Oh no that must feel terrible. I lost $900 the other night - all the money I had saved to go on holiday to Melbourne. You can’t reverse it thought - only look forward. Make sure you speak to a counsellor about it. Ring one and speak to them now. Take care

Hi Nudgee,

I also lost the money I had saved for a deposit and some. I hope you are kicking on. Remember tomorrow's another day.

Don't give up the fight! Things will get better. Money can be replaced! Don't look back, look to the future.

You can do it!
