I am a compulsive shopper. I am 36 and have been this way since I was 18 and got my first credit card. My husband and I went through credit counseling about 8 years ago to pay off $18K worth of credit card debt. We now have another $11K (more actually-I used my Home Equity line of credit to pay it off 3 times). We do not use the cards anymore, but I have a card and this month alone I charged over $2K. I feel so alone. When I shop it is a high, but that wears away and I am depressed when the bills come in. I pay the bills out of my weekly allowance, but my husband would kill me if he knew how much debt I have.
