    I have not always been the best at handling my money and in 2007 I filed bankruptcy...I have other bills that I am having to pay on as I go that I couldn't put in the chapter 7...During the summer I got into an accident in which I was air-lifted on life-flight that I owe 8 grand on now,plus other hospital bills...I have health ins. but it only covered half the charge for the chopper ($15,500.00 for 40 miles!!!) They charged me $510 to put me in an ambulance and take me 75 yards across the street to an air lift pad!!! I want to pay all my bills-even the 12 grand that I ever so foolishly filed chapter 7 on- but I don't want to put my family or myself into a bind trying to pay this stuff....

    Pick the smallest bill and put everything you can afford at it. While the smallest may not be the best (in terms of interest and such) it will make you feel good to pay something off. Keep paying them off in order of smallest to largest.

    Too late. It looks like you need to work two jobs now. (I worked two full-time jobs for years to make ends meet.)

    Run-Away I will pray for the forgiveness of these bills. God has done that before when I have prayed for people who owed money for medical bills, Please pray for me as well. I had a heart attack a while back and need money to pay my house bill. I can't really work right now. But I will get to praying expect a merical becasue one is coming, I always get my prayers answer when i pray for others, prayers for myselfs not so much.

    I drive a wood chip truck from saw mill to paper mill and can haul 24/7 if I want so I have all I can do as it is without getting another job...Can only work so many hours before my personal life and spiritual life start to suffer...

    I will also pray for the Lord to give you a better Job. I have hailed logs before myself.

    Find a church that has a 'Financial Peace University' program or a Consumers Credit Counseling Service. They will help you.
