          "Life can't be that bad, if you had a $100 to waste."

          Well believe me it is. I only wish money was the problem I had right now, my life would be infinitely happier than it is and I wouldn't be spending my days depressed locked in my room planning my imminent suicide.

           

          "And how happy would you be if you won?"

          Well it wouldn't make all my problems go away or completely change my life like it would for some of you, but if I had won I could distance myself from everything and live a reclusive life where I can deal with my own pain until the end of my days. I have little money left and I'll give it a few more tries to see what happens and if it was meant to be. On friday I figured I'd go for broke and see if I could pull a Jack Whitaker, but alas it was not mean't to be so here I am feeling just as low and wondering if I'm delaying my miserable end with wishful thinking. Thanks for listening to this pathetic rant of mine.

            "Action Jackson" Whittaker had several million backup dollars... his hundred was nothing to him...

            100 bucks a shot isn't worth it... maybe spread that 100 over several months ($5 per draw).

            you don't need tons of quick picks ,go with RJOH's advice if you feel the need to play many lines... don't leave it up to the state...

            You gotta be in it to win it.... that's true of every game, even the game of life...

            hang in there Ralfy!

            Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                 Hey Ralfy/Grayfox;

                    I was depressed when i was diagnosed with diabetes a few years back. I almost drowned in self pity.  After a year of comptemplating doing harm to myself I started to walk the golf carts paths of a large golf course across from my house in Boca Raton. Just watching those people trying to play the game was hilarious. Heck i was gone on 2 hour walks before i knew it. When i moved to Atlanta several years ago i continued my walking even with more vigor. This June 20 I will celebrate a full year of cycling...now thats the exercise that will help you mentally AND physically !!!

                    I ain't no spiritual speaker man, but get your butt up and get outta that place ... NOW!!

                    GOD  bless

                  If it is that bad, then you might have to do something very crazy, that is much better than killing yourself, get on your car or the bus with whatever money you have left and get out of where ever you are at and move to some other place, any place, just far from where you are at right now and start over any way that you can and forget about the past, do as if you have just been born and you was just begining your life and don't even think about the past, completely forget about it, do as if you have just come to earth (this planet) and don't look back, star fresh, I know it's crazy, but very much better than thinking about killing yourself, you just might have to get away, I know that the proper solution is to deal with and solve your probles and not run away from them, but if you just can't, then you might have no choice another better solution would be to seek and find

                  proper help right there where you are.

                  But if you think that killing yourself will end your problems, you don't know anything, if you think that you have problems now, just wait then, you haven't seen anything yet, kill yourself and you will know what I am talking about, but by then it would be too late, if you think that here on earth is bad, as bad as it is and believe me it is, you haven't seem anything yet, just you go to hell and you will find out what I am talking about, your problems here are no problems, you want real problems, just kill your self and you will have them.

                  Adieu.

                    Grayfox:

                    Your vision should tell you it's all a "game".  It's also how you choose to play the "game".....to win.....or to lose.  My definition of "losing" is "not trying" or "giving up".  In my opinion, you "lost" $100 because you trusted it all to quick picks.  Next time, put some color on some lottery slips in addition to quick picks.  If you put forth some effort, you have already begun "winning"!

                      Yes, there is no good excuse for someone to play 100 lines and not even hit the Mega ball.  As I said earlier, had he filled out his own tickets, it's unlikely he would have spent a $100 because filling out 20 tickets take time.  Before I retired, I was in a couple of lottery pools and it was easy to get participates to kick in $10-$20 for a big jackpot if they didn't have to make out tickets so most of the time we played QPs.  A lot of players think that way, they wouldn't make out a $5 ticket.

                          Please don't let diabetes be an excuse to do something stupid like kill yourself..your life is not your own to do as you please with it..There must be others around you family and friends who expect for you to act better.  If you can't afford to play 100 dollars, then don't..play $1.00.  It only takes $1.00.  If it is meant for u to win, u will.  If u are depressed get out of the house and start walking or something...find a project that you can work on..clean up your street or visit someone in the neighborhood who has the same interests you do..or become a volunteer and don't forget to pray and give Thanks for having $100.00 to play.

                          If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                          You never know when you will get another hit.

                            Take it as a lesson, never bet your eggs in one basket, forget about it and focus on your best numbers that you love, pick your favorite 6 numbers and take a dollar chance. Lady luck will smile on you when its your time. Enjoy life and enjoy these moments on earth as they are very precious. Remember only 6 numbers will come out. Think about the odds anyway. You will be okay. You are a wonderful person.

                              I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to reply and leave a few kind words, It's greatly appreciated. I will admit that I didn't expect to win anything at all when I purchased $100 worth of lottery tickets as the chances are nextt to impossible even with a million tickets, and so it came to pass. I don't want to turn this into a thread about my problems but I thought I'd let you all know the issues I'm facing are not money or health related. It's far worst and they've destroyed any ambition or will to live that I've ever had. I figured with the remaining small ammount of money I have left (which was a gift from a relative so I'd be able to pay my car insurance)I'd give the lottery a few tries and if I was fortunate enough to win I'd have the means to distance myself from the life I've endure for the past 18 years. I'm almost convinced my time is near, and I guess I'm not strong enough to deal with the hand I've been dealt, barring a winning lottery ticket or some other miracle I don't think I will find the will to go on for much longer. I'm far too disgusted with myself and the life that was imposed upon me by the irresponsible acts of others,and all the emotional and psychological issues I face everyday are too much to continue with this meaningless, random existence that I never chose to endure in the first place. Please don't reccomend seeking professional help because It's futile in my case, I have problems that no one can ever help and I have no desire to be helped. I can never be content with who I am and I refuse to be forced to endure a lifetime of insecurity, social anxiety, and a painful feeling of utter worthlessness that will never fade. So once again thank you all for replying but please spare yourselves of the time try and help me because this is something that only I will be able to decide for myself.
