    I Hate Having Credit Card Debt

    It's like a dark cloud that is hanging over me at times. I hate having any debt! It's not as though it'll be impossible to pay off, but it will take years as long as I'm supporting a household on my own. Talking to other people, it's very typical these days, even in households...
