Trish is a personal trainer who earns good money per hour, but would not take on enough work to really have enough money to live the lifestyle she preferred. Credit cards would help make up the difference, maxing out the cards with thousands of dollars of debt. Spending gave Trish a high unlike any other. With her credit cards, she could have all the things she saw the affluent women have, like fashionable clothes and shoes. But those highs would also come with crashes into reality; it would take years to pay off those debts. Trish soon became ashamed when her younger siblings, who could manage their money, were offering to help her out. But Trish’s “rock bottom” came when she realized the money she making was just not enough and that for the time being, she’d have to live on a $1.65 a day.
