Poster Child For Shopping Addiction & Compulsive Spending

I am overwhelmed by how much I shop - frequency, quantity, and the amount of money i spend. I am 41 years old and have been this way my whole life. I remember as a kid that my mom and i would spend our weekends at the mall for fun. We still love to shop but she is not out of control like I am. I'm married with an 11 year old daughter and a great husband who sadly doesn't understand or have tolerence for my out of control shopping so I hide it from him. I have about 13 credit cards, most of which are maxed out, and in the past two weeks alone I have spent over $2,000 on clothes (which I don't need), decorative things for our house, and purses, shoes & jewelry. It's gotten so bad that I don't even know what else to do with my time on the weekends. Like seriously, I have no idea. Plus i love to shop. I need help!!! Can anyone relate??

I know exactly how you feel. I could easily be you. I'm no longer married so that income is gone but I have maxed out a few credit cards. I can spend 1,000 easy in one day
