Q. Are you in other forms of debt and how do you handle budgeting?

I am in many forms of debt! I have been for some time, since separating from my husband 10 years ago but as a self employed single parent this has been an impossible spiral to get out of. Since Covid and lockdown it has become harder as I couldn't work from March-Sept due to covid and lockdown and now we are in a 2nd lockdown and some work is cancelled again. I am trying to focus on rent and food but other things may not be getting paid. I am also a student and I have not been able to pay my university fees or library fines. My kids need some basic stuff like shoes that aren't school shoes but this is all on hold until I feel confident that our income will be bouyant enough.
