Making payments but barely breathing financially. – Julie

Debt Guru,

I have close to $25,000 of unsecured debt that is causing me a great deal of worry. When my husband was working fulltime and making a good living the payments weren’t a problem. As he is now disabled and suffering from leukemia, I am not sure what to do.

My income is half of what it was and my bills are not! I have talked with firms that say to quit paying my bills and work with their program….that is very scary to me as I have a good credit rating 720 and pay my bills on time. I am afraid of how I will be able to continue these payments. What should I do?
