9 Ways Your Bad Debt Is Making You Sick

You have this huge cloud hanging over you while trying to be positive, but it is weighing you down and winning the battle despite your efforts because you really do not know how you will eliminate your stressful high interest debt.

The impact it is having on you is huge and you may not even be seeing all the signs. Here are some of the effects of how high interest debt can drastically deteriorate your health.

Sleepless Nights

You lie awake thinking of all types of plans to rid yourself of this evil. By the time you come up with an idea it’s almost time to wake up. You never get enough sleep. What’s crazy is that you repeat this cycle nightly.

Raised Blood Pressure

Yes, your pressure will go up with the anxiety filled inside of you hoping to eliminate this bad 4 letter word which has been holding you back. There are many instances in which a person will need to control their pressure with medication.

Physical Pain

You hurt everywhere because happiness has been stolen from you. Fatigue sets in making it difficult to get up and be active.


The rise of stress hormones brought on by financial debt can create a severe imbalance of chemicals in the brain. It is said that individuals with debt problems are 3x more likely to have mental health issues. This can lead to depression, as well as chronic anxiety and psychotic disorders.

Difficulty Fighting Illness

Your body is seriously out of whack because the cortisol and adrenaline in the body is ramped up thus robbing you of the necessary ability to maintain a healthy immune system. Your body then finds it very hard to fight infections.   


Do you really want to do anything knowing that if you spend money,  guilt takes over and manages to kill all the joy of hanging out with friends or family?


It’s embarrassing to know you have debt when everyone else appears to be just fine. Debt is like an STD (Sexual Transmitted Disease) - no one wants to talk about it.

Relationship Issues

Fights, screaming, crying, silence, frustration and break ups are all part and parcel because of debt.


Having to constantly think of debt and carry that burden can make special times very sour and decrease your sexual drive.
