My mom is in great debt. I don’t know how to help her. Though my parents are separated, my dad still sends us money for all the utilities of the house but my mom just can’t fix her problems. She is retired but all her money goes to pay debts with banks and credit cards. All my family has tried to help her at some point by paying some of the debt but she still manages to keep it. I tried to help her get a job, but she doesn’t want to work because she says she’s tiered and that she has many things to do. In a way my dad and I think she has a bit of a bipolar disorder because she doesn’t seem to understand her problem and she doesn’t seem to get that some things must change to improve the situation. At the moment, I can’t absorb any of her debts because Im a full time student. I really don’t know how to help her, I tried convincing her to go to a psychiatrist to see if she really had a problem but she refused to go. The only help she accepts is more money.
I really want to help my mom get out of debt. I need any ideas on how to decrease her credit card debts while managing her possible disorder. I don’t know how to make her understand that she has a spending problem and how to guide her out of it.
