22 year old step daughter has been private school surfing, has attended 4 different private christian school majoring in sociology. She has an eating disorder (ED) and rarely is able to go fulltime because of her health. She is doing much better with the ED, but already has $40K in school loans and another year and a half to 2 years to go. We can't afford to cosign any more loans, we carry $8K plus her $13K car loan. If she defaults or decided to kill herself with ED, we are in so much trouble financially. She just doesn't get it, and thinks we , her dad and I, are "doing this on purpose to her mom", who is signing school loans with her.
