    I'm not sure why you started with "Please discuss". Do you want us to tell us about the errors in your sentences or would you like us to have a chat about the expenses incurred by businesses and why the bank might give up on you because you're overdrawn?

    Re: I'm overdraft

    I want you to check my grammar mistakes.
    In "give up" I mean to split up,stop contact with me,because I'm always overdrawn and have problems with the bank.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Englishlearner, please note this:

    When you write in English, follow these main rules:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien, Russian).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Do not put a space after an opening quotation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a closing quotation mark.

    I knew that the expenses in this business were high and I have been forced to pay attention to them. I have been overdrawn for several months and I'm afraid the bank will stop supporting me as a result.

    Re: I'm overdraft

    So, my main mistakes often are that I use unsuitable words in exact situation, but it's hard for me to choose proper one. I can't understand why I can't use "lose trust" or "split up" that kind of situation?

    Re: I'm overdraft

    Also why "have been forced" is written in this tense? Shouldn't it be the action which happend before first action? ("I had been forced" happaned before "I knew")

    Re: I'm overdraft

    Please re-read your posts #7 and #8, bearing in mind the spacing and punctuation rules which you were given in post #4 and then check the spelling in both posts. There are some very lazy mistakes there.
