I have a very unusual,and terrible financial mess and need help. Can anyone advise me?
I need someone who knows what they are talking about to give me some financial advice. I am a senior citizen and everything has went to hell in a handbasket. I am not very well and the stress is more than I can handle. I cannot do this anymore. I don't need people to look at me like an idiot because I am in such a mess. It was a whole long list of things many of which I had no control over. I have many unusual situations and problems that I need help with. We should have declared bankruptcy years ago and we could have straightened this mess out by now but we didn't and now I'm not sure if it would be the best thing to do for a number of reasons. But something has to change. Can anyone help me? I can't afford a financial advisor and I don't know one that would deal with a mess like this. Where can I go?

talk to trusted family members, and let them know you need help. Then get to a credit counselor that works for free. Do not pay anyone to help you.

If you have children, sit them down and tell them about this. As a senior citizen, you must be constantly aware of scams that make promises they can't deliver on. If you don't have a child or close, trustworthy family member, then talk to your banker.
