Hi! My name is Patrice! I am a 35 year old single woman. I work full time as an elementary school social worker, and have two part time jobs as a mental health therapist.
In my personal life I struggle with borderline personality disorder. For those of you who don’t know, BPD is an emotional regulation disorder that also impacts impulse control. As a result, I have gotten myself in trouble over the years with my spending. When I’d get depressed I’d go on a retail therapy shopping spree or take the first trip out of town to run away from my problems regardless of how much money I actually had available to spend. Over the past 5 years I have spent countless hours in intensive therapy working on myself and am in much more control and living a much healthier life, but still have all of this debt following me and feels so overwhelming even with my three jobs. I would appreciate any help I could get from kind and understanding people to help me in my efforts towards eliminating that debt.
Thank you for your consideration,
