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

Honestly, I am grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to appeal the amounts but I am so horribly stressed as to the outcome. I have two children under 5 to support. I hid the debt from my partner for such a long time because I was embarrassed that I had made so many mistakes that would cost us this amount of money. We are trying to save for a home but I doubt this will happen now. It had put such a large strain on both my relationship with my husband and my mental health.
