Shop Too Much

I think I must have a mental illness...and don't know where to go for help. If I had $100, I'd spend every penny on a new outfit even if I had bills due. That is a sickness. I am getting myself into money problems and my family is starting to hate me for it. I want someone to talk to that can help. If I had health insurance I'd go to a doctor or therapist.

I know how you feel. I can't keep money for nothing. I hate the way it makes me feel. I also hate the way it seems to be taking over my marriage!

I'm very sorry, I know what it's like to have a disease no one understands. And what makes it even harder is when people don't understand and blame you for not trying hard enough when there's really nothing you can do. <br />
you might want to check out www.shopaholicsanonymous.org maybe it'll help, you can inform yourself for free so I suppose it's worth a try. Good luck!!
