Credit card charges: Financial problems 'can result in physical illness'

People facing unmanageable credit card charges could end up being ill, as financial worries can do "strange things" to our bodies both mentally and physically.

That is according to Kim Stephenson, occupational psychologist and founder of online resource Taming the Pound, a free resource designed to help people get control of their thinking about money.

He said: "We're not designed to deal with constant stress like ongoing financial problems. If we face them, it does strange things to our body and brain chemistry. It can result in us being physically ill or having relationship or mental problems.

"If you're getting health issues such as bad sleep, irritability, inability to decide - get help."

Mr Stephenson added that it is important not to bury your head in the sand as "running away" will not help.

A recent report in The Lancet revealed that there was an increase in suicide rates between 2007 and 2009 in most countries.
