One aspect of universal credit stress I didn't expect was the monthly routine of stress that quickly forms. I've been on universal credit for two payments thus far.

The day of payment is a mixed blessing, before I even get out of bed I'm making my necessary bill payments for the month ahead on my phone, then I ring landlord to pay rent, then I place online food order.
