If I had $8K in credit card debt, I'd definitely be a little stressed out. We have a mortgage and student loan payments every month; I'd hate to also have a credit card payment on top of that.

I found $8k shocking, too.

this makes me feel not as bad about my $3,000 credit card debt. It's stressing me out though and i am trying to get rid of it and not use credit cards anymore.

If I don't have the money to pay for it, then I just don't charge it on my credit card. I honestly don't understand being in credit card debt considering most people have mortgages and student loans.

Wow. $8,000 on AVERAGE? I would be so stressed all the time if that was me.

I only have medical bills and a student loan. I wouldn't be able to cope with credit card bills too.
