best of Luck!

      Quick Piks are the only way to win!

        Journalism in Great Britain is a little crazy.  The Daily Mirror is a very conservative publication, far right.  I'm sure this is a story that attempts to put down the lottery, much like the publications here in Oklahoma.  Right wing conservative, if you don't do it my way you are wrong.  People are stupid with money, even when we don't have any!  I didn't read much in that story that was horrible and ruins someone's life.  Nice headline, that's all most people read.  Whoever wins the next jackpot, just give me the money so it doesn't ruin your life...I think I could live with $76 mill.

            I think she is acting to throw people off.  Most likely planning for her future ( New house, new cars. Trust, will, bank accounts, vacation plans, etc etc .  Once it is complete, I bet she will disappear with her Millions.   WTG smart lady!!!!
