Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

Currently working to earn a living unlike all the drugged up dole bludgers, paying off a mortgage, trying to live a decent honest life, this makes it very bloody difficult.

They won't be getting a cent off me!!

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

Absolutely disgraceful process!!

Every time I tried to log in and sort the payslips out from 3 employers over 5 years ago, the system wouldn't allow it to be submitted.

I managed to get into the local office once before the due date and then got told the line was too long and I wouldn't get to see someone.
Every time the online system failed I rang centrelink to sort it out and they just told me to keep trying.

How the hell are people supposed to try to prove their innocence to keep hold of their hard earnt money when the system can't even cater for the information they have asked for!?!?!?

I'll be ringing them tomorrow to start an appeal.
