That Deleterious Disorder Called Debt Stress

Pop quiz – what is the most overlooked part of the credit card debt phenomenon, especially since everybody seems to be making such a fuss over the numbers? Stress. Credit card debt, after all, can cause fantastic stress and can ruin your life if you let it get a hold of you.

Let us admit it – it’s no joke coping with this kind of stress, but you too can cope with it in a more effective manner. Stress is as bad as an addiction, always hanging around, bringing you down, making it hard to live your life the way you want to. If you can recognize it you can deal with it.

Symptoms of Stress – A Brief Recap. There are an awful lot of symptoms that can be caused by stress. Here’s a quick rundown of the more prominent: forgetfulness, an inability to focus, depression, short temper, lack of sleep and headaches – a lot of them. If that nagging headache, for instance, is something you can’t quite associate to stress, you might as well see a health care professional for advice.

Who Gets Debt Stress? Almost everyone who has debts is stressed about them. Many work-related absences and worse, work-related suicides are triggered by some form of debt. With more and more students and graduates getting into debt, they are fast becoming the number one victims of debt-related stress at its worst.

The average adult has about thousands of dollars worth of debt. Even the movers and shakers of business fall into debt, what more so the average adult man or woman? Cliche as it sounds, you are not alone – there are probably millions who have bigger debt problems than you may be experiencing.

How You Can Take Action.  People are normally ashamed of admitting their cause of stress is related to seemingly insurmountable debt. They fear that their families will brand them as “losers” and their friends will turn their backs on them once they discover that they aren’t as solvent as they make themselves out to be. But as it often applies in many life situations, talking about it can help. Keeping it all inside yourself will make you much more stressed. It is especially important that you talk to your partner. Never underestimate the support that your partner can give you.

With that in mind, the next people you would want to turn to after your partner would be a financial advisor and personal, preferably professional counselor. In other words, you want to talk to somebody who is well-versed with financial matters and a medical professional, like a psychologist or psychiatrist. Do not let this opprobrium get in the way of your health, particularly on the mental side of things.

Get on a solid plan to get out of debt and manage your finances. Ask yourself how you got into debt – retrace those steps. After you have gotten to the bottom of the problem, map out your budget. Eliminate any unnecessary spending and save up as much as you could each month to settle your debt.
