From what I can see...I have, minus the mortgage, 27,000 worth of stupid debt. I'm wondering....should I put everything in CCC and let them handle it for me while I'm getting back on my feet? I don't want to pay them the money, but I'm thinking about giving them Best Buy card since they are screwing me over. And I have a student loan currently in forebearance.

I have other bills which come in and get paid off quickly at least. I make well over 1000 a week, and some of that is on per diem because I'm out of my home state. I'm working on paying off what I can first, then going to start saving money back, and in the meantime, I'm getting my business as a true income source for me.

No, I wouldn't turn it over to them but it looks as though you should be able to snowball and take out about three of these debts pretty quickly which will greatly reduce your stress level.

I'm confused about something, though. It looks as if you are paying a mortgage AND paying rent somewhere else. Can you drop one of these two payments? Maybe I just don't know enough about your situation but that would also help you reduce the debt very quickly.
