Hi there brown72
From your post, I assume that you live in the US? We specialise on giving advice to UK debt problems on this forum so I am not sure how relevant my answer will be to you. If you are in the UK, my advice would be to consider taking a mortgage against your property to consolidate your debt. Goven you have 100% equity currently and if your credit rating is reasonably goos, this would seem like a sensible course of action for you.
