<<If I sound thoroughly peeved, though, it's probably b/c I've come across two people in the last week who are completely in control of their lives, but just don't recognize it. Cable666 is one of them. The other one is much closer to my home.>>

I don't get it. I don't think I'm anything like the woman you descibe. I don't drink, do drugs, gamble, or do anything else "questionable". I work hard at my jobs, and my friends think the world of me. My financial problems have not affected any of my relationships. I haven't complained or asked any friends or relatives for help.

My only crime is being up to my eyeballs in CC debt and considering BK to get my life back on track.

Please explain the similarities.
