The real cost of being in debt should be measured in sleepless nights, relationship breakups and stress induced health issues according to debt advice websites, www.talkaboutdebt.co.uk
Online PR News – 01-September-2009 – – Everyone counts the cost of debt in pounds. But the real cost of not getting debt advice is a personal one, with nearly every aspect of their personal, family and professional life being affected.
Nearly half of the people survey by Talk About Debt said debt was stopping them getting on with their lives, and 77% said it was making them act differently towards their family.
Worry, sleepless nights, drink, lies and arguments are just some of the tell tales symptoms of financial hardship. But we still like to suffer alone and for a long time before seeking help.
