Hi everybody, very nervous about doing this. However really hoping there are people out there that understand.
I am a single mum of 2 gorgeous kiddies. 7 and 4. The last 7 years have been such a horrible rollercoaster. I have struggled with depression badly for the last 10 years.On top of that I spent 7 years in a toxic relationship. It absolutely destroyed my self esteem and made me suicidal at times. My depression genuinely messed up my head, i fell behind with bills, i got late charges to pay, i used my credit card to survive, i took out loans for birthdays and christmases. I get no child maintenance. It was a terrible hole I dug. But i have been working hard and budgeting heavily and have managed to pay £3000 so far =)
I am finally free of the toxic relationship, I am receiving help for the emotional abuse i suffered via professionals. I am receiving help for my depression and anxiety too. The debt is still a weight around my neck i haven't managed to shift.
My aim to to become debt free completely, a clean slate financially!! Instead of paying every extra penny towards debt which only ends up paying interest most the time. I would love to save for a holiday for the kids. Just a wee caravan weekend or something. They have been witnesses to the toxic relationship, my lowest days and the financial strain. I want all 3 of us to have a fresh start, i want to start making happy memories now that part of our life is over.
Anyone who has suffered at the hands of a toxic relationship or the constant battle with depression and anxiety knows how detructive they can be to your life. Both together have completely ruined the last decade of my life.I'm working so hard to fix it, I'm taking all the mental health help i can get. So i'm here reaching out to see if anyone can please help me on this mission.
Thankyou so much for taking the time to read this. I really appreciate it.
