"The Council has put up the street Xmas lights. Adverts on tv, radio and social media for gifts to buy.
Anxiety is rising from the pit of my stomach.
Each year I am reminded that as a single parent on low income, how worthless I am.
My income has dropped again due to DWP budgeting loans repayments and council tax arrears being deducted from benefits.
Yet nothing done to chase missing child maintenance payments."
