First off let me say that you are not alone and I know that doesnt help . I am not in forclosure but I have nowhere to live safe right now so I know how you feel about that.

In saying that I have a few ideas.. It might take awhile before your house forcloses?? You might have time on your side.. I dont know your deal with the bank but I would find out how long you have.. You can also try and rent out some rooms or a room in the home until you have to let it go. What about a short sale?? Look at Suzie Orman's site and see what she says about short sale or see if a lawyer can speak to you for free.. what about bankruptcy.. I know in some states if you claim bankruptcy you can keep your house.

If all else fails you are going to have to start looking for a small apt. or a share situation.. Do you have enough money to rent something?? times are very hard and tough and its devastating you have to lose your house but its not the end of the world.. Keep seeing your therapist for ideas and solutions..

Reach out to everyone you can and also social service agencies.. Check out food pantries and angel ministries in your area.

Good Luck to you

and Lurkers too

I'm there myself, in fact I'm past foreclosure and awaiting eviction.
