I would help my family and friends, and do things that would make me feel wonderful.

Money wouldn't cure my issues, but it would make dealing with them easier.

I would see my therapist much more often.
I would not work and do something I believe has a real purpose to me (most likely work with, rehabilitate and nurture animals) and spend more time on being creative.

Here and there, I may indulge a little more in drinking and binge eating, but I think I would mostly use the money for good things, aside from some frustration shopping, maybe.

No, money could not get me a new pancreas, liver, kidneys and GI system. It can pay for the pain killers and the mental health drugs but nothing else.

I would not want to have something like 100 millions. I wouldn't know what to do with it. It would probably destroy my life. I'd want enough to maintain my current, familiar, modest, lifestyle with few minor improvement (like moving to a mild climate) and to be able to afford decent medical care, but without having to work. I would not want to change much in my life, get used to new things, etc.

Would that make me happy? Possibly. Money buys comfort and security and I lack both at the time.

It would defiantly open my life to better health care.

I would love to travel and experience new things mind and body willing.

I wish I were wealthy, money is power. I would be able to afford my own place like a hobby farm and help to maintain it. I would continue to work on songwriting because it's a way to release emotions and develop myself creatively. I could pay off my mom's house for all she's done for me. Maybe even my brother's. I would do some traveling, see places I'd like to see. Maybe own a 2nd home in a southern state for winter. Along with nice cars. I used to say I start a business and employ people if I won the lottery but really I'm more selfish than that.

Money is important in this this capitalistic society. However, I don't think money is everything. I need it to buy certain items but it can't buy me a new brain nor give me back the years I lost to mental illness. Thus, I don't place that much value on money itself but on what it can do to improve other people's lives. I have been homeless without money and know that money can provide shelter and food. I know that money can buy me nice things. But, money is not worth fighting over and stealing if one has enough of the basics. Money itself is not evil but the love of money could be evil. I'd rather be poor which I am and be happy with the small things in life than be rich and have many things but no satisfaction from them.

I wouldn't be cured, that's for sure. Maybe it would help with health care.

I think it would help, and maybe I'd be better. But money doesn't make trauma go away.

i don't and would never want to be wealthy. if i were just able to comfortably live, be able to afford that basic bottom of the needs hierarchy without worry, it would solve a portion of my problems. but it wouldn't help anybody else. win me the lottery and i would just buy my mom a house, put myself through college and donate the rest. the wealth hoarding in this world is demonic, it's a plague, it's killing the world.

I heard a reference to "that great religion of the world" recently. They were talking about capitalism.

I do want to focus on kindness and gentleness.
