My mother wanted me to join a shopping addiction support gro

My mother wanted me to join a shopping addiction support group because instead of doing drugs or drinking too much to
numb the pain of assault in a previous relationship I buy things to fill the raging sadness. When my grandmother passed away in 1971 they found over $20,000 of clothes with the still on them in the back of her trunk. I think my mom fears I’m going to end up on the path her mom did when she was 11. I can’t save money and feel as though the only way not to spend it is to stay in. But then there is online shopping and flex pay which makes me put reason behind my purchases like ‘oh but it’s only $32 this week’ I know I need help but it’s scary to ask for it. I’m 24 and feel as though I’ll never have enough money for a house or even just stability. I also have ptsd and have to pay service dog funds next week. I got a promotion at work and hope with it I’ll save
more. I just don’t know anymore...

@Tundra That was my grandmother that had that much money. I have two credit cards that add up to about $2500 that I owe but other than that it’s mostly just me not having money to do anything in my life.

I understand I’m in therapy and have just come to terms with my coupon/shopping addiction today. I’m going to discuss it with my therapist tomorrow! I want to find local support groups as well.
