If you have been suffering financially, even to the point of financial devastation due to your loved one's bipolar disorder, you might want to consider a debt loan to help get your finances back in order and get out of debt.


Millions of people suffer from bad debt, not just people with bipolar disorder.  Most of this debt comes from credit cards and other loans.  We live in a "fast-food" society, where not just the food is fast, but purchases are considered the same way – we want it, and we want it now.  Credit cards are an easy way to get an impulsive purchase, although they can build your debt quickly.


You may hear about different ways of getting rid of your debt, including debt counseling and, the (fatal) bankruptcy route; but you may want to consider getting a personal loan to pay off your bad debts.


This is a simple process – even more simple if you have a bank account in good standing. If this applies to you, you can simply go to your bank and apply for a personal debt loan. Of course, they will look over your credit history and see that it isn’t any good, but if you have a stable job, they are more likely to give you the personal loan.

Some banks have special loans that you can take out personally to deal with your bad debt.

Before you begin applying for personal loans, however, you should:

     Request your credit report (you can get one free copy annually)•     Attempt to negotiate with the credit collector to try to get a lower balance (this must be paid in one lump sum, which can be done with a loan)•     Do a final calculation of what you owe, so that you know how big of a loan to take out

Once this is all done, you will have all the information needed by the bank. If you choose to go with a bank that specializes in debt consolidation, they will negotiate with your credit collectors for you, so that you can owe the lowest amount possible. The lower the loan you get, the less you have to worry about paying back.


One of the best benefits of getting a personal loan to pay off your debts is the idea of only owing one institution. And all you have to worry about is paying one monthly bill.  Another benefit is that your credit rating will go up because you paid off your debts and are now paying on a personal loan.


The down side to all this is that, although using a personal debt loan can be a good way to get rid of debt, you have to still consider the reality of getting turned down. Some experts say that there is a better chance of getting approved for a high interest rate or restricted credit card than a personal debt loan. But don’t get discouraged, because even with the economy, there are still a lot of personal loans being given out to people with bad credit.  There's no harm in trying!
